Review Profile

February 2019
Annual/regular holiday

Cruise Elements:

Quality of Food:
We ate most of the time in the Buffet
Was good for the shows they gave . The house band are very good
Shore Excursions:
We took a included tour each day and also booked a whale watching tour. This was changed without any notification which meant we were clashing with another trip we had booked. So the tour planning and service was poor.
Onboard Activities:
No the first state room was very noisy we reported after the first poor nights sleep. We were told they will fix it they never did so after a second nights poor sleep we escalated the problem and we were moved approx 4 state rooms along which was fine. But it was just a very weak apology for the inconvenience nothing else.
We Joined this ship in Puerto Rico. The flights organised by Viking were shocking in timings it took 30hrs from leaving home in the UK to get to Purto Rico. We had 5 different flights from the time we booked Viking air who book your flight are not very good. I would not recommend this cruise if you are flying from airport's outside London even some clients flyng from London were not happy with the scheduling booked by Viking Sky. So be aware if you book this cruise. Once on board the ship was good the food was excellent , we used the specialty restaurant the Italian resteurant was excellent but could only get one seating on the whole trip.. We used the set menu resteurant which is just like a pairing restaurant as the wine is also selected for each course. It was ok and different. We used the buffet most days and the selection was very good with plenty of room every day. We had a state room on deck 4 midships we stayed in one stateroom for two nights but there was a very noisy fan so we were moved after two nights. Bearing in mind we did not arrive on board ship until after midnight and our luggage arrived at 0145. So you loose all that day and most of the night. Departure from the ship is just as bad our flight from Puerto Rico was 1330 but we were off the ship at 0715hrs. Its only 20 mins to the airport so a lot of wasted time at the airport. I would not recommend this cruise as you loose so much time with bad planning on flights by Viking. Hopefully it will change for the future and theywill move to a port that has direct flights from the uk.
