Our expectations of Viking have gotten too high?

We have been in love with Viking since our first River Cruise! We've been on 3 Ocean Cruises since. However, our last experience aboard Orion was not up to our expectations: The accommodations at both our pre- ...

Wonderful Cruise

We choose this cruise because of the pricing and the inclusion of the flight in the price. It was a trip of lifetime made within our reach. Also, Viking is a “no” children cruise line something we prefer. ...

Bali to Sydney cruise (Many hits and a few misses)

We had been on Viking before so I am comparing this cruise to the Viking cruise we took last year - plus other cruises we have taken. Dollar for dollar you are not going to do better than booking a Viking cruise - ...

First time on Viking Ocean Cruise, surely not the last time on Viking

We have come to avoid big ships, 1400+. We abhor having to walk through casinos and don't like the idea of a floating shopping mall, so we decided after 12 cruises on Holland America to try Viking. We may never go ...

Too cold and too noisy

We loved our Viking river cruises. On this ship, the corridors were kept so cold so that, returning from outside temps of 85 to 95 degrees, we felt chilled. the food was good but people did send food back. ...

Viking Orion Bali to Sydney Worst Shore Excursions Ever

The Viking Orion is a beautiful ship with good food and stylish cabins BUT.... I would bet that none of the staff have ever been on one of their included shore excursions to test it out. If they had, none of the ...

Excellent Cruise...Except for the Included Tours

We have sailed on Viking Ocean before, and will do so again. Check-in and debarking was excellent. We had a PS3 cabin, which was worth the money. The food was quite good; although they should have more green ...

Chose this cruise because of the itinerary. Embarkation was kind of chaotic but the disembarkation was very smooth. Viking does not administratively handle single people well. I guest this is not their market. ...
