Viking cares more about profit than passengers.

When we arrived at the ship, you could not miss the large dent in the starboard bow of the boat. We were given multiple variations of what went wrong and was assured by Viking that the ship was safe and that we ...

I have to say, this trip was special. When we arrived in Paris, Delta had lost our luggage. Viking had someone stay at the airport near us while we did a claim. When we were done, they were ready to take us to the ...
