Really Disappointed

|

I've waited a few months to write this review; I didn't want to overreact, but rather give some time for reflection. We have sailed with HAL 13 times, and once each with Windstar and Paul Gauguin. We like great ...

Bangkok to Slums of Asia

This itinerary was very poorly designed. Long 2-3 hour bus rides on excursions, through Indonesia slums and hot old buses. Stayed two days in Jataka, nothing to see but cheap for Viking to dock, Singapore was ...

Our last Viking cruises

This was our second and third Viking cruise. We'd been on a previous Viking Ocean cruise and both my wife and I came down with "type a" flu. I went from the ship directly to the hospital (with pneumonia). ...

Very Disappointing

We chose the Viking Orion cruise because we have wanted to go to Australia and New Zealand for a long time and because of the excellent reputation of Viking ocean cruises. We will not take another Viking cruise. ...

Not many stars shone on the Viking Orion

What a disappointment Viking proved to be. On a cruise from Bangkok to Bali and beyond thank goodness I got off in Bali and not beyond. The plus was the food was quite good. The penthouse veranda does not live up ...

Disappointing Viking Ocean Cruise

We were looking forward to a stellar Viking experience-such as we've had previously on Viking River cruises. This Bangkok, Bali & Beyond embarking from Bangkok on November 16, 2018, was a rather dismal journey. ...

We chose this particular cruise because on my bucket list was SE Asia...Everyone spoke so highly of Viking we took a chance. This particular trip included air fare, a bonus for us. Viking made the ...

We have taken numerous Viking river and ocean trips. I never write reviews, however travelers need to know this trip is not worth the time or money. Until this trip we have had wonderful experiences with Viking. ...

Not Viking's Sparkling Moment

We choose this cruise, due to the many interesting ports, we'd not visited. Viking Oceans is trying to do, too much, too fast, and losing sight of the small details, involved in "Luxury Cruising". We'd sailed on ...

Very disappointing

We thought it would be a great trip. This was our 3rd Viking cruise. The first two were very good. This cruise was extremely disappointing. The service was very poor in dining. Sometimes there were no dishes ...
