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 ...

Cruising on the Amazon at Christmas

My husband and I wanted to see the Amazon and believed that this Viking cruise would provide us with that opportunity. We booked late last fall and as we only had a choice of four cabins, we ended up selecting a ...

Just good, not great

Unfortunately, Viking changed our paid excursion to a time that conflicted with our included excursion and didn't notify us. We found out on our own and needed to visit guest services to correct Vikings error ...

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 ...

Disappointing

We chose this cruise because we thought it would be an upgrade from Princess and Celebrity. Over 25 cruises on 10 different lines. This had the worst mattress and the best bathroom. Your included excursion is ...

Cruise up the Amazon

Chose this cruise primarily to see the Amazon River in Brazil, bucket list, if you will. Had a good experience on a Viking river cruise and looked forward to similar amenities and an older, mature passenger group. ...

Not so Amazing Amazon

We chose this cruise due to the itinerary, season and because we love Viking Ocean and River Cruises. Unfortunately, this particular cruise did not meet our expectations. This was a first time for Viking in the ...

Beautiful ship but Viking management does not have crisis management protocols

We are avid users of Grand Circle for both river cruises and land tours. We just thought that A: it would be nice to see Venice, B. It was a Christmas trip. C. We wanted to try a different cruise company. ...

Too New--Who Knew

New ship. Long history of success with River Cruises. Not so much with ocean cruising. Ship rocked a lot on open ocean; enough to wake us and make walking difficult. Cabin was minimalistic but room for hanging ...

Ship beautiful but Amazon boring and dirty

The Amazon always sounded so exotic to me and when I saw that Viking was doing a 21 day Caribbean to the Amazon it was a must try. Must try because we were on the Viking Sea in Norway July 2017 and were having a ...

Disappointing locations/service

Our third Viking cruise. The ship is their standard format which is very stylish though as this is one of oldest it is showing signs of some wear. The food is good except in Chefs Table. Entertainment low key but ...

Quebec and North Eastern USA

Viking ships were known to us. We chose the Eastern Seaboard cruise because this is an area we were not familiar with. The standard of onboard living was excellent. The cabin appeared spotlessly clean and the dining ...
