Positives:

We are experienced sea and river cruisers. With viking ocean, we have cruised on the viking star, viking sky and viking sea. Our recent cruise on the viking sea was the best of the three ships. The best feature of viking cruises is viking's overall logistical excellence. When they provide the air, you can count on viking to manage all connections or travel disruptions. the viking west indies itinerary is hard to beat. The food that we had on the sea was mostly excellent. The restaurant and manfredies italian were excellent. The world cafe (buffet) was the best of the three ships. Service and table clearing were noticeably better, which i attribute to the head waiter who was on top of everything.

Negatives:

Cabin Review

Deluxe Veranda Stateroom

Nice size but limited storage.

Port Reviews

Antigua

Our favorite island surprise of the cruise. Antigua was the only island outside of the Virgins that we we would consider visiting for an extended vacation.

Philipsburg

Very disappointing. Since we vacationed there many years ago, the tourist trade has grown exponentially with the casinos etc. However the infrastructure hasn't changed. Obviously countless hordes of people come to Saint Martin, as they do to Atlantic City, just not our style.

Barbados

Very pleasant surprise. This British Island attracts celebrities for a reason.

Dominica

A very lush island, like you find in the South Pacific with the same positives and limitations.

St. Kitts (Port Zante)

We docked in Basseterre. Very disappointing island with impoverished natives.
