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 ...

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" ...

Having loved every Viking River Cruise we've ever been on, (and having been disappointed with other ocean cruise lines,) we decided to put Viking to the test. We could not be happier. Viking is a class act in every way! We have been on less expensive cruises, but by the time they nickel and dime you to death, it comes out about even. Viking gives you a free excursion at every ...

2-5 Cruises • Age 70s

We chose this cruise because it had ports of call in countries we have not yet been able to visit. Unfortunately, we were not able to visit Estonia, Russia and Helsinki. This did not deter us from having a great time at the ports we did visit. We would have liked to not have the two additional nights in Oslo as we did the pre-cruise in Oslo. However it did give us the opportunity to see the ...

Port Replacements for Russia, Estonia and Finland Were Mediocre

We had been looking forward to seeing St. Petersburg but understood why that stop had to be changed, of course, as well as Finland and Estonia. However the replacement stops were mostly unremarkable. We still enjoyed the trip due to the excellent staff who were always kind and friendly making each day a joy. The entertainment was awesome! And the food was fantastic. We also very much ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

My husband’s grandmother was Swedish and I wanted him to see how beautiful Stockholm is. The added ports of Bornholm and Mariehamn were a nice addition as I would not have picked those as places to go. We started in Bergen and ended in Stockholm. As we hit each successive port there was more and more sunshine. We almost exclusively did the included tours and I thought they were great! The one tour ...

10+ Cruises • Age 60s

This cruise started as a river cruise but it was canceled twice so we opted for an ocean cruise. We heard viking was a notch above the rest which turned out not to be true. The cruise started out of San Juan we paid to transfers to and from the airport and were expecting an agent to meet us at the airport, nobody was there and not we are outside the security zone of the airport had to walk around ...
