Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Nov 2019
  • Destination: Asia

We chose Viking Ocean Cruise for this trip because we previously cruised with them and trusted we would receive the same amazing cruise experience. Below is a summary of our overall experience:

Ship and cabin: 5 stars! Beautiful ship and cabin. Our only complaint was having to endure the smoke at the Word Cafe Restaurant on our entire 2- weeks trip due to broken ventilation fans.

Service: Five stars! Everything was perfect!

Staff: Five stars! Friendly, respectful, professional.

Entertainment: Excellent TV entertainment choices. We did not attend any of the live entertainment because we were always leaving early in the morning for our excursions.

Ports and Excursions: 3 stars. Other than Hong Kong, the remaining ports were often industrial ports and so far away from the city/towns. That said, we spent a lot of hours in buses going to towns/excursion destinations. Also, excursions not worth the cost. We don’t know if vendors were charging Viking too much or the other way around. It’s important to note that the excursion staff were always friendly, respectful and very professional.

Dining: 41/2 stars for specialty restaurant and Main dining room.. 4 stars at World Cafe. This buffet restaurant often served greasy and little variety for breakfast food. Dinners we’re much better selections and always had king crab legs and beautiful large shrimps. The pizza and soup stations were excellent!.
