I read a lot of bad reviews about this ship and about Vikings Ocean, but I think Viking was paying attention and they did a wonderful job in this 14 day cruise. The service was as expected from Vikings: Excellent. The ship is beautiful, and very comfortable. We are more interested on the shore excursions than the nightly entertainment, so for us the shows and port talks were good. Regarding the shore excursions the included are mainly a bus ride and a walking tour of the town, with some free time. The optional that we did were great, well organized and very interesting. We did not encounter large crowds anywhere because of the time of the year we went, which made the whole experience great. The food is amazing, the only restaurant that we personally did not like was the Chef's Table, but the rest were great. We were upgraded to a penthouse, but other than a free minibar, I think all the cabins are great. The bed was very good, enough space for all our clothes and more, the bathroom was large enough for both of us to be there. We are even thinking to book another ocean cruise with Vikings again.
