Having been to the Viking many times we were very disappointed. The staff were as good as ever as was the food. We had a room next to housekeeping. I know they have a job to do but the noise they make chatting and dropping bales of towels and sheets at 7-30 in the morning is a bit much. It...

The main draw for us is the entertainment in its own club downstairs. I would say it is more attractive to more mature people. But having said that, we...

The staff as always were very friendly and helpful, the food is fantastic with an excellent choice and the Talk of the Coast didn't let us down! If I had...
