Review summaryIt was an adventure. Not our best trip, but it was still very nice. Lots of nice places to relax on the ship. The ship itself does NOT handle waves well. I guess that is a risk of going on a smaller ship that can get into these smaller ports..... at least three nights I had to sleep with a pillow over our head because our room creaked by the moving of our boat.
Food and Dining
Our favorite place to eat!
We only dined there a few times, but we had great service. My favorite was the lemon ravioli
Appreciated a burger towards the end of the trip
Very basic and nice
The waffles and fruit were great.I didn't particularly care for the bread selection or the 'snacks' the rest of the day. A quiet venue
My favorite place to eat when the weather was nice.
Only sat there a few times. The afternoon teas did not appeal to me. I know many people liked this however. My husband never went, I went twice on my own. I like a chai tea latte and the servers didn't know what I was talking about.
Very well appointed
great selection of NEW and very clean books.
It was closed on 2 of the 3 occasions that I tried to use it. I don't know why.....they just said maintenance.
This was a very comfortable area with a nice retracting roof that worked very well. What a beautiful TV screen!!!!!! The ship showed the NFL playoff games there and it was great fun. I wish they would have viewed the College Championship Football game as well.
Only used it once as it is right THERE by the diners....The water level was lowered when sailing.
This was adequate for the size of the ship. My husband complained that there was nothing for upper body
Loved the changing digital picture at the top of the stairs.
Could have been just a tad larger.I think the pillows are a waste of time. Do they clean them????Having a few blankets there for folks was nice. I liked the variety of revolving chairs and couches
Service and Staff
Cabin / Stateroom
This is a relaxing ship. Very mature crowd. Actually, we found many of the travelers to be cruise 'snobs'....will 'only' cruise Viking even though they have never been on any other cruise line. We met several in that category. It was by far the most expensive of any cruise we have done.
Ports of call
Port Stanley, Falkland Islands Did not visit port
