Too Much COVID Concerns to Enjoy the Cruise

Review for Viking Jupiter to Europe - Western Mediterranean

Chose this cruise because it had an inviting itinerary, with enough new ports to allow for self touring. Started in Reykjavik Iceland. The moment we checked in there was an intensity about COVID. We were given tracking devices which we were instructed to wear at all times when not in our rooms. They went out of their way to avoid calling them tracking devices. Once on board we were informed that ...

Iceland Natural Beauty cruise was amazing!

We had to jump through lots of hoops (apps, covid tests, proof of vaccination, etc) to get on this cruise, but it was worth it! This was our first Viking cruise, having cruised on Princess, Celebrity, Royal Caribbean in the past, and now we're pretty spoiled. The Jupiter was beautiful and spotlessly clean. The crew were so friendly and helpful (of course, it did help that there were only 640+ ...

A tale of two cruises

Review for Viking Sky to Baltic Sea

Iceland was rated a Stage 3 country right before we left for the cruise. We had Covid tests within 72 hrs of departure. We were tested daily and restricted from going off on our own. We wore masks in the public areas of the ship, on buses, and any time (which was rare) that we were indoors. We wore contact tracing lanyards everywhere we went. There were reminders of handwashing and sanitizing ...

Highly overrated

We chose to go on Viking because of the excellent rating they had and also the nice itinerary of the cruise. The ship itself is very beautiful in decor and layout. The staff were also some of the best have had on a cruise. However the cruise was one of the worst we have experienced. The day before we were to leave for the cruise the CDC downgraded Iceland from level 1 to level 3. The ...

We have traveled with Viking on 10 cruises and were looking forward to a fun voyage around Iceland. We had the required COVID vaccinations and the COVID nasal swab (within 72 hours of flying). Upon boarding the Jupiter, all passengers are given a COVID tracking button and one is required to carry this tracker at all times outside the stateroom. The button allows Viking personnel to monitor your ...

Dreadful

We chose this ship as it is brand new... never again. The design of this ship is dreadful as there is almost no seating areas outside and if you do find a seat outside if the helecopter is in operation the noise is unbearable. For some reason they have put the swimming pool inside the restaurant along with sunbeds and showers! With water from the pool splashing on to the restaurant floor ...

Extremely Disappointed

We chose this as it was to be a discovery expedition, which in reality it wasn’t. The ship itself wasn’t completed. The cabins weren’t ready of finished, the decks outside were still being finished and had contractors working night and day. Issues with machines in laundry, gang planks weren’t working, the list goes on . There wasn’t enough seating at the buffet at breakfast and lunch, also ...

Inaugural trip was less than ideal

10+ Cruises • Age 70s

This is a very hard review to write, because the ship has been designed to be to many things that are so different, which is difficult to achieve. The design has certainly tried to incorporate a high degree of luxury and speciality gourmet dinning venues in an expedition vessel with many unique features. So from my point of view, I really have to review it on the basis that it is an expedition ...

"Majestic" 60th Birthday Celebration Cruise to Iceland & Norway

10+ Cruises • Age 60s

This was our second Viking Ocean Cruise so we knew exactly what to expect and Viking met our expectations & more. We chose this itinerary (Iceland/Faroe Islands/Norway) to celebrate my husband's 60th birthday. Viking provides the best value all-inclusive, "quiet luxury" cruising we've experienced with spacious balcony rooms throughout the ship, top-notch service, delicious & varied dining, ...

Iceland’s Majestic Landscape

If you enjoy the outdoors, the ports on this cruise won’t disappoint. My husband and I hiked, rode bikes, climbed waterfalls, in short, took advantage of the landscapes offered in Iceland, the Faroe Islands and Norway. We planned most of our own shore excursions by ourselves or with a small group. We both hate large coach tours, so most shore excursions offered by Viking were not an option. ...
