Previous Viking cruises (river and ocean) have been tremendous. This experience, especially the embarkation and disembarkation were not good at all. Very sloppy and time consuming to the passengers...it was a shame and left a bad taste in our mouth for this experience. We sat for over an hour at the Miami airport waiting for a bus...the folks running the desk at the airport said they "forgot" to come get us. We then waited with other passengers for two hours to get off the ship resulting in us having to wait on four flights from Miami to Boston getting home at 1:30AM. 16.5 hours after we needed to vacate our stateroom! Not typical of a Miami to Boston journey but we wanted a closer flight than going to Europe for this one week vacation...it did not turn out the be the case on this trip. The ship's staff was very nice (as always) and the food quality was well done. Spa experience for my wife was wonderful. Ports of call (especially Belize) were average at best...nothing special for sure. Very happy to have the NFL playoff games on the big screen. One of the speakers was absolutely terrible and not representative of previous enrichment efforts. Very unorganized and a waste of time to sit though his talk(s). Many people left in the middle of his presentation.
