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 ...

Expected more from Viking

I chose this cruise because I wanted a smaller ship. The ship was very nice, but the main pool only had the roof partially open so there was no breeze making it unbearable hot. The entertainment in the evenings ...

Very disappointing cruise

After many years of cruising, primarily on luxury cruise lines, we decided to try the very highly publicized Viking Ocean Cruises. We were anticipating a big anniversary, so opted for the Explorer Suite, one ...

embarking was quick and easy. once we were on the ship at 3.30pm we were advised that the ship would be leaving that night instead of the original plan of the next evening due to weather which meant we missed the ...

Not really a luxury cruise, food & service were average

This cruise company reminded me of driving a car but only getting to third gear. It could have been fantastic but there were some terrible instances of service and food. For instance, I sat next to pool on Sea day ...

We choose this cruise because we loved our Viking river cruise on the Danube the previous year and also because I've always wanted to explore the Amazon river and rain forest since I was young. We have sailed on RCL ...

Disappointed, since the experience did not come up to the hype.

A year ago, when we made our reservations for this cruise which left from San Juan, Puerto Rico, we had no idea that the island would be devastated by hurricane Maria. In recognition of the fact that our planned ...

I had good friends who have traveled with Viking river cruises and spoke highly of them. They booked this and I tagged along. Apparently all the ships have the same configuration so once you know your way around, ...

Viking needs to get their act together before expanding - disappointing

Chosen for both the itinerary as well as Viking reputation and reviews, this ‘christening cruise’ for Viking to figure out the Amazon itinerary was, frankly, poor. I’ll carry on with the review but note, up ...
