Overall trip was great. The arrival was handled with such ease and made it the start of a great trip. Ship was very well appointed and crew and staff did a great job of welcoming and very nicely setting boundary's. Ports of call were very interesting someday's we wished we had more free time in cities, but we have made a list and are looking at how we can go on our own make this work. Service on board was beyond anything we had expected. Staff and crew were always neat, clean, friendly, and always willing to help. Who ever handles this for your company is outstanding. Dining was a fun time we like most settled in with "table mates" which almost included the wait staff.Food was very good the only thing I would have changed was when we went into Germany the wine was changed to a very sweet Riesling. Wish we had had choice. My wife and I are talking about other Viking trips we can take,

Cabin Review

French Balcony
Cabin D 323
Some things - waterproofing in shower leaked a couple of other minor things but we knew we were at the very end of the season. I think the ship on more trip. Talking to the cabin steward he said the ship would have a complete inspection while in winter port.
