This West Indies Explorer cruise had weather issues.

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. ...

Another outstanding Viking experience!

We chose this cruise based on the itinerary and our desire to get out of the Northeast in the late winter. It was also a plus to have a short flight to Florida and to stay in the same time zone. One of the things ...

Too many cutbacks to the onboard experience

We've been on 8 Viking cruises over the past 15 years. The 5 river cruises were truly excellent, as were the 2 ocean cruises (Mediterranean and Baltic) which we took in 2015 and 2016 when the ships were brand new. ...
