another fabulous meals with wonderful friends!
A day in Crete. We did the 4-wheeler/jeep excursion.  It didn't disappoint. Beautiful vistas, the fun stops at a family-run cantina along with a couple of other shopping stops. Exceptional Day!
On-board dining was fantastic at all the varied restaurants. All you can eat virtually all day. Make a reservation or just go to the all-you-can-eat buffet.
Two of the many fantastic artifacts found in the many museums you can visit during shore excursions with local guides.

A wonderful ocean crossing
"That decision was made much more quickly, but the Viking staff scrambled admirably to put new excursions in place, and we enjoyed the change.But staff morale seemed very good, and we enjoyed forming relationships with some of the entertainers, bar tenders, and guest lecturers...."Read More

Overall very enjoyable but we had a few little niggles . Despite the sailing being in December and ending only a week before Christmas day, the only decoration was a gingerbread village that appeared half way. Meanwhile we were seeing other ships in the fleet beautifully decorated on social media. Various items were unavailable, particularly the choice of sugar free soft drinks was Coke ...

Rather Disappointing

This was our second Viking Ocean (first was in 2019) , but we have been on Seabourn , Azamara and Regent, so at 900 guests , we consider this a "larger" ship. The guests were 90 % Americans , with only 36 Brits. Whilst the ship is impeccable, not a spot of dirt or rust anywhere , we were less happy with a couple of areas that are important for us, and felt these had deteriorated since ...

I have cruised with Viking before; my new boyfriend has been a Seabourn cruiser. We chose this repositioning cruise because of the good price and the itinerary. I was not sure what to expect in the mid-Atlantic in December, but we enjoyed temperatures in the high 70s, clear skies and smooth seas. We had a very relaxing time. My boyfriend found the food to be better than he had expected; I enjoyed ...

In the wake of the vikings, while dodging Hurricane Dorian

After a wonderful Viking river cruise during which we were impressed with Viking's handling of weather (low river waters) related issues and because my husband wanted to see Greenland, we opted for this ocean cruise, knowing full well that the North Atlantic can be a challenge any time of year, especially fall/winter. Dorian required us to leave Bergen a day early & bypass Shetlands & Faroes, ...

Numb, as in unbelievable, Numb as in over whelming, Numb as in booked another cruise with Viking for next year. We had seen the TV documentary "Mighty Ships" showcasing the "Viking Sky" and a week later were booked for our cruise on the "Sea", I had Viking do all our bookings for our transportation to Oslo, as well as our Oslo and Bergen extensions. We were not disappointed, as everything went ...

Room: Had Deluxe Veranda that, per Viking, was 270 sf. As soon as we opened the room door, it was a shock. I measured: 193sq not including the balcony. Storage: Three drawers in cabinet, one drawer in each night table - and the closet. Hardly enough. Communication: Abysmal. In the first three days (yes, three days) I had to go to Guest Services (GS) 15 times - I finally stopped counting. ...

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 port of Bergen as it was too late to do anything that day. Big seas means we also missed Shetland Islands and Faroe Islands. instead we made for Iceland and had 2 make up ports of ...

Interested in learning about how the Vikings got to North America and to see some of the sites that have been on the History Channel; such as, L'anse aux Meadows in Newfoundland. In Greenland, visited with a local family (with translator) to learn about their life. Also visited three sites in Iceland, Akureyri, Isafjordur, and Reykjavik, as well as Saguenay, Quebec and Quebec City, Quebec. In ...

Viking Cruise Trans-Atlantic September 2019 Our cruises are always chosen for their itinerary, but after that, of course, the cruise line is a major consideration. We came across the “In the Wake of the Vikings” cruise with Viking Ocean Cruises, a line new to us, back in early 2018, but we were not free at the time, so we expressed an interest with Viking for the 2019 sailing, through our local ...

Very Expensive TransAtlantic Repositioning Cruise with Bad Weather

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. (Although, we found out later that a 2nd Viking ship trailed this same itinerary by several days - so much for Viking's communications - more on that.) We did the 3-day pre-trip Iceland ...
