This was not a typical Vicing ocean cruise - it was the 30 day second leg of the round the world cruise, going from Valparaiso, Chile to Sidney, Australia. We chose it specifically to see Australia and New Zealand, ...

Amazing ship and crew

We chose this cruise for several reasons: the Viking reputation, the cruise itinerary and the mixture of excursions and sea days. We were not disappointed. We had a penthouse veranda cabin, which was roomy with ...

Review of the Viking Sun cruise from Santiago to Los Angeles.

The itinerary is what first attracted us to this cruise and decided last April to book it through 6 Star Cruises. We have previously done many cruises with Regent, Azamara, Oceania and Seabourn, all of which we have ...

All fun on the western coast

We chose this cruise to be away over Christmas and New Year and because we wanted to explore more of South America. It was nice to have four full weeks rather than rushing through two weeks. We arrived early in ...

Viking at its best!

We will only sail with Viking. The longer the cruise the more opportunities for things to happen beyond anyone's control. We had a couple of those happen (missed port to due weather) but Viking is well prepared to ...

Fabulous vacation

The Viking Sun is a beautiful ship with luxury amenities. Staff is very friendly and will strive to meet any requests. The food is very good (we did have some bad experiences at Chef’s Table) and menus are varied ...

As expected from our experiences with Viking River Cruises, this was five stars all the way, from transfers to and from the airport, to luggage handling, to greeting on the ship. We stayed in a deluxe veranda, ...

There are really two parts to this review. The first is about the awful virus that spread unchecked that ruined our trip. The second part is about what the ship is like if I don't factor in how sick so many of us ...

Viking gets it right.

Why did we choose this cruise? Honestly, it was a last minute decision based on a really good price offered by Viking. We have been on two River Cruises with Viking, and knew that Viking was 5 star all the way. ...
