Viking Air and Viking Star accounting made for a bad ending
"We chose the Atlantic crossing to have ample time at sea to relax, and a few nice ports. I will focus mostly on some things I hope will be helpful for future cruisers. We agree with most other reviewers that..."Read More

I chose this cruise because it left from Miami where I live. The ship is beautiful and is keep extremely clean in all areas. Service in all area were polite, pleasant and happy to help in any way needed. I was a single traveler so my cabin was quite comfortable. For two people I think the drawers are not adequate.Shower was exceptional hot water whenever needed.The Manfredi's restaurant was the ...

We have sailed transatlantic six times, this was the best experience in many ways. The five lecturers kept us busy two or three times s day with history, ecology and sports talks. Athens crew was friendly, helpful, professional, informal, consistant. The food was excellent in all venues. There is no extra charge for the two specialty restaurants, The public spaces are comfortable with many ...

We are incredulous about the service on this ship: friendly, attentitive, and conscientious. Each person we see greets us warmly and with authenticity. The waiters learn your names within a day or two and treat you like royalty. After five days of being at sea, there is no let up in the attention to detail and graciousness. The food is generally quite good; the sushi bar is excellent and ...

Past good experiences and the newness of the ship contributed to our choice. The service is not 6 star and the food is not outstanding. Afternoon tea is well done. The excursions were adequate. The on board lectures were well presented and informative. Our cabin this time was the lowest category. On our first ocean cruise with Viking we had a penthouse category. The service was just ...

This was our first Viking cruise. We cruise about 5-6 weeks a year and usually cruise Celebrity but have also enjoyed Royal Caribbean. For a change of pace and because the reviews were good, we decided to give Viking Ocean a try. We booked the 14 night "In the Wake of Vikings" cruise from Bergen to Montreal. Well, let's just say we're not drinking the Viking Ocean Kool-Aid. We do not see the ...

We choose this Viking Cruise (not river cruise) to see how Viking does compared to other cruise lines (particularly Regent, Oceania, Celebrity). Viking is getting (three years in a row) some very high marks in the "Cruising" industry. We thoroughly enjoyed our Viking experience but not necessariy "The Best"......... We loved not seeing the photography, casino, the art autions and liked the ...

Attractive pricing, wanted to try Viking and wanted to do an Atlantic Crossing. Viking ship size is ideal at around 930. Ship common areas are clean, very inviting and attractive. Some of the best in the industry. B Over ship accommodations are great and would highly recommend. Beer and wine offering at lunch and dinner are very nice and an added attractions over non all inclusive cruises. ...

I wanted to be able to say that I crossed the Atlantic by boat. We took the Grand European River Cruise with Viking in 2014 and we knew this cruise would also be very good. All cabins had a veranda, the cabin design and service was excellent. Entertainment during the cruise was very good, the daily lectures and evening shows were interesting and enjoyable. Dining was very good and the menu ...

To be honest we took this cruise because there were not as many port visits, and so we could relax more on the ship, having cruise with Viking before, we know that the service on the ship is always excellent. Attend the lectures, although not all were to our taste, but the ones that where, we really enjoyed. Plus the activities were really good and kept us very interested. especially the shows ...

Itinerary looked very intriguing to us, plus we received mail offer for 2-for-1 prices and discounted airfare. Highlights include the city tour of Bergen, free time to wander around Bergen (especially funicular to top of the mountain), Reykjavik and swimming in the Blue Lagoon, hiking around L'Anse Aux Meadows in Newfoundland, and sightseeing in Quebec City. Lowlights were sailing through ...
