Great crew, ship and very respectable food

The crew at all levels where charming and professional and made us feel genuinely valued. Cabin, ship layout and facilities were, for us, an ideal balance as were the passenger numbers. Food, although not of Michelin standards was in our view, more enjoyable and the options satisfactory. The negatives are minor in the context of the cruise but could easily be corrected:- Guests repeatedly felt ...

First Time Cruiser

Age 70s

This cruise was in celebration of my wife's 75th birthday. While we took the Viking Grand European River Boat Cruise, this was our very first ocean cruise. We did not know what to expect, but were pleasantly surprised by the experience. Having nothing to compare with, we were impressed by the size of the ship...900 passengers with lots of amenities and excellent service. The food quality and ...

Age 70s

Ever since I studied South America in the 7th Grade, I have wanted to visit this continent, and especially Chile and Santiago. So we finally went! the Viking "Jupiter" was a beautiful, new ship, and the Planetarium on the upper deck made it especially interesting, as did the two NASA scientist/astronaut who gave enrichment talks. My husband and I spent a few days on our own prior to the ...

What a marvelous way to see a remote part of the world! The small towns (Puerto Montt, Punta Arenas, Ushuaia, Falkland Islands, and Puerto Madryn) were charming and really gave us a good view of what it's like to live out of the main towns. I went Horseback riding in the Chilean Rainforest, Hiking in Patagonia, and got to see penguins in the Falklands! All this while enjoying great food, ...

Viking Jupiter was a beautiful ship. Exquisite in every detail of the ship. Our cabin was excellent. We received an upgrade however would still have preferred our original booked cabin. Our cabin attendants were excellent. Very attentive and gracious at all times. Took care of us perfectly. Dining in World Cafe most meals and days was good however the dining room attendants did not seem quite ...

GENERALLY GOOD BUT GETS A TAD LONG

Booked this trip to see and navigate Cape Horn. Stopping at the Falklands was an added bonus and the best part of the trip. Embarkation experience was somewhat stressful. Clearing immigration in Buenos Aires took about two hours (not Viking's responsibility though) due to long lines. After that, someone had picked up my wife's suitcase by mistake. Fortunately it was another Viking cruiser and ...

As only our second cruise, South America wasn't high on our "must see" list. But we were invited to go with lifelong friends and we're glad we did. We were very impressed with the outstanding Viking service and dining experiences, as well as the ship itself and its many amenities. We had heard stories of rough seas, but Jupiter handled everything with amazing stability. I am prone to motion ...

Not as great as I expected, especially for nature

Age 70s

We looked forward to visiting countries in South America, places we hadn't been, and especially seeing natural places and animals there. Mostly, I was disappointed. We saw little of either. Penguins could only be seen from a distance in the Falklands, as wasted stop in my opinion. We did get to see many penguins on the extra excursion in Puerto Madryn after a 2.5 hour bus ride; it was worth it. ...

The Jupiter is a beautiful ship, and this was for us a different and interesting itinerary. For the most part, we were very happy with everything. Viking went over and aboard in the embarkation and disembarkation days for us because we had arranged air and transfers through them (we were taken to breakfast en route to the ship and the last day given an extra tour and hotel ballroom to hang out ...

Love Viking but South America lacks high quality port visits like Europe

On the positive side, the Viking Ocean ship was great and a nice size, only about 800 passengers. But it had high quality entertainment, great enrichment lectures, a great fitness area, and super public spaces. The food, like the river cruises, was great, maybe even better than the Viking Long Ship in Europe. Service in all areas was superb, especially guest services, which I used a lot to get ...
