This was our first time to China and we're very happy we went with Viking to show us this area of the world. The guides were very nice and helpful at every turn. They always make sure you have a great experience and are safe at all times. Our Viking experience was a bit different from going to Europe as we had a land portion that had to be done in order to see the sights of China that we wanted to see. Such as Beijing, Xian and Shanghai. This meant that we had to fly from a few cities. The flights were short and fine, and Viking made sure that all of our baggage was handled from departing our hotel room to our new hotel room. The included tours were very informative and well thought out. Some were very early in the morning, but that helped us to avoid some large crowds. We are looking forward to many more Viking experiences.

First time with Viking and first time to China - great experience!

Cabin Review

Cabin 302
Our suite was at the front of the ship and very spacious. We had a separate sitting and dining area as well as a nice balcony in the front of the ship. Although the weather prevented us from enjoying the balcony we were still able to go out and view the scenery at different times of the cruise.
