This was our sixth trip with Viking, and we've never been disappointed. The care and attention that's given to our comfort, safety, and needs is consistently excellent. The itineraries provide a wide range of included and optional excursions off the ship, but also offer a full day on on-board activities should you prefer. On this particular trip, I would highly recommended a pre- or post-extension to Iceland, which was amazing.

Viking does not disappoint. The stateroom was well appointment and the service was outstanding. Their ships are well designed so that you never feel you are in a crowded environment.

Viking Ocean cruise exceeded my expectations. It was a great experience with wonderful service, fantastic food and amazing shore excursions.

The ship's staff were excellent. They all introduced themselves to us and made sure that any need or request was quickly taken care of. There was a ship-board doctor available when I needed assistance. If we met one of the staff in a hallway, they would always greet us with a smile and ask how we were. I look forward to the next cruise we take and the staff that we will meet.

Viking was fantastic. We particularly enjoyed the New York 9/11 shore excursion (very moving). And the "Field to Fork at Les Jarins de Sophie" at Saguenay was outstanding. The Viking staff onboard the Neptune were the best ever. I rate Viking personnel the best of any cruise line I've travelled.

Great trip and experience overall with Viking. There were a few minor glitches but nothing monumental. The staff and organization were incredible.

As usual with a Viking Cruise, we felt pampered by the entire staff on the ship. They went out of their way to make us happy. The ship was gorgeous, spotless clean, and perfectly deigned. The food was wonderful, and always presented in an appealing way. I had heard that the Great Lakes were sometimes rough, so I was worried about getting seasick. On the Octantis we could hardly feel that the ship was moving because the ride was so smooth, and at night the ship is very quiet, and rooms seem soundproof..we did not hear our neighbors at all. In all it was a great cruise.

The Viking transatlantic crossing was fantastic. I so enjoy the days at sea with all of the many activities, plus lectures and entertainment.

Always attentive, patient and professional, endless patience with some of our guests were difficult. But Mr. Warren was excellent, Sally call accompanied us on the trip through. Australia was wonderful patient and over and above her call to duty. Had a great time in spite of some weather issues that no one controls.

The staff was very responsive. Very very clean ship. My wife has several food allergies. At every meal she received reassurances that her meals were prepared separately with her allergies in mind. The food was excellent. Much better than some other cruise lines. Entertainment was excellent. Live band every night. Wine and beer included at lunch and dinner. Drinks and cocktails at other times were very reasonably priced. Cheaper than local bars.

Viking Ocean Cruise was a good experience and we especially enjoyed Greece. Overall Viking staff was excellent and added to the experience. Viking Sea is only a 930 passenger ship and had 907 passengers. We did not feel crowded and could easily find free space for us and our friends to find a quiet space to talk, drink or play cards. There were plenty of excursions to choose from.

Although we have little experience with ocean travels it will be safe to say that Viking would be qualified as a first class ship!!

We love Viking ocean cruises. This is our 2nd Viking cruise and we just booked our 3rd cruise. The ship is just the right size, not to big not to small. The entire staff is amazing, the food and entertainment was excellent. Wine and beer are included, all you can drink at lunch and dinner.

Cabins were beautiful as was the entire ship; staff was excellent....friendly and helpful; food was delicious; ports were interesting and most shore excursions were included. Highly recommend.

Because of the war in Russia we were not able to go to Finland, St. Petersburg, and Estonia. Also it was too windy to go visit Bornholm.

Mr Steves was very helpful and on top of every request and concern. The Viking cruise was outstanding. The personnel was totally outstanding with the desire to ensuring our cruise was something we would never forget. When we are ready for another cruise we will ensure it will be with Viking. I don't believe you can match viking's staff with any other cruise staff. They knew every passage and ensured we had a totally outstanding experience.

As Viking Cruises gets bigger and bigger with more ships and itineraries, I was worried about the consistent high quality we have previously experienced with our 6 Viking cruises. We were not disappointed. The port talks were wonderfully prepared and presented; the entertainment was high quality and the excursions were extremely well coordinated (as we watched the other cruise lines struggle with tenders and long lines just to get on-shore and the mass of people pushing and shoving to be first!). We booked a few more Viking cruises; we are hooked.

Viking is the top of the line for older travelers. The staff was very accommodating. The ship was pristine, Someone was cleaning from 5:00 am until the last guests retired. On board programs were geared to the interest of the age group of the guests. Very pleased.

Our trip around Cape Horn on Viking Jupiter was wonderful despite missing our port stop in the Falkland Islands due to weather. Viking offered overnight excursion to Ighazu Falls that was fabulous and more than worth the money.
