Sail Date: Jun 2021

We chose this cruise because after more than a year of staying at home, we were ready to go on a cruise somewhere, (anywhere really!) and this was nicely priced (for Viking). We especially appreciated the included excursions, such as snorkeling, and a tour of Crystal Caves, both of which would have been at least $100 per person with any other cruise line. We have cruised with Viking before and love everything about these cruises.

The ship was spotlessly clean, and the crew were meticulous about reminding people to wear their mask, wash their hands, etc. Everyone was fully vaccinated, AND we had to do a saliva test daily.

One thing to note: before the cruise, we had to get tested for Covid, and submit that to the Bermuda Government (online) and the whole process was really quite stressful. We weren't the only guests to say this. In fact, had I known how stressful it was going to be, I might have thought twice about the cruise!

Cabin Review

The bed is very comfortable, with huge pillows, and they change the linens very frequently. Our stewards, Sandy and Tio, were wonderful. As others have noted about this ship, the closet doors can be hard to open, and the window to the balcony is also hard to open. Shower door seemed to leak water out on to the floor no matter how careful we were!
