West Indies Explorer Viking Ocean Cruise

I had done many cruises but I really wanted to splurge on the Viking Cruise. I heard it was the best overall cruise line & the West Indies Explorer package really seemed to fit the bill for my husband & I. It was a special trip for many reasons but mainly to celebrate my retirement. The customer service while booking the cruise was great & even after Hurricanes Maria & Irma, we still decided to ...

--This Trip was taken as a result of a voucher issued by Viking to compensate in part for problems incurred on a River Cruise. At the suggestion of our Travel Agent and due to time constraints in using the Voucher, we chose this trip on the Viking Star. I rarely find the Embarkation and Debarkation smooth. This went fairly well. --The Ship was small next to many we have sailed but was well laid ...

We had never been to the places we visited. Viking gave us the high lights of the areas. We met knowledgeable people, saw so many wonderful places we had never experienced before. The crew and staff made traveling so easy, we got spoiled and had no worries. We celebrated my husband's birthday; They make it a super day. As they did when we had our 43 anniversary in Oct. on the same ship. They were ...

WE heard so much about Viking, that it was time to see if the ship is as good as they say. Let me tell you it was the BEST ship we have been on. We got 6 days to go everything about the ship when we were crossing the Atlantic Ocean. We booked 2 more cruises with Viking while on board the Viking Star. The food was better than we hoped. The variety was excellent. The staff was always smiling and ...

We usually take the transatlantic cruises so, when we saw that Viking was offering one, we decided to try it. From the beginning, the cruise was fantastic. Embarkation was prompt with luggage taken at the pier and waiting in our room when we entered following lunch. We had a penthouse veranda room and it was larger than rooms we have had on other ships. The bathroom had heated floors and the ...

We left from San Juan, Puerto Rico. We were among the group that flew in overnight, and Viking put us up in a hotel from about 6 AM to noon before transferring us to the ship. We really appreciated that. We did the Viking Homelands cruise on the Viking Sea with them last year, so we knew what to expect as far as the ship goes. It's just a beautiful ship, understated elegance everywhere in ...

The best cruise ever, HOWEVER

We had great expectations about this cruise from the reputation of Viking and the overall media advertising. However, there were some issues from the very start. We allowed Viking to arrange and book our flights. Major error on my part. Although the pricing was good, the itinerary was the worst. They could not have routed us in a more round about and long (time) way. I am sure it was all ...

The Viking Star was elegant and beautiful with enriching details that made the voyage a special experience. Our penthouse veranda room was very comfortable. Viking understands the modern traveller -- free wireless, lots of outlets to charge devices in the rooms and interactive TV screen to keep us up to date on our schedules, options and lots of movies. Touches of luxury added to the enjoyable ...

We never received a "no" answer from any crew member for any of our requests. Not even a "maybe". Only a "yes". We chose this cruise because the price was right and I was curious about Viking. Liked Manfredi's the best for food. Some of the dining room food was not as good. I think the chef is trying to be too creative. Cooking class was great. Yoga instructor was better than on other ...

The overall experience was really great. The crew was friendly, welcoming, and always helpful. The ship was brand new and beautiful, with large and very elegant public areas. The public spaces were bright, clean, airy and un-crowded. The rooms were roomy and comfortable, and all were unobstructed balcony rooms with twice a day service. Wine (or beer) was included with lunch and dinner. The ...
