Wanted to try a transatlantic cruise as an alternative to flying. And wanted to cruise on a smaller boat to avoid the long line-ups at embarkation and disembarkation. Although we were concerned that a smaller ship might experience a lot ... Read more

It came along at a time we could go for a very good discount. My husband and I loved the smallness of the ship and the amount of people. The entertainment and cabin service were the best we have encountered. The food was very, very good ... Read more

We had never crossed the ocean by sea, so we were anxious to see if we liked several days at sea in a row. Verdict: The time flew by! The activities (not to mention the wonderful meals) made us forget about time and just enjoy ... Read more

We had great expectations about this cruise from the reputation of Viking and the overall media advertising. However, there were some issues from the very start. We allowed Viking to arrange and book our flights. Major error on my ... Read more

Loved the fact that we were at sea for 8 days! Viking kept us busy. Weather was great so we sat out by the pool a lot. Guest lecturers were wonderful. My husband and I read three books and spent a lot of time meeting new friends. ... Read more

We chose the Atlantic crossing to have ample time at sea to relax, and a few nice ports. I will focus mostly on some things I hope will be helpful for future cruisers. We agree with most other reviewers that the ship is beautiful, ... Read more

Can't say enough nice about this ship, the crew and Viking in general. This is our fifth Viking cruise but our first Ocean. The ship is beautiful, just the right size (758 passengers on this transatlantic journey). Lots of sea days so ... Read more

The ship is lovely. It is so exquisitely decorated. The food in all restaurants was fantastic. We especially enjoyed the top of the line cuisine at the Chef's table. Service was so cordial. All of the crew were willing to help with ... Read more

Have had great experiences with Viking River Cruises, and wanted to see the Caribbean in a smaller vessel than the horrific 5 - 6,000 person mega liners. Viking seemed to fit the bill, we were not disappointed. Particularly liked the ... Read more

We were attracted to the itinerary. 9 islands in 11 days gave us a nice sampling of the West Indies. Great food, nice ship, interesting excursions. We enjoyed the excellent room service. Prompt, delicious, and food was steaming hot. Loved ... Read more

I had never visited the West Indies and wanted to get a feeling for the Islands in the area. The Viking Star is a beautiful ship if you like a calm Nordic vibe, which I do. This ship is spotlessly clean. Also the food is absolutely ... Read more

We desired a small ship experience focused on destinations. We did not want a casino, water slide, or other amusements instead of a learning experience. Our previous Viking river cruises met our needs, and the ocean cruises appeared to ... Read more

Although having travelled extensively abroad we have never fancied a sea cruise before and had not travelled with Viking on the river cruises. We decided to take the West Indies Explorer cruise as we considered this was the best way to ... Read more
