Sail Date: Nov 2021

My husband and I chose this Viking cruise for our first visit to the Caribbean because it offered multiple islands to explore (and none of the artificial resort cruise cay variety), we could drive to the Port (and avoid airplane covid nonsense), and we knew from a prior cruise to see the Northern Lights that Viking offered a first-rate experience. The excursions we chose gave us chances to enjoy beautiful beaches, sail on catamarans, learn a bit of history and botany, and chat with welcoming locals. The sunsets were spectacular. We loved having our meals outside on back deck near the infinity pool. The entire cruise was amazingly wonderful, even the hiking excursion on Dominica (and hiking uphill is not my favorite activity). My husband and I often enjoyed pre-dinner drinks in the Explorers Lounge, which offers a sophisticated, low-key, and comfortable environment, coupled with glorious views of amazing vistas and towns and natural wonders.

Cabin Review

Comfortable, and well-maintained by the staff. Love the Viking veranda furniture.
