Dress Code Issue

This is a very good ship probably aiming at the high end of the market. Lacks some of the sophistication of Regent and Crystal in terms of service and certainly in terms of passengers. Viking really need to make it ...

Great itinerary, great new ship

Original cruise was to embark in Istanbul, but was changed to Athens due to unrest in Turkey. Disappointing, but understandable. New ship, large amount of space for guests. Modern, not ostentatious décor. We were ...

Overall we had a great time - there were quite a few rough edges but we attribute them to the fact that the ship was brand new and many things needed to be ironed out. Our relative took the same cruise in Sept. and ...

The interior designers of the ship deserve an A+ rating. They really gave great thought in details. Tastefully decorated decor, many secluded comfortable areas to relax and enjoy the surrounding, read a book or ...
