We chose this trip as a replacement for a Viking river trip through Russia that was cancelled. We were extremely pleased with the quality of the facilities and the amazing service. The variety and quality of the food was outstanding. The excursions were very educational and interesting. We met some friends who we hope will become lifetime friends. All-in-all we were well satisfied with our trip ...

My husband and I have wanted to go thru the Panama Canal for quite a few years now. This cruise happened to sail during our 45th Anniversary, so we jumped on it. From the moment we entered the ship until we left, we felt "special"(and it had nothing to do with what we were celebrating as they didn't know). The entire crew was always warm, smiling and helpful. The towns/countries we visited ...

Visiting the Panama Canal was on my bucket list. Everything about the 11 days was an experience. The food at all of the venues I visited was superb. The chefs always presented such delicious fare; everything from shrimp, lamb, crab, burgers, The entertainment was varied and delightful. I attended all 3 different performances of the singers, who were excellent. The Viking band was talented, as ...

Great ship, great service, great rooms, great ports of call! This cruise had it all. First the ship is a perfect size, not too big not to small. Had all the facilities we needed (pool space, walking track, great spa, great entertainment, EXCELLENT rooms... Every room had a balcony! Had none of the things we didn't want (casinos, children, smoking, art sales), and the best thing is Viking does ...

We chose Viking based on ship size and destination. The Viking Star was beautifully appointed and the cruise staff extremely helpful and professional. We enjoyed every moment on board - every communal deck offered wonderful views, which we took full advantage of. It was nice to have the ability to go to a quiet place and read a book or enjoy coffee and pastries or be amongst a group of people to ...

We wanted to go to the panama canal and we chose Viking because of the size of the ship (930 passengers) and no children. After a rocky start with a name screwup we were able to correct the problem on board the ship. i had a heel problem and every day 2x a day our room stewards brought ice paks for me. The food onboard was magnificent with everything labeled what it was and if it had meat ...

Never been to Panama Canal. This one looked good. However, ship was supposed to get underway at 5PM, but did not get underway 'till 9PM. Made for a shortened time at the first port of call. One of the ports was cancelled. Not enough free time at many of the excursions for shopping. Ship had to do a detour to get a guest medical help and that put us way behind the next port of call and only ...

This was our 15th cruise, on 6th different brand. The last 4 on Viking, including a Viking River cruise. We love the personal touch that Viking gives their guest, we are not just another customer attitude. Ships are a little smaller which allows them to get into a 'working port'. They don't require a large cruise port terminal, so sometimes they will dock at a more private port where there are ...

I chose this cruise because i wanted to go all the way through the cannel. I had been to the lake and turned around 4 years ago with another cruise line. I received an offer in the mail that I just couldn't refuse. I was looking for a cruise at the time, and this fit the bill. The welcome at the airport was a relief Viking people were right there to recieve us. They saw to it that we were on ...

The lectures on the Panama Canal were wonderful and the entertainment spectacular. Going through the canal was a once in a lifetime adventure. We also enjoyed the shows in the planetarium and the nightly music in the showroom as well as the open areas. The staff was very attentive and the food was marvelous. Even though it was during the aftermath of the pandemic and restrictions were ...
