More rewarding than I even imagined

I chose this cruise for several reasons: I wanted a transatlantic cruise, as I love the ocean and my father had been in the Navy in WWII; because of the reputation of Viking as geared toward thinking and reflective ...

First time on Viking, but already booked on the Jupiter for March 15, 2020

We chose a 2-week trans-Atlantic repositioning cruise on the Viking Sea largely based on positive reviews from various sources. Although, none of our friends had cruised with Viking so we had no direct testimony. ...

Great ship board experience

We had a wonderful Viking River Cruise on the Danube and were curious about their ocean cruises. In particular, the Viking River service and logistics were outstanding. The food was fine but not outstanding. The ...

Giving it "your all" takes on new meaning with Viking

A Mediterranean ocean cruise- what could be better than that? Well, okay, perhap a Mediterranean cruise in the spring as opposed to the beginning of December - but weather be damned, Viking handled its part of the ...

Three Continents and a Big Ocean

Friends invited us to join them on this cruise. We had cruised before, but never on Viking. It was by far the best, but also the most expensive. There was value for the price. The cruise manager and the entire crew ...

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, ...

Lovely Cruise

We wanted to see Spain and Portugal. This Cruise fit the bill. We don’t especially like big ocean cruises, so we liked the smaller ship idea. I can’t really fault the ship, but since we have only been on one ...
