First Viking experience, wont be the last
"I even had a hamburger (first in years) cooked to order in the Pool Bar - so good Enrichment was interesting - Sofia and Laurence the classical performers worth going down to listen too and I even watched a movie one evening with popcorn and a beer (another thing I havent done in years) so relaxing.Meals were so good, not a big foodie but I loved everything - allergies were noted and each day the menu for the Restaurant was sent to my cabin so I could select items suitable and when I checked into the Chefs Table and Manfredi's, the maitre 'd already had adjusted the menu to accommodate...."Read More

An enjoyable cruise through the Norwegian fjords on a good ship

We chose tis cruise because going to the Norwegian fjords was on my wife's bucket list. Viking did not give us good directions on how to find the exact location for check in in Greenwich, UK. After check in, Viking made us stand in the line in the sun for a long time to board a tender to the ship docked in the River Thames; that was awful. Once on board, the crew were friendly and helpful. Our ...

We selected the Viking British Isles cruise because we wanted to see Scotland, England, Ireland, Wales & Northern Ireland so this cruise checked all of those boxes. This was our fourth ocean cruise with Viking in four years so we were very familiar with the decks, restaurants, cabins & processes. This is one of our main reasons for selecting Viking. First thing to discuss is the quality of the ...

My wife and I had a beautiful cruise on the Viking Venus. Since the cruise was not at capacity, I felt like we were treated like royalty. Everything was great, no complaints. Our meals and the entertainment were excellent. Our room steward did a fantastic job and was always on time for the spit collection. There were plenty of spots on the ship for filling quiet time. The Viking provided ...

Even with itinerary changes due to the Russian invasion of Ukraine, this trip was terrific. Yes, we were disappointed at the elimination of St. Petersburg, Helsinki and Tallinn, and some of the substitutes did not hold their level of interest, but overall it was still great. This was our second Viking cruise, and everything was perfect. The food is wonderful. Even their "non-specialty" ...

This was our fourth Viking trip. All have been wonderful. This trip was postponed/canceled twice due to Covid and Viking made sure we did not lose a penny. We really enjoyed the ports and the excursions. Viking always provides one included excursion. We often sign up for additional excursions and usually find them of excellent quality. Our favorite excursion was to a fjord via a ...

Because of the world political situation the cruise itinerary had to be altered omitting St. Petersburg and Tallinn. But other delightful ports were substituted resulting in a wonderful experience. The meals were excellent in all of the venues. Cocktails in the Explorers' Lounge before dinner with entertainment by Zeus and views over the ship's bow was a pleasure. The entertainment in the ...

We chose this cruise 4 years ago in 2018. It was postponed twice due to the pandemic. We finally sailed in 2022 but due to the war, St. Petersburg Russia and Tallinn Estonia were removed from the itinerary. Viking did a spectacular job shuffling ports to make a fantastic trip. We spent 2 nights in Oslo, Norway's capital in addition to some other new ports. All were done well. Kudos to Viking ...

This was our first time cruising the Baltic Sea. The Covid precautions were excellent with daily testing which was easy to undertake and not inconvenient. Service onboard was of very high standard. Food quality very good in all areas of the ship. Lovely spa and gym. We were able to play both table tennis and mini golf on board. We went on the included excursions and paid for the one to Berlin ...

We'd been on one of you river cruises in 2019 and wanted to try a larger ship. We enjoyed this one so much we have signed on for a cruise with Viking next year. It was different with the covid requirements but that was handled very well. Our cabin was wonderful. We ate all our meals in the cafe and enjoyed the huge variety. Staff were so friendly and helpful! The fact that we could watch ...

We signed up and paid for this cruise over two years ago and then COVID interrupted life. We have always wanted to visit Scandinavia and late evening sunsets. Everything about the river and ocean cruises on Viking is without par. Service and amenities and crew are always up to the highest standards. On the other hand, we are extremely disappointed in Viking Air. They were very difficult ...
