First and last Viking Cruise! (15 days to Bermuda and Caribbean)
"First of all, let me start by saying that my sister and I have been cruising for 20+ years and in all those years this is the worst cruise we have ever been on. We booked this a month before sailing with vouchers..."Read More

We had never cruised with Viking before but seeing photos of their new Ocean ships, we fell in love with the aesthetic and the designs of the ships. First impressions on board, the staff were so friendly and helpful, immediately had a glass of wine in hand and we were off to a great trip. We were on the 8th floor in a deluxe Veranda Cabin. First time having a balcony on a cruise and loved it. ...

After sailing on both an ocean and river cruise - loving them both - we decided to take this one! The ship left from Brooklyn NY so we were only a cab ride away which made it very easy the day of the cruise.....it was raining when we got there, it was raining when the ship left and then it got worse! Holy Moly! a very bad storm that was handled by captain and crew admirably....Because of it our ...

My wife and I had never done an ocean cruise, but had done 2 river cruises with Viking, so we were curious to see how we thought they would compare. We chose the cruise we did, because, frankly, it wasn't exotic. We started in NYC and ended up in Montreal, so it was sort of familiar territory, although we got to see more of Canada than I had seen before. Per usual, the most trying part of the ...

We chose this cruise because we wanted to try Viking and they had a great price with free airfare. We didn't get to go to Bermuda because of a storm. The storm caused extreme rocking of the ship which made the first two days not much fun. Because we weren't able to go to Bermuda, we were on the ship from Sunday until Friday when we made our first port. The cruise was relaxing but there wasn't ...

We chose this cruise around the Caribbean sea because it matched up with our wedding date/time off for a honeymoon. We had a nice time, even though we were the youngest on the cruise by about 40 years. We did not take our teenage daughter, even if we had wanted to because on the ocean cruises your child must be over the age of 18. The food was top notch, impeccable. The quality and the ...

We chose this cruise as an introduction to Viking as a cruise provider. We were delighted and would recommend Viking (we already have) to anyone as a cruise line, The ship is beautifully designed with many areas where you can spend some quiet time and well as others meant for activities and socializing (your choice). We also chose this trip because the ship holds a smaller number of ...

We picked this cruise because of the ports of call. We left NY Harbor on a Sunday during a Northeaster. .Many people were seasick but the crew did a great job helping everyone. We missed one port of call due to the storm. However, before we ended the trip we were informed by email that Viking have us a credit to use on another trip. I have been on other ships (not Viking) and had problems that ...

This ship has a surprising spaciousness for a smaller ship, and it took me almost a week to figure out why: every cabin is an exterior room with balcony, so there's lots of extra space inside. The decor is lovely - lots of Viking stuff - and the staff is great. Even though the weather out of New York started out very wet with rocky seas (it was a transition cruise and very low priced) ...

Wanted to try a Viking Ocean Cruise. In 2007 we took a Viking River Cruise in Russia which was not great.......the ship, food, cabin, etc, were in general BAD. The destinations were most interesting but as a river cruise experience, we have not been on one since. This Ocean cruise was GREAT except for some really rough weather. The programs and lectures were very interesting, frequent and ...
