Review summary

The staff of the Delling were friendly, helpful and professional. The longship was clean and modern and the food was fabulous. An issue with faulty air conditioning was handled well and it was obvious that passenger comfort was important to Viking. I would recommend the Delling to all of my friends. A great experience! I travelled with my mother but that choice doesn't show up below. Our room type also doesn't show up but I chose "ocean view," the closest choice to the French Balcony on a river cruise.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
This room was comfortable even though it was small. It is right next to the engine room, which was a minor irritant at times. I didn't care for the double-docking of ships because it doubled the noise in the room and exhaust from the neighbor longship entered our room on the night that there was no AC. On future trips, I'll request the little bit larger room and somewhere in the middle of the ship.

Ship tip

There is plenty of food and wine/beer!
