First but not last Viking Ocean Cruise!
"Our flight was not until around 3 PM and instead of dropping us off at the airport to sit for the day, Viking had us and our luggage transported to a nice hotel where we were provided with a large reception room equipped with snacks and various beverages.We also loved the size of the ship, large enough to have many activities and venues to enjoy, but small enough to get around easily...."Read More

Review for a Canada & New England Cruise on Viking Star

2-5 Cruises • Age 60s

We had taken the Grand European Viking River cruise in 2022 and were so impressed with the experience that we thought we would try the ocean cruise. This cruise had all the great things we experienced on the river but included things like the infinity pool, (so cool) and inside pool and hot tubs. A variety of dining experiences. Shows & entertainment. We missed the intimacy of the river ...

Outstanding Service

Review for a Canada & New England Cruise on Viking Star

First Time Cruiser • Age 50s

We wanted to see the Eastern shoreline and hoped to see Fall leaves, we were a bit early it seems. Everyone at Viking went out of their way to make us comfortable and happy. Viking has an excellent crew from the crew director, the bar staff and the cleaning service. We met new friends and so enjoyed the enrichment lectures. The food was delicious and the spirit package made it more special. ...

Great Cruise, but Poor Pre-Cruise Experience at Reykjavik

Review for a Arctic Cruise on Viking Star

6-10 Cruises • Age 70s

Having cruised with several cruise lines and Viking river cruises, we were attracted to the Viking Ocean Cruise offering. We chose Iceland and Greenland as exotic destinations which we would otherwise never visit. The cruise itself was excellent, as one would expect from Viking, but it would be fair to say that the Viking river cruises are probable a little ahead in many respects. The ship is ...

Iconic Iceland and Greenland

Review for a Arctic Cruise on Viking Star

10+ Cruises • Age 80s

I have long wanted to visit Iceland. The itinerary was outstanding. Captain Olav was very accessible and friendly. Having sailed with Viking, I had very high expectations and encouraged another couple to cruise with me. Having high expectations, Viking did not exceed my expectations. The dining offerings were not as superior as my last Viking cruise. Some of the meat was tough and difficult ...

Be prepared for excellence

Review for a Arctic Cruise on Viking Star

2-5 Cruises • Age 50s

We chose this cruise for the itinerary, always dreamed of visiting Iceland. This was our second Viking trip, first ocean cruise. We knew the level of excellence to expect from our experience on a Viking river cruise, but were pleasantly surprised at how Viking even surpassed that expectation. The ship was emaculate, the food delicious and very accommodating for my vegetarian diet, the crew ...

Epic travel experience

My husband has never been a cruising enthusiast, but this itinerary was appealing. This was our first Viking cruise, and we had such a marvelous time. The staff was top notch, the food superb, the ship lovely and quiet. Everything was to our liking, and we have now booked another Viking cruise! My husband said the experience was like being in a 5 star hotel that sailed you to your various ...

Wonderful, as usual!

Review for a Arctic Cruise on Viking Star

6-10 Cruises • Age 50s

We absolutely love Viking Ocean cruises! We have cruised on other lines before and feel we get more from the Viking experience. People truly do enjoy learning here! It was nice to hear one of our guides in Iceland who stated how respectful Viking guests are in comparison to other cruise lines. Despite the somewhat stressful excursion and specialty restaurant booking process, we feel like we got ...

Review for a Arctic Cruise on Viking Star

2-5 Cruises • Age 60s

We chose Viking because of their reputation. We were not disappointed. We chose the Iceland cruise to experience whale watching; seeing the puffins; and hopefully to see the Northern lights. From the moment we stepped on board, we felt we were being greeted by friends who wanted to ensure our comfort and happiness. We lo ed the whale watching excursion and can't say enough about how wonderful ...

Iceland cruise in August

Review for a Arctic Cruise on Viking Star

10+ Cruises • Age 70s

We had been on many Viking River cruises but never on a Viking ocean cruise. We were excited to see Iceland while experiencing a Viking ocean cruise for the first time. We found that the included excursions were very basic (e.g., walk around a small Iceland town of 700 people). The excursions that were not complimentary were very pricy, far exceeding what we experienced on Viking river cruises. ...

Among the best cruises we have taken

Review for a Arctic Cruise on Viking Star

10+ Cruises • Age 60s

We took a 7 day cruise around Iceland in August, 2023. It was our first time on Viking, although we have been on many cruises, including Crystal, Regent, Paul Gaugin as well as Princess, Celebrity and Carnival. I would say that this was among the best, if not THE best, ship we have encountered. It was FAR better than our more recent trip on Regent which was a huge disappointment. We booked 2 ...
