It was a first for us as we selected Viking for a trip to South America where we had never been. This involved going via Miami to Puerto Rico where we joined the ship. Unfortunately the day travelling there and the day travelling back are regarded as two day of your holiday so the 11 day vacation is really only 9 days of relaxation ! Anyway, the ship is superb and on arrival, at 10 minutes to midnight , a bottle of wine (red) and some sandwiches were waiting for us in our cabin. To be honest, nice as the sandwiches were, room service seemed a better option and the chicken salad was excellent. The room was slightly smaller that those we have experienced and we soon discover that there was rather a lack of drawers. Also the wardrobe was sited along the side of the bed and was of a good size but some of that was wasted as more drawers could have been fitted inside it without any loss of usable hanging space. The shower room was a joy with a cabinet that had plenty of room to move about in and even had a seat and also not a silly curtain but a glass door. Now for the icing on the cake..the whole room had a heated floor !! There are a multitude of places to find a quiet spot if you wanted to and there was loads of super comfy settees with reindeer skin throws. Deep joy ! Also a multitude of loungers with only the poolside indoor sea facing ones being towelled early by the Americans. The food was above excellent and with wine at dinner and lunch included a great experience. I will not go round the whole ship describing everything as others have done that for me but Viking have to be congratulated for providing an excellent product. Now the sting in the tail..I will not dwell on this too much as things were sorted out in the end but do check your sums if you add on a couple of nights post cruise. Just check the Viking price with the actual hotel price !
