Review for Viking Jupiter to Norwegian Fjords

2-5 Cruises • Age 60s

We booked the Iceland and Norway cruise in 2020, but were unable to go. We finally made it in 2022. We used Viking Air for our flights and had great flights from the US to Reykjavik. We arrived early in the morning so Viking picked us up and took us to a conference hall for breakfast and to wait until we could board our ship. Once on the ship, all the staff were friendly and willing to help. ...

Review for Viking Sea to South America

2-5 Cruises • Age 50s

My husband and I selected this cruise for the opportunity to enjoy warm Caribbean waters while exploring a bit of the Amazon. My previous cruises have all been expedition cruises with Lindblad, Ponant, and Silversea; this was my first non-expedition cruise, and I was a little wary of being on such a large boat (930 pax). However, we had a terrific, though not perfect, time and I would definitely ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

The trip was chosen due to first class nature of the ship, the excursions, and the location. From the moment we boarded until we disembarked, it was an amazing trip full of adventure, new sites, some of the best tour guides and experienced and fabulous ship personnel. The cruise director was enthusiastic and knowledge and wanted everyone to have a great time. The restaurants were top notch and ...

This was our first Viking Ocean cruise. It will not be our last. The ship is beautiful. The amenities are spectacular from the plethora of areas to just take it easy to the spa. And all with no kids and no pressure to purchase anything else. The Chef's Table restaurant has awesome service and awesome food. We got the wine pairings with the meal and it was a 5 star experience. We also tried ...

Review for Viking Orion to Australia & New Zealand

We chose this cruise due to the itinerary for Australia, including Tasmania and New Zealand. The crew was excellent and catered to each person's needs. Even though the cruise before us did not go as planned, not once did any of the crew discuss the problems that were encountered. Very professional! Our cruise went very smoothly and without a hitch. This is only our 2nd Viking cruise, but ...

Viking cruise is just like their advertising state, its a thinking man's cruise not a drinking man's. There is always interesting lecture regarding the history of your next port as well as the interesting people in the region. All the included tours are great as well as any of the added tours. The local tour guide are knowledgeable and make their tour interesting and they tend to include some ...

Viking Cruises are by far my favorite with excellent customer service, wonderful accommodations and delicious food. The excursions were well planned with knowledge tour guides. We knew when we boarded our excursion bus that we were going to learn about the local area and understand the history. Both my husband and I relaxed in the steam room and revived in the snow room. It was a treat to be so ...

Disappointing ship

Review for Viking Star to Panama Canal & Central America

10+ Cruises • Age 70s

We wanted to try another 5.5 - -6 star line so we chose this one. The dates and going through the Canal were good for us. The ship is pretty, the cabin was great. The cabin steward was friendly and very helpful. He kept the mini bar filled with the beverages we wanted. The service was poor, we had to wait 30 minutes one night to even get water. The wait staff was working hard, but ...

Viking won us over on our first river cruise last year, and our first ocean cruise was just a fine.

Wonderful opportunity to see Athens, Crete, Rhodes, Ephesus, Troy and Istanbul. Beautiful ship, wonderful food and the service that makes Viking famous. The shore excursions had informative and friendly guides. We visited three UNESCO World Heritage sites- my favorite was the medieval walled city on Rhodes. The ruins at Ephesus were incredible. We both enjoyed the many friendly dogs in ...

This was my fourth Viking cruise and at this point, I can't imagine cruising with any other line. I didn't really choose this itinerary; it chose me through an offer I couldn't refuse. I love the Viking ships and I love knowing exactly where I am and where to go as soon as I step on board. I get the greatest sense of homecoming each time I return. It's like a beloved vacation resort that takes ...
