If I could rate Viking with a 10 star review, I would. We were on the 30 day Australia, Indonesia, Asia leg of the Ultimate World Cruise. When we signed up for the cruise we were worried about wildfires, volcanoes, and possible riots in Hong Kong. Who would have thought we would be faced with the Coronavirus outbreak? The itinerary we signed up for was definitely not the one we took. The ports ...

We are experienced cruisers, having done a Viking Ocean in 2018 (Rome to Lisbon on the Viking Sun), a Viking river cruise in 2015 (Budapest to Amsterdam) and since 1990,, 5 other cruises on Carnival, Princess and Holland America. Each of those ships were 1500 to 2000 passengers. On this cruise we arrived in LA a day early and met with several others who had set up the meeting through Cruise ...

Why did we choose this cruise? Honestly, it was a last minute decision based on a really good price offered by Viking. We have been on two River Cruises with Viking, and knew that Viking was 5 star all the way. We were not disappointed. The ship was lovely, our room was perfect, and the amenities on the ship were stellar. Particularly, we enjoyed dining at the Chef’s Table. The ...

Review of the Viking Sun cruise from Santiago to Los Angeles.

The itinerary is what first attracted us to this cruise and decided last April to book it through 6 Star Cruises. We have previously done many cruises with Regent, Azamara, Oceania and Seabourn, all of which we have enjoyed. This is the first with Viking but were very impressed indeed - the itinerary, ship, food, staff and value for money were all excellent and we'll be looking to sail with them ...

As expected from our experiences with Viking River Cruises, this was five stars all the way, from transfers to and from the airport, to luggage handling, to greeting on the ship. We stayed in a deluxe veranda, which is one of the smaller suites, but still had plenty of room and a fabulously comfortable king size bed. Besides, who wants to stay in the room? LOVED that there were only 900 ...

We chose this cruise for several reasons: the Viking reputation, the cruise itinerary and the mixture of excursions and sea days. We were not disappointed. We had a penthouse veranda cabin, which was roomy with plenty of drawers and storage space. This was important for a 27 day cruise. The ship is lovely - at no time did we ever feel crowded. There was plenty to do on sea days - I found a ...

The staff was excellent - from the captain to the housekeeping gals & guys. Each and every one was willing to do whatever was needed for the guests. Our cruise director (Vicki Van Tassel) was the best! She made every event memorable. The Viking Sun is elegant - lots of beautiful wood & leather furniture plus floor-ceiling windows in most common areas. The Sun never felt crowded. You could ...

10+ Cruises • Age 60s

We chose this cruise to be away over Christmas and New Year and because we wanted to explore more of South America. It was nice to have four full weeks rather than rushing through two weeks. We arrived early in Valparaiso and enjoyed spending some time in this colourful town. The Viking Sun, which is identical to its sister ships, was once again a haven of understated comfort and elegance. ...

The Viking Sun is a beautiful ship with luxury amenities. Staff is very friendly and will strive to meet any requests. The food is very good (we did have some bad experiences at Chef’s Table) and menus are varied with top quality ingredients. The spa and fitness center were far above our expectations. The size was impressive and robes, sandals, extras provided. The spa hot tub was massive and ...
