Sail date: June 12, 2010

Ship: Viking Schumann

Cabin type: Oceanview

Traveled as: Couple

Review summary

The ship was old, rooms were poorly decorated.  The food was very good and the bartender was fabulous.  Most of the places we visited were at odd times where we couldn't shop or if we could, we were only there for 4 hours and couldn't shop and sightsee.   Others who had been on Viking cruises thought this ship was "a dump".  Super over-priced.
