The crew provided an umbrella promenade when the shore excursion guests were rained on.

Visiting the Panama Canal was on my bucket list. Everything about the 11 days was an experience. The food at all of the venues I visited was superb. The chefs always presented such delicious fare; everything from shrimp, lamb, crab, burgers, The entertainment was varied and delightful. I attended all 3 different performances of the singers, who were excellent. The Viking band was talented, as ...

Great ship, great service, great rooms, great ports of call! This cruise had it all. First the ship is a perfect size, not too big not to small. Had all the facilities we needed (pool space, walking track, great spa, great entertainment, EXCELLENT rooms... Every room had a balcony! Had none of the things we didn't want (casinos, children, smoking, art sales), and the best thing is Viking does ...

We chose Viking based on ship size and destination. The Viking Star was beautifully appointed and the cruise staff extremely helpful and professional. We enjoyed every moment on board - every communal deck offered wonderful views, which we took full advantage of. It was nice to have the ability to go to a quiet place and read a book or enjoy coffee and pastries or be amongst a group of people to ...

We wanted to go to the panama canal and we chose Viking because of the size of the ship (930 passengers) and no children. After a rocky start with a name screwup we were able to correct the problem on board the ship. i had a heel problem and every day 2x a day our room stewards brought ice paks for me. The food onboard was magnificent with everything labeled what it was and if it had meat ...

We chose this cruise because we didn't have to travel far, and we had a voucher from Viking due to a cancelled river cruise. This was our first Viking Ocean cruise , and we were pleasantly surprised. The ship was sleek, modern and spotless, the service second to none, the food was outstanding, and the entertainment top notch. With around 900 people, we never had to wait for an elevator, there ...

It should be mentioned right away that Viking clearly caters to a very small demographic of elderly clientele. My wife and I and the other couple that we travel with are healthy, active 60 year-olds and we felt that at least 90 percent of the other passengers were much older than us. We've taken previous Viking River cruises and, overall, really enjoyed them. Unfortunately, the things that we did ...

We booked this cruise for several reasons, but we did have a large credit from a covid canceled cruise and needed to use it soon. The itinerary was interesting and our daughter and grandkids live in Connecticut. We had sailed Viking once before and this cruise was great like the first one. Staff was friendly and hardworking. Ports were fun! Captain and crew had to work around our big ...

Viking Overpriced and Not Premium

10+ Cruises • Age 70s

My wife and I chose Viking because it runs smaller ships and after three years without cruising believed this to be a safer option following COVID. This was our first time on Viking after 30+ cruises with other cruise companies. It was probably the worst. We made the decision to sail from Bergen to Montreal and then a second cruise from Montreal to New York 26 days in all. We saw the best and ...

Interested in the destinations and historical background of the region. The ports were interesting, and the guides were knowledgeable and fun. Our guides in the Shetland Islands and Quebec City were outstanding. Wished we could have spent some more time in Iceland, as a one-day stay was less than optimal. Because of weather (Farrow Islands) and a problem with distilling fresh water due to low ...
