First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

Fantastic experience. Amazing places, with hundreds of thousands of penguins and seals in South Georgia Island (a must) and Antarctica, with hundreds of whales along the away, among others. Top notch crew with non-stop options for science and history explorations. Wonderful people who love what they do. Very good food with tons of choices. Very nice boat with great first class cabins. Quark ...

Great ship, great crew, but there's still work to be done

Always had Antarctica on our bucket list, so when Viking launched it's new expedition ships, were hooked. We like Viking because of their subdued approach: no kids, no casino, no loud music. A beige color scheme with nautical themes abound. Rather, interesting talks and in depth learning are provided. We were upgraded to a larger room which provided additional storage space on deck 4. The dining ...

We chose this cruise because my husband got a nice discount being a United Airlines employee. We had never been on a cruise before. It’s pretty much the only way to experience Antarctica so we pulled the trigger - Antarctica was on our bucket list. Great expeditions, attentive staff and fabulous food. We were pleasantly surprised with how nice everything was. We had always thought cruises ...

This cruise was absolutely fantastic. The staff were friendly and helpful. The expeditions were super well organised and extremely interesting. The expedition crew were so knowledgeable, informative, funny and inspiring! Best science lessons I have ever experienced! Field trips are so exciting - for any age! The underwater drone was fascinating especially when looking at shipwrecks and the sea ...

During the visit we managed to see the Northern Lights as well as stunning scenery, whales and other wildlife and go on ...

This was not just a cruise. It was an experience, and it met or exceeded our expectations. We have taken cruises before and always enjoyed them. Although we enjoyed this cruise too, it was more about seeing and exploring the wonders of the White Continent. The word "expedition" feels accurate. It was more adventurous than other cruises, and in that respect, it certainly met our ...

Not meet our expectations

Review for Viking Polaris to Antarctica

10+ Cruises • Age 60s

This is our third Viking cruise. We were very pleased with the first two but a little disappointed this time. Firstly, it is Antarctica expedition but the ship didn’t even reach the Antarctic circle. Most of the guests would probably not know that. The ship cruises around Antarctic peninsula where it is so close to the Antarctic Circle. It would be much greater psychologically for the guests ...

We chose the Viking cruise because it seemed to have the most to offer. An added bonus was this new ship! We especially enjoyed the common areas both inside and outside. One of our favorite spots was the Finse Terrace. The crew on the Polaris was top notch as well. Our cabin stewards went out of their way to make sure we had whatever we asked for. We celebrated not only New Year’s on board, ...

We have traveled with Viking River, and Viking Ocean, about 7 or 8 trips so far and have always been impressed with the Viking experience. This Viking Expedition trip did not disappoint. on the very first day we had a briefing from the Expedition Manager. After a consultation with the Captain the Expedition Manager informed all the guests that the original plan for our first day after crossing the ...

I mainly went to Antarctica for the adventure and it did not disappoint. We were well informed about each landing and what to expect. Staff were knowledgeable and helped point out interesting findings including wildlife and geology when off the ship and they also gave fascinating lectures in the Aula on their specializations. Ship was excellent including well designed rooms and activities. I ...
