18-day South America Cruise with Unexpected Ending

Review for a South America Cruise on Viking Octantis

My husband and I took Viking Octantis’ repositioning cruise in March – going from Valparaiso (Chile) to Fort Lauderdale (Florida). This is Viking’s expedition ship and can accommodate only 378 passengers. We like the small size of this ship because it allowed us to walk anywhere without having to take elevator and the staff to passenger ratio was great! We got to know many staff members and ...

Best Trip Ever

First Time Cruiser • Age 50s

I had never been on a cruise and am delighted that the Lindblad/NatGeo trip on Seabird was my first. I could not have asked for a better experience. Everyone who worked on the cruise was amazing. Each person made me feel like I was the most important person on the boat. The food was like eating at a five star restaurant. The outings, which were included were great! I almost got to pat a gray whale ...

Lindblad & National Geographic excursions provide a dependable and high quality experience. Their knowledgeable staff are excellent at informing guests of what they will, and have encountered, and are always encouraging us to ask questions. We had several excursions captained by native people who took us close to Gray whales in the Magdalena Bay. We witnessed whales literally swimming a few ...

Good But Not Great

This review is primarily for people contemplating Viking Expeditions Panama and Scenic South America cruise. This is only my opinion. We are frequent cruisers and habitual Viking Ocean customers (1 river and 7 Viking Ocean cruises). We booked this one as it was relatively inexpensive for a lot of days (18) on a new Expedition class ship. We wanted to experience it and decide if we would invest in ...

Beautiful ship but definitely for Antarctica

10+ Cruises • Age 70s

We chose this trip from Santiago Chile through the Panama Canal to Ft. Lauderdale because we wanted to try an Expedition ship and I don't like cold weather. Everything is geared towards the Arctic however and there really wasn't much to do on the ship. We had a nature lecturer and a historian but the talks were mostly on the Arctic. The "toys" on board are only licensed to be used in Antarctica ...

Lovely Cruise, Needs some Improvements

We wanted to see Maya sites and wanted to try Ponant. We have sailed on Cunard, Celebrity, Oceania, Windstar, Seabourn, Holland America and Viking - 20+ cruises in all, 6 on Seabourn. I would say 80-90 percent of the passengers spoke French as their primary language. We enjoyed that. The officers are French, the staff Indonesian or Filipino. We were rather taken aback to see the captain ...

Not what we expected

Review for a South America Cruise on Le Champlain

10+ Cruises • Age 50s

We had such hopes for this trip. The ship & itinerary fit our needs on paper but in reality we were disappointed with the execution of this cruise. Not only did embarkation change from Puerto Morelos to Cozumel after booking our flights but the trip was advertised to include diving in Honduras. On boarded we learned Puerto Cortes was a dirty shipping port with no diving. The water was green ...

Great Ship; Great Crew; Poor Corporate Communication; Meh Itinerary

Review for a South America Cruise on Le Champlain

6-10 Cruises • Age 50s

Le Champlain is a lovely ship with only ninety-two cabins, 165 passengers and 115 crew members. We felt the on-board experience was excellent in almost every respect and were impressed that most crew members knew us by name, or at least by cabin number and preferences midway through the cruise. Ponant has had difficulties with the local Mexican government and they have been unable to embark ...

We chose this cruise to sail among the small islands of the Sea of Cortez with abundance of marine, birds, and reptiles. Professional team with Kit Masters leading. She made every effort to insure that everyone needs were met. There were many opportunities to snorkel, hike and view birds/landscapes from Zodiacs. Our cabin was very comfortable with Butler/attendant on call. The food could be ...
