Great crew, ship and very respectable food

The crew at all levels where charming and professional and made us feel genuinely valued. Cabin, ship layout and facilities were, for us, an ideal balance as were the passenger numbers. Food, although not of ...

Other reviews have quite adequately covered the cruise portion of South America & the Chilean Fjords on Viking Jupiter. My only comment would be to support the exceptional ratings given and echo the compliments ...

I have cruised with Carnival, Royal Carribean, Princess, and Holland. This was my first Viking cruise. Yes, it costs a bit more, but for 60-year old me, this is the way to cruise! Here are some differences I ...

Great Cruise

We chose this cruise because first it is an area of the world we wanted to see and second because we have cruised with Viking before and really enjoyed the experience. We started with a pre-extension to ...

What’s not to like?

This cruise took us from Buenos Aires around Cape Horn to Valaparaíso, leaving the better scenery in Chile to the second week. Unfortunately, we couldn’t get ashore in the Falklands due to poor sea conditions ...

Discovering Viking Was An A+ Discovery!

This cruise was chosen by friends and they asked us to go along. They had cruised Viking before; we hadn't. From the minute I boarded the ship I knew I was "home". It was beautifully appointed and had so many small ...

A Good Cruise - Glad We Took It

Visiting South America had been on our to-do list for quite a long time. We took the pretour to Patagonia and this was really one of the highlights. We ended up as part of a group of 23 and it led to bonding for ...

Viking at its best!

We will only sail with Viking. The longer the cruise the more opportunities for things to happen beyond anyone's control. We had a couple of those happen (missed port to due weather) but Viking is well prepared to ...

On the positive side, the Viking Ocean ship was great and a nice size, only about 800 passengers. But it had high quality entertainment, great enrichment lectures, a great fitness area, and super public spaces. The ...
