First time with Viking: it will not be the last

This was our first booking with Viking Ocean Cruises, and really this was due to the fact that they were the only cruise company in Norway during February. Having sailed with many 5/6 star operators including ...

I got to see the wonderous northern lights and go on a reindeer sleigh ride.

Viking Star sailed to Norway above the Arctic Circle and gave us the opportunity to realize a dream and experience the northern lights. And we did see them--TWICE! We most enjoyed the optional excursion to visit ...

Proof again that Viking is Superior in Cruising the Oceans

The Northern Lights were on our bucket list so we were excited to do this cruise. The winds were too strong to make it into Bodo so we cruised onward. Viking was unaware of the Sami Festival culminating the weekend ...

Wonderful Northern Lights and Norway Trip

We picked this trip to see the Northern Lights and Norway in winter, to remind me of growing up in the snow! The crew - ALL OF THEM - are amazing, unfailing nice, and make this cruise a really wonderful time. They ...

Missed two ports, but still a great cruise

We chose this cruise for our anniversary (and to get away from the cold weather) and also because this cruise would take us to countries we'd never been to before, Unfortunately, the cruise began just a couple of ...

True 5 star luxury cruise line checks off all the boxes!

This was our 1st cruise on Silversea and they nailed it! Top to bottom, the experience exceeded all of our expectations, and was superior to our recent Seabourn Encore cruise in NZ/Australia. The ship was stretched ...

London to London via Norway and not a parrot in sight

We disembarked the Silver Wind in early June and generally had a very good cruise. The main attraction, certainly so far as my OH was concerned, was the sail in and out under Tower Bridge (note to destination ...

Relaxing is the Key

The itinerary was the key. Start in London, finish in New York: Perfect! I will say however, the North Atlantic is not for everyone. Cool temperatures and a sea that has a mind of it's own. But, knowing that in ...
