Disappointing

Two weeks ago, I returned from a four-month Around the World Cruise on the Viking Sun. The ship is beautiful. However, there were many things wrong with this cruise which is why I can give it only two stars. Five ports were missed because of "bad weather". Passengers were given NO compensation for ports missed except for one port when the ship had engine problems. The ship is two-years old and ...

We took the 141 day cruise because it hit most of the places on our bucket list and it was in celebration of our retirement. The ship was quite nice and our cabin was spacious enough. But after 4 months we started to get bored with the menu, it had been repeated once already. The activities were getting humdrum as well as the entertainment. At the beginning of the cruise, there was a great variety ...

Viking has thought of everything to make this World Cruise the best of everything. The entertainment, excursions, enrichment, and food have all been exceptional. Viking has staffed this World Cruise with their best people in every department. Thus service is excellent. We have enjoyed cooking classes on days at sea. The enrichment program speakers have been very good and come from a variety of ...

Enjoying immensely our 141 day world cruise, which is Vikings first. First class in every way except the included shore excursions - so don't consider that shore excursions are included when weighing up if this is the cruise for you. You have to buy your port excursions through Viking or independently online unless you want crap and don't mind wasting your time. They may look great in print, ...

It was happening when we wanted to go, and to places that were on our bucket list. And we had previously been on a Viking River cruise . Which was totally outstanding. The ship was brand new, it was its maiden voyage. The restaurants on board were magnificent, there wasn’t a detail that was missed. I don’t think you could ever beat how terrific the crew was, it was like a family. And ...

We have always enjoyed cruising with Viking. First with their river cruises and then Ocean cruise. We initially were skeptical about a 120 day ocean cruise but we were. very happy that we chose to take this cruise. I had some food allergy issues but the staff were very good to make sure my needs were accommodated. The staff of the ship were excellent. From the Barista who made us Capuchinos, to ...

We've always wanted to go on a world cruise (150 days) - and we had heard such wonderful things about Viking. Also, the Viking Sun was a new ship with modern electronics. The ship was a smaller one with less than 1000 passengers, which was great for us. All the appointments on the ship were clean, new and comfortable. A goodly number of dining venues was available and all were very good. The ...

We had planned for this Viking inaugural round-the-world cruise two years earlier, but we decided to get married one week before our departure - so it became our extended honeymoon and what a memorable honeymoon it turned out to be. Before signing up for the cruise, we studied the countries and ports we will be visiting. We were very impressed with the ports that Viking has chosen since most of ...

Inaugural world cruise that gave me an opportunity to see the world on a beautiful new ship. The ship is beautiful and has so many spaces for meeting friends or spending some quiet time alone. The crew was always helpful and went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed. The guest speakers were excellent and the entertainment was excellent. Lots of local ...

My embarkation experience was okay. I had no problems with my flights. My suitcase was damaged between the airport and the ship and delivery was delayed until quite late . I thoroughly enjoyed my time on board. I liked the decor and available amenities. I frequently walked on the decks and used the gym. I used many of the public areas throughout the day. I especially enjoyed the upper level ...
