Review summary

The Viking Var team made my vacation experience one that I'll never forget.  The longship was spotlessly clean and quite easy to move around on.  The public places were roomy, airy, and quite comfortable.  The staff was incredibly attentive and responsive to my particular needs.  The food was incredible and reflected the local culture of each stop we made. This was first trip with Viking and it certainly won't be my last.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
While small, the cabin layout provided as much space as possible. The beds were comfortable and the bathroom was well-equipped. More electrical outlets would have been helpful.

Ship tip

Don't hesitate to converse with the staff. They give wonderful advice and provide lots of helpful tips. However, be sure to come prepared for all personal health issues as there is not a medical staff on board and they don't have any OTC remedies available.
