Chose Viking for a sophisticated luxurious experience- NOT.

CONSTRUCTION (!) POWERWASHING(!) Misleading ports of call- “ Tuscany Florence” “Provence” - Yeah sure as long as you’re paying to get yourself there! When I originally booked St. Tropez was one of the ports which was abruptly switched to Sete, France. Not an exciting destination to say the least. Entertainment- AMATUER hour. They’ll tell you there’s a jazz club but no jazz to be played.

Food- average at best. I lobster tail on lobster night was over cooked mush. Dont fall for the “elegant” sounding videos- check photos I included- there’s part of what you’ll get. (Photo n video could not be posted in this site w phone)

Response from VikingS, Community Team

We appreciate you traveling with us, Shiloh, and for sharing your feedback. It’s regrettable to hear your cruise encountered weather conditions unsuitable for cruising to St. Tropez, and that...

Cabin Review

Cabin Deluxe Veranda

Fine, no complaints w the cabin-Until the ratcheting banging scraping of the railings above my head between 830 and 9 AM -And also when men in gray jumpsuits started power washing my balcony.
