This was my first Viking cruise and I would definitely recommend it to all my friends. I have traveled around the world and China was on my list to see next. The Chinese people were friendly and the food was wonderful!

Our tour guide, Richard, was amazing, funny, informative and very organized. He has a true gift for sharing his country with his guests and he made everything run smoothly for us.

The ship furnishings seemed a little tired, but was OK. Having a dehumidifier in the room was a must. Our dining room staff were great! They were friendly and always remembered our names! The food on the ship was delicious and there was always a good variety.

Cabin Review

Average at best. No storage and the cabin staff showed minimal care. Humidity was a big problem.

Port Reviews


Amazing city. Old and new at its best. Air Pollution was overwhelming at times


Just drove by, not really close enough to appreciate


Loved it! A definite must see! People were friendly.


Loved the architecture!


Interesting and very crowded.


Shanghai is a beautiful city. I could have spent more time there easily!


Beautiful way to see the old and new buildings of Shanghai.


Glad I went to this garden
