We chose this cruise since we wanted to visit the Scandinavian countries. It was our first Viking experience and it met all of our expectations. The service was outstanding and the food was extremely good in all the restaurant facilities. Ample activities were offered on board ship. The entertainment was very enjoyable. The excursions were extremely organized. The entire trip was a very delightful ...

The Viking cruise line gives you a 10 out of 10 service I felt so special and that’s fantastic Cruise. They make you feel like you are number one. I also had special dietary needs and they went out of their way to make sure that I was satisfied above and beyond. Also the excursions were very nice and organized as well. They also picked you up from the airport and brought you to your ...

We chose this cruise in 2019 after our first experience with Viking -- a River Cruise in Provence. We thought it would be a good way to see Scandinavia, where we had never been before. It would also have probably been our only chance to see St. Petersburg. After two covid cancellations we were pleased that we finally got to go, even without St. Petersburg (cancellation of which was a ...

We had heard good reviews about Viking from our friends so we decided to give it a try - we were on two prior cruises with other lines. We picked the Viking Homelands cruise after having two prior cruises cancelled due to Covid. We added Iceland as a pre-cruise excursion and were glad we did. We enjoyed all of our port of calls but wished Finland had been included on the itinerary. The ship was ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

My husband’s grandmother was Swedish and I wanted him to see how beautiful Stockholm is. The added ports of Bornholm and Mariehamn were a nice addition as I would not have picked those as places to go. We started in Bergen and ended in Stockholm. As we hit each successive port there was more and more sunshine. We almost exclusively did the included tours and I thought they were great! The one tour ...

We chose this cruise because it had ports of call in countries we have not yet been able to visit. Unfortunately, we were not able to visit Estonia, Russia and Helsinki. This did not deter us from having a great time at the ports we did visit. We would have liked to not have the two additional nights in Oslo as we did the pre-cruise in Oslo. However it did give us the opportunity to see the ...

Having loved every Viking River Cruise we've ever been on, (and having been disappointed with other ocean cruise lines,) we decided to put Viking to the test. We could not be happier. Viking is a class act in every way! We have been on less expensive cruises, but by the time they nickel and dime you to death, it comes out about even. Viking gives you a free excursion at every ...

We had been looking forward to seeing St. Petersburg but understood why that stop had to be changed, of course, as well as Finland and Estonia. However the replacement stops were mostly unremarkable. We still enjoyed the trip due to the excellent staff who were always kind and friendly making each day a joy. The entertainment was awesome! And the food was fantastic. We also very much ...

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 ...

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 ...
