Very disappointing

We thought it would be a great trip. This was our 3rd Viking cruise. The first two were very good. This cruise was extremely disappointing. The service was very poor in dining. Sometimes there were no dishes and you had to wait and the cafe wasn't even busy. Dirty dishes piled on the table not removed, lack of beverages served. Some of the employees were miserable; on the other hand some ...

Visit family in Japan and tour Japan at same time! This was a way to see the majority of the major sites in Japan in a 2 week period. The cities of Nagasaki and Hiroshima were historical was very moving to experience. Tokyo was very interesting and the Imperial palace was excellent to see. The ship was emasculate and the service was exceptional! The food was very good and the diversity of eating ...

We loved the Viking River Cruises so wanted to try the ocean cruise and also wanted to see China. For the most part we were very pleased. The cabin and service were excellent. The food was good but not excellent. Their waffles were inedible. We tried the chef's table two times - both times the food was too spicy. Since there was a limited menu choice, we opted to skip eating there. ...

Japan has always been on my bucket list. And Viking provided a very comfortable way to do that. The cabins are spacious and provide you with everything you’ll need. There is a comfortable bed, plenty of storage space and a desk which encases a makeup area and mirror. All the amenities you’ll need from fresh water daily, a telephone, flat screen television and a very nice sitting area. In addition ...

We had one of the best cabin attendants ever on Viking cruises. Lectures were not as good as previous cruises. Limited activities during sea days. Ongoing ship information by the captain very good considering typhoon in area. Embark and disembark very organized and quick. Music by individual piano, violin, and guitar very enjoyable late day and evening. Selected night entertainers very good. ...

We chose this cruise because we had never been to Japan. We would have appreciated more lectures and information in depth about the places we visited. The excursions were satisfactory, but they were very crowded with 30 plus people on the bus and some of the guides were difficult to understand. Some of the excursions were quite expensive and the included excursions tended to be good except that ...

Having been on several river cruises with Viking which we love doing, we thought we’d book an Ocean cruise with Viking for our ruby wedding anniversaries. . We were a bit frustrated before going on the cruise owing to the system in place for booking trips. Seemed to be class driven. I.e. the more you paid the better the choice. We couldn’t book a morning trip on all the included trips and some of ...

This was my third trip with Viking, and my first Ocean cruise. I loved everything! The shore excursions were great, well-organized, a variety of lengths and sites, friendly, knowledgeable and fun tour guides. The ship was beautiful and meticulously cared for. The LivNordic Spa was our favorite place on board to relax. The ship offered a wide range of dining options from the World Café ...

First of all, this idiot company planned an itinerary which would have brought us to a Korean port on a national Korean Holliday, something that should have been known well in advance. Then after paying for the voyage and the refund deadline passing, they tell the paid up passengers that the only Korean port is cancelled because it falls on a Korean National Holliday. How was this not known in ...

The overall experience with Viking Ocean Cruise was excellent. Having been on other ocean cruise lines, we appreciated the laid back but elegant atmosphere of Viking Orion. The service was also very good - everyone wanted to be as helpful as possible. Things that could use a little improvement included the logistics of getting from the airport to the ship. There seemed to be a little more ...
