First Viking Ocean Cruise - meet every expectation

|

We wanted to try Viking Ocean and to see the St. Lawrence Seaway. We also did the pre-trip extension because we wanted to visit Toronto (to see friends) and Niagara Falls. Even with 900 passengers on board, the ...

Too many cutbacks to the onboard experience

We've been on 8 Viking cruises over the past 15 years. The 5 river cruises were truly excellent, as were the 2 ocean cruises (Mediterranean and Baltic) which we took in 2015 and 2016 when the ships were brand new. ...

Special Scandinavia

My husband really likes the Viking experience, and we liked the itinerary. Although I see that no opportunity is provided for negative comments, I will do so here. We were extremely disappointed to be kept "in ...

Vancouver to Tokyo

We are in our mid fifties, very active, and chose this 23 day cruise because of the itinerary. It is a repositioning cruise, with 9 sea days. I was a bit nervous that I'd be bored during the sea days. In fact, I ...

The best cruise we’ve been on so.. The entertainment was first rate especially the Viking Oaseas band and singers. We danced away the evening virtually every night. The specialty restaurants are included ...

Close travel, interesting ports, fall colors, enjoy seeing the USA, liked the historic ports, wanted a Canadian overview, we like the inclusive nature of the ship. It was nearly oversold and you could tell with ...

Seaboard Explorer Cruise

We chose this cruise because we wanted to visit places in Canada that were on the itinerary. Also, the short flight from Boston to Montreal was attractive. We have traveled with Viking before. We have gone on two ...

Ultimate in customer service

We had room service and a scrumptious breakfast on the days we had an early tour and it was no extra cost. We enjoyed high tea only once we need to take a longer tour with a day st sea so we can enjoy all the ...

Fabulous ship! Wonderful Cruise!

We've always wanted to cruise the St Lawrence Seaway and visit Montreal (again) and Quebec City. A last minute change to our itinerary included the Gaspe Peninsula - which was lovely. The three days at sea were very ...

Beautiful ship; wonderful service

My wife and I had never done an ocean cruise, but had done 2 river cruises with Viking, so we were curious to see how we thought they would compare. We chose the cruise we did, because, frankly, it wasn't exotic. ...

Very Positive Experience in the Canadian Maritime provinces and Northeastern US!

Chose this cruise to enjoy Fall color and to see ports of call that would be primarily populated with "locals" at this time of the year. There were a significant variety of optional tours which we took advantage of. ...

Some good, some bad

We had been on a Viking River cruise and wanted to try an ocean cruise with Viking. This was our 14th cruise, the first with Viking. Not impressed. Cons: the food, the food, the food. The food was always cold. ...

Great ship. Great crew. Average food.

The ship was wonderful. No casino (which is wasted on us anyway) so more room for bars and entertainment. The crew was great. Bartenders were a riot. Room (Penthouse Veranda) was perfect size and well laid out. With ...
