This was our first Viking ocean cruise. Always felt welcome on board. The food and service were top flight. Passengers should tip more generously. With 900 passengers on board, we never felt crowded. There was one instance when we were unable to find 4 seats in a lounge during a pre dinner happy hour. There are a few things that Viking can improve including the restaurant reservation process and ...

6th trip with Viking as always what Viking has control over is managed in an excellent manor. Ships are spotless and I can say I have never seen a crew member with out a smile. The crew anticipates my needs and never has disappointed me . The crew is responsive to all request and I have always felt welcome. If viking had control of the weather every cruse would even better. The variety and ...

This cruise left out of Bergen Norway, to the Norwegian Fjords, Oslo, Denmark, and ending in Amsterdam. We ended up not being able to stop in Denmark because of high winds, so they headed to Amsterdam, and we got two days there instead. We chose Viking Ocean initially because we had heard such great things about them, and we prefer a smaller ship with less passengers. They are more ...

My wife and I love sailing with Viking. We always travel with friends and they love it too. Viking is a premier cruise line that provides the best customer service I have experienced. We stayed in the Penthouse Junior suite and it was awesome! Viking crew pampers you and no detail is left unattended. I would like to see a little better variety of traditional American food available from the ...

Very Disappointing - for many reasons

The Good: The ship is nice and the ports are interesting. Manfredi’s is a great place and the man who manages it is a very accommodating fellow. Our room Steward was very good. The not-so-good: The silver liquor package is not worth it anymore. When we traveled with Viking on the Budapest to Amsterdam river cruise the higher-end wine and liquor were worth the extra money – on this ...

Friends had raved about their Viking Cruise, so our expectations were high. All expectations were met. The staff was friendly and attentive. All appeared to love their job. The food choices were phenomenal and quality the same. The ship was immaculate 24/7. The spa was an incredible feature with steam, sauna and snow room. I had a great massage and should have had another. The shore excursions ...

Choose this cruise because Northern Lights viewing was on my bucket list, as was a cruise experience. Read material provided by Viking and compare to other cruise lines...picked Viking because it offered more bang for the buck. My only criticism is that two ports of call that were promoted were skipped due to weather issue. And while I understand that Viking can't control the weather, I came to ...

Do not go on this cruise until Viking Changes the Itinerary to Include Only Ports that can be Visited--Once Ports are Fixed Don't Miss this Cruise

Every ( 5 or 6 cruises) Northern Lights cruise this year missed the same two ports Stavanger and Bodo. Viking changed the Stavanger Port to Lerwick, Scotland. Not one time was Viking Venus able to dock in either Bodo or Lerwick because of weather. The result--every cruise had 5 consecutive days at sea either at the start or at the end. I contacted the highest levels (Mr Hagen) of ...

We chose this cruise because we were invited by friends to see the Northern Lights. We had never been to Norway nor on a Viking Ship and had never been on a cold winter cruise. We were ready to cruise again after 2 years of no cruising. Also, Viking made us feel safe by constant testing, masking and a small group. Also felt safer with all immunized people and no children. The ship was ...

As an amateur astronomer seeing the Aurora has always been on my bucket list. I had been on a Viking Ocean cruise before and had a great trip to Australia and New Zealand. So when I found out about this ocean cruise with Viking called “In Search of the Northern Lights “ I jumped at the chance. My husband and I and another couple went together. We used Viking Air for the flights. We started with ...
