The ship was beautiful and new. Wintergarden and spa area were outstanding. Food was fine, but not as good as Oceania. Have free self serve laundry was a nice plus. Bathrooms in the cabins were perfect and had heated floors. Storage in balcony room was insufficient even for a relatively small amount of clothes. Free tours were excellent and well organized. A train was purchased by Viking to take 600 cruisers to Berlin. This day the the epitome of what a tour should be like. If you like to drink the included wine and beer with lunch and dinner was ok. The drink package for unlimited drinks during the cruise was reasonable. Wifi worked most of the time and was faster than some ships we've been on. Not enough to do on the ship. Lectures were good. Entertainment just ok and didn't really get started until the 2nd week. The dress code is very casual. Gym was ok but not enough elipticals. Good ports and nice staff. Glad we went, but probably won't go on Viking ocean ships again.

Don't take too many clothes and go casual. The onboard free laundry provides everything. Also, the drinks that you pay for are very reasonable compared to other ships we've been on.
