First of all, let me start by saying that my sister and I have been cruising for 20+ years and in all those years this is the worst cruise we have ever been on. We booked this a month before sailing with vouchers from a cancelled cruise leaving Oct 13 requiring us to fly back from hurricane devastated Puerto Rico which we felt was not safe for 2 senior ladies so we re-booked on the Oct 29 cruise ...

The ship was beautiful and the service was wonderful. There was enough to do on the ship. The entertainment was fine, we enjoyed the lectures. The cabin could use some additional storage for folded clothes. The excursions we selected were O.K. but the panorama tour of St. Lucia and the Grand Cayman were really boring. We have been on your river cruises and the food was outstanding, the food was ...

First time on Viking. We wanted to experience a brand new, fresh ship. Embarkation went smoothly- loved the hand held check in devices the check in agents were using and it was extremely nice to see the Viking personal to assist the agents with the use of these devices. The ship was clean, well designed and beautiful. We had an Explorer suite below the bridge and it was well designed and extremely ...

I first chose the cruise since it left from N.Y. It also went to Bermuda (due to weather we didn't make it in) The size of the ship was perfect....I don't like mega ships. Anything less than 1,000 is great. We were not full so we only had 600 passengers. The food was terrific and the service was outstanding. The ship was beautifully decorated and I liked the fact that the minimum age was 18, ...

This was the best cruse we have ever been on. Beginning at the time we boarded until we very reluctantly disembarked we could not have been more pleased. The service was impeccable. The food unbelievable. The overall experience was most satisfying and rewarding. Someone asked us about the food on board. Our answer is imagine the best place you have ever eaten - well, we ate there 3 meals a ...

We chose Viking for 2 reasons.. First to try the Viking experience and second its itinerary allow us to see Bermuda .. The cruise started with us sailing into a serious tropical depression. Most passenger were sick and confined to their state rooms for 2 days Later the question on passenger's minds was:.Why would the captain take this ship into a SERIOUS storm jeopardizing all the ...

My husband and I were disgruntled Royal Caribbean customers: the service got worse as the ships got bigger. Our last RCI ship had 6,000 passengers (Viking carries 980 max) and 17 decks. Since positive reviews and chat rooms pointed to Viking, we booked the 14 night "Around the Caribbean" which covered Bermuda, St. Kitts, St. Lucia, Curacao, Jamaica, Aruba, and Grand Cayman. We did an excursion at ...

I have been on many cruises over the last 30 years and this was by far the best. The food was amazing. Interestingly, the main dining room was better than the specialty restaurants. The service from the crew was attentive without being obstrusive. The ship is gorgeous with a number of innovative features like the snow grotto and the tropical bird sounds in the public restrooms. The "included" ...

We picked this cruise because of the ports of call. We left NY Harbor on a Sunday during a Northeaster. .Many people were seasick but the crew did a great job helping everyone. We missed one port of call due to the storm. However, before we ended the trip we were informed by email that Viking have us a credit to use on another trip. I have been on other ships (not Viking) and had problems that ...

This was our first Viking Cruise. We were continually impressed by the care and concern of all the staff. Meals had great variety and the varying ice cream treats were always tempting. Evening entertainment was top notch and if it was scheduled to start at 9:15....it started at 9:15! The shore ports were fun and interesting and gave us a great opportunity to visit islands that we had not ...
