We wanted to see the Panama Canal and the other ports of call were also compelling. It was our first time as ocean cruisers on Viking with limited experience on one other cruise ship to Alaska, which BTW we did not enjoy. So going for 14 days on a cruise ship was a bit of a leap of faith on our part. Our experience could not have been better. The staff and the facilities were excellent. ...

We chose this cruise because we wanted a warm climate to escape from the winter, because we had never seen this part of the world, and because we love Viking cruises. We thoroughly enjoyed Key West, especially Truman’s Little White House. Our guide was excellent and made the rich history come alive. In Colon, Panama, we visited the Embera Native Village and were enthralled with the people and ...

We choose this cruise because of the itinerary. It was a partial crossing of the Panama Canal and then back to the Caribbean. Which we preferrred rather than cruising over to the West Coast and long flight home. Also, preferred Caribbean ports. The Good - Viking Sky is a very nice ship. It is new so everything is fresh and clean. The design of the ship maximizes public areas. Plenty of ...

Wanted to go through the Panama Canal locks without spending too many days at sea. Perfect for experiencing the operation of the locks. Our prior Viking experiences are with the river cruises. This was even better. The rooms were exceptional, especially the layout of the bathrooms. Food is exceptional, especially Manfredi's, the Italian food and wine, the service could not be better. We ...

Recommended by a friend. No idea what to expect. Our first cruise. We were looked after right from the airport. Lovely welcoming with champagne. Had a quick tour of the ship and then to our cabin. Food the first night opened our eyes. This was going to be great. First stop Key West and then onto Belize and further. Shore excursions were well organized with lots of info and lectures about ...

We were interested in sightseeing and learning more about the countries we visited. A variety of lectures and included familiarization tours in each port were great! The Panama canal was spectacular and it was great to have two educational lecturers help narrate the passage. The accommodations were superb, including a heated floor in the bathroom. Our room was serviced several times a day ...

We chose this cruise because of the Panama Canal transit and the port stop of Cartagena. Also quite interested in sampling Viking Ocean cruises having been on Holland America a few times and on Celebrity once. The ship is beautiful -- spare and clean Scandavian design. The food was very good. We thought the two meals we had at the Chef's Table were as good as any fine restaurant in a big city. ...

This was our first Viking ocean cruise and it was wonderful! The boat was great and so was the crew! The cabin was very nice. The bed was comfortable and it was great to have a balcony. The only cabin complaint I have, was that the steward and snack bar people didn't give you a chance to answer the door when they knocked and would come right in. We never experienced that on the river ...

Ship was kept in spotless condition at all times. 2. Excellent Service. Loved the staff to guests ratio. 3. Fantastic for the delicious food and the additional restaurants at no add'l cost. 4. Loved hearing ...

This was my second Viking cruise and I was not disappointed. I traveled with a couple. The embarkation process was flawless. Disembarkation was delayed about 35 minutes from the scheduled time. When we arrived at the airport there were other buses from other cruises at the curbside area so there was a wait to check in and in the beginning there were only two agents checking people in. When ...
