The Voyage of the Vikings was a nice adventure. We had some very rough weather, a lot of rain, missed a few ports and some real cranky people but it all in the adventure!

Some of the acts were good, others were too boring.

Children's Programs

We had a concern with kids running "wild" and not supervised! They were running into the passengers like it was a playground!

Service and Staff

4 out of 5
Our waiters, room stewards were good but the Pinnacle Grill service was very slow.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
Our room was very small compared to other ships. It was like a "shoebox, with no couch and the closets were always in the way of the bathroom.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
Small and unhandy!

Ship tip

Din't get interior stateroom....SMALL!! Eat at the LIdo, at odd times. People would read books, newspapers, play games or just talk constantly and held the table, so diners could not find a table to sit and eat at!!
