"Most of the food was foam theme, we are not fans of that, and the food is usually set , the wine tasting is ok, but We drink only Natural wines, which were not offered.We have eaten there on other cruises and found it not to our liking because of the set menu...."Read More

We went for the world cruise 2023-2024 with Viking Star. We sailed with Viking in the past both Ocean and River cruise and had positive experience and decided for Viking world cruise. The experience was quite opposite. The good points were :the management team were trying to do their best to make passengers happy., considering the central office were making all the important operational ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 70s

This was my very first ocean cruise. I had specific requirements in my search for the right cruise. I wasn’t interested in a party atmosphere with loud disco music, I wanted to avoid children running around the ship, and I wasn’t interested in spending time with gambling or casinos. I wanted a cruise with diverse dining options in restaurants that didn’t require me to become best friends with a ...

We lived in the Panama Canal Zone in the 70's and we wanted to see changes & revisit memories. The canal part itself was great, partly because we went early to explore on our own, which we did at both ends. The transit was great. I guess due to transit times or restrictions, we were sad for our fellow passengers that they didn't have time for excursions on both ends. To see things on the ...

Viking gets stellar reviews, which is why I booked this. Perhaps an "off " cruise? Beyond disappointing. Let's be clear; Viking is, in no way, a luxury cruise line. First the good: the ship is lovely, the food is very good and the crew are wonderful, with the exception of Guest Services. There were so many passengers complaining on this trip, I imagine they felt themselves overworked. They ...

2-5 Cruises • Age 70s

Panama Canal ,our bucket list. Most of the shore excursions were interesting, The ruins in Belize, and seeing Costa Rica , Colon,& Roatan, were ok. ATV s in Cozemel are more our speed. Most of the sites were geared to people with limited mobility. Was hoping to see more religious sites and churches as most of Central America are Catholic.Also most of the guides were very knowledgeable. Would have ...

2-5 Cruises • Age 60s

We enjoyed every aspect of our experience on the Sky. Communication, food, enrichment, entertainment, cruise team, organization, room steward and service - all were very good. The activities offered were varied and inclusive - opportunities for those traveling alone, those in recovery, those of different religious faiths and lifestyles. The staff did a great job of organizing and disembarking ...

Going through the Panama Canal was bucket list item for me, and since we had a great experience on Viking several years ago (Barcelona to Rome) decided to book again. First all the pluses(and they are mostly pluses) Viking has top notch customer service, both pre boarding and on the ship. Incredibly friendly staff. Really nice touches like the covered patio area on the upper deck to shade ...

The wife and I just returned from an extremely enjoyable 10 days aboard Viking Sky, traveling from Ft. Lauderdale to Panama City, Panama. While this was our first ocean cruise in over 15 years, (our previous was on another cruise line), it got us very interested in doing this type of travel more frequently in the future. The crew and staff onboard our ship, to a person, were beyond friendly and ...

We chose this trip because of the opportunity to experience the Panama Canal. It was the highlight of the trip. This review will concentrate on the excursions - mostly because I found few reviews on Cruise Critic about this itinerary before I took it. The staff and service were excellent. The comments are about my personal reactions to the excursions. In general, the quality was high, but I ...

We had originally booked this as a Cuba cruise (until Trump put and end to that) but decided to stick with the booking after Viking offered some decent incentives. I love cruising having previously sailed with (Oceania x 2, Norwegian x 2, Celebrity x 2, Disney, Holland America, and Princess). We have sailed everything from the 4,000 passenger Norwegian Bliss to the 650 passenger Oceania Nautica, ...
