Disappointing

Nice but nothing special. Food was OK. The “special” menus were no better than the regular ones. No enrichment activities. The fitness room was small and poorly equipped. We had better previous ...

Sub-standard service and poorly run ship

We wanted to try Viking as we like smaller ships and nice service. Sadly, Viking does not live up to a luxury or premium standard. Passenger to crew ratio is around 2 to 1. Staff in restaurants and bars are ...

Premium price for sub par experience

Prior river cruise experience with Viking was excellent. We wanted to visit the Baltic ports and expected the same level of experience on Viking's ocean cruise ships. There was almost a complete lack of on board ...

Lovely ship, shame about the food & service

We have cruised 3 times in the past 2 years with Azamara (twice) & Seabourn and have thoroughly enjoyed all the cruises. We prefer smaller ships and we decided to cruise the Baltic with Viking due to the ...

Beautiful boat, great service but far from a luxury experience.

We’ve recently returned from a trip to Scandinavia that included the 22 night Majestic Fjords and Vibrant Russia cruise. We started the trip in Finland and southern Sweden before joining the cruise in Stockholm. ...

Huge Disappointment

Chose for Northern Lights/Arctic Circle Itinerary. Ship was beautiful and was very impressed at first. We selected a Deluxe Balcony Stateroom and it was quite small. There was not enough hanging space. ...

Great concept, poor execution

We booked back to back Mediterranean cruises, Dec 30 2018, and Jan 6 2019. We were attracted by the itinerary, and the wonderful reviews of Viking. The itinerary turned out to be misleading, and Viking appeared to ...

Understaffed, and staff poorly trained.

Continuous ship computer problems. Restaurant reservations repeatedly disappeared. Long wait times for bar service. We had the wine package, and at dinner, refills were tough to get. Long lines at the buffet. Items ...

My 80+ year old mother and I always wanted to take a Viking Cruise. SO we decided the Homelands Cruise would be it. We paid 1300/ea for round trip tickets and about 750/ea for insurance to Viking along with the ...

Prepare to be bored out of your mind

It is difficult to convey how awfully tedious a cruise on the Viking Sky really is. And it is difficult to explain how cheated we feel by the whole experience. This cruise does not come cheap and, frankly, we ...

We consider ourselves experienced cruisers, having sailed with Windstar and Crystal about twenty times over the past few years. We were hoping to find a new experience, and wanted a short December cruise which we ...

Not worth the money

As a solo traveller and first time cruiser, I did a lot of research before I chose this cruise. I was impressed that Viking included so much and that it had a good reputation for its crew, destinations, and for its ...
