This was our first cruise. I wanted a small number of people and gentle water. Viking provided many choices for our meals. Everything we ate was well prepared and served as if we were dining in a white table restaurant with friends. No stuffy atmosphere.
Our room and veranda provided just the right space with ample storage for our clothing. Housekeeping came through twice a day to freshen our rooms. I was provided pillows that were not feather. I received the extra towel after asking only once for one.
Nightly port talks kept us well informed of where we were going and what we would see. Sitting on the top deck or eating in the open air restaurant provided wonderful views of passing towns and vegetation and more swans than I have ever seen before.
