A new Caribbean port of call each day!

We chose this cruise to celebrate our 45th wedding anniversary. Previously have had three cruises with Cunard. This fared better for us as there were no formal nights. Had two nights at the Chefs table and two at ...

Stunning ship but not much else to recommend it

We chose to travel on the Viking Sea (10 day cruise) from San Juan, Puerto Rico to San Juan, Puerto Rico, because we liked the look of the itinerary, and the fact that it has been voted the top cruise line for the ...

West Indies Fall Break

The Viking West Indies Cruise was a great break from the cold of fall. The weather was super with some rain, mostly during the night. This cruise was similar to the last two we took due to Viking's ability to make ...

This West Indies Explorer cruise had weather issues.

We chose this cruise explicitly because there were no “at sea days”. We chose Viking because of stellar reviews with no casinos nor children. Being a very new boat, just 4 or 5 years old added to the allure. ...

One hotel, nine islands

Viking's West Indies Explorer was just the kind of cruise we were looking for. We like to spend more than one day in a particular area, which is hard to do on many cruises. The Lower Antilles brings a series of ...

More rewarding than I even imagined

I chose this cruise for several reasons: I wanted a transatlantic cruise, as I love the ocean and my father had been in the Navy in WWII; because of the reputation of Viking as geared toward thinking and reflective ...

The itinerary was what we were looking for -- all destinations, no days at sea. We had been very satisfied with our previous Viking Ocean cruise (on the Sky, an identical ship). But Viking has definitely upped ...
