Viking vs Regent- A Personal Perspective

Sail Date: Feb 2024

After sailing almost exclusively with Regent, we decided to try Viking for our next Ocean cruise. They offered an itinerary not available with Regent at an attractive price. It was a 16 day Los Angeles to Hawaii return. This long post maybe helpful for those who are considering switching or choosing between the two.

We called this a personal perspective because it relates to our particular circumstances and should be read in that context.

To wit, we are a retired couple in our late 70s. Other than a 4 night mini cruise with Holland America, all our ocean cruises have been with Regent where we have Gold status. We also did 4 Viking River cruises and one with Avalon. Our exploring and adventure seeking vacations are now in our rear view mirror with the main items on our bucket list having been ticked off. We now prefer quite pampered relaxation with lazy seas days and short excursions but with the opportunity to meet interesting people. Mega cruise ships are not for us.
