Yesterday evening I received a phone call from Viking Customer Relations to discuss a concern raised in the review. I've done reviews on every cruise we've taken since the end of 2009 and no cruise line has ever called me about a review I've posted.
So I offer this compliment to Viking for monitoring cruise critic and responding to our concerns!
