Stunning ship but not much else to recommend it

We chose to travel on the Viking Sea (10 day cruise) from San Juan, Puerto Rico to San Juan, Puerto Rico, because we liked the look of the itinerary, and the fact that it has been voted the top cruise line for the ...

One hotel, nine islands

Viking's West Indies Explorer was just the kind of cruise we were looking for. We like to spend more than one day in a particular area, which is hard to do on many cruises. The Lower Antilles brings a series of ...

Too Much of Something Is Not a Great Thing

We have previously taken two Viking river cruises in Europe and chose this cruise because it would not involve a long round-trip flight to Europe before beginning our cruise. Also, we wanted to try one of Viking's ...

We loved living "the life of Riley" aboard the Viking Sea

We love the cuisine offered in terms of variety and quality. We love being cared for as if we were part of the family. Because the ships are so new, everything about our cabin was first class, new and ...

Just good, not great

Unfortunately, Viking changed our paid excursion to a time that conflicted with our included excursion and didn't notify us. We found out on our own and needed to visit guest services to correct Vikings error ...

We truly enjoyed all the included excursions.

Our pastor and his wife recommended Viking as they did a re-positioning cruise. They told us all about the different foods to try and to make sure we went on both sides of the buffet lines. I loved to order ...
