Our first cruise and we were not disappointed. We booked a penthouse veranda and the room was quiet, well designed, aesthetically pleasing and importantly with a comfortable well sized bed. The food, ambience staff ...

Not worth the money

We have cruised many other cruise lines and were looking forward to this one because Viking was supposed to be a cut above, etc. It is not and we won't book another ocean cruise with them again. Food was average. ...

Viking are not listening to their customers!

We just returned from "Along Africa's Western Shore" where we found ourselves joining (unwittingly!!) the last 4 weeks of a World Cruise, with a major impact on our experience! I have looked at many negative ...

Dorothy, You’re not on Seabourn Anymore

Good cruise, but Viking Sun doesn't warrant a high rating.

Western Mediterranean Cruise, 12 nights. Traveling solo. Rome to Lisbon Shore excursions were very good. Guides knew their subject matter. Viking Sun staff needs to recognize and treat solo passengers the ...

I’ve always been interested in seeing the Baltic countries. That is why we choose this cruise. We came over a day early so we could see additional sites in Stockholm. Our plan was to leave Old Towne to do with ...

Not competitive with other luxury cruises

We have cruised previously with both Seabourn and Silversea, as well as Viking River and we chose this cruise because we had read superb reviews and we were curious about Viking Ocean. The Viking Sun is a beautiful ...

It was okay...

The nicest part of our cruise on the Viking Sun was the polite, friendly, and very clean attention of our room steward. The stateroom is a little small, but sufficient. The veranda was nice, but that squeaking ...

A highly anticipated cruise which turned out to be a mediocre experience

This cruise was in celebration of our 50 wedding anniversary. We had sailed a Viking river cruise and while the ocean cruise was considerably higher in price than other cruise lines based on our river cruise we ...

Beautiful ship with many issues

This is a brand new ship, beautifully decorated, the right size, but many design and management issues. A ship of this size, carrying over 900 guests, normally has 3 sets of elevators. Here there are 2 so that ...

This trip was truly a bucket list fulfillment. Being a 5 time Viking cruiser (2nd ocean + 3 river cruises) I could not think of a better way to see the British Isles. I will say to begin, that the issues I had along ...

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, ...
