I choose this cruise because Viking is my favorite cruise line and I wanted to cruise but not leave the United States. This cruise met my criteria. Viking cabins are very comfortable and the people that care for them are top notch. Food which is an important part of cruising is always good, sometimes exceptional. I had one unfortunate experience where I had ordered Eggs Benedict in the ...

We have taken several Viking Cruises, both river and ocean. For this trip we booked one of the explorer suites, quite pricey and our best friends booked another of the explorer suites. Check in was awful as the staff could not make the card processor work despite several managers trying to help. No one to explain COVID instructions prior to boarding. We were told the explorer suites were available ...

While we're pleased to hear your stateroom suite was an enjoyable aspect of your trip, Guildmoney, it's regrettable to hear aspects of your dining experience and shore excursions fell below...

My spouse and I chose the Viking Cruises “Pacific Coast Explorer” itinerary as our first sailing after the pandemic eased. Our last cruise in 2019 had been a Viking cruise to Norway, and we had been more than impressed with the ship (the Star), and the staff, food, ports, and onboard entertainment, and amenities. So we did not hesitate to book another Viking vacation, and having Viking handle ...

We choose this itinerary because we desperately wanted to go on a cruise, but we wanted to avoid the stress of cruising in Europe with the ever present fear of being quarantined. For us, on this cruise, the ship was the destination, and we were not at all disappointed. The ship was beautiful, the crew were all amazing, and our cabin was perfect. The food that we had onboard was all wonderful, ...

After waiting through the Covid delays, we were finally able to get back on Viking. We had two trips canceled due to pandemic. It was nice to start with a basically “American “ itinerary. Therefore not having to deal with various countries’ requirements. Weather issues caused us to miss two ports. Totally understandable. It’s a risk of cruising. Impressed that we had quality ...

Overall it was a good time, but I have to tell you, the food was a major disappointment. The food was presented very well, and looked good to the eye, but did not taste that great. Pancakes and waffles were cold and stale, and the other food was not seasoned very well. I am not sure they used butter in anything. The best food we had on the journey was on the shore excursions. The Ship was ...

My wife and I both love the South Pacific. When we saw this cruise on Viking's website we cancelled a cruise we had booked on another cruise line and immediately called Viking. At the time we booked, this cruise was supposed to go to Hawaii as well as the South Pacific. However the Hawaii portion ended up being cancelled due to Covid restrictions in the Hawaiian Islands. Viking notified us and ...

Polynesia was a bucket list destination for me and my wife and we love Viking. This cruise was wonderful. We especially enjoyed the extra time we were able to spend on Tahiti and Bora Bora. The excursions were all very good and informative. The speakers that Viking had onboard for us kept us well informed and entertained on this longer cruise. In fact there were so many choices we were busy ...

We are in our mid fifties, very active, and chose this 23 day cruise because of the itinerary. It is a repositioning cruise, with 9 sea days. I was a bit nervous that I'd be bored during the sea days. In fact, I wish we'd had more of them! The ship is beautiful. There are relaxing places to hide away, yet plenty of activities if you wish to be social. Make sure to do your research about ...

The best cruise we’ve been on so.. The entertainment was first rate especially the Viking Oaseas band and singers. We danced away the evening virtually every night. The specialty restaurants are included without extra charge. The Chefs Table had great local cuisine with a menu change every three days. The new observation deck included some interesting shows, our favorite was the Artic sky. ...
