Viking Ocean does a top notch job. Embarkation was a breeze. No lines. The customer service was exceptional. The food was excellent. The buffet served pretty much same food as main dining so was nice to have that option. Ate at Manfredi's several times as the food was so good (warning - portions are big!) The Chef's Table was really good - ate there for the Asian and Italian evenings. Really good. Crab, steak, and sushi offered everyday. Burgers at the pool eatery were very good along with salads. Can't say enough about the excellent food. Wine was just barely ok - wished Chardonnay was offered. Drew the cruise director was the best. He and Ian made the entertainment and activities all the better. Enjoyed the fabulous talented singers and dancers. Free access to the spa was wonderful. Used the facilities several times. Gratuities should be included for the cost of the cruise. The included shore excursions were ok. Typical bus sightseeing tour and often did not offer much information. We did six included and only one (of the included)was very good. Disembarkation was not good. Viking required everyone out of cabins by 8 AM. Everyone was then transferred to the airport 6 or more hours prior to flight departures. So hundreds of people waiting 2 hours until we can check in. Cannot check in more than 4 hours before your flight. Really was a nightmare in the Puerto Rico airport as extremely limited seating. The itinerary could of been better with fewer days at sea. Other cruise lines offer Amazon River with more port visits. Overall, really enjoyed our cruise and want to cruise with Viking again. Love Viking!

Beautiful Ship! Amazing Cruise!

Cabin Review

Cabin 4079
Cabin was very comfortable. Loved the heated floor in the spacious bathroom.
Good quality robes and hairdryer. King size bed super comfortable. Would of liked another couple drawers for clothes storage. The in cabin coffee maker made the best coffee. Nice to have the fridge with soda,water & snacks. TV offered lots of options. Needed a magnify mirror in bathroom. Wish we brought our own binoculars as the pair in the cabin wasn't very good. Good free wi-fi. Overall, a beautiful cabin.
