We had sailed on Viking Ocean on earlier occasions (Baltic and Caribbean) and knew that Viking had created a great cruise product with these ocean-going ships. So we chose the Northern Lights cruise so we could ...

Really Enjoyable. Madeira was surprisingly beautiful.

We chose this cruise because I had hand surgery recently and was not able to carry around suitcases. We thought an ocean cruise would allow us to have a great experience and not need to change rooms or locations, ...

Very Expensive TransAtlantic Repositioning Cruise with Bad Weather

We picked this cruise because of its itinerary - "In the Wake of the Vikings" - a northerly transatlantic crossing, and we had to book it a year and a half in advance because it's only offered once a year. ...
