We hadn't been to those particular Caribbean islands on previous trips so wanted a brief time to explore. One day in each port gave us an idea which island(s) we might wish to return to for a longer stay. The sunny skies (most days) and warm seas made the trip extra enjoyable. The cruise staff gave excellent service. Our cabin was kept spotless. The singing entertainment group chose music ...

We had never taken a Viking Ocean or River Cruise before. We were doing a last minute search for a trip to the Eastern Caribbean when we discovered this offering. Upon contact with your representative and after a thorough discussion of the itinerary, the Viking Sea ship, the cruise amenities and the cost of the cruise, we decided to commit to our first cruise with Viking. We were extremely ...

Viking Ocean Cruise 2016 Review We have been on the Baltic Viking cruise, we were familiar with the Viking philosophy. We liked the itinerary so we decided to try it. We were not disappointed. We have booked another Ocean Cruise next year. The ship is very well laid out, we never walked into a lounge or other room and felt crowded. The included excursions were not a good as we had experience ...

We enjoyed Viking's France' Finest offering a year ago and looked forward to doing another or trying their new ocean cruise options. Soon after we returned from France we received an email promotion of The West Indies Explorer offering and determined that one of the sailings would include New Year's Eve at sea. The combination was too much to resist. As mentioned in many of the accompanying ...

This was our first ocean cruise and we are hooked! We chose this particular cruise because there were so many ports of call and we thought it would give a good sense of the Caribbean overall and perhaps clue use into an island we might want to visit for an extended stay at some future point. As it turns out we enjoyed everything about the ship so much that it was difficult some days to even go ...

We chose another Viking cruise based on excellent experience in the past. Viking is not flashy, there are no kids, no casino, etc.Only 900 passengers. It's a more sophisticated and older crowd. No one gets loud or drunk on Viking. This was the West Indies Explorer itinerary. Dining is excellent, including wine or beer or soda with lunch and dinner. Waiters seemed a little more harried than ...

Viking did an excellent job of make the ship seem more intimate than it really is. There are several smaller areas you could go to relax and seem that that this was your private cruise. Especially enjoyed the Explorer Lounge area, which was never crowded. The good was excellent--loved seeing the open kitchen in the World Buffet. Also liked that you did not have to pay additional to dine at ...

My husband and I, average age 62, took the West Indies cruise on the Star for the New Year. We are experienced cruisers with voyages on Princes, RCI, Celebrity, Azamara, Oceania, and Seabourn in Europe and the Caribbean. In general, the cruise was very enjoyable, food very good, friendly staff, and beautiful ship. Our impression is that this cruise was somewhere between a Celebrity and ...

We had been on Viking River cruises in Europe and were happy with all of them (4). Decided to try a "not large ship" for a change--usually go on cruises of over 2,000 people. This was only 930 passengers, no children. The decor was Scandanavian and relaxing--numerous public areas with comfortable, living room type furniture, book-lined walls, and peaceful live music. No one is taking your ...

We did a river cruise in 2010 and loved it. We have always planned to take another Viking cruise, however, life came in the way of children's college graduations, trips to India to visit family, and lastly a child's wedding. We love the level of service offered by Viking and its employees. Both of us are veterans of the hospitality industry, we are hotel school graduates, we have worked for ...
