Viking is our cruise top pick. We loved the ship and it's crew. Included tours need some work. Stops on the buses were poor, Dominica and Tortola were excellent. I understand some of the islands were destroyed ...

Wonderful Cruise

This was our first ocean cruise, and we chose Viking because of the small ship, no photographers, no casino and no kids. We thought that we would be overwhelmed with people after our experience with the 100 ...

Always Great with Viking!

We chose this cruise as it was two weeks in duration, a good price and had four islands we hadn’t yet visited. We enjoy the fact that just about everything is paid for up front so there’s no big surprise at the ...
