Additional details

Sail Date: Sep 2017

This was our first Viking OCEAN cruise and it was a beautiful ship, very easy to navigate. Although we were planning to eat mostly fish, the beef was some of the best we have eaten and stuck to that.

The service was good but not great. Viking needs to spend more time training their wait staff. Many times the tables remained dirty. Even when they came by your table they would leave the dirty dishes sitting there.

The Italian restaurant and Chef table had much better service and were the best places to dine. The upstairs buffet was good and always a safe bet with a great variety of items. This is where the wait staff needs to be on top of the tables.

Cabin Review

Cabin suite

The cabin was very comfortable. The outside terrace was a nice plus to sit outside or let fresh air in. The bathroom was spacious for a cruise ship and the heated floor was a bonus.

The room needed more draw space, other than that, we would book the suite again.

Port Reviews


The port of calls were all very enjoyable. Some of the ports you did not have enough time to enjoy. I think Viking should list on their itinerary the time you arrive and depart each port ahead of time so you can make your necessary plans.


Great city to explore.

St. Petersburg

we explored St Pete on our own.


enjoyed a day on the ship and the local seaside town instead of an all day adventure.


great town.


an enjoyable town to explore
