Really Disappointed

I've waited a few months to write this review; I didn't want to overreact, but rather give some time for reflection. We have sailed with HAL 13 times, and once each with Windstar and Paul Gauguin. We like great ...

Improved tremendously by end of cruise

Viking is noted for being an above average cruise line. Unfortunately this particular cruise started out substandard for Viking. I made comments early on in our cruise and was really pleased with the quick feedback ...

Almost perfect

Auckland to Sydney. The only disappointment was the final day in Sydney being too short, and apparent confusion amongst Viking staff about water shuttles from wharf to attractions. Arrived Sydney at 1PM, and ...

Tokyo to Vancouver via Russia and Alaska

We had originally booked a shorter cruise of the inside passage when we found this longer cruise for less money because it was a repositioning cruise. I was able to show my wife beautiful parts of Japan before ...

Surprising Bali and Australia

We chose this cruise because of the December sailing dates and because we wanted to snorkel at the Great Barrier Reef. It's our first Viking cruise, and we were not disappointed. From the pre-cruise stay in Nusa Dua ...

WOW!

We have been on five cruises before - Celebrity, Princess, Cunard and Norwegian. None of them compare to Viking (although Cunard is close). This cruise was pretty much flawless in every way you can imagine. ...

It was wonderful! Just wanted more of the South Island of NZ!

We chose this cruise because we had long talked about going to Aus/NZ and with free airfare, it was time to go! A storm out of Antarctic kept us from stopping in the port of Dunedin, and fire danger cancelled out ...

Relaxing, enjoyable; pleasant stateroom

Chose it by going online and reading reviews. I was attracted by the fact that there were no children, no gimmiks, no casinos. The food, while pleasant, wasn't spectacular, as I'd been told happens on a ...

We have always had Australia and New Zealand on our wish list but the large cruise ships kept us away. We saw the size of the Viking ocean liners and it fit us to a t. Embarkation and debarkation was a breeze. We ...
