Beautiful ship, spacious cabin

|

Viking ocean’s great reviews were not overstated. The ship is beautiful with lots of lovely, quiet spaces. Our cabin (penthouse veranda) was spacious and had more storage space than we needed - a first for us. ...

Gotta Love Viking Ocean Cruise Ships

This was a Trans Atlantic Cruise, the first for The Viking Sun, but not the first for my spouse and I. The ship is lovely in every way. It's comfortable, uncrowded, quiet, and supremely well appointed. If it were ...

Awesome Ship, crew, suite

We wanted to see Cuba. And, we were able to get a good view of the city, the countryside, and some of the people. The highlights were primarily three: One, the vintage cars, and our riding to dinner and the ...

Excellent first Viking cruise

We were interested in a cruise to Cuba at a time we could go at a reasonable price. It was our first Viking cruise and we booked it over a year ahead, paying the entire cost at booking. The docking at Havana was ...

Best cruise out of 25 cruises we've taken

We chose this cruise because of the itinerary, the newness of the ship, the fact that it would not have young children aboard and there was no casino. We had taken a Viking river cruise and wanted to see the layout ...

Superb lectures & superb food = superb mid-Atlantic crossing

We've heard so much about Viking Ocean that we wanted to give it a try. The price was right as was the itinerary: Lisbon to Miami. The pre-cruise stay was at a hotel in the heart of the downtown area, thus, far ...

We chose this cruise because my sister in-law thought it would be fun to see Cuba. We made our reservation in September 2016, over a year before the cruise. In August of 2017 Viking informed all the passengers ...

Cuba Nightmare

Cuba. If you decide to travel to Cuba, do not take Viking cruise. I am a big fan of Viking but they did their passengers a disservice by landing at Cienfuegos. To get to Havana, we were onboard a bus on uneven, ...
