Viking Sea Cruise Review by 1toein

  • Destination: the Caribbean

We were thinking of cruising for a while and very hesitant about small spaces and too many people, etc. Good friends highly recommended Viking Cruises, so we researched the line and liked what we found.

We wanted warm breezes in February, and chose the West Indies Explorer cruise beginning in Puerto Rico. We were greeted with sunshine and smiles. All the Viking staff were so happy and upbeat, we were made to feel at home immediately.

The Viking Sea was spectacular, so well appointed with many areas to relax and enjoy the views. We loved the piano in the Atrium, the lectures, the onboard shops and the specialtyrestaurants, to name a few.

We were invited to a mix and mingle event where we were greeted by officers of the ship and other cruise critic members with cocktails and appetizers. It was great to meet other cruisers as well as the officers. We had a lovely evening.

Every day the cruise director presented an overview about the next port which was so informative and got you excited to see the next stop.

The Food and the service was exceptional. We enjoyed fine dining in the Speciality restaurants and the main dining room,. If we felt like a more casual evening, the buffet was fabulous. The food was delicious and abundant.

We are already planning our next adventure, perhaps we will sail on a river cruise.

Thanks to all for making our first cruise so wonderful.

Cabin Review

Our cabin was spacious with plenty of storage. We had lots of drawer space along with a huge closet, which had 2 fluffy robes and slippers. The beds were very comfortable and the bathrooms beyond expectations. The shower was very spacious, with a shelf for shampoo and such.There were drawers, along with shelves and a supply of shampoo, conditioner and body wash in the bathroom.

I was impressed with the cosmetic area built into the desk and the fridge with all the goodies.

Our steward was wonderful. Anything we needed all we had to do was ask.

We also enjoyed the balcony and the ever changing view, while sipping drinks as we left port.
