We had been looking at Viking Cruises for some time. When we saw this cruise with reduced cabin costs and free air we looked more into it. This particular cruise was occurring during my wife's birthday, so we decided to celebrate with this cruise. In addition, we had not been to the Caribbean before. So we decided to go ahead and take the cruise to see if we liked cruising with Viking. It was fantastic. We particularly liked that the cruise was originating in Puerto Rico, saving time sailing from Florida. We were meet at the airport and ushered to the ship. Embarkation was easy with no long lines. We liked that we were visiting a different island each day, allowing us to appreciate the diversity of the islands. The shore excursions were excellent. The included excursions gave an overview of the port area or the island. Optional exclusions added additional experiences. On board, the food was outstanding. We had two nights where we ate in the special restaurants but food in all of the venues was fantastic. We also enjoyed the nightly entertainment and the historical talks we were able to attend. The staff were outstanding. You felt they were their to insure that they took care of your every need. Really an outstanding cruise that we would highly recommend.

Cabin Review

Cabin
Cabins were well appointed. We particularly liked the bathrooms. Lots of room. Every cabin had a veranda.
