Disappointing

Nice but nothing special. Food was OK. The “special” menus were no better than the regular ones. No enrichment activities. The fitness room was small and poorly equipped. We had better previous ...

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 ...

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 ...

As great as a cruise can get, plus a major bucket list item checked off

We had sailed on Viking Ocean on earlier occasions (Baltic and Caribbean) and knew that Viking had created a great cruise product with these ocean-going ships. So we chose the Northern Lights cruise so we could ...

Great Cruise, Magnificent Scenery, Outstanding Pre- and Post- experiences.

Viking Rep met us at the plane and helped us navigate Heathrow. Because we had a pre-cruise package, we were handed off to a limo driver, who was excellent. We thoroughly enjoyed the stay in London at the Conrad ...
