Do not cruise with Viking Ocean unless you like bus tours.
"We just completed a Mediterranean sailing on the Viking Sea, one of Viking Ocean’s five ships. This was our first (and last) time sailing with Viking Ocean. We are seasoned cruisers (more than 40 cruises and..."Read More

We enjoyed a smaller ship with less passengers and better yet no kids running around. We could always find a quiet corner to read or to relax. There was plenty of food. This was my first cruise experience but my partner had been on more. I was impressed by the high level of service and the comfort in all areas of the ship. However, there are several issues that we came across. The electrical ...

Very Expensive TransAtlantic Repositioning Cruise with Bad Weather

Review for Viking Sea to Transatlantic

We picked this cruise because of its itinerary - "In the Wake of the Vikings" - a northerly transatlantic crossing, and we had to book it a year and a half in advance because it's only offered once a year. (Although, we found out later that a 2nd Viking ship trailed this same itinerary by several days - so much for Viking's communications - more on that.) We did the 3-day pre-trip Iceland ...

Nice ship but poor land excursions

We chose the cruse base on a recommendation from a friend. The Ship was nice but I felt I was at a retirement home. Made more connections with the crew them shipmates. Everyone seemed to be on Valium. Land excursions were pretty much getting off the ship and on to a bus. We did not get any real insight into the islands except the first walking tour. If you go to another country you want ...

My wife and I have cruised many times in the past. we usually cruise with some friends who decided that we all should cruise the Baltic for our annual cruise in 2019. They chose Viking Ocean cruises, due in no small part to the excellent reputation of which they had read and the fact that what could be better than to take a Scandinavian ship to cruise the Baltic. At the outset, we were ...

We wanted to sail the Amazon River and enjoy the view from our balcony (see cabin review). The balcony was so disappointing. Food: The food is excellent. Our favorites were The Restaurant and Manfredi's. Chef's Table is fine if you like the fixed menu for that night. The included wine with lunch and dinner was another disappointment. There's one choice each day, red or white. You don't ...

When we saw the ad on PBS touting the elegant experience we should expect aboard a Viking cruise, we believed the hype and signed up for their cruise to the Caribbean and Amazon. The itinerary certainly sounded interesting and we were excited. Having now had it, I can say that this Viking experience was barely average, especially when compared with other cruise lines in the same price point. ...

We are in our late 60s. Australians. We had long heard of the wonders of the Amazon and the beauty of the Caribbean and this cruise took in both those destinations. We were so disappointed. The ship itself is good. Very well appointed, in excellent condition, lovely cabins and nicely decorated. 900 people is not huge and our cruise was child free. The passengers were 95% middle America. We have ...

Viking Caribbean Cruise Disappointing

We did two Viking river cruises and we were very pleased with the entire experience and especially the quality of the tours and the knowledge and deportment of the tour guides. We have also taken a number of Caribbean cruises with other cruise lines. The Viking ports of call were second rate and the tours were very disappointing. We attribute much of this to the fact that Viking is new to the ...

This was cruise # 3 with Viking, we are contemplating on cancelling our next cruise. On board entertainment was the same on all three cruises, very boring. We were told by the cruise director ( he joined the cruise 10 days after living Barcellona) they were contemplating changing talent agency, to late for us. The restaurant wait staff reached the point of being a nuisance ( ...
