We like the size of Viking ships + no children, no casino, excellent food, comfortable cabins, friendly staff, & always an educational talk to sit in on.
Cabins...always a great view with spacious balcony, we became spoiled by cabin stewards...clean towels 2x daily, bed turned down nightly, knew our names.
Food- Enjoyed variety of menus & venues- Wait & bar staff are very efficient & personable. Interesting to meet staff from different countries, remembered special requests. Dining room was so nice, every night we had a private table by a window. The food was outstanding.
Entertainment...both educational & enjoyable. Can't say enough about our wonderful Cruise Director, Giuseppe (from Italy of course...so informative and entertaining..and so talented,himself. We learned from "our" professor, the history, culture, geography of each Country we visited.
Ports/shore excursions..again, fun, adventurous and efficient. We did the included (bus trip) tour at most places, which were very good. Enjoyed the optional excursions in St. Petersburg, Russia so interesting. I've been all over the world with many tour companies but Viking really goes all the way to make your vacation a great experience.
Nice room, great view on balcony. This room is in a very central area of the ship. Easy access to all your destinations on the ship.

My favorite was the City subway tour. Was fun to get in there and mix with the citizens. Beautiful interior stone work. Walked the city streets and enjoyed a drink at the top of a luxury hotel rooftop.
