Best Cruise Ever!
"Viking provides an included on-shore excursion at each port included in the cruise price and those excursions do a much better job than other cruise lines of providing history, economic and political information.Also, our previous Viking Rhine River Cruise was so great, we wanted to try Viking's Ocean cruises...."Read More

Worst Cruise experience of my life

My wife and I booked an ocean cruise for our Christmas holiday and made sure it was long enough to also include New Year’s Eve, our anniversary. We were so excited! We’ll, we were excited until we started trying to book our dining and excursions. I don’t know how Viking works it, but they open the booking at 11:00 PM eastern and I started up to be able to get good reservations. Dining ...

First of all big thanks to Viking for doing a great job and delivering a perfect product under enormous pressure from all kinds of officials (CDC, local authorities etc. you name it...). We even visited Dominica which turned away Celebrity Equinox due to Covid cases. Viking arranged us perfect flights to San Juan. Embarkation was pretty fast and smooth. About the ship: it's our second time on ...

Viking's 2nd Cruise to not be in the "Viking Bubble!"

I feel compelled to write a review since nobody has reviewed since Viking changed it's policy on allowing passengers to be free in port. We found out on our 10 October departure from Athens to Venice that we were only the 2nd cruise to be allowed free reign in port. We were thrilled. Starting pre-cruise in Crete we shopped alot knowing it was possible we wouldn't be allowed off the ship. But we ...

Nice to get back on the water. Lots of paperwork to get on the cruise, some of it was never checked. PCR tested every morning, as far as I know, there were no outbreaks. The Viking only charter flight direct to/from Malta was icing on the cake. We had to skip Montenegro because of changing Covid conditions, we spent 2 days in Dubrovnik instead. Tours varied, some good, some not so good. In ...

Floating from Malta through the Adriatic in the Viking Bubble

This review includes information on our August 10, 2021, “Malta & Adriatic Jewels” cruise on the Viking Sea. Although we have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19 since February, 2021, we had not anticipated cruising safely until 2022. We especially had not considered cruising from Malta as it is so difficult to get there from our home airport, Raleigh/Durham (RDU). However, at the beginning of ...

It was so long since we had cruised. When we saw the chance to go on a fully vaccinated cruise with exceptional health protocols, we jumped at it and we made it a back-to-back, starting in Malta, cruising the Adriatic, Montenegro and Croatia, then back to Malta, the Greek Islands, and returning to Malta to fly home. On board, we were tested every day, including when we boarded. Viking has an ...

The cruise to the Amazon is an excellent cruise, although there are a lot of at sea days. So bear in mind that Viking does not have large shows, casinos, or a lot of shops. But that said, the Viking Sea is a very nice ship which is well designed and has enough open spaces so that you never really feel crowded (except during port talks where the entire ship tries to show up in the Star Theater). As ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 50s

Viking Sea staff were all friendly, welcoming and went out of their way to give us the best experience possible. We ate most meals at the World Café where the menu changed daily and always provided plenty of delicious options for a variety of tastes. TIP: Be sure to look at both sides of the café serving stations as although most food items are the same, there are a couple of differences eg; ...

Norovirus strikes again

Review for Viking Sea to Caribbean - All

10+ Cruises • Age 60s

We were on the West Indies Explorer cruise and enjoyed every port- no sea days. This was good because they closed all of the pools, hot tubs, steam room, ice grotto, sports courts, locker rooms, and self serve buffet for over one third of the cruise due to an outbreak of the norovirus. No raw sushi or smoked salmon either. This was very disappointing but understandable in order for them to try to ...

We chose the West Indies Cruise for several reasons: dates, ports, weather, and our love of Everything Viking! Our ship was a small cruising ship with 930 people and no children. Don’t get us wrong, we love children but prefer traveling without them. The Viking Sea is beautiful and we were proud to be a part of the journey. Extremely clean, well appointed, with incomparable service is the hallmark ...
