This was our second Viking and it met the high standards of the first one. The service was excellent. The food continues to be superb and the staff are the best. Like one big family. The shore excursions were just the right length and time. Being a short cruise little time was actually spent looking at the countryside as most movement was at night. The director was fabulously entertaining as were the wait staff. They all seemed to love their job, especially those that had worked on other cruise lines. They said Viking was the best. My one negative was when they were presenting the opportunity to buy travel certificates for future travel. It was not made clear that only 1 per person can be used per cruise. We did the Paris extension and very impressed with the care we were given from the ship through to checking in at the airport. Viking staff members were with us every single step of the way. The Paris hotel was fine and within walking distance of many fine restaurants.

Cabin Review

Explorer Suite
Cabin ES 311 I think
We had booked cabin 203 which was ample for our needs. However, we were ‘upgraded’ at the last minute to some sort of suite. Although the extra amenities were very nice, the suite had very little closet space and therefore very few hangers. It had only 2 drawers compared to 6 in the original cabin. I would never accept another upgrade like this as it turned out to be very inconvenient.
I feel they should ask before just upgrading.
