We chose this cruise because we didn't have to travel far, and we had a voucher from Viking due to a cancelled river cruise. This was our first Viking Ocean cruise , and we were pleasantly surprised. The ship was sleek, modern and spotless, the service second to none, the food was outstanding, and the entertainment top notch. With around 900 people, we never had to wait for an elevator, there ...

It should be mentioned right away that Viking clearly caters to a very small demographic of elderly clientele. My wife and I and the other couple that we travel with are healthy, active 60 year-olds and we felt that at least 90 percent of the other passengers were much older than us. We've taken previous Viking River cruises and, overall, really enjoyed them. Unfortunately, the things that we did ...

We booked this cruise for several reasons, but we did have a large credit from a covid canceled cruise and needed to use it soon. The itinerary was interesting and our daughter and grandkids live in Connecticut. We had sailed Viking once before and this cruise was great like the first one. Staff was friendly and hardworking. Ports were fun! Captain and crew had to work around our big ...

This is a 10 day cruise between New York City and Montreal. There are wonderful places to explore along the way with just a couple of very relaxing days at sea. From beautiful Quebec City, to Nova Scotia and Boston Massachusetts, the adventures never disappoint. The sail into New York Harbor is something everyone should experience, it is absolutely spectacular. All the crew and guests were ...

Having sailed with a number of cruise lines, my husband and I prefer the serenity, dignity, and quality offered by Viking. Two months prior to this September 2022 cruise we had taken a family cruise with Royal Caribbean, and the differences between RC and Viking were stark. The Royal Caribbean cruise, while fun for the younger crowd in our group, was loud, frenetic and boisterous, and the ...

We had room service and a scrumptious breakfast on the days we had an early tour and it was no extra cost. We enjoyed high tea only once we need to take a longer tour with a day st sea so we can enjoy all the benefits on the ship. We loved the Alaskan king crab legs and the specialty restaurants we loved the Nordic spa experience. They really thought of everything when they designed the ship there ...

This was our 1st Viking Ocean Cruise and we booked two more ocean cruises while sailing. Embarkation and Disembarkation went very smoothly. The Viking Star is a beautiful ship, with many areas for relaxation. Our tastefully decorated cabin was very spacious. The service was over the top. The crew definately went out of their way to make this a true cruising experience. We had no complains ...

Viking is still learning the ocean cruise business. Our Eastern Seaboard Explorer cruise was a perfect example. We wanted to take it because we wanted to see that part of North America, particularly in the fall. We had taken Viking River cruises in Europe and thought they were extremely well done. We don't do many ocean cruises because I don't like rough seas at all. I thought that because ...

We were on our Viking ocean cruise from 10/2 – 10/14 on the new Viking Star. That ended up being really superb. We flew to Montreal to pick up the ship. It went to Quebec, then Saguenay. Next we went to Charlottetown, the capitol of Prince Edward Island, and then Halifax, Nova Scotia. We’d been to Montreal and Quebec before, but not the rest. After leaving Canada we headed out of the Bay of ...

Almost every aspect of this trip from start to finish was fabulous. Our cabin was roomy and we chose a location at the very back of the ship so we had a greater viewing area from the patio, The cabin was roomy and the bathroom was a very pleasant surprise. It was a very luxurious size for a cruise ship. Our room attendants were delightful. They were so friendly and helpful and they always ...
