Viking Good but South America not so much

Having been to Europe on Viking River & Ocean we thought we would try South America this time. Disappointing as Argentina and Chile not very open to tourists. Getting off in Buenos Aires was a disaster-3 hours ...

Volendam's Grand South America Voyage 2020

The ports. The ports. The ports. The Price. The line (HAL). These are the things that attracted me to this voyage. This voyage of 11 weeks was my first cruise with a duration of over three weeks, and that ...

Pleasant escape from Winter, along Pacific coast of Central & South America

Oceania cruises are great for couples (nothing interesting for children or singles) This cruise was from San Franciso to Santiago Chile, i.e. a 22-day section of a world cruise. In addition to embarkation and ...

Round the horn! Now, that's exciting.

We chose the cruise because it took us to unfamiliar territory and had such elements of excitement about it. Imagine, to actually sail the Straits of Magellan! Our extra time in Valparaiso was well spent--we've ...

South America, Iguazú Falls and the Galápagos Islands

Other reviews have quite adequately covered the cruise portion of South America & the Chilean Fjords on Viking Jupiter. My only comment would be to support the exceptional ratings given and echo the compliments ...

Bait and switch on excursions

AVOID THIS CRUISE UNLESS YOU WANT TO STAY ON BOARD THE ENTIRE TRIP!!!!!!!!!!!! Great ship; good crew, with just a few exceptions. The problem is the excursions offered by Viking. Food is much better than Royal ...

Discovering Viking Was An A+ Discovery!

This cruise was chosen by friends and they asked us to go along. They had cruised Viking before; we hadn't. From the minute I boarded the ship I knew I was "home". It was beautifully appointed and had so many small ...

Amazing ship and crew

We chose this cruise for several reasons: the Viking reputation, the cruise itinerary and the mixture of excursions and sea days. We were not disappointed. We had a penthouse veranda cabin, which was roomy with ...

Not bad and not good either: it's mediocre.

Imagine a ship with a weird design, everything is turned inward, the window views of some bars are blocked by equipment and always close the blinds of all windows at night. To see the sea you have to go to the pool ...
