Delighted with our first Viking Ocean cruise!

With over 300 sea days on Holland America, we felt it was time for a change, and wanted to try out Viking Ocean. We could not have been more pleased with the overall experience. Check-in was swift and easy, with ...

Great Transatlantic Crossing

We chose this as we wanted to try Viking Ocean and like the shorter length from Lisbon. We also never had done a holiday cruise and Viking did it right. The food, entertainment, bars and lectures were top notch. We ...

I would go again

The dinning room service was spotty. I think they got a lot of new people for this sailing. Improperly served courses, missing courses. But there was also impecably trained staff too in the dining room. Other than ...

Transatlantic tough on small ship

The restaurant service was slow. Over 2 hours for dinner is SLOW. The World Café food was better than the sit down restaurant. Ship's stabilization system was not up to a wavy transatlantic crossing. The ...

Mid-Atlantic Crossing departing Lisbon on 16 December 2018

This was the sixth cruise my wife and I have taken with Viking--four river cruises and, now, two ocean cruises. We purchased the pre-cruise extension in Lisbon because we wanted to see it on the trip. Overall, the ...

Great cruise with some “glitches”

We enjoy cruising with Viking. They are first class and do not “nickel and dime” you. The service is excellent and the crew is very good. Everyone working on the ship is friendly and says hello with a smile. ...

We have done several river cruises with Viking and were curious about Viking Ocean. The price was good and had free air. We then continue to Cuba on a back to back for a total of 18 days. We found the staff ...

Superb lectures & superb food = superb mid-Atlantic crossing

We've heard so much about Viking Ocean that we wanted to give it a try. The price was right as was the itinerary: Lisbon to Miami. The pre-cruise stay was at a hotel in the heart of the downtown area, thus, far ...
