This is our 3rd Viking Cruise. Two ocean and one river cruise. They are the best at what they do. We were cruising during COVID (I know it's still going on). I was impressed with their procedures in that we did daily spit test/PCR every morning before leaving our rooms and left the bag with the vile outside our door to be tested. Masks were not mandatory when we cruised, but the crew ...

This was our first ocean cruise. We are very satisfied with the ports that we docked in and the excursions that were offered. We enjoyed several purchased excursions also. We are dissapointed the we could not visit St Petersburg, Russia. But we understand taking St Petersburg and Helsinki off of the itinerary. We are hoping that a future will hold a time that we may all safely travel to ...

They found my hearing aid

Chose this several years ago because I had never been to any of the UK countries. While on the cruise I lost one of my hearing aids and despaired of finding it as I had been on excursions and all over the ship. But, I called guest services, gave them my coach number and within two hours they had found my hearing aid and returned it to the ship. They called for me to come pick it up. I was ...

My husband and I chose the Viking Venus cruise itinerary because we wanted to go to the Orkney Islands. The trip did not disappoint! We loved the excursions, locations, ship, staff, and food. FABULOUS! Having an outside veranda in the stateroom is worth the additional cost. Although we were sailing on the North Sea, the temperature was warm enough to allow a cup of coffee outside on the ...

We chose the Great Britain cruise because there were so many ports-of-call that were of interest. It was a great way to get a good taste or Great Britain, Ireland, Shetland Islands (part of Scotland) and Norway. The weather cooperated with us for the most part and did not put much of a damper on our visits. If one is reading this and you are sailing Viking for the first time, Viking is an ...

This story is not life or death…just interesting. My wife and I recently returned from the British Isles Explorer. It was great and I'd give the cruise itself 5 stars, but there were 2 issues with billing. On the night before disembarkation, we got our final invoice which clearly stated we had a net credit of $209 due to the cancellation of a tour. None of the 4 Viking Customer Service ...

We chose this trip as we wanted to visit the UK. We initially booked this trip in late 2019 for an April 2020 departure. This, of course, got cancelled due to COVID. We were offered our money back or a 25% upgrade if we let it ride. This allowed us to upgrade our cabin and our airfare. Viking took care of us every step of the way. They ushered us and our luggage to and from each airport and ...

Pre-Covid we traveled with Viking River to Russia & China. Very satisfied with both ships, itinerary, food, excursions, shopping etc. When Viking Ocean brochure arrived, we were mesmerized with the different trips & chose The British Isles with an extension to Oslo. It was a fabulous trip. Food was excellent in the main dining room & specialty restaurants. Staff extremely attentive. Great ...

Worth the Two-year Delay Due to Covid-19 Concerns

This cruise had been on our list for about five years before we finally got around to scheduling it, and then it was delayed for two more years due to the Covid pandemic. When we finally got to make the cruise it met all our expectations. Service was excellent in all respects - stateroom care; dining; and on-board and off-board activities. Viking's on-board health protocols were handled well ...

It's been a lifelong dream to visit the British Isles. Viking did not disappoint in any way. The ship was spotless. The food was terrific. There was a wide variety of food choices. This was good for my husband as he is a picky eater. We particularly loved the ice cream. Always 6 choices. The crew was helpful and friendly. The two who cared for our room called us by name every time they ...
