Wonderful ship and crew

Review for Viking Jupiter to Spain

10+ Cruises • Age 70s

Even with the covid restrictions and protocols this was a great cruise. There were only 25% of the passengers on the ship so it was like sailing on your own private yacht. Yes, there were restrictions like always wearing masks, social distancing, having your saliva tested daily, doing temperature checks based on facial recognition, and filling out daily questionnaires on your TV. Once we got ...

Too Much COVID Concerns to Enjoy the Cruise

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 on Viking Sky

I love the fact there is no one under the age of 18 on these ships. Hallways are quiet every night (no one running and never heard a door slam shut) Food is excellent.. no surcharges for specialty restaurants. Entertainment is not flashy stage shows (I never go on the other lines anyway) The speakers have talks on what you are actually going to see and you learn about the geography and wildlife ...

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+ ...

2-5 Cruises • Age 70s

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 ...

Viking does a great job with its river and ocean cruises and this was no exception. We chose Iceland in August 2021 with two other couples as a unique destination best reached by a cruise with its shore excursions allowing us to explore the geography, history, geology, and people. The shore excursions and lunches were well organized, pleasant, and educationally rewarding (which we like about ...

We wanted to see Iceland and this trip satisfied all of our longings. The ship held about 840 passengers and never felt crowded. A very classy trip with great staff, entertainment and dining. The daytime lectures were informative and extremely educational. The entertainers were Broadway quality. The room attendants were so attentive and professional especially in light of the fact that they ...

CAUTION! WARNING! READ BEFORE BOOKING WITH VIKING

10+ Cruises • Age 70s

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 ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

After being pretty isolated during the pandemic, I wanted to travel. And I’d never been on an ocean cruise. I chose Viking because of three previous river cruises with Viking, which I considered exceptional. The ocean cruise was just amazing. Iceland is spectacular, but so is Viking Sky. I was pretty overwhelmed by the beauty of the ship, and I loved the size. My husband never wanted to do a ...
