My husband and I were disgruntled Royal Caribbean customers: the service got worse as the ships got bigger. Our last RCI ship had 6,000 passengers (Viking carries 980 max) and 17 decks. Since positive reviews and chat rooms pointed to Viking, we booked the 14 night "Around the Caribbean" which covered Bermuda, St. Kitts, St. Lucia, Curacao, Jamaica, Aruba, and Grand Cayman. We did an excursion at each port, all were outstanding, especially St. Lucia. Viking Sky, built this year, and had numerous seating areas with little quite nooks tucked in all around the ship. The chairs and sofas were very comfortable. Dining in all of the restaurants was a treat. Contrary to other lines whose specialty restaurants charge for their services, Viking did not. So we indulged in all of them multiple times. House wines and beer are included free of charge with lunch and dinner. Service was impeccable.

Best Cruise Ever!

Cabin Review

Cabin 5585
Our cabin was HUGE with so much storage space that we did not use 2 drawers. It even had a coffee maker which was a delightful surprise. The bathroom was again huge for a ship, with ample storage spaces and a shower big enough to hold 2 people--once again a far cry from the tiny capsule on RCI. It even had heated floors! Another unexpected surprise was that each deck has its own FREE launderette with 3 excellent washer/dryers. Detergent is supplied.
