This was our first cruise abroad and I could not have been more pleased. The sites were saw were amazing, the tour guides were knowledgeable and informative, the food was gourmet and delicious, the wine and beer plentiful and the ship crew was top notch - professional, friendly, helpful, and enjoyable. We had a wonderful time thanks in most part by Viking. They took very good care of us and treated us like royalty. I didn't have to worry about a thing and felt very comfortable and special. I certainly miss the pampering and special care I received while on our trip now that I am home. I liked that the ship wasn't huge (holding less than 200 passengers ) and that it was all adults. We got to mingle and get to know the other passengers and it wasn't far to any of the public areas from the staterooms.
My advice -- book this cruise and take Viking.
