Sail Date: Aug 2019
Cabin: Interior

Ship was in fairly good condition. Enjoyed most of the shows, some were excellent, others were mediocre. The ship was full since it was summer and kids were not back in school. The bars were the most part good with the exception of the bar in the Viking Crown lounge, I think its called Olive or twist. On the other hand, the Bull and Bear Pub was excellent. This was a port intensive itinerary that stopped at 5 ports of call with only one day at sea so I tried to do everything during the week after we got back onboard the ship since I knew the last day at sea all the venues would be packed.

The flow rider was a blast, although the waiting lines long.

Food was decent, not great. There was no tuna fish or egg salad in the Windjammer. The food in the dining room was either good or poor. By the end of the cruise we mostly ate all of our meals in the Windjammer since there is so much more selection than in the dining room.

Cabin Review

Interior

Cabin 4V

Cabin was small but sufficient for a week. Small sofa and two beds, adequate drawers and closet space. This cabin is located next to a crew access area and sometimes at night we would get woken up by banging noises, not to frequently but it did happen. Beds were comfortable. Cabin steward was very good.

Port Reviews

Antigua

Least favorite port. We walked around the port area, very poor, went to a small market and bought cheap braclets. We should have taken an excursion at this port.

San Juan

Love San Juan, we flew down two days early and had a great time. Went to El Condado area to visit the Oasis bar. Had a great time. Walked the city and Old San Juan as well.

St. Maarten

I've been here so many times I just walk around and shop. It an excellent port, visited the Casino to play slot machines.
