Tokyo to Vancouver via Russia and Alaska

We had originally booked a shorter cruise of the inside passage when we found this longer cruise for less money because it was a repositioning cruise. I was able to show my wife beautiful parts of Japan before ...

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. ...

Beautiful ship, some disappointing excursions

This was our 14th cruise with Viking (9 river, 5 ocean). So, obviously, we have been very happy with them. We have come to expect beautiful ships and helpful polite staff and this trip certainly lived up to our ...

Explorer Suites Comparison

This cruise, "Far Eastern Horizens", was chosen as a logical extension of "North Pacific Passage", from Vancouver to Tokyo, where Viking kindly upgraded us to a forward Explorer Suite. Because we booked (a fully ...

A cruise to remember.........FOR ALL THE WRONG REASONS!!

We normally cruise with Silversea, but with all the positive hype surrounding Viking Ocean and River cruising we decided it would be worth further investigation and financial commitment to cruise with this line. ...

Greatest Ship I've Sailed On

Chose this cruise because we wanted to visit Japan, Eastern Russia and the Behring Sea. The ship was second to none, and I've sailed on many ocean cruises: 4 times on Princess (reasonably good for the money, but ...

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 ...

Take another ship

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 ...

Seasoned cruiser but our first time on Viking Ocean

The itinerary matched exactly the route (North Pacific) we desired especially Tokyo embarkation and Vancouver disembarkation ports. We had sailed on many Viking River cruises and we were confident that Viking Ocean ...
