Review summary

The ship was great, the personnel was very attentive, and the food was terrific. The captain did everything possible to get us to certain sites by bus when we couldn't get to them by boat . Very happy to have taken this cruise. The excursion to see the Lip..horses was a bust. Waste of money.

Beautiful, well cared for. Would not take a balcony again instead we would take the French door one.

Ship tip

Many times we were side by side when docking with other Viking ships. Be prepared to have your curtains closed and not be able to use the balcony.
