Started off rocky, but got a LOT better by msorbello

Verified Review
Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple
All in all, it was pretty good. Like I said, the first few days were fairly rocky, albeit with some high points, but we were by no means alone in our frustration and anger at shore excursions, food quality, and staff who seemed clueless. Many people we spoke with agreed that it felt like a shakeout cruise, and we were all guinea pigs. But by the fifth or sixth day, things improved dramatically (at least for us -- we heard some people were very upset about a botched schedule with shore excursions in Bergen). I think once Viking gets a little more experience doing ocean cruises, and has done this itinerary more than a couple of times, things will go much more smoothly for future passengers. One thing for sure -- they are willing to learn from mistakes/complaints and fix things on the fly. The assistant restaurant manager even sought us out at lunch one day to thank us for our comments on the food and to assure us that they were taking all comments seriously.

Not up to par by Morall

Better options in the Caribbean. Have taken Viking Ocean before. Does not come up to their standards.

Expect hiccups along the way, especially departures earlier than advertised (with very little notice). If excursions you want are sold out prior to departure, keep checking back before departure (we got one two weeks before departure) and after embarkation (once aboard, we were able to add two tours that had been sold out prior to departure).

We have never been on a Viking River Cruise, but we heard MANY people talking and comparing. We came to the conclusion from hearing so many that there is really not a direct comparison... so our advice is don't try to compare. Look at Viking Ocean as a new adventure...!
