Expert on luxury cruises!

The move to a silver seas suite was well worth it at 744 square ft. now it will be difficult to go back to a veranda suite. We received from Virtuoso an upgrade at the Majestic Hotel in Barcelona and received the early check-in after the cruise, which was a great ending to the trip. The Virtuoso rep was Karen and she could not have been more friendly and helpful with our Virtuoso group, she double checked our vege requirements for our farm lunch and was just very lovely to be around.

Our cruise on the Anthem of the Sea was great.. The ship was beautiful and the service from our room steward to the wait staff was excellent.. I loved the special dining rooms it made it seem more intimate and the food was wonderful.. The only thing that was not perfect were the beds, they were really hard, but with that being said, if you like a hard rock bed, you will love it.. All and all a great trip.

Loved working with Mary Lou from Journeys Unlimited. She is always on top of our plans and is someone I consider an expert, especially on cruises. I would definitely recommend her to family and friends. As far as the Viking Douro river cruise, my wife and I thoroughly enjoyed it. We learned a lot about Portugal, their wine making, and cork production. I had lower expectations for this Portugal cruise, but what a pleasant surprise! Viking's hotel choice in Lisbon was the upscale Tivoli with a great restaurant on the 9th floor, capturing a fantastic view of the city at night. As usual, Viking folks were up to their usual great service.

Mary Lou was a pleasure to work with, she explained everything very well in regards to our trip. She would email us details about the ship and how we should prepare for our travels. She did not leave out any details and she made sure we had the best time on our vacation.

The cruise was wonderful! Mary Lou handled all aspects of logistics, dinner reservations, special Virtuoso tour in Estonia as well as pre and post cruise hotel arrangements. All we needed to do was pack our clothes! We appreciate all Mary Lou's effort in making the Baltic cruise a vacation to remember.
