As expected the service from Viking was excellent except for one major problem. The Viking representatives at the hotel in Venice had NO CLUE what was going on. When asked about transportation around Venice they ...

Amazing!

Viking is a one of a kind, unique cruise line. Once you cruise with Viking, you will never cruise with anyone else. The customer service is impeccable! When we go to Europe, we tend to go for no less than a ...

Reluctant 4-Star

I do recommend this cruise but there were numerous shortcomings. I wish there was a rating of 3.5 stars as that is what I would have chosen. Overall Viking does do a very nice job. The lobby live music nightly was ...
