We are considering a cruise this fall (2007). We are not typical "cruisers," but traveled on the Royal Clipper (Star Clippers) this past year and loved the quiet, understated elegance of that ship. Can anyone compare the Viking experience to the Royal Clipper? I would also be interested in a description of the dining experience - if someone can give me that. We are real "foodies" so level of cuisine and service would be very important. Also - what is the food like in China itself - land excursions before and after the voyage.
Thanks for your help!
