We chose this cruise because of our great experience with a Viking River Cruise. There is also a person who had a detailed on-line review of about 20 pages which helped convince us. We refer to this cruise as our Carribbean Hurricane Cruise because after we booked the cruise those 2 hurricanes hit pretty much right along our route. The Cruise went ahead anyway. The hurricanes caused no problem to us, though one port stop was changed. We did see a lot of damage, however. The locals that we were in contact with were so appreciative to see us. My only criticism is that we didn’t always know what exactly what we would see on the included tours, so it was difficult to decide on which extra tours sign up for. Most of the tours were great but there were a couple where the tour guides were poor. Sorry I don’t remember exactly which ones. But we were dissappointed that the tour that was supposed to visit Alexander Hamilton’s birthplace, skipped it for time reasons. Perhaps the best part of the tour was the small venue nightclub on board, which the ship traveled in the evening. The performances by Jennifer and, her husband, Vince, and their band were terrific and so much fun. Jennifer is as great a singer as anyone I have ever heard. We have now booked another Viking cruise, this time for Alaska, in July 2019.

Great Cruise
