We code Viking as they were one of the first cruise lines to travel to Cuba. We had been on several Viking river cruises and were looking forward to the brand new ocean ship. The ship was amazing from our cabin ...

Disappointing first Viking experience

Very poor communication during the year-long reservation period about changes in times and places. Excursions were spent riding a bus to get somewhere for a very short rather hurried view of the place. Had a jr ...

They have a ways to go

The Viking Sun is a beautifully designed ship. It is a combination of class and simplicity. Even with 900 plus passengers on board we found few occasions where crowding was a problem. The port selection was very ...

Cuba Nightmare

Cuba. If you decide to travel to Cuba, do not take Viking cruise. I am a big fan of Viking but they did their passengers a disservice by landing at Cienfuegos. To get to Havana, we were onboard a bus on uneven, ...
