Almost perfect.
"The first time we saw the Viking Sea was on "Mighty Ships" on TV. Right away we fell in love with the idea of trying it out. It seemed to us a the ideal ship for us: no kids, no Casino, no smoking, no bingo or any..."Read More

Escaping Illinois in January was a great plan! Unfortunately, the ocean was a bit angry and we could not dock at the first 2 ports. Additionally, excursions were cancelled because of weather. The Viking Sea is a beautiful vessel and the staff could not have been better. We enjoyed having a choice of restaurants, multiple bar locations, a luxurious spa and plenty of books for ...

We chose this cruise explicitly because there were no “at sea days”. We chose Viking because of stellar reviews with no casinos nor children. Being a very new boat, just 4 or 5 years old added to the allure. The airfare (which was included right from Victoria) was a bonus. Connections were in the acceptable range, but actual flights were hardly direct. It took 24 hrs pretty well both ways door ...

We have previously taken two Viking river cruises in Europe and chose this cruise because it would not involve a long round-trip flight to Europe before beginning our cruise. Also, we wanted to try one of Viking's ocean ships to see how similar it is to the river experience. Too many "included" shore excursions all looked alike. You pile onto a small van/bus, run up and down mountains and ...

This was our third cruise with Viking, one river cruise, one Adriatic ocean cruise. The ship staff from the valet to the captain were outstanding. Always friendly & helpful. The ship was great, too. Easy to navigate with lots of amenities. The size of ship is perfect for the ports we visited during the cruise. The number of passengers is excellent without kids & needless entertainment. If you want ...

The itinerary was what we were looking for -- all destinations, no days at sea. We had been very satisfied with our previous Viking Ocean cruise (on the Sky, an identical ship). But Viking has definitely upped their game in the last 2-1/2 years. The service is impeccable, and the food is delicious (even if they could use a little more variety in the vegetables at the World Cafe). Manfredi's is ...

We chose this cruise because we had never been to these islands. This was our 6th Viking cruise, obviously we love the ship, staff, entertainment Service etc. Of the nine ports we had 5 included excursions and 4 extra excursions. One of the extra excursions was cancelled when political unrest made stopping in Dominica unwise. The other three were excellent. they include a tour of Harrison's ...

We chose this cruise because of Viking’s excellent reputation and for the destination. We cruised to 10 ports in 10 days. Next time I’ll keep a journal so I can remember all the great locations. The only thing I wish was different is Viking’s choices of included excursions. I would appreciate more variety. I’m not crazy about mountain drives. And, almost all of the included excursions involved ...

For the most part the Viking cruise met or exceeded our expectations. The service staff were outstanding! Our cabin steward went over the top to make sure our cabin was always tiptop, Impressive to see the crew painting and performing significant maintenance at sea and in port. Even though we ate at the buffet most of the time, we felt there was a decent amount of variety to the menu ...

We chose this cruise because we had credits to use up, and the time and price were right. I'd never been to the Caribbean, so seeing a new island every day appealed to me. My traveling companion had been several times, but hadn't been to all the locations on the list, and she said she was happy to revisit the others. We signed up for the included tours for most places, but paid extra for the ...

First ever ocean cruise. Chose Viking because of an awesome French river cruise 2 years ago. The thought that went into this ship's design is amazing. The carpentry, the meeting coves and the spa additions are outstanding. Crew could not have been friendlier for the most part. Every time you passed someone it was "have a great day" or such. Room was excellent. The entire ship was kept spotless. ...
