Review summary

The folks at Viking really know how to spoil their customers.  Everything about the cruise was wonderful.  Even though it was supposedly the rainy season, it never rained once.  The food was excellent.  All of the employees on the ship could not have done more to make it a terrific adventure.


We will cruise with Viking again!

Ship Quality

We did think that our French Balcony room was rather small. But, it was designed well.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
It was organized/designed very well, but small for two people. Only one person could pass between end of the bed and the counter/storage drawers at a time. Having the ability to open the sliding window and put your head out into the air was really nice.

Ship tip

Don't over pack. We ended up with too many clothes.
