Decided to go to Bermuda and take advantage of the short flight from jfk, the low level of Covid there and the Viking experience. The paperwork upfront is a bit testy, but was totally worth it and absolutely necessary for one to enjoy and relax in a safe environment.
Viking has their own lab and technicians on board and tested both passengers and crew daily. The pcr saliva test was done each morning and the room stewards were diligent about collecting them. They even gave us a copy of our test for entry back to the US.
The ship was immaculate and the protocol adhered to always. The entertainment and food was very good. As a result, we enjoyed a stress free week of travel on a truly beautiful ship, with dedicated and grateful passengers and crew. I do believe that Viking has set the standard for safe ship travel….and I am a healthcare professional. Thank you Viking!
