BLAST into the Midnight Sun onboard Viking Mars!

Review for Viking Mars to Baltic Sea

My husband and I were onboard Viking Mars on June 25. It was a 14-night itinerary that went from London, Scotland, and ending in Bergen, Norway. We’ve always wanted to take this itinerary and it did NOT disappoint! It has history, culture, and witnessing a natural phenomenon of the sun that never set below the horizon in 24 hours. This only happens between May and July in the Arctic Circle, so ...

To be honest, we chose the Baltic Cruise in June 22 as likely to be amongst the most COVID free in the world. This turned out to be correct, with few restrictions on board, though might have applied elsewhere. We also wanted to explore a new area, though we had previously visited Berlin, St Petersburg and Stockholm. So we did not take the included tour to Berlin, but the vast majority did and came ...

The Viking Ocean Cruises do not have their act together

I chose this cruise because I had taken a Viking River Cruise several years ago and loved it. But this cruise has been a disaster. The arranged flights basically cut a day off the cruise up front. Then cancelled flights caused the flight to be rebooked to the next day AFTER the ship would have departed. But we protested to the airline and luckily got a flight several hours later. We checked ...

Originally, we choose the cruise to visit Moscow, St Petersburg and Tallin but decided to go ahead with the revised itinerary to Berlin and Gdańsk. Arrival at the airport (Stockholm) was handled very well. We were met at the airport and our suitcases had already been collected. We were escorted to our private transfer and provided with towels and water. Embarkation through security and ...

I chose this cruise because of the St. Petersburg stop, which, of course, was cancelled because of the war in Ukraine. I had booked this cruise on Crystal for 2020. It was postponed to 2021 and then 2022. Crystal went bankrupt in January 2022. Having been on Viking on the Yangtze River Cruise, we thought we would try Viking on the same itinerary. This time we were on a Viking vessel (as opposed to ...

"Russia & The Baltic Sea" becomes "Scenic Scandinavia"

We had this cruise booked from back in mid 2020 to celebrate my wife's retirement in 2022. When we were advised of the itinerary change due to the war in Ukraine we had a long discussion regarding whether we still took the cruise or rebooked - our reason for booking was St Petersburg as neither of us had visited Russia. We made the decision to go ahead with the revised "Scenic Scandinavia" ...

My wife and I had a beautiful cruise on the Viking Venus. Since the cruise was not at capacity, I felt like we were treated like royalty. Everything was great, no complaints. Our meals and the entertainment were excellent. Our room steward did a fantastic job and was always on time for the spit collection. There were plenty of spots on the ship for filling quiet time. The Viking provided ...

Even with itinerary changes due to the Russian invasion of Ukraine, this trip was terrific. Yes, we were disappointed at the elimination of St. Petersburg, Helsinki and Tallinn, and some of the substitutes did not hold their level of interest, but overall it was still great. This was our second Viking cruise, and everything was perfect. The food is wonderful. Even their "non-specialty" ...

This was our fourth Viking trip. All have been wonderful. This trip was postponed/canceled twice due to Covid and Viking made sure we did not lose a penny. We really enjoyed the ports and the excursions. Viking always provides one included excursion. We often sign up for additional excursions and usually find them of excellent quality. Our favorite excursion was to a fjord via a ...

Because of the world political situation the cruise itinerary had to be altered omitting St. Petersburg and Tallinn. But other delightful ports were substituted resulting in a wonderful experience. The meals were excellent in all of the venues. Cocktails in the Explorers' Lounge before dinner with entertainment by Zeus and views over the ship's bow was a pleasure. The entertainment in the ...
