We had sailed other ocean cruise lines. But we chose Viking ocean for 6 reasons: only 930 passengers; no passengers under 18 years old; all rooms had a balcony; shore excursions were included; beer and wine were included with lunch and supper, food and service was outstanding. Viking has, maybe, put Viking "spies" on all the other cruise lines to find out what to copy and what to eliminate - and THEY DID IT! They even have do-it-yourself FREE laundry facilities. The food selections, preparation, and service was outstanding and surpassed all previous sailings. The Viking personnel who met us at the airport were extremely efficient, professional, and friendly making the transfer memorable - especially getting us out of the airport in Rome with no stop at immigration - WOW - how did they do that? The shore excursions were timed perfectly and were a duration that was well thought out - very professional. Even if you are not on a shore excursion, Viking provides shuttle buses at no extra charge. They never "nickle and dime" you - when you disembark they smile and give you FREE water and have an umbrella ready for you if rain threatens. AND when you return they have a refreshment waiting for you.The guest services personnel were extremely helpful and available. Viking - you have truly spoiled us and won our ocean cruising hearts.
