We have used Silversea in the past but were not happy with them on our last Cruise so we decided to try something different. We did a lot of research and the reviews for Viking were very good so we decided to give it a try. We were not ... Read more

This was our second cruise on this ship. As with their River Cruises, Viking excels in attentive service on board and they did not disappoint. The staff, from the cabin attendants to the servers and entertainers make every passenger feel ... Read more

Ship is GORGEOUS! We were in Explorer Suite 5000 at the very bow of the ship and it was perfect. A small bit of trouble with the AC in the living room, but that is the only complaint. The gentlemen taking care of us were great. Free ... Read more

We left from San Juan, Puerto Rico. We were among the group that flew in overnight, and Viking put us up in a hotel from about 6 AM to noon before transferring us to the ship. We really appreciated that. We did the Viking Homelands cruise ... Read more

It came along at a time we could go for a very good discount. My husband and I loved the smallness of the ship and the amount of people. The entertainment and cabin service were the best we have encountered. The food was very, very good ... Read more

We had never crossed the ocean by sea, so we were anxious to see if we liked several days at sea in a row. Verdict: The time flew by! The activities (not to mention the wonderful meals) made us forget about time and just enjoy ... Read more

Loved the fact that we were at sea for 8 days! Viking kept us busy. Weather was great so we sat out by the pool a lot. Guest lecturers were wonderful. My husband and I read three books and spent a lot of time meeting new friends. ... Read more

Have had great experiences with Viking River Cruises, and wanted to see the Caribbean in a smaller vessel than the horrific 5 - 6,000 person mega liners. Viking seemed to fit the bill, we were not disappointed. Particularly liked the ... Read more

I had never visited the West Indies and wanted to get a feeling for the Islands in the area. The Viking Star is a beautiful ship if you like a calm Nordic vibe, which I do. This ship is spotlessly clean. Also the food is absolutely ... Read more

We booked because Viking was offering free RT air. We were torn between Viking's Mediterranean and West Indies options. We decided upon the West Indies due to increasing Islamic extremist massacres in Europe. We liked that the cruise began ... Read more

We had little time in the past to visit the West Indies Islands. This cruise was the perfect opportunity, since we love the Viking Star. The cruise began and ended in San Juan. Very easy for us to travel to and from there. We visited 8 ... Read more
