Docked in Isafjordur in a fjord, with high cliffs out the window. Water was like glass. Said "WOW!" when I pulled the drapes and looked out (starboard side).

Great first Mediterranean Cruise on Viking Jupiter

Review for Viking Jupiter to Mediterranean

2-5 Cruises • Age 50s

My wife and I recently completed our first Viking Ocean cruise onboard Jupiter for the Mediterranean Odyssey Itinerary. This was my first ocean cruise after having previously completed (and loving) 2 Viking River cruises. We choose Viking primarily for the destination-focused experience and this cruise did not disappoint. We had no significant pre-cruise issues. We navigated the COVID-related ...

Even with the covid restrictions and protocols this was a great cruise. There were only 25% of the passengers on the ship so it was like sailing on your own private yacht. Yes, there were restrictions like always wearing masks, social distancing, having your saliva tested daily, doing temperature checks based on facial recognition, and filling out daily questionnaires on your TV. Once we got ...

Too Much COVID Concerns to Enjoy the Cruise

Chose this cruise because it had an inviting itinerary, with enough new ports to allow for self touring. Started in Reykjavik Iceland. The moment we checked in there was an intensity about COVID. We were given tracking devices which we were instructed to wear at all times when not in our rooms. They went out of their way to avoid calling them tracking devices. Once on board we were informed that ...

We had to jump through lots of hoops (apps, covid tests, proof of vaccination, etc) to get on this cruise, but it was worth it! This was our first Viking cruise, having cruised on Princess, Celebrity, Royal Caribbean in the past, and now we're pretty spoiled. The Jupiter was beautiful and spotlessly clean. The crew were so friendly and helpful (of course, it did help that there were only 640+ ...

Gorgeous small ship, average food, odd and inconvenient management and vendors

The Jupiter is absolutely beautiful. We took the Iceland cruise, one of the first post-COVID announced (75% capacity, just after the first 50% capacity shakedown cruise) and the scenery was just as you've read about. Technically the Jupiter was three years old but because it had been mothballed during COVID, it was essentially a brand-new ship. Perhaps due to that, or perhaps it is simply a vessel ...

Fabulous Cruise - Cities Visited, Excursions, Ship, Safety during Covid

Because of Covid and resulting cancelation of most cruises during the summer of 2021, we were not able to take a planned cruise on another line in August. However, we found an 8 day cruise on Viking which circumnavigated Iceland. We had been to Reykjavik before, but nowhere else in Iceland, so decided to take the cruise. Viking has an awesome Covid protocol so we felt we could do it safely. We ...

We have traveled with Viking on 10 cruises and were looking forward to a fun voyage around Iceland. We had the required COVID vaccinations and the COVID nasal swab (within 72 hours of flying). Upon boarding the Jupiter, all passengers are given a COVID tracking button and one is required to carry this tracker at all times outside the stateroom. The button allows Viking personnel to monitor your ...

Viking Good but South America not so much

Review for Viking Jupiter to South America

6-10 Cruises • Age 70s

Having been to Europe on Viking River & Ocean we thought we would try South America this time. Disappointing as Argentina and Chile not very open to tourists. Getting off in Buenos Aires was a disaster-3 hours through customs and 6 hours to get luggage delivered to room. The ship and crew as always were up to Viking standards! The excursions tried hard to show us items of interest but some ...

Hadn’t been to this part of South America as there are many sea days and unpredictable weather. The weather was amazingly calm and we were able to stop at all ports. Seeing penguins in the Falklands was the highlight as was the Falklands Museum. The drivers, the museum volunteers, the clerks at the information store were so friendly and welcoming. Also enjoyed Ushuaia and the catamaran ...

The crew at all levels where charming and professional and made us feel genuinely valued. Cabin, ship layout and facilities were, for us, an ideal balance as were the passenger numbers. Food, although not of Michelin standards was in our view, more enjoyable and the options satisfactory. The negatives are minor in the context of the cruise but could easily be corrected:- Guests repeatedly felt ...
