Viking and Alaska - Well Suited To Each Other

We have had four Viking cruises so far, with a fifth on the horizon. It’s an adult-level cruise and they treat their guests accordingly. The operation of the vessel was seamless - the passengers never had to worry ...

Use extreme caution when making reservations through Viking

This was our second Viking Cruise. Loved it the first time we cruised with Viking Sea; all went according to what we paid for and what we got. Our Penthouse Junior Suite (PJS 8007) was what we asked for and that ...

I also found not all passengers were treated the same. I think if you socialized with the crew you were treated better. If you spent time later in the evening with then and participated in their games, they greeted ...

A great Cruise of a Life Time.

All of the food was top notch. The only issue was the fact that the Chef's Table had a different menu each night. We do not eat DUCK so we had to cancel. There needs to be more of a selection at the Chef's ...
