April 2015 - Viking Bestla to Europe
We were mildly pleased. The ship is new,a bonus . The accommodations are uncomfortably small. The room measures 10X18 includung a very small patio Room for one cramped chair, cannot open the drawers that are at the end of the bed by standing in front , you have to stand on the side. The bath is smaller than on a personal boat. The shower opens inward allowing someone to stand in front of the sink .
The bar area is nice.All meals were only acceptable. Nothing special. Ever....
The room steward was efficient and the wait staff was pleasant. The venue was as advertised. "Windmills and Tulips". The off boat tours were good and the weather was perfect.
Would only travel with Viking again if the itenerary was what we wanted and we wanted a newer boat than was offered by the competetion.
The 2 for 1 is a false advertising ploy. I have traveled with Viking before at the 2 for 1 rate and it really was. Not now.
Have done extensive travelling. We like cruiseing both on the Ocean and on rivers and canals.
