Because the cruise went to Cuba a place that neither my wife or I have been to before. The trip was very enjoyable. The overnight stay in Havana was a real pleasure. The hotel was great and the show at the Tropicana was really good. They took us from the hotel to the Tropicana in a older convertible which was nice. The food that was supplied was good also. They claimed that the hotel was a five star hotel and it probably was. The rest of the sight seeing was food also. The guide was well informed. He didn't leave much out if anything. This was my first sailing with Viking Ocean Cruises and very satisfied with the whole experience. Looking forward to booking another cruise with them. Everything was first class and the way we were treated on board the ship was great. Food was great and the buffet and the dining room was terrific. Read Less

We decided on the last minute to join this cruise and explore Cuba. The deciding factor was that we would spend an overnight in Havana. This provided an opportunity to spend more time in the culture. The hotel was beautiful. The experience was fantastic. Viking provided us a drive in vintage American cars through Havana. The driver was personable and friendly. After dinner we were then taken to the Tropicana nightclub for a colorful, entertaining musical dancing show. It was also a time to interact with your fellow shipmates over the bottle of rum provided the 4 of you at the table. The Cuban bus tour guide had perfect English and was well educated and provided wonderful information about Cuba and the people in a delightful manner. It was exactly what we were looking for in a trip. The ship is fantastic. The staff is attentive and professional. We absolutely loved the Chef's Table dinner. We loved how you could grab a cup of coffee or drink, and go find a place to just sit and enjoy it with a book. Very relaxing experience. Read Less

We chose to go to Cuba because it was a once in a lifetime experience. There is no telling when and if the US will cut off relations with Cuba. It was quite a memorable experience to say the least. However, it wasn't the trip that we initially signed up for. On several occasions we were scheduled for dinner reservations, however when we arrived at the dining room, we were told they did not have our reservations. The first incident, we were told that we called and cancelled our reservations, which was not true but we were able to have dinner that night. We then made a second reservation and when we went to eat, we were told they did not have a reservation for us. We were then asked to wait or come back later, we said forget it and left. Our excursions were booked before the cruise. While others received their excursion tickets, ours were missing. I had to go back later to check on them and they were ready for me the next day. We did enjoy our excursion experiences after the ticket hiccup. Overall, the trip was enjoyable except the mishaps with the restaraunt reservations and excursion tickets. We enjoyed the food and the cabin was very nice. Read Less
