We travelled on the second Viva trip out of lisbon.
I wasn't going to leave a review as I like a ship when it is not too crowded, and too many positive reviews will only encourage crowds!!! But.....then I thought that was a bit unfair, so here goes.
Embarkation in Lisbon was a dream. We arrived at the port at 10.50am having walked from our city centre hotel (about 15 minutes walking) and were on board about 15 minutes later. There was not much of queue through security or check-in and no waiting to board the ship once through.
Loved our cabin (midship, deck 10). Very spacious (both the room itself and the bathroom). Comfortable bed, lovely big TV. Plenty of storage, and no noise issues. Balcony was small but fit two comfortable chairs and a little table so what more could you want!
While servicing is now only once a day, we had no issues with this and every day except for one, we left the cabin to get breakfast and it was made up by the time we returned to grab our stuff to leave the ship.
