We picked this cruise because it started and ended in San Juan PR where we wanted to have a pre and post cruise beach front resort vacation with this cruise in between. The price on this cruise was a very good value and it offered five ports over the seven night cruise. We wanted to be sure we would have our best chance for good weather getting away from the snow at home and with San Juan ...

I always wanted to take a Viking cruise and did so. Traveled with my husband and my two adult children to Key West and the Yucatan Peninsula. We departed from Miami and returned after a week to the same port. The weather was beautiful. The dining was excellent wherever we ate. The excursions were also excellent. We went to Key West (my favorite), Cozumel, Merida and Belize. The ...

Wanted t try an ocean cruise and like the fact that Viking had smaller ships. Did not want days at sea and liked that we would be in port every day. The crew were very friendly and respectful. Liked the variety of dining areas and the variety of food. The meals were excellent and liked that extras could be ordered with no problem. Good variety of entertainment and very well presented. Really ...

Viking ocean had been recommended by relatives and friends. And their rave reviews were not even strong enough! The ship decor was so subtle and beautiful. There was no over the top gold, no loud music, food was beautiful but not overdone. Shore excursions were fun and interesting especially the tram through the rainforest, the tie dye demonstration,and our catamaran sail and lunch. Our ...

We have only had one other experience with a cruise, a Viking River Cruise in 2014. We enjoyed the experience very much but the long flight to Europe was a little hard for us as we are in our 70's. When the opportunity to sail with Viking without the long flight came, we took it. The trip went very smoothly with no problems getting to the ship. The ship is really great with a wonderful staff. ...

We had not traveled to the Caribbean and wanted to sail on the Viking ocean ship. We have traveled with Viking River Cruises for 10 river cruises, we wanted to check out the ship for future trips. The Islands are beautiful and the side trips educational, our fall in love moment was spent on the ship. Lovely experience dining, choices of several restaurants, in addition to the main dining room, ...

We've been on 100 + - cruises over the past 22 plus years, but this was our first cruise on a Viking Ocean ship, although we have travelled on Viking River cruises. Our ocean cruises have been mainly on high-end cruise lines, and we were curious as to how Viking did things. We found the ship to be very spacious and comfortable, even though running at/near capacity. The food was very good as ...

After hearing such great things about Viking cruises (having been on Holland America, Carnival, Royal Caribbean), my mom and I splurged on a Viking Ocean Cruise. It seemed great: trips included and nice ship. However, I would not recommend this cruise. My mom and I will be sticking with Holland America. I'll do Royal Caribbean with friends. Entertainment: The 6 singers and 2 dancers were good, ...

We chose this cruise line to compare with our experiences on Seabourn and Silverseas. We're trying to find our sweet spot of luxury and excellence balanced with a certain casualness. Viking Ocean did very well. There were a couple of weak spots (for example, embarkation was not as user-friendly as either Seabourn or Silverseas; cigar/cigarette smoking area was extremely sub-par; ) and several high ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 70s

I had never been on any kind of a cruise previously. I had a friend that had done a Viking River Cruise. We decided to try the Viking Ocean cruise. My friend had been on other cruise lines but like the Viking ships the best. We like the fact that the ship was smaller (less than 1,000 passengers). We didn't want to feel like cattle being herded from one place to another. The Viking personnel ...
