Review for Viking Octantis to Canada & New England

We waited over a year and a half for this cruise. And our first Viking cruise lived up to all our expectations. Octantis is a wonderful cruise ship and a scientific research ship very comfortably rolled into one small vessel. The ship is decorated in human-scale items. Not lots of glitz, just solid, comfortable furniture arranged in ways to encourage interaction among the guests. Public spaces ...

I chose this Expedition cruise as it had a great itinerary around the remote Scottish Isles. Particularly good if travelling alone as I found crew and passengers really friendly and helpful. The expedition team were great. Customer services desk staff excellent for sorting out any queries or problems. Cabin lacked space to put your clothes as no drawers and only 1 small wardrobe. Not ...

My wife and I (mid-50's) did the 10 night Quito and Flora Inner Loop with our two adult children (19, 22). Overall this was a great experience except for covid which I will save for the last paragraph for those of you cruising during covid (hopefully limited to just the rest of 2022). I have tried to provide info here that I wish I had known prior to sailing (so my apologies if it is ...

This was my fiftieth cruise (my husband’s 48th), in about 25 years. A good friend found the Viking Great Lakes expedition cruises advertised and the four of us decided we were ready for something unique. I’ve been on 13 different cruise lines. Celebrity was our favorite until 2015 when we tried Crystal. When we planned a European river cruise, after quite a bit of research, I chose to go on ...

An exploration up the western Greenland coast from Iceland.

We chose this cruise as we were interested in Greenland and it's communities. To some degree we also wanted to see the artic wilderness and glaciers and get an appreciation for the damage that global warming is doing.to these sensitive environments. Fridtjof Nansen is an excellent ship being only a couple of years old. The size of the vessel (500 passengers) makes it a relatively intimate ...

As the Kimberley region in WA is remote and difficult to experience, we thought a cruise would show us the wilderness, safely and in relative comfort. We had travelled the Gibb River road, some years ago, but wanted to the see the coast and the interesting islands off shore. We also wanted to see the Indigenous art galleries, which are not readily accessible. And we were not disappointed. We ...

Fantastic ship with a few shakedown logistics issues

We've enjoyed three Viking European river cruises, so when we heard the line was launching expedition boats in the Great Lakes, we decided it was time for an adventure afloat in our own country. We had to overcome a few hurdles: the ArriveCAN vaccination requirements, the VeriFly "ready to travel" standards for the airline and the 72-hour COVID-19 testing window to get on board (which applied only ...

We choose this cruise for two reasons, we thought after covid a cruise around the Uk would be the safest and also it went to many destinations we have never been too. As a wheelchair user I was not expecting to leave the ship unless we were moored at port ( just three) but no the expedition team got me on every Zodiac and landing to places like Iona , Tresco to name but a few . They were ...

We just completed the June 18th Great Lakes Explorer cruise, starting in Milwaukee and ending in Thunder Bay, Ontario.  It was our first Viking cruise.  Pros: 1. We thought the ship was beautiful, and enjoyed the many "nooks and crannies" to sit and relax. 2. The crew was absolutely wonderful.  They worked hard, remembered names, and were gracious and friendly. 3.  Food ran the ...

We've done both Viking Ocean and River, so we are solid fans of Viking and appreciate the high quality and service they provide guests. Overall the cruise greatly exceeded our expectations.
