We chose Viking Ocean Cruise because we have taken 2 river cruises and we were extremely impressed with the staff, the ship and the excursions so we decided to go with Viking Ocean. The ship had so much to offer. We loved having the infinity pool to hang out at after an excursion. It was so relaxing and a great place to meet other people. The suites are fabulous, plenty of room to relax and enjoy. The housekeeping staff and other staff are very friendly and always trying to please. We felt the dining was a bit off for breakfast and lunch. We would sit at a table and there would not be a salt and pepper shaker on the table and it would take awhile before someone would come over to help us. The restaurants on the ship were excellent. The only disappointment was that the food did not match the ports that we visited. We felt the food on the river cruise was much better and the variety of food was excellent on the river cruise. We would take another ocean cruise with viking but we prefer the river cruises with less people on the ship.

Excellent organization and extremely clean!

Cabin Review

Cabin 5031
The bed is extremely comfortable and there was plenty of room. The sitting area was a nice size and we had plenty of room to move around and not feel cramped. The balcony was larger than on the river cruise and we enjoyed sitting out. The bathroom was a good size and plenty room for 2 of us to be in at the same time.
