Viking took very good care of us and we can't wait to take another cruise with them.  They handled an unexpected "glitch" in a very caring manner.  I made some good friends playing Trivia.  The programs presented by Jay Christofferson, and Commander Cheshire were very good and an unexpected treat was the Rabbi explaining Judaism.

Cabin / Stateroom
PERFECTION! Ayu took very good care of us. Housekeeping went the extra mile for me. I slipped in the shower my first night and they arranged for me to have a rubber shower mat. Thanks ever so much.
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Most perfect ever!

Gibraltar (U.K.) We were directed to the wrong excursion. The money was refunded but I missed an experience I had really looked forward to.
Lisbon, Portugal
Had been here recently but my husband enjoyed the excursion.
Bordeaux, France An unexpected extra day here and wonderful Viking laid on an excursion to St Emilion--fascinating medieval city. Thanks Viking!
Le Havre (Paris), France I had been in Paris for New Years, so we went on the excursion to Honfleur--charming medieval town.
Greenwich (London), England
Spending an hour or two in London is better than not being there at all. I managed to get my favorite tea, stop at Neal's Yard Dairy, and have tea at Patisserie Valerie.


Casual clothes are fine--never put on the one dress I took.

Can I offer another tip? Book excursions early.
