Viking Sea Cruise Review by Foundryfielder

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Jun 2016
  • Destination: Norwegian Fjords

This was Viking Sea's inaugural voyage up the coast of Norway so glitches were to be expected. The ship itself is a marvel of design and the shipbuilder's craft. The onboard service was top shelf. Aside from general minor annoyances, such as poor flight scheduling resulting in our bags getting delayed in Copenhagen, the main problem was in the shore excursions which failed to live up to what one would expect of Viking. I'm sure they'll get it sorted out, but for this trip, unfortunately, we were the guinea pigs and the results were poor/average at best. Our other big complaint is not directed specifically at Viking, but at the cruise industry in general and their kowtowing to the ADA. We are in our 70s so I'm sure we'll get there, but the level of decrepitude of the clientele that we encountered on this cruise was stunning, and their sense of entitlement even more so.
