Viking could be so much more if it simply tried a bit harder.

Food was recycled several times to the point that it got spoiled. I ate gummy shrimp first night at seafood buffet and got food poisoning and severe stomach cramps. Before ten day cruise was over got food poisoning three times. Most of cruise stayed within 50 yards of a bathroom. Most shore excursions were impossible to take as gastric problems existed. Every night at sea was very rougn but ...

Room: Had Deluxe Veranda that, per Viking, was 270 sf. As soon as we opened the room door, it was a shock. I measured: 193sq not including the balcony. Storage: Three drawers in cabinet, one drawer in each night table - and the closet. Hardly enough. Communication: Abysmal. In the first three days (yes, three days) I had to go to Guest Services (GS) 15 times - I finally stopped counting. ...

Heard they were a top cruise line in Travel magazines. They had to have had to pay for someone to say that, it just isn't so. I called Viking inquiring about the cruise. My first and most important question was " does this penthouse in fact have a KING size bed and NOT a super queen. I was assured by the Viking rep that IT WAS A KING! Due to health I was on a low to no sodium diet. When I ...

We chose to do a repositioning cruise on the Viking Sea in March of 2018 from San Juan to Barcelona. We have sailed over a dozen times on other cruise lines, predominately Seabourn and have done four other trans-Atlantic cruises, but were intrigued by the pictures and reviews of these new ships. First the good: The Viking Sea was a beautiful ship with spacious public areas. We loved the ...

My wife and I enjoyed this cruise for the most part, in spite of the numerous issues encountered, and were able to achieve our fundamental goals of relaxing and reconnecting during this much-anticipated, 25th wedding anniversary trip. However, much of this relaxation was achieved irrespective of Viking, and NOT because of them, and the experience was overpriced for what was delivered. This ...

I wanted to experience the new ocean going vessels; my friend had traveled on the brand new ocean vessel last year and raved about it. I was extremely impressed with the emphasis on cultures and learning. I enjoyed the classical music. The nightly entertainment was very enjoyable; the actors/singers/dancers were highly talented. The food was well prepared and presented. The made to order ...

Perhaps Viking is not the lowest cost cruise line, however, you get soooo much more for your money! FREE excursions, wine with your meals, heated floors in bathrooms, excellent service, etc. You will be very happy with your choice, if you choose Viking! My wife and I chose Viking because of these FREE extras. We have been on twelve other cruises, but this was the first one with Viking, and ...

We chose this cruise because it's itinerary was exactly what we were looking for on our dream vacation and we had heard nothing but good about Viking Cruises. We arrived in Athens 3 days before the cruise to get a more in depth experience in Greece. When it was time to embark we arrived at the port and were greeted and escorted aboard for an arrival lunch. Our stateroom was ready for us before ...

We have sailed with Viking before to China and on the Tulip river cruise. We wanted to enjoy a larger boat with more options for eating and recreation and evening entertainment. We also wanted to go to a New Itinerary and the "Into The MIdnight Sun" looked like great ports to see in Norway and Scotland - we also went first to Iceland and later for a couple of days in London area after the ...

Yes you do get one included excursion but if you have already taken the tour offered, you can’t transfer it to another excursion in the same port. The talented entertainment was good but don’t go looking for a big production number. This is the first time ever we have had food poisoning on a ship. I got it first and within 6 hours so did my wife. It wasn’t seasickness because we have never ...
