Viking Osfrid

9 Night Portugal's River Of Gold (Lisbon To Porto)

Sail date: April 23, 2017

Ship: Viking Osfrid

Cabin type: Balcony

Cabin number: 207

Traveled as: Couple

Review summary

The Osfrid is one of the smallest ships in the Viking fleet, but very well designed for this trip.  Many in the crew were Portuguese, quite engaged and very committed to serving their guests on a very unique itinerary.  Our only major disappointment was that the bed in our cabin had a notable and unfortunate peak in the center of the mattress which made a comfortable sleep more difficult than it should have been.

Food often good, occasionally great, and a very few times not so good. Two al fresco dining rooms were extremely present.
