Interesting itinerary and excursions

Seeing the Amazon River and particularly the Opera House in Manaus has been on our bucket list for some time. Being able to do it on a Viking Ocean Cruise made it the perfect fit. We have cruised more than 50 ...

You can always rely on Viking to provide a good cruise experience.

So, we love to snorkel and we wanted to see the Amazon and we like to do this in the company of friends from Australia, so we chose Viking, because we knew we would be well looked after and have a memorable ...

Nice....but not for us.

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 ...

Delightful

We chose this trip because it was a new ship and new line that we wanted to try. It was also a smaller ship which we prefer rather that those humungous "floating hotels" that we found so distressing. In addition ...

This was a lovely 3 week cruise thru the carribean down to the Amazon river, but,. Viking needs to make some improvements especially on the Amazon part. Several of their included tours were just plain boring. The ...

Viking Nails It Again

We've sailed on two other Viking ocean ships, so we expected to enjoy ourselves. We did. The route through Caribbean islands and up the Amazon was new territory for us. Because of air schedule we didn't have ...

I was praying for it to end.

When we saw the ad on PBS touting the elegant experience we should expect aboard a Viking cruise, we believed the hype and signed up for their cruise to the Caribbean and Amazon. The itinerary certainly sounded ...

A Bit Disappointing!

The Viking Sea is a lovely looking ship: nice décor, super clean and very friendly staff but the ship itself doesn't sail very smoothly and our cabin in the very aft vibrated & shock night after night. We chose ...

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 ...
