Round the horn! Now, that's exciting.

After loving Viking's Midnight Sun cruise through Norway's fjords to the Arctic Circle we decided to explore the other end of the world and around Cape Horn. This is a new dedicated cruise path for Viking beginning in December, 2019. We traveled from Santiago to Buenos Aires beginning late January, 2020. After reading some rather negative reviews here regarding ports and excursions, had to put ...

The ship was excellent, the cruise, not so much. The Viking ocean going ships are well designed and easy to navigate around. The amenities are nice, but don't expect a lot of flash. The 900 passenger ships rarely seems crowded. The on dining experience is generally above average. The entertainment is OK. The staff are uniformity excellent and well organized. Even the shore excursions worked and ...

Hadn’t been to this part of South America as there are many sea days and unpredictable weather. The weather was amazingly calm and we were able to stop at all ports. Seeing penguins in the Falklands was the highlight as was the Falklands Museum. The drivers, the museum volunteers, the clerks at the information store were so friendly and welcoming. Also enjoyed Ushuaia and the catamaran ...

We chose the cruise because it took us to unfamiliar territory and had such elements of excitement about it. Imagine, to actually sail the Straits of Magellan! Our extra time in Valparaiso was well spent--we've never seen such amazing murals (or ridden such interesting outdoor escalators). Our cabin was fine--the roomy shower much appreciated. The food was good everywhere. We enjoyed both ...

Other reviews have quite adequately covered the cruise portion of South America & the Chilean Fjords on Viking Jupiter. My only comment would be to support the exceptional ratings given and echo the compliments given to the crew for their performance. I would add that on our cruise, we were not able to go ashore in the Falkland Islands nor were we able to go ashore on Magdalena Island (from ...

Had booked this cruise as a surprise for my husband's 60th birthday although he had to wait about 18 months till he recieved it, it was well worth the wait. We really looked forward to visiting the Falklands and the Chilean Fijords. Travel arrangements were fine, we had a long time to wait for our connecting flight but that was our choice as the original time given was less than an hour ...

I have cruised with Carnival, Royal Carribean, Princess, and Holland. This was my first Viking cruise. Yes, it costs a bit more, but for 60-year old me, this is the way to cruise! Here are some differences I noted: • OLD passengers…..really old • Trivia winner gets ABSOLUTELY NOTHING……not a plastic boat or anything • No formal night • No extra cost for the special ...

This was the first Viking ocean and I wanted to see penquins and my husband wanted to go around Cape Horn in 30 foot seas. We did get around Cape Horn but not in 30 foot seas. The Viking Jupiter is a beautiful ship. Only 950 people and decor was nice. Our room was what I expected and housekeeping kept it clean. The food was a good and there was a nice variety of food from the World ...

We chose this cruise because first it is an area of the world we wanted to see and second because we have cruised with Viking before and really enjoyed the experience. We started with a pre-extension to Patagonia. We visited both Terra del Paine and Los Glaciares National Parks. Both were beyond beautiful. After the Patagonia pre-extension we boarded the ship in Buenos Aires. We had ...

We chose it for celebrating our fiftieth wedding anniversary. We had wanted to sail around South America and when we saw that the Viking Jupiter (on which we had sailed around the British Isles this past summer) was sailing that itinerary, we chose this cruise. We enjoyed having the same head waiter in the Dining room that we had had this past summer. Also, we very much liked the design of ...
