Review summary

Viking's cruise plan is well thought out. The Viking staff exceed expectations by any measure. The visible staff are helpful with explanations and assistance. The less visible staff are so good at keeping things immaculate and prepared for service that it is hard to believe there are only 50 staff in total. 

The chosen sites that are part of the daily walks are what you would expect. The transportation to the sites is excellent. One minor flaw is the uneven quality of the presentations during the day walks. It may just be me. Some presenters use a style which may be more suitable for young students.  

The Chef , both in style and in substance was beyond reproach. His servers ( I am thinking mainly of Tracey) were very well prepared to answer questions about the menu. The waiters were very comfortable to discuss the available wines. Housekeeping staff were unobtrusive and perfect at what they do..

This is my second Viking Cruise ( China a few years ago). Keep at it Viking. You do a fine job.

Ship tip

Some passengers hog the viewing tables and chairs daily. ( You can't change human nature) The deck blankets are so luxurious and comfortable you should offer them for sale (in simple colors)
