Everyone was so pleasant, always greeting us with a smile and acknowledgement. We had a lot of fun with the staff on our Baggo game. In all of our eatery places, we enjoyed and I believe the staff did as well, the camaraderie with us. Every time we went ashore, the staff had a humorous comment to say, especially with our name being 'Sweet'. We had a tour of the galley and of the bridge. This was so interesting, not having this privilege on any other ship. The staff work so hard and it seems the food establishment work such long hours to feed us, the hungry people. Thanks for all you do. We were three siblings and spouses on this cruise and we would start our day by saying, "we'll meet at the white chairs." These were in the hallway near our cabins, 3040, 3042, 3052. It was also convenient to have the launderette near our rooms. Read Less

This was our third sailing on the Viking Sea, and my wife and I have become very fond of this spectacularly beautiful, well-designed, and immaculately-maintained ship! The staterooms are setup just right to accommodate our needs, the public spaces are excellent and abundant, and the crew seem uniformly happy and eager to please. The food and entertainment are very good, and the other amenities (wifi, pool, spa, fitness center, sports deck, lounges, laudromat, and shops) are very good. We chose this particular cruise because of the itinerary (Caribbean and South America) included some ports that we hadn't visited previously (Santo Domingo, Cartagena, and Santa Marta), two ports that I hadn't visited for more than 60 years and was eager to enjoy again (Aruba and Curacao), two places that we are very familiar with (San Juan and St. Kitts), as well as opportunities to enjoy two At-Sea days. Viking Cruises handled the arrangements for our air transportation, our transfers between the airport and cruise terminal prior to our embarkation, and also after debarkation. When we arrived at the airport in San Juan, it took a while for all of the expected passengers to obtain their baggage and to check-in with the Viking representatives.. The bus that was brought us to the ship had a door malfunction, and it took a long time for us to get through the San Juan rush hour traffic.. But everything fell into place as soon as we arrived at the cruise terminal -- welcome, check-in, champagne, dinner, meeting our stateroom attendant, and having our baggage delivered to our cabin. This was our 23rd ocean cruise, and we have observed the cruise industry's trend toward increasing large cruiseships, and increasingly large numbers of passengers onboard those ships. On the mega-ships, it seems that one must spend a large amount of time waiting for elevators,.and searching for a quiet place in public areas to read or talk. But this is NOT the way things are on Viking Oceans cruises! We are impressed at the variety, beauty, and comfort of public spaces on Viking Oceans ships! The Atrium, Wintergarden, Explorer Lounge, Pool Area, and decks are superb! Viking Oceans ships offer several dining alternatives, including The Restaurant (the ship's elegant main dining room), the World Cafe (buffet), Manfredi's (Italian food), The Chef's Table (gourmet food & drink), Mamsen;s (Scandinavian deli), and the Pool Grill (hamburgers, etc.). My wife has certain food sensitivities, and the ship's wait staff were quite knowledgeable about those issues, and very accommodating to her needs. The food was sometimes excellent, and always at least very good. My wife and I enjoyed walking the outside decks every day, and I also worked-out in the ship's excellent Fitness Center every day! We enjoyed the musicians and singers that entertained us onboard the ship. As musicians ourselves, we appreciated the variety of musical styles that were presented, as well as the musicianship of the performers. Read Less

I choose this cruise for two reasons, first because of Viking and secondly because of the trip itself. Th Viking sea is a five star ship with outstanding service. It is a beautiful ship. The cabins are comfortable and each room has a balcony. Each room has a small refrigerator that is restocked daily at no charge. It has candy, snacks and juices. There is coffee machine in your room as well. There is a small Laudermat on each floor for the guests to use. The furnishings are lovely Scandinavian pieces. Even the furniture in the grand hall are very nice. The grand hall is three levels where entertainment is provided each evening. There is also a bar for after dinner cocktails while you listen to the piano player, guitarist or string trio. There are also nightly talks given by the tour director. The restaurants are many and varied according to your taste whether it be Italian,a steak house and several others to try. The buffet is outstanding serving everything you could possibly want from a variety of soups, breads, fish, meats,vegetables, and desserts. They even have sushi available. And of course wine and beer are available at lunch and dinner. There's plenty to do on board from the exercise room, the spa, the snow grotto or go for a swim The staff are efficient and will see to your every need. And they do it with a smile. The only thing I wasn't thrilled about was some of the tours that were included. Maybe some of the tours you pay for were better.The best tour guides were in Berlin, Norway and Poland. But here again it all depends on the tour guide not Viking. Maybe they could do better to include museums. Read Less
