Itinerary: Roof of the World

The Itinerary was amazing, the crew and staff were top notch. The ship, Viking Century Sun, suffered terribly from a faulty air conditioning system that kept cabins damp, clothes in the cabin damp, and circulated air that seemed laden with mold. This prevented many from using cabins except to sleep. Viking should have issued an advisory prior to sailing date of a/c problems. Passengers with respiratory problems should have been forewarned and offered the option of changing dates. Advance notice would have been client friendly.
Viking sells this ship as new in 2006. Closer looks at exteriors suggest that perhaps it was refitted.

The food was fine, carefully prepared and well presented.


Activities were well matched to the age and interests of passengers.

Excursion to the school was the highlight.

Highlights of our trip preceded and extended past the 5 days of cruising. Highlights were Tibet and Shanghai.
