First Time Cruisers

We were thinking of cruising for a while and very hesitant about small spaces and too many people, etc. Good friends highly recommended Viking Cruises, so we researched the line and liked what we found. We ...

Stunning ship but not much else to recommend it

We chose to travel on the Viking Sea (10 day cruise) from San Juan, Puerto Rico to San Juan, Puerto Rico, because we liked the look of the itinerary, and the fact that it has been voted the top cruise line for the ...

This West Indies Explorer cruise had weather issues.

We chose this cruise explicitly because there were no “at sea days”. We chose Viking because of stellar reviews with no casinos nor children. Being a very new boat, just 4 or 5 years old added to the allure. ...

Fantastic service from friendly staff on board the Viking Sea.

We chose the cruise to see the Amazon River, longest river in the world. The included shore excursions and tours were excellent. We knew what we were going to spend on the trip before we sailed. Afternoon tea on ...

Another outstanding Viking experience!

We chose this cruise based on the itinerary and our desire to get out of the Northeast in the late winter. It was also a plus to have a short flight to Florida and to stay in the same time zone. One of the things ...

First time Cruise

We had a group of 12 of us. Some were experienced cruisers and we were not. It was good to have someone with us. We did every free excursion each day. Most days we did 2. One bucket list day for me was the Americus ...

We'd done it before - take a sisters' cruise with Viking, and it was one of the most remarkable experiences we've ever enjoyed. We were nearly blinded with joy by the simple elegance of the ship, the beauty of the ...

Great Rest and Relaxation Trip plus Nature!

We chose this trip for a relaxing cruise. Many of the ports feature beach excursions but as we aren’t beach people, we were thrilled with the history we learned. Our room was, as usual, just right. Viking’s ...

Beautiful Ship, Relaxing, Comfortable Cruise

Like many, we'd done several Viking River cruises and wanted to try their ocean voyages. I was not disappointed. First, embarkation: We've taken ocean cruises on a couple of other lines, but the embarkation to ...

Overall, an excellent cruise. We stopped every day in a new port (except for cancellation of Dominica due to political unrest there, and back to St. Lucia for the day.) Staff were extremely friendly and helpful. ...
