Review for Viking Octantis to Canada & New England

Viking Octanis was a fantastic cruise on a beautiful ship. The Viking team was among the best crew in over 50 cruises. The Submarine voyage lived up to my wildest expectations. We stayed in the Explorer suite, which was very spacious. The food and beverage manager took personal care of us in more ways than expected. On the final night, we threw a party, and he arranged for a unique dessert that ...

We waited over a year and a half for this cruise. And our first Viking cruise lived up to all our expectations. Octantis is a wonderful cruise ship and a scientific research ship very comfortably rolled into one small vessel. The ship is decorated in human-scale items. Not lots of glitz, just solid, comfortable furniture arranged in ways to encourage interaction among the guests. Public spaces ...

Great cruise in the Great Lakes

After two river trips in Europe and their very hot weather, I wanted a trip with cooler temperatures and staying in North America. The trip was absolutely great with outstanding staff at all levels and great food! I especially liked all the science that the ship was doing and sharing the information with passengers and with NOAA and Canada! The food was outstanding with lots of really good ...

This was my fiftieth cruise (my husband’s 48th), in about 25 years. A good friend found the Viking Great Lakes expedition cruises advertised and the four of us decided we were ready for something unique. I’ve been on 13 different cruise lines. Celebrity was our favorite until 2015 when we tried Crystal. When we planned a European river cruise, after quite a bit of research, I chose to go on ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 70s

We chose this cruise because we did not want to leave the US. We boarded the ship on Saturday and by Tuesday we knew we would take another Viking cruise. The food was amazing, and the attention from the crew was more then we could have imagined. The food was amazing, and we met some very nice people on board the ...

Fantastic ship with a few shakedown logistics issues

2-5 Cruises • Age 70s

We've enjoyed three Viking European river cruises, so when we heard the line was launching expedition boats in the Great Lakes, we decided it was time for an adventure afloat in our own country. We had to overcome a few hurdles: the ArriveCAN vaccination requirements, the VeriFly "ready to travel" standards for the airline and the 72-hour COVID-19 testing window to get on board (which applied only ...

Deliberately Unacceptable Service

10+ Cruises • Age 20s

I captioned my review in this way because management has screwed up in so many different ways and has proven so unresponsible that it has to be deliberate. The Cunard website is hard to navigate. Even Cunard's telephone support people tell me that. There were times when you simply could not print out required papers, including luggage tags. This seems to be such a frequent problem that the ...

We are huge QM2 fans despite having taken a 10 year hiatus from sailing with Cunard. We decided to book the two week version of the July 1, 2022 cruise which was a week in new England and the following transatlantic crossing on July 8, 2022. We flew in early and stayed out at JFK at the TWA hotel for the night - it was great fun! The Cunard arranged transfer picked us up from Terminal 5 at the ...

We just completed the June 18th Great Lakes Explorer cruise, starting in Milwaukee and ending in Thunder Bay, Ontario.  It was our first Viking cruise.  Pros: 1. We thought the ship was beautiful, and enjoyed the many "nooks and crannies" to sit and relax. 2. The crew was absolutely wonderful.  They worked hard, remembered names, and were gracious and friendly. 3.  Food ran the ...
