The Viking Ocean Cruises do not have their act together

Review for Viking Star to Baltic Sea

6-10 Cruises • Age 70s

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 ...

A bait and switch cruise line?

We booked a cruise from Barcelona to Venice (Fusina). We travel independently, and planned four days in Barcelona before taking a taxi to the ship. A week before embarkation, we were told it would now take place in Tarragona (105 km away). Any transfer plans for independent travelers? Sorry, said Viking. You are on your own. Our 90 minute taxi to Tarragona cost $185 euros. A week after we got ...

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 ...

Mediterranean and Italian Sojourn

We chose this cruise because we wanted to return to Italy with a pre-extension in Tuscany. It cruised from Venice to Barcelona and had many wonderful shore excursions. The food and attention from the Viking staff was amazing. We also enjoyed the free spa experience using it whenever we could. The no extra cost specialty dining was very nice. We were able to eat at Manfredi’s, the Italian ...

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 ...

2-5 Cruises • Age 70s

We signed up and paid for this cruise over two years ago and then COVID interrupted life. We have always wanted to visit Scandinavia and late evening sunsets. Everything about the river and ocean cruises on Viking is without par. Service and amenities and crew are always up to the highest standards. On the other hand, we are extremely disappointed in Viking Air. They were very difficult ...

Review for Viking Jupiter to Baltic Sea

10+ Cruises • Age 60s

Chose this cruise because of our positive experience with Viking River Cruises and to explore new to us regions. We were expecting the dining to be good, but it exceeded that. We were especially surprised at how much we enjoyed the Chefs Table (ended up booking three times). We tended to eat at the ala carte venues for dinner and the casual options for breakfast and lunch. I am not a fan of ...

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 ...
