Disappointing

We have done several Viking cruIses before so we were expecting more, The shore excursions were less than expected - even the extra cost ones were less than expected. The buses were full and uncomfortable. One couldn't even make it up the hill out of town and all the guide was worried about was if she was going to be back in time. The walk to the buses was long and over wet and slippery ...

We chose this cruise because it has always been a dream to see the Northern Lights and have also wanted to try out Viking Ocean cruises. (Got a good deal from travel agent) From start to finish the whole experience was lovely and we really didn’t want to come home. The Star has a lovely relaxed atmosphere and is beautifully designed in a scandi style. The Staff were very friendly and the ...

We had done a Viking River Cruise and wanted to try the ocean cruise and see the Northern Lights. The ship was outstanding; the decor was very nice and not overdone. There were plenty of activities for all. The ports in Norway were all very interesting especially Tromso, Alta, and Stavanger. In Tromso, the visit to the Planetarium was exceptional; the movies of teh Northern Lights and the ...

This was our first ocean cruise with Viking (we'd done a river cruise previously) and were very impressed with just about all aspects of the trip. Viking's air routing was a little strange, however - we went from Baltimore to Detroit to Amsterdam to Bergen, which is not a very logical route, but I suspect was less expensive for Viking than other choices. Embarkation went very smoothly and ...

A friend had the Northern Lights on her Bucket List and I gladly accepted the offer to join her on this cruise. It all started out great until our first night at sea. The ocean wasn’t that rough, but the ship was rolling and rocking a bit. This was when we discovered our cabin, #6054 had a serious noise problem. It sounded like Thor was banging his hammer on a huge metal pipe under our cabin’s ...

Seeing the Northern Lights has long been on our wish list for travel. After having a wonderful experience with Viking on a Danube River cruise a couple of years ago, we started looking at this cruise up the coast of Norway t see the Aurora Borealis. This was a wonderful cruise to a truly beautiful part of the world. Norway is a lovely country and Norwegians are most hospitable. Traveling ...

Our first cruise on Viking Ocean and the Viking Star did not disappoint. A beautiful ship and the staff was excellent. BRINSLEY as cruise director did a great job and was very organized. The guest lecturers were very good and We enjoyed the fact that if we missed the real time lecture, we could view it later in our room. All the public areas were beautifully decorated and cozy. Loved tea at ...

My husband & I sailed with Viking only once before, the year prior. The ship is beautiful, clean, comfortable, & the service is wonderful.The staff on both cruises were professional & so friendly. We chose this cruise because of the destinations. Instead of common places that most cruises visit, the chance to see the Shetlands, Iceland & Greenland was something we wanted to do. All went smoothly ...

Fantastic dining, fabulous musicians (Viking Trio). Outstanding excursions and itinerary. Comfortable stateroom. Viking ocean exceeded our expectations. Having been on more than a dozen cruises, we are pretty hard to impress. The Dining Room manager more than accommodated vegetarian menu requests by having a vegetarian "soup for one" prepared every night for dinner. He also worked with the ...

Past good experience with Viking so wanted to take this cruise with them. This was our 1st ocean cruise with them, previously 3 river cruises. As previously the ships are spotless, with a friendly, helpful and polite crew. Cabins were excellent and cabin boys very helpful. The food was excellent, especially the 2 "speciality" restaurants, again wait staff very friendly, helpful, and ...
