We had done three river cruises with Viking and throughly enjoyed them. This was our first ocean cruise with Viking and the experience was excellent (food, cultural enrichment, customer service, excursions). They always treat you special. They know you name and your likes and dislikes. Our Veranda Suite was great. It was spacious and very modern. The rooms were well appointed and having the mini bar included was great. The restaurants were excellent and had a good variety of food. The shore excursions were excellent, especially the whale watching in Dominica. We also had an included tour each day that gave us a good overview of each island. We feel that Viking provides the best cruises both ocean and river. They focus on cruises for adults and have appropriate activities. We highly recommend Viking cruises due to the overall experience. We will be planning more cruises with Viking in the future.

Nine islands in 11 days from San Juan, with a “small” ship and wonderful staff. It helped us complete our Caribbean “bucket list.” And made it all easy-from the airport to our return. Viking does a great job on getting you from one place to another. And the embarkation/disembarkation processes were exceptional! Specialty dining was great, and formal/informal dining shared menus, unlike many other lines-so you could stay informal and still enjoy top quality food all day. Could use a late night option. On board entertainment was not geared for younger passengers, but the shoes and the strings/guitarists/singers in the lounges were very talented. The daily included tours gave us good representations of the islands, and options for other experiences were easy to book and provided what they said. The cabin was large enough for us, and service was there at the drop of a hat. Bar staff took good care of us and were helpful, engaging and showed an interest in all of the passengers...and great memories for names and drinks! Viking cruises aren’t for all - the relative age and options on board are geared for adults and actually older adults seem to have found a place here. This is not a kids’ trip. We had a group of 30 friends traveling together and the ship was extremely accommodating - even turning one of the lounges over to us for two hours for a private party on Halloween. If you’ve taken a Viking River cruise, the seaward experience is quite comparable. Well planned, on time, and promising the opportunity for education as well as a new experience in each port. This was our first Viking sea trip, but we will have others! Read Less

We had been on a wonderful cruise on the same ship last year and LOVED it. The room was a nice size...all rooms have verandas. The fridge is stocked each day, the bathroom floor is heated, the staff is excellent, the food is exceptional! Love this cruise line because there are no theme nights, casinos, or children. Our disappointment was with a couple of excursions with terrible guides. On one, we were on the bus for 2 1/2 hours.....didn’t have a bathroom break....never got off the bus to take pics, walk in a church, or eat or get a drink. Bus got stuck on a one way street. It was awful. We saw two attractions: a lighthouse and a church. Was told there “was a beautiful beach but we’re not going there!!!” All we saw was the slums of that island. We know it’s not the cruise line’s fault....they don’t hire the guides themselves. I see that that cruise is not offered in 2019 or 2020. I would take another cruise with Viking again. Read Less
