We enjoy sea days and this had 8 of them, which were blissful and relaxing The ship and crew were great, as were the food and facilities. St Maarten was a waste of time and the tour was awful on a rusty, uncomfortable, aged bus. The other excursions were excellent. All in all an ideal cruise with first class service from Viking staff, especially at the bars and restaurants. The Chef's Table and Manfredi's are a must to dine in. The cabins are nicely appointed, comfortable and very quiet. The Spa facilities are great and the main spa is free to enjoy, unlike with certain other cruise lines. The 2 pools are just fine, especially as Viking is adults only so no screaming kids clogging up your swimming freedom. The captain is great and makes this the cheeriest, most friendly ship we have experienced. The entertainment is good enough, though some cruise lines offer more in this department. Viking is our number one choice for cruises.

Excellent cruise and perfect ship

    A waste of time! Nothing worth seeing and we spent most of the time queueing in traffic in a rusty, aged bus driven by someone speaking on a hand held microphone whilst driving. Totally awful!
