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 ...

Stunning ship but not much else to recommend it

We chose to travel on the Viking Sea (10 day cruise) from San Juan, Puerto Rico to San Juan, Puerto Rico, because we liked the look of the itinerary, and the fact that it has been voted the top cruise line for the last 4 years. We were amazed by the ship on embarking. It is a stunning, beautiful ship decorated in a Scandinavian style. Our first reaction was that this was going to be a wonderful ...

My husband and I wanted to see the Amazon and believed that this Viking cruise would provide us with that opportunity. We booked late last fall and as we only had a choice of four cabins, we ended up selecting a DV5 category cabin on Deck 4. Upon embarkation, we would quickly discovered that this was the smallest balcony cabin we’ve ever been assigned, not only in terms of square footage, but ...

Not a highlight cruise

The transportation for excursions is third world level. Terrible small vans or rusty metal open air pickup trucks. Can’t believe how much is charged for these. My arm was sliced open on one of the metal gates which ruined most of my cruise. Medical center patched my arm and warned me I would end up with a bad scar. I have that scar. Could not swim in pools or Caribbean as a result of injury. ...

I chose this cruise because I wanted a smaller ship. The ship was very nice, but the main pool only had the roof partially open so there was no breeze making it unbearable hot. The entertainment in the evenings was nice but needed more variety. The same 4 singers did shows 4 nights on the cruise. Two other nights were the cruise directors singing. Two nights (first and last) didn't have a ...

Just good, not great

Unfortunately, Viking changed our paid excursion to a time that conflicted with our included excursion and didn't notify us. We found out on our own and needed to visit guest services to correct Vikings error causing us to miss the "mix and mingle". This also affected our other plans for the day. Food was not as good as we expected. Staff and crew were exceptional and remembered our names and ...

Very disappointing cruise

After many years of cruising, primarily on luxury cruise lines, we decided to try the very highly publicized Viking Ocean Cruises. We were anticipating a big anniversary, so opted for the Explorer Suite, one category below the Owner's Suite. Viking arranged our air, though we paid a supplement to choose our own travel dates and flights. No problems there. On the day of embarkment, we got to ...

2-5 Cruises • Age 70s

Viking ships were known to us. We chose the Eastern Seaboard cruise because this is an area we were not familiar with. The standard of onboard living was excellent. The cabin appeared spotlessly clean and the dining to a high standard as we had experienced on previous voyages. Embarkation and disembarkation was smooth and well organised. Viking say that they place emphasis on the ports of call but ...

Review for Viking Sea to Transatlantic

10+ Cruises • Age 70s

Viking Cruise Trans-Atlantic September 2019 Our cruises are always chosen for their itinerary, but after that, of course, the cruise line is a major consideration. We came across the “In the Wake of the Vikings” cruise with Viking Ocean Cruises, a line new to us, back in early 2018, but we were not free at the time, so we expressed an interest with Viking for the 2019 sailing, through our local ...

embarking was quick and easy. once we were on the ship at 3.30pm we were advised that the ship would be leaving that night instead of the original plan of the next evening due to weather which meant we missed the port of Bergen as it was too late to do anything that day. Big seas means we also missed Shetland Islands and Faroe Islands. instead we made for Iceland and had 2 make up ports of ...
