Favorite: From an informational standpoint, the Port Talks and Lectures were absolutely wonderful! It provided everything you needed to know to get the most out of each port. As far as the ports go...hard to say which was a favorite. Dubrovnik really stands out as we had a chance to walk the city walls in almost solitude. It was magnificent!!! We took an underground city tour in Naples on our own...you should include this as an option...it was fantastic!!!
Improvements: The Viking Sea was a great experience. The only area of improvement was room service. Our steward, Adonis, was great...but the in room dining was less than spectacular. Rarely was the order correct at breakfast and once our dinner was not even delivered. This was after an extremely long day in Rome and the on board restaurants were closed. Other than the in room dining...everything else was impeccable.
Food and Dining
Service and Staff
The manager of Manfreds (forgot his name)...WONDERFUL
Our waiter at Manfreds (Abraham I think)...SPECTACULAR - he even arranged to have the pastry chef whip up some cannolis especially for my wife!!!
Pastry Chef (Ramesh??? - apologies for not knowing his name)...SUPERB - He special delivered the cannolis to our table and had a few sent to our room!!!
Cabin / Stateroom
Take advantage of the Port Talks and Lectures. The best part is, they are all recorded and available on your room TV. Also...you can access everything on your TV via your tablet or smart phone while onboard!!! Did not realize this until the last day of the trip!
