Big disappointment for those of us who were on for 127 days not 40.

Review summaryThis cruise was advertised as a 245 or 127 day world cruise. Unfortunately neither sold and only 178 of the 930 passengers were on for the world cruise portion, unbeknow to the world cruisers Viking sold segments to fill the ship. That meant 700+ passengers got on/off the ship every two weeks and Viking entertainers repeated the same shows every two weeks for the 700+ new passengers forgetting about the 178 passengers who had already seen the shows. This happened six times in the 127 day portion of the cruise with an occasional, mediocre entertainer brought on board to supplement Viking's entertainers. Segment passengers did not know they were on a world cruise until after they boarded. We would not have booked this trip if we'd known how many very disrupting segments had been added, Viking should have notified us and given us the opportunity to cancel.
Food and Dining

Cabin / Stateroom
Avoid the speciality restaurant "Chef's Table" they have a set menu and do not allow you to order anything else. It's difficult for a couple who like different foods to find a night where both can enjoy the meal.
