Really Enjoyable. Madeira was surprisingly beautiful.

We chose this cruise because I had hand surgery recently and was not able to carry around suitcases. We thought an ocean cruise would allow us to have a great experience and not need to change rooms or locations, ...

This was a repositioning cruise that I wanted to take a friend on since he had never been on a cruise or to the Caribbean. What better than a Viking cruise! We were greeted at the airport by Viking staff before ...

We picked this cruise because of its itinerary - "In the Wake of the Vikings" - a northerly transatlantic crossing, and we had to book it a year and a half in advance because it's only offered once a year. ...

Great reviews? We were disappointed.

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 ...

We select cruises based on itinerary and pacing, ship size and cruise line reputation. Viking Ocean did not disappoint! A big selling point for us was that the "Barcelona, Baltic and Beyond" cruise allowed us to ...
