We opted for a deluxe cabin on the Viking Kirov gor our cruise. It was wonderful! The best vacation yet. Food was excellent and our tour guides were excellent. We were glad that we had the larger cabins, yet our cruisemates in the smaller cabins were fine. There were no complaints, they just "adapted". On another cruise with Viking on the Elbe River, we had a small cabin (120 sq.ft.). It was no problem. We just adapted.
