Viking Ocean Baltic Sea Cruise Reviews

Vigeland Park in Oslo, Norway
Picture of fjord in Flam, Norway
This was taken on the ship at sunset in the bar on the top deck
We thought this so clever and unusual just like all the other designs and thoughtfulness of the decor

The Viking Ocean Cruises do not have their act together

Review for Viking Star to Baltic Sea

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 ...

Even with COVID and itinerary changes, it was great.

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" ...

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 ...

Initially we booked a Viking Rhine river cruise for 2020 with some other friends and naturally was canceled due to the Global pandemic. We rebooked for the spring of 2021 same cruise with Viking, yup that too was canceled. So my wife and I decided to switch to a Viking Ocean cruise for December 2021 down to South America. This was a Christmas cruise on the Jupiter however in talking with some ...

The ship and shipboard experience was outstanding. The ports were a little disappointing - we were not able to make the sop in Denmark due to weather but I expected more of the scenery we got on our last port (Flam)

I went with a friend and this was her pick. I had been to Oslo in the past but had not spent anytime around the Fjords. I know the world is still coping with Covid but we did have a bit of a hassle with the covid test required before the sailing. We had spent 3 days in Amsterdam so then had to find a place to get the test, at our expense, when it seems like the Viking labs could have done that ...

The cruise was quite good. The ship was in incredibly good shape, the tour directors Edward and Max were excellent. great guided tours on land.Excellent lectures by astronomer Dr Brad Hughes and historian Dr. Bazin. The fjord cruise to Flam was breathtaking. The food was excellent and the crew was incredibly polite and friendly. On our last day, Thursday we interpreted from the brochures that we ...

We had not intended to go on a sea cruise but the offer earlier this year was too good to refuse and we are so glad we said yes. Viking came up to all the superb standards that we have experienced on our river cruises and we loved every moment. We cannot fault anything from the restaurant service, to the bar service, to the quality of our stateroom, to the excellence of the entertainment, to the ...

My first Viking cruise and the most memorable one I have ever taken, due to the personnel—every crewmember I came into contact with was so welcoming and helpful at all times.

I chose this cruise because of the itinerary. Norwegian fjords were always on my list of world wonders to see, but the cruise became more about the people who made it such a delight and the first of many Viking cruises I plan to take. I cannot say enough about the warmth and welcoming atmosphere which greeted us each day as we went about the ship and shore excursions—I looked forward to every ...

This is my first time on any line that wasn't one of the "big 3" and I will never go back! From the no-children, no-pressure, no-casino on-board experience, to the included tours, to the airport and hotel transfers, to the food, to the staff, to the verandas, to the scenery absolutely every detail was spectacular. The spa was an excellent amenity and is included for all (massages were reasonably ...

2-5 Cruises • Age 60s

We chose this cruise because we wanted to see the natural beauty of Norway. While we saw some of it, the tours were mediocre at best, the cultural experiences and food were lacking and contrived, and most importantly, expectations were managed so poorly that it was a big problem any time you needed information. From Covid testing to basic information on luggage, transfers, ...
