Cruising on the Amazon at Christmas

My husband and I wanted to see the Amazon and believed that this Viking cruise would provide us with that opportunity. We booked late last fall and as we only had a choice of four cabins, we ended up selecting a DV5 category cabin on Deck 4. Upon embarkation, we would quickly discovered that this was the smallest balcony cabin we’ve ever been assigned, not only in terms of square footage, but ...

When we saw the ad on PBS touting the elegant experience we should expect aboard a Viking cruise, we believed the hype and signed up for their cruise to the Caribbean and Amazon. The itinerary certainly sounded interesting and we were excited. Having now had it, I can say that this Viking experience was barely average, especially when compared with other cruise lines in the same price point. ...

We've sailed on two other Viking ocean ships, so we expected to enjoy ourselves. We did. The route through Caribbean islands and up the Amazon was new territory for us. Because of air schedule we didn't have time to see San Juan, but had a good excursion into El Junque rain forest. Viking Sea is a splendid ship. All public areas are beautiful, open and light, comfortable to hang out ...

We arrived a day early to San Juan and stayed at the Sheraton Old San Juan. Nice hotel...great location. Unfortunately for our departure the Sea was not docked in town but at the less convenient pier. Embarkation was EASY...but remember to keep your Brazil Visa with you, they want to see it when you board. We were onboard within minutes of leaving the cab ( $25 USD from the hotel). We arrived ...

A Bit Disappointing!

The Viking Sea is a lovely looking ship: nice décor, super clean and very friendly staff but the ship itself doesn't sail very smoothly and our cabin in the very aft vibrated & shock night after night. We chose the Amazon as we have never been there and wanted to see the nature and wildlife that live there and experience the might of the river. Sadly no included tours showed us any wildlife and ...

We choose this cruise because we loved our Viking river cruise on the Danube the previous year and also because I've always wanted to explore the Amazon river and rain forest since I was young. We have sailed on RCL 4 time and Princess once. This was our fist Viking ocean cruise and more than likely our last. The staff on board was excellent. Every single member of the crew was friendly and ...

We wanted to try Viking Ocean Cruise since we've done two Viking river cruises. When we checked itineraries, our first choice was the Panama Canal but it wasn't available when we were looking. So we decided on Caribbean to the Amazon. We loved the ship, the number of sea days and most of the ports. We weren't as thrilled with the Amazon as we'd hoped but really enjoyed the Caribbean ports. ...

So, we love to snorkel and we wanted to see the Amazon and we like to do this in the company of friends from Australia, so we chose Viking, because we knew we would be well looked after and have a memorable experience. And this is what we had! Our cabin was comfortable and beautifully maintained by our steward. Our first day aboard, I requested more hangers and a teapot, as we are not coffee ...

We will definitely choose Viking again BUT if you are choosing this itinerary to really experience the Amazon's wild life and rainforests explore your options ....any cruise may not be the best choice. If you want to appreciate the grandeur and magnitude of the Amazon, enjoy sunshine, some Caribbean islands and escape early winter doldrums at home this is the perfect itinerary and SHIP! We ...

Seeing the Amazon River and particularly the Opera House in Manaus has been on our bucket list for some time. Being able to do it on a Viking Ocean Cruise made it the perfect fit. We have cruised more than 50 times and the Viking cruises have the best of them all. The ocean cruises are better than any we have done. The smaller passenger size, the ambiance, the service, the itinerary, the ...
