We have travelled with Viking Ocean Cruises before and have always been impressed by the dedicated crew, the conveniences offered by the cruise line (24 hour room service, in-room mini-bar, all other included bonuses), and the excellent excursions. The guides are extremely knowledgeable and give us terrific insight into the area we are learning about. Also, the onboard lectures add to our enjoyment of the cruise. Our cabin, like all others has a veranda for relaxing, and viewing arrivals and departures from the comfort of our cabin. This was our third ocean cruise with our fourth coming up soon. We have been spoiled by Viking Ocean Cruises and cannot see the need to test other cruise lines. We appreciate the smaller size of the ship since embarkation and debarkation at the various ports is quick and very secure. We have witnessed the lineups waiting to board the giant cruise ships and don't want to waste our vacation time in huge lineups!

Fantastic, caring crew!

Cabin Review

Cabin 4014
So far we have been on deck four and found that even on the rare occasions where there were rolling seas we were comfortable. The space gives us plenty of room to relax and everything is very convenient - space for luggage storage keeps that hidden and out of the way until it is time to start thinking about the trip home. Closet space is generous and the multitude of drawers makes for easy organising.

    Again, wonderful views and the guide gave us a good understanding of their "island paradise"

    Our guide gave us ample time to explore and take photos of the beautiful landscape.

    We had a beautiful stop at one mountain home with fantastic photo opportunities and samples of island food and punch. Excellent! The rest of the drive gave us a good understanding of island life. The guide was knowlegeable and very proud of her island home.

    This was our only disappointing tour. The island roads that were used were not conducive to making photo stops and our one chance to explore was at a mall. We can do that at home! There was a fort nearby and that eould have made up for the limited photo ops during the rest of the journey but the guide did not take us there.
