My spouse and I chose the Viking Cruises “Pacific Coast Explorer” itinerary as our first sailing after the pandemic eased. Our last cruise in 2019 had been a Viking cruise to Norway, and we had been more than impressed with the ship (the Star), and the staff, food, ports, and onboard entertainment, and amenities. So we did not hesitate to book another Viking vacation, and having Viking handle ...

We have taken several Viking Cruises, both river and ocean. For this trip we booked one of the explorer suites, quite pricey and our best friends booked another of the explorer suites. Check in was awful as the staff could not make the card processor work despite several managers trying to help. No one to explain COVID instructions prior to boarding. We were told the explorer suites were available ...

While we're pleased to hear your stateroom suite was an enjoyable aspect of your trip, Guildmoney, it's regrettable to hear aspects of your dining experience and shore excursions fell below...

I went on a Viking Rhine River cruise in 2018 and wanted to try a Viking Ocean cruise. I've been on 45+ cruises over the years and I really enjoyed cruising on the Viking Orion. I especially love that many items are included, such as 1 tour in each port and sodas at lunch and dinner. I don't enjoy the taste of alcohol so I don't want to pay for something I won't use. I'm used to more room in ...

Great Ship, not so great food.

First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

Overall it was a good time, but I have to tell you, the food was a major disappointment. The food was presented very well, and looked good to the eye, but did not taste that great. Pancakes and waffles were cold and stale, and the other food was not seasoned very well. I am not sure they used butter in anything. The best food we had on the journey was on the shore excursions. The Ship was ...

This was our 15th cruise, on 6th different brand. The last 4 on Viking, including a Viking River cruise. We love the personal touch that Viking gives their guest, we are not just another customer attitude. Ships are a little smaller which allows them to get into a 'working port'. They don't require a large cruise port terminal, so sometimes they will dock at a more private port where there are ...

This excellent educational trip was all that we expected from Viking and Then some.There were informational lectures not only on port excursions, but all about the panama canal politics and back room wheeling and dealing to allow the USA to build this engineering marvel. There were also pirates. The Viking cruise line took all the worry out of traveling during a pandemic by requiring daily ...

We had never seen a cruise to French Polynesia from the US back to the same location offered before from Viking. We thought that it might be our only opportunity for this cruise. Vikings COVID protocols at the time made us feel safer on one of their oceans ships than we felt at home. The cruise was even better than we had expected. As always the staff took wonderful care of us. Of course ...

My wife and I both love the South Pacific. When we saw this cruise on Viking's website we cancelled a cruise we had booked on another cruise line and immediately called Viking. At the time we booked, this cruise was supposed to go to Hawaii as well as the South Pacific. However the Hawaii portion ended up being cancelled due to Covid restrictions in the Hawaiian Islands. Viking notified us and ...

Polynesia was a bucket list destination for me and my wife and we love Viking. This cruise was wonderful. We especially enjoyed the extra time we were able to spend on Tahiti and Bora Bora. The excursions were all very good and informative. The speakers that Viking had onboard for us kept us well informed and entertained on this longer cruise. In fact there were so many choices we were busy ...
