Viking Overpriced and Not Premium

Review for Viking Star to Transatlantic

My wife and I chose Viking because it runs smaller ships and after three years without cruising believed this to be a safer option following COVID. This was our first time on Viking after 30+ cruises with other cruise companies. It was probably the worst. We made the decision to sail from Bergen to Montreal and then a second cruise from Montreal to New York 26 days in all. We saw the best and ...

Interested in the destinations and historical background of the region. The ports were interesting, and the guides were knowledgeable and fun. Our guides in the Shetland Islands and Quebec City were outstanding. Wished we could have spent some more time in Iceland, as a one-day stay was less than optimal. Because of weather (Farrow Islands) and a problem with distilling fresh water due to low ...

The most relaxing cruise we've ever taken

We wanted to experience six uninterrupted days at sea to unwind and enjoy the food, the lectures, and the ambiance aboard ship. Viking didn't fail us - it was the best experience we've ever had cruising. We particularly enjoyed the fascinating lecturers with topics ranging from World War II Atlantic submarine warfare, to Antarctic explorers, to world-class ocean rowing; first-run movies each ...

We have sailed transatlantic six times, this was the best experience in many ways. The five lecturers kept us busy two or three times s day with history, ecology and sports talks. Athens crew was friendly, helpful, professional, informal, consistant. The food was excellent in all venues. There is no extra charge for the two specialty restaurants, The public spaces are comfortable with many ...

Service is Outstanding throughout the Ship

First Time Cruiser • Age 70s

We are incredulous about the service on this ship: friendly, attentitive, and conscientious. Each person we see greets us warmly and with authenticity. The waiters learn your names within a day or two and treat you like royalty. After five days of being at sea, there is no let up in the attention to detail and graciousness. The food is generally quite good; the sushi bar is excellent and ...

I chose this cruise because it left from Miami where I live. The ship is beautiful and is keep extremely clean in all areas. Service in all area were polite, pleasant and happy to help in any way needed. I was a single traveler so my cabin was quite comfortable. For two people I think the drawers are not adequate.Shower was exceptional hot water whenever needed.The Manfredi's restaurant was the ...

We choose this Viking Cruise (not river cruise) to see how Viking does compared to other cruise lines (particularly Regent, Oceania, Celebrity). Viking is getting (three years in a row) some very high marks in the "Cruising" industry. We thoroughly enjoyed our Viking experience but not necessariy "The Best"......... We loved not seeing the photography, casino, the art autions and liked the ...

Past good experiences and the newness of the ship contributed to our choice. The service is not 6 star and the food is not outstanding. Afternoon tea is well done. The excursions were adequate. The on board lectures were well presented and informative. Our cabin this time was the lowest category. On our first ocean cruise with Viking we had a penthouse category. The service was just ...

This was our first Viking cruise. We cruise about 5-6 weeks a year and usually cruise Celebrity but have also enjoyed Royal Caribbean. For a change of pace and because the reviews were good, we decided to give Viking Ocean a try. We booked the 14 night "In the Wake of Vikings" cruise from Bergen to Montreal. Well, let's just say we're not drinking the Viking Ocean Kool-Aid. We do not see the ...

Wanted to try a transatlantic cruise as an alternative to flying. And wanted to cruise on a smaller boat to avoid the long line-ups at embarkation and disembarkation. Although we were concerned that a smaller ship might experience a lot of movement in the open ocean in poor weather, the weather was relatively good so we don't really know if rough seas would have been a problem. There was a good ...
