Not quite Viking's standard

Having sailed with Viking before on rivers and the ocean, we were interested in the destinations for this cruise. We were very disappointed to learn we would not visit Kotor as scheduled and our tours in Venice ...

An unexpected maiden voyage of this beautiful ship. While many joked that it had a new car smell, we would have appreciated knowing in advance that we were the guinea pigs. That said, there were very few teething ...

Viking has the overall highest rating for river cruises and now that they are into Ocean Cruises, they are the best! It felt more like a family than simply paying guests and crew. The crew and officers are ...
