A great cultural experience and trip

Sail Date: August 01, 2012

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

This is a cruise-tour in China that included several hotel accomodations and flights, plus the cruise part of the trip. The land part of the trip was exceptional, the hotels were 5 stars plus, and the flights and transportation were done just right.
Our general experience was very good.

Pros: The ports that we visited\, the hotel accomodations\, and the service on board

Cons: The optional Peking Opera was not what we expected\, very boring.

Recommends Viking Emerald? Yes!

Ship Quality
The ship in general was very nice\, clean and with many extras\, like a small gym\, a spa and massage place\, some shops.
Food and Dining
The food selection and quality was excellent.
Cabin / Stateroom
We were on deck 3\, and had a very humid stateroom\, like many other passanger. Our luggage and clothes inside them returned home very damp. The high humidity in the rooms made them very uncomfortable.
Service and Staff
Everyone in the ship was very friendly\, and always attentive to our likes and preferences.
The tours included were of very high class\, and variety. Some days seemed a bit busy but it was worth the extra activity.
