Average Caribbean cruise.

Jan 24th, 2020

This was our first cruise and it kind of lived up to expectations. Would not return to the Caribbean. Would consider sailing with Viking again, but maybe when I'm in my 70s.

Good but not Great

Jan 14th, 2020

Enjoyable, but not as good as we expected. We have heard so much about Viking and I guess we expected more. If you are active and want something better I would suggest a Regent Cruise. Much better selection of included and extra cost tours, and quality all the way around. The basic short bus tours Viking includes were disappointing. Limited choice and not that great add on tours were also not great. I know they cost more, but you also get a lot more on Regent. Great entertainment, great food. Even a great buffet! We will do future Viking cruises if the Itinerary is perfect, but we know to lower our expectations and plan to coordinate some independent tours like some others did on our cruise. On the good side, the service staff were in general, excellent! Very few were just OK. Best service staff we have ever experienced on a cruise!

Outstandingly organized familiarization with countries surrounding the Baltic.

Sep 17th, 2019

Great cruise with lots of extra value for the extra money above what other lines offer on essentially the same itinerary. Very hard to beat the Viking format with headsets for all for walking tours and almost perfect organization of excursion gatherings and departures, wine at lunch and dinner, and almost all services on ship included.

Wonderful trip!

Great bucket list cruise. Very port intensive so was also very tiring but we enjoyed it greatly. Gives you just a taste of each country so you can decide if you want to go back anywhere to spend more time in the future.

Great way to sample the Caribbean

Mar 15th, 2019

This cruise accomplished our goal of sampling the Caribbean islands. Most were small and there wasn't a lot to do if you weren't on an excursion. We had a nice time but not as good as Viking Homelands.

Wonderful ship

Great ship and excellent food in restaurant and world cafe. Service lacking in all dining venues. Better than expected entertainment. Never felt crowded on ship and as usual on Viking extremely nice guests.

Not Up to Standards Expected

Mar 1st, 2019

Overall, having been Holland America customers, we thought this would be a step up. In fact, it was a bit disappointing. Viking really needs to be more helpful with air arrangements and allow more flexibility. Dining room service should have been much better, and food should have been better prepared. Very nice, clean ship with friendly staff and excellent entertainment. Cabin service was superb.
