AVOID THIS CRUISE UNLESS YOU WANT TO STAY ON BOARD THE ENTIRE TRIP!!!!!!!!!!!!

Great ship; good crew, with just a few exceptions. The problem is the excursions offered by Viking. Food is much better than Royal Caribbean and Carnival, but nowhere near the quality offered on Oceania.

I chose this trip based, in large part, on the Andes Mountains lake and mountain photograph on the Viking Cruise website and a desire to see penguins in the wild.

Cabin Review

We were in one of the largest cabins at the back of the boat with a deck on two sides of the ship. We were in the second-highest classification of cabins, with perhaps only one single cabin having a higher rating. About the same size as an Oceana above-average suite. The cabin and the cabin stewards were great.

Port Reviews

Punta Arenas

A bus ride along the beach we have already seen from the ship.

Stanley

Bad weather is constant in the region. We could not leave the ship.
