We had friends who went on this cruise in June 2021 and they strongly recommended it. We had never cruised on Viking before but loved that it was an all vaccinated guest and crew cruise. We were thrilled with the cruise and beauty of the ship and service. For our cruise there were only 402 guests and 454 crew. The service and friendliness of the crew was extraordinary. We loved Bermuda and ...

The safest cruise out there…Viking was amazing

Decided to go to Bermuda and take advantage of the short flight from jfk, the low level of Covid there and the Viking experience. The paperwork upfront is a bit testy, but was totally worth it and absolutely necessary for one to enjoy and relax in a safe environment. Viking has their own lab and technicians on board and tested both passengers and crew daily. The pcr saliva test was done each ...

I chose this cruise becuase of a few things. The itinerary number one and second I had never been on a Viking cruise and had heard how amazing it is. The staff was the best I ever had. They knew my husband and my name on Day 2. The safety measures(covid are as good as it gets) Ship is so clean. We cruise with only 110 passengers and holds approx 900. This was very relaxing. The food was ...

What a wonderful week that was! Our first cruise in almost eighteen months was a weeklong cruise around Bermuda on the beautiful Viking Orion. It is difficult to imagine a way the experience could be bettered. This was our first cruise with Viking. We’re approaching forty cruises total, primarily on Cunard, Princess, HAL and similar lines. We were wowed by Viking’s approach, ship and ...

We chose this cruise because after more than a year of staying at home, we were ready to go on a cruise somewhere, (anywhere really!) and this was nicely priced (for Viking). We especially appreciated the included excursions, such as snorkeling, and a tour of Crystal Caves, both of which would have been at least $100 per person with any other cruise line. We have cruised with Viking before and ...

My husband and I are avid cruisers and have been on over 45 ( we've lost count) ocean cruises since our honeymoon 40 years ago. This cruise was our first since the pandemic began and we were eager to set foot on a cruiseship deck again. The Bermuda Escape cruise on Viking Orion was our 2nd Viking ocean cruise. The crew and ship were lovely, the food exquisite, and Bermuda as charming as ever. ...

Overall i like the Viking ocean ships. Clean, crisp norweigian style. Food choices good. Room layout very good. But this review is about my view of the way Viking handled the itinerary debacle caused by the virus. We were merrily headed to Hobart Tasmania when the captain informed us early in the morning while at sea that we were headed on a beeline to the mainland of AUS to get into port ...

I want to share how pleased we are with how Viking takes care of guests. This trip was our ninth on Viking Ocean, had it not been necessary (and prudent) for Viking to Cancel we would have also enjoyed our 10th Cruise from Sydney to Bali. Because of the Coronavirus outbreak it was necessary (and again, prudent) for Viking to end our cruise early and have us disembark in Melbourne where the ...

Our first Viking Cruise was the most comfortable and relaxing cruise we have been on...probably because it is geared for people of our age group (late 60’s-70’s). We enjoyed the spa, lectures, entertainment, and all the open spaces on the ship. The staff was very good and friendly. We mostly ate at the buffet (World Cafe) and enjoyed the convenience of that (we appreciated the staff’s concern ...

Hello, we just got back from our Viking Ocean cruise from Australia and New Zealand on the Viking Orion. First let me tell you it was well worth the time Money and experience. We had a great time on the ship and the ports of call. The crew is absolutely fabulous, they were the friendliest and most helpful staff I have ever cruised with (with about 12 cruises so far that saying something). The ...
