Might try Viking again in another 30 years when we fit their target audience

Very disappointing

We wanted to see the Northern Lights and rather than take the Hurtegruten route which is heavily promoted in the UK, thought we would take a more luxurious option with Viking. We are both season travellers with ...

Will never do another Viking Ocean cruise

We wanted to see the Northern Lights. We knew that there were no guarantees, but thought that Viking would at least provide as much support as possible to view them. Perhaps the problem is that we were on the ...

Elegant, but too Expensive

The Viking Sky was impeccably clean and was kept that way throughout the cruise. The arrival process at the Rome airport was efficient and fairly rapid. We did not stay at the airport more than about 30 minutes ...

Too many Sea Days, too few activities.

We like Viking. It was going to the Azores which we had wanted to see and had never been to during any of our travels. We have sailed on Viking Ocean 4 times now. This was a cruise that did not live up to our ...

Most people love the Viking Ocean ships - I am in the minority. We have been on 5 Viking river boat cruises so obviously we really like Viking river. I brought the hype for the Viking Ocean and booked the Italian ...
