First time on Viking: Great crew but disappointing accommodations

Have sailed on most lines over the past 25 years , most recently on Regent, Seabourn, Silversea. We were impressed with the consistently excellent service throughout the ship by the delightful crew. The ship’s ambience is quite serene and decor just lovely and comfortable. Food overall is very good. We dined in all of the venues. Our least favorite was the main restaurant due to the noise, ...

Could not get the flight I wanted, even though I took Air Plus. Flight home was delayed 2 hours, so United dumped all luggage at LAX stopover and cancelled all connecting flights. We had a scheduled 3 hour layover, so there was plenty of time to catch our original flight. But, instead we had to rebook and ended up with crummy seats in the back of the plane. Many excursions were filled up before ...

Ship was very clean, food was great, staff were incredible. Entertainment and activities were superb. The choice of food for every meal was amazing, not one bad experience with dining. Dining staff were great! Romeo is an incredible employee of Viking. As a matter of fact all staff go out of their way to help and make sure your time with Viking is fantastic. Ports and Shore excursions ...

We thoroughly enjoyed a Viking river cruise of the Rhine several years ago and were looking for an opportunity to travel with Viking again. A trip to New Zealand and Australia had been on our "wish list" for quite some time; and when we discovered that Viking was introducing a cruise to these 2 countries, we decided to make our wish a reality! We arrived in Auckland a day in advance of our ...

We wanted to visit New Zealand and Australia. Tasmania was a terrific surprise. We selected a mid-size cabin due to the length of the trip and that there would be days at sea. Everything was exceptionally well done from the housekeeping staff to the entertainment staff. The food was amazing and the surprise birthday cake was a special treat. We would go on this trip again if we didn't have ...

We had been planning a trip to New Zealand and Australia for a long time. It involved a lot of research. During our land tour travels in Europe and Morocco we had met many Aussies and Kiwis and have kept in touch with many. We researched many ways of visiting both NZ and Australia. Considering the long travel time to them from the East coast, it became apparent that the easiest way was to take a ...

My wife & I have multiple cruising experiences – varying ship operator/size & world location - and believe Viking ships accommodate the perfect number of passengers - about 900 - to result in a most memorable cruise experience, not possible on mega ships. Fewer passengers greatly expedites Viking’s efficient embarkation/debarkation process so we can focus on enjoying our time. The wonderfully ...

We are previous Viking travelers. The product provided by Viking was excellent. The ship size of 950 guests provided a small ship feel with the larger ship amenities. Outstanding crew and well thought out basic and optional tours. Included trips were very good at providing an overview of site/ event. The additional trips were extremely well conducted and educational. Crew members seemed to ...
