Excellent ship and cruise to Antarctica

Review for a Antarctica Cruise on Viking Polaris

wave time
First Time Cruiser • Age 70s

Outstanding ship and crew with exceptional service and food quality. Safety was a top concern for the crew assisting on Zodiac landings with plenty of crew members ready to guide and assist each participant in getting on and off the Zodiacs safely. The staterooms were large and comfortable with large showers and floor to ceiling windows that opened by pressing a button to lower the top half of the ...

The cruise that everyone wants to take, but few do.

10+ Cruises • Age 70s

My wife and I have taken 59 cruises. This exploration has completed our trip around the world. We have been to all seven continents. The staff and crew on the ship were excellent. The food was excellent. Our cabin was a good size with plenty of space. The window allowed us to see what was going on outside all of the time. The trips on the Zodiac and the Special Operation Boat provided us ...

I had high expectations and they were exceeded. The scenery was stunning. The outings were well executed. The staterooms and public spaces were beautiful and comfortable. And the food was outstanding. I was especially delighted with the number and quality of vegetable choices. Many meat choices as well. I was able to eat healthy delicious food, as good as I cook at home. We had one or ...

Exceptional Service, ship and itinerary

Review for a Antarctica Cruise on Viking Polaris

scruiser53
10+ Cruises • Age 50s

We researched the best ship and itinerary for our trip to Antartica and went with Viking. It could not have been a better choice for us. First, the fact that their Antartica ships are expedition with the most knowledgeable and capable guides made it stand out above other cruise lines. We did not want a large, commercial-ish ship with thousands of people. It would have taken away from the peaceful ...

What a simply AMAZING adventure aboard a simply AMAZING ship with a simply AMAZING staff. From start to finish, our expectations were exceeded through the efforts of the staff, the amenities onboard and from the incredible landscape of Antartica.

Awesome, Amazing, Adventure to Antarctica!

Review for a Antarctica Cruise on Viking Polaris

8Falafels
First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

Cruising along the Antarctic Peninsula was amazing! The ever-changing scenery was the constant throughout the entire cruise. Every day we saw icebergs of every shape and size imaginable. Snow covered mountains and glaciers were everywhere. We saw countless humpback whales – whales that were logging, diving, feeding alongside their young, and even breaching! The water is so clear that as ...

6-10 Cruises • Age 60s

Everything about this cruise was better than anticipated (except for one thing). SHIP The ship was beautiful. It was simultaneously elegant and comfortable.

This was a smooth sailing ship Even through the large swells of the Drake Passage, the ship gave a smooth quiet ride. We felt the ...

Wonderful Antarctic adventure

Review for a Antarctica Cruise on Viking Octantis

LP111
6-10 Cruises • Age 60s

We selected Viking based on early reviews, reputation, excursions that were offered and size of the ship (not too large or small). All the staff were great, very friendly, helpful and with a true desire to make the cruise an exceptional one. The food was excellent, whether one of the 2 restaurants or the buffet. On multiple days, there was lobster tail, varied steaks, and numerous specialties. ...

Trip of a Lifetime (that I already want to do again)

Review for a Antarctica Cruise on Viking Polaris

AEG-CBG
6-10 Cruises • Age 40s

We compared several cruise / expedition companies that offered trips to Antarctica. We eliminated those that were too big and just drove by the continent because we wanted to step foot on the land. We looked at price, amenities, excursion types (zodiacs, boats, kayaks, subs, etc), timing with our schedules, international flight cost/inclusion and landed on Viking. We spent 2 year watching the ...
