This was our first Viking Ocean Cruise (We had previously been on a couple Viking River Cruises.) and our first Atlantic crossing. It won't be our last! Everything was perfect from booking to disembarking in Miami. Because the Atlantic crossing has few ports to visit, my wife and I were both concerned about so many days at sea. We should never have been concerned as we were kept busy beginning in the morning with a great breakfast followed by a workout in the beautiful fitness center and spa. The pool, lectures and other provided activities kept us busy throughout the day. Lunch either poolside or in one of the dining areas was always great. Dinner in the evening was followed by a show and then either dancing and drinks in Torshavn, a movie under the stars or maybe a brisk walk around the deck.
We have cruised with at least 6 other cruise lines in the past, but none compared with Viking. From the absence of photographers always wanting to take your photo to complimentary beer, soda and wine provided at lunch and dinner it quickly sets Viking apart from the others! The free speciality restaurants were amazing. If you like steak, don't miss the ribeye at Manfredi's! Entertainment was low key but always fun and entertaining. Don't expect a Vegas casino type production, but do expect to have an enjoyable hour of entertainment.
We enjoyed our first ocean cruise with Viking so much we have our second one planned for October.
