6-10 Cruises • Age 60s

My Husband and I boarded this cruise in Barcelona, and continued for 15 days until we reached Venice. Ports included Sete (Montpelier) Marseille, VilleFranche Sur Mer (Monaco), Florence, Rome, Naples, Messina, Bari, Crotone, SIbenik Croatia and Venice. We chose Viking because we really liked the destinations we were allowed. Also, they allowed us to cancel for any reason prior to the cruise - ...

My 83 year old mother and I chose Viking as her end all get all Cruise. Her grand finale’. We loved the itinerary and added days on the front and back end. Thank God for those days. Once we boarded, early as we had a nice suite, we were told we could not leave the ship unattended via letter in our stateroom. At any port. This was not communicated before hand. This is how it works. Must be ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

We booked this cruise over 2 years ago and was seriously thinking about cancelling it and rebooking for a later date. We didn't due to no availability until 2023. Hind site is 20/20 and we should have canceled. We embarked in Barcelona and disembarked in Venice. This was first ever once in a lifetime cruise. We had high expectations due to great Viking reviews. Viking was being very cautious ...

Too Much COVID Concerns to Enjoy the Cruise

Chose this cruise because it had an inviting itinerary, with enough new ports to allow for self touring. Started in Reykjavik Iceland. The moment we checked in there was an intensity about COVID. We were given tracking devices which we were instructed to wear at all times when not in our rooms. They went out of their way to avoid calling them tracking devices. Once on board we were informed that ...

Even with the covid restrictions and protocols this was a great cruise. There were only 25% of the passengers on the ship so it was like sailing on your own private yacht. Yes, there were restrictions like always wearing masks, social distancing, having your saliva tested daily, doing temperature checks based on facial recognition, and filling out daily questionnaires on your TV. Once we got ...

Viking was well organized and ship was stunning. Loved the Thermal Suite--try everything! Push all the buttons including the one in the snow room!! Happy and cordial staff everywhere. Our balcony penthouse(not a penthouse) was perfect with tons of storage. Easy covid testing everyday. Unique vessel sinks to wash your hands just inside the dining venues. The average age on our cruise we ...

We had friends who went on this cruise in June 2021 and they strongly recommended it. We had never cruised on Viking before but loved that it was an all vaccinated guest and crew cruise. We were thrilled with the cruise and beauty of the ship and service. For our cruise there were only 402 guests and 454 crew. The service and friendliness of the crew was extraordinary. We loved Bermuda and ...

Nice to get back on the water. Lots of paperwork to get on the cruise, some of it was never checked. PCR tested every morning, as far as I know, there were no outbreaks. The Viking only charter flight direct to/from Malta was icing on the cake. We had to skip Montenegro because of changing Covid conditions, we spent 2 days in Dubrovnik instead. Tours varied, some good, some not so good. In ...

10+ Cruises • Age 60s

I chose this cruise when Viking e-mailed us a very good offer with zero single supplement. We arrived from LHR at 2.30pm and quite quickly we were through the airport checks. It’s much faster if you have VERIFLY completed. We were directed to waiting buses and transferred to the ship. In under 10 mins we had completed our check in documents and stateroom card in hand walked out to the ship First ...

Good first cruise with Viking but food a disappointment

I should start this review by explaining that we have only ever cruised with Regent, Seabourn and Silversea before (and once in Cunard queens grill never to be repeated) so we have judged Viking by the standard we have become accustomed to on these cruise lines. This cruise was advertised in an email we received but not on the Viking web site and our travel agent advised (after calling ...
