Ship Quality

This ship is a dream. The layout is perfect and decorating lovely. It is very high tech which we enjoyed.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Room was well organized and had some special features like the vanity drawer in the desk. Lots of room for clothing.

Ship tip

Lose weight before you go on the ship, because the food is delicious and weight gain is a given.

Montevideo, Uruguay

4 out of 5
We did the overview of Montevideo, and it was a good tour.

Buenos Aires, Argentina

3 out of 5
This is a big city, and traffic is awful. The other issue was there were demonstrations against the government the 2 days we were there which made traffic worse.

Disembarkation

1 out of 5
Viking put us in a hospitality room at the Hilton. We were there for hours, and there weren't enough chairs for the approximately 700 of us. Then they had an issue getting the buses organized to take us to the airport due to the heavy traffic. This was the worst part of the trip.
