Viking Sea Cruise Review by mikeom

  • Sail Date: Jan 2020
  • Destination: the Caribbean

We thought all parts of the cruise were excellent. Even with the rough Caribbean waters, earthquake in San Juan and missing two ports because of the rough seas and wind it was a terrific trip! We have two additional scheduled with Viking and this being our test cruise with them convinced us we made a good decision to book more.

We were on the Viking Sea with an Explorer Suite. The staff was very attentive, professional and provided great service to all. The dining was great but my only complaint would be that we missed the 90 day window to reserve one of the two specialty restaurants. We wanted to go to Manfredis three times but could not get in. The Chefs Table was good but you had a limited choice of food options. Although the food was very good i wish they would put a steakhouse or similar to provide more specialty options. The main restaurant was terrific and provided some of the other options for beef but again it was limited.

The excursions Viking provided were walking tours but were very good and the guides were all very professional. The chosen ports were well thought out and gave us a good look at the southern Caribbean islands.

We will not hesitate to recommend and use Viking well into the future. There is really a benefit only having 950 people with over 500 staff compared to 4000-6000 with 1500 staff!

Catamaran Day Sail

Catamaran to different parts of the island. Had a great lunch/tour of the island and then a short swim on our way back. Crew was great and really made everyone feel comfortable.
