Viking Ocean Cruise Reviews

Docked in Isafjordur in a fjord, with high cliffs out the window. Water was like glass. Said "WOW!" when I pulled the drapes and looked out (starboard side).
Port in Livorno Italy. Not able to set foot there.
The 3 story atrium where entertainment played nightly.

My wife and I booked an ocean cruise for our Christmas holiday and made sure it was long enough to also include New Year’s Eve, our anniversary. We were so excited! We’ll, we were excited until we started trying to book our dining and excursions. I don’t know how Viking works it, but they open the booking at 11:00 PM eastern and I started up to be able to get good reservations. Dining ...

First of all big thanks to Viking for doing a great job and delivering a perfect product under enormous pressure from all kinds of officials (CDC, local authorities etc. you name it...). We even visited Dominica which turned away Celebrity Equinox due to Covid cases. Viking arranged us perfect flights to San Juan. Embarkation was pretty fast and smooth. About the ship: it's our second time on ...

This was a great, great cruise to the Caribbean starting in FLL on 12/10/21. The weather did not always cooperate, but that is life. Viking sets the COVID gold standard for onboard requirements and testing! Good shore excursions with EXCELLENT COVID measures in those countries. Better that the USA! Comments about the ship: The Star (in service 2015) is in need a “touch up” as a few ...

This was the 3rd of three back to back solo cruises; Crystal and Celebrity were the others. I had wanted to go on Viking cruise since going to a travel convention and seeing the features of Viking. Overall first impressions were embarkment and on ship within 5 minutes and then the room was very spacious plenty of room and storage and love the coffee machine and amenities. The ship looked like ...

First off, we’re fairly new cruisers, In our late 50’s and 60’s. We’ve sailed on Disney, Celebrity, Norwegian, Princess, Emerald Waterways and MSC. We like trying different lines to compare. We were excited to try Viking after reading all the great reviews. There were items we loved and others not so much. More on this to come. We drove a rental car down from Port Canaveral after just getting ...

After a Viking Ocean Cruise in Sept. 2021 leaving from Malta to Croatia We had such a good time that we booked another cruise this November, having just returned I feel that there are a few things that other guests should be aware of. The cruise ship this November was the Orion leaving from Ft Lauderdale to Los Angeles through the Panama Canal an 18 day cruise. Our Malta cruise in Sept was on ...

We are not that experienced as Viking cruisers, having spent more time sailing with Seabourn and Silversea. We did, however, spend four weeks on the Viking Sun crossing the Pacific last year and thoroughly enjoyed the Viking experience, so we decided to try them again. Sadly, the Star did not come close to our experience on the Sun and I explain why below. Of course, our trans-Pacific cruise was ...

Wonderful Cruise; Food Disappointing

The ship was beautiful (Orion) and our cabin was on the 3rd floor. Perfect position for movement to both the front and back of the ship. We only has about 400 on the ship which made us feel like we were on a private yaught. It was our first Viking Ocean cruise and both the ship and the ports were very good. First of all our bathroom was the largest we have had on any of our prior 7 cruises. ...

My wife and I recently completed our first Viking Ocean cruise onboard Jupiter for the Mediterranean Odyssey Itinerary. This was my first ocean cruise after having previously completed (and loving) 2 Viking River cruises. We choose Viking primarily for the destination-focused experience and this cruise did not disappoint. We had no significant pre-cruise issues. We navigated the COVID-related ...

Viking's 2nd Cruise to not be in the "Viking Bubble!"

Review for Viking Sea to Mediterranean

I feel compelled to write a review since nobody has reviewed since Viking changed it's policy on allowing passengers to be free in port. We found out on our 10 October departure from Athens to Venice that we were only the 2nd cruise to be allowed free reign in port. We were thrilled. Starting pre-cruise in Crete we shopped alot knowing it was possible we wouldn't be allowed off the ship. But we ...
