We went with a group of friends for our first trip to the Caribbean. Overall, it was a very nice cruise and Viking did a good job. The embarkation from airport to ship was one of the smoothest we have experienced. Our room steward was wonderful! Any requests we had were met in a timely manner. The food in the main restaurant was good but we sensed that some of the servers were new and not as attentive as we would have expected. The wine and beer selections included at lunch and dinner were very good. The sushi bar in the World Cafe was phenomenal. The "included"excursions were just bus rides through the less desirable areas of the islands. My husband did book a submarine excursion that was cancelled when they arrived for it, so that was a big disappointment. St Kitts Railway cruise was enjoyable as was the morning beach excursion I went on with one of our traveling companions. The walking tour of San Juan was also nice and informative. It is 2 hours long and some uneven terrain. The specialty restaurants onboard, Manfredi's and Chef's table, are excellent. Chef's Table menu changes nightly but you can see the menu in advance of booking. We had an Asian inspired meal that was delicious! We went to Manfredi's twice and were very impressed each time.

Enjoyable Cruise!

Cabin Review

Cabin 4046
The bed was very comfortable but too close to the closet. It was difficult to access items at back of closet.
