We booked this Viking Ocean cruise to get to South Colombia. Venezuela was skipped and we went to St. Kitts instead. Our cabin with a balcony was very nice. The ship was just amazing - beautifully decorated and lots of options for on board activities. The 3 lecturers were really informative and we attended most of the lectures. We attended tea once and that was very nice. We enjoyed the specialty restaurants several times. Food and service were excellent. No extra charges for included tours, and wine and beer at lunch and dinner. No lines anywhere during this cruise. Everything went very smoothly. Checking in was quick. Whenever we needed to go to Guest Services, we experienced no wait ever. Viking Ocean cruising is just as good as the River cruises we have taken on the Seine and on the Rhine. Keep up the good work Viking! Looking forward to our next Viking experience.
