My brother, who had taken previous Viking Ocean cruises, talked me into it because my wife and I had taken several river cruises on Viking and had enjoyed them. The four of us had cruised before and enjoyed each others company. We very much enjoyed and were impressed with the Amazon River experience. I would have greatly appreciated wider WI-FI coverage. We had to very frequently rejoin ...

This was such a unique itinerary that we felt compelled to book as soon as we saw it! This was a once in a lifetime trip which really informed us about our big, big neighbors to the far south. The ship was as we expected since we had been on the Viking Star two years ago and were familiar with the layout and amenities. The staff were exceptional in attitude and service, going above and ...

We looked forward to our first Viking ocean cruise after a lovely Viking River Cruise earlier this year. We’ve traveled extensively on other ocean cruise lines and were extremely disappointed in this 48 day cruise. Starting with Embarkation, the tone of the cruise was set. Viking booked the cheapest airfare with a 3-1/2 hour layover at DFW airport which is a haven for storm-related delays. We were ...

We chose this trip solely for its itinerary (specifically, Amazon, Rio and Buenos Aires) which has proven to be quite exciting. The ship exceeded our expectations (this was our first sail on Viking after cruising with Sliversea, Oceania, Celebrity and others). Viking Sun is a beautifully appointed ship with exemplary design (it is also very new: delivered on 25 September 2017). Plenty of ...

We sailed from San Juan , 1000 miles up the amazon river, hit cities in Brazil including Rio; visited Montevideo and Buenos Aires. Great itinerary. The crew were all great, without exception. We say the hotel GM every day. The Captain made a point of visiting several times during the cruise - before this, I only say the captains on formal nights or as a special exception. The stewards ...

After well over thirty ocean and river cruises, we were excited to board the Sun for our first ocean adventure with Viking, From the moment we were greeted at the airport, Viking made us feel like honored guests. Everything was well planned with little delay (OK there's not much anyone can do about the traffic between LaGuardia and midtown Manhattan at 5 PM on a Friday). Our stateroom was ...

Looked forward to this So American sojourn as we have never been to So America previously. The port destinations and the available tours were excellent. We particularly liked the 1,000 miles into the Amazon. There is a gem of a show put on by locals at your second Amazonian port! This is your normal, Viking extraordinary trip, with only two blips on the radar. This itinerary is rich with sea days, ...

The embarkation was excellent, plenty of staff to check in all the guest with very little waiting time. We were upgraded to an Explorer suite which was a pleasant surprise. We were impressed with all the amenities in our suite. We had booked a Penthouse Junior suite. The food, as usual was outstanding as was all the dining room wait staff including the hostess who remembered our names and ...

Travelling to the Amazon and visiting Rio were the reasons for choosing this trip. The Included trips were good but the additional excursions were excellent. The submarine ride in Barbados was a o e in a lifetime experience. On board, we both enjoyed the lecture series. We learned so much about the people,history, and politics of each country we visited. It made the shore excursions so much more ...
