We chose this cruise because we wanted a warm climate to escape from the winter, because we had never seen this part of the world, and because we love Viking cruises. We thoroughly enjoyed Key West, especially Truman’s Little White House. Our guide was excellent and made the rich history come alive. In Colon, Panama, we visited the Embera Native Village and were enthralled with the people and intrigued with their lives. Of course, seeing the Canal and marveling at the engineering genius of the locks as well as at the notion of the near impossible feat which was accomplished there by those who built it were trip highlights. We have never been disappointed in a Viking cruise. We are vegetarians and the kitchen crew always makes sure we are well fed and happy with their offerings. The food is delicious and the presentation is exquisite! We experienced choppy seas and high winds after our port in Cartagena and had to reroute the rest of the trip. Rather than stopping in Montego Bay, Jamaica and in Grand Caymans, we stopped instead in Nassau, Bahamas and had an extra day at sea. There were plenty of enriching lectures and onboard entertainment to keep us busy during these at-sea days. Their Nordic spa is a beautiful oasis. From the extremely well-equipped locker rooms to the wave pool, the hot tub, the steam room, the snow grotto, the sauna, the plunge pool, a cruiser could spend hours each day feeling pampered there. They have a very nice workout facility, a “jogging” track on deck 2, and all sorts of spa services that individuals can avail themselves of. Viking Ocean cruises are top of the line!

Cabin Review

Cabin 4123
There were pros and cons to being on the back of the ship. In turbulent waters, the infinity pool above us often spilled over onto our deck. But, when we were going through the Panama Canal, we had one of the best seats in the house.
