Northern Lights Cruise

Based on our other cruise experiences, we would not consider Viking again unless they had an itinerary that we could not get on another cruise line.

Not really for younger people ( aka 60 down)

Very boring. Good for 70’s and up. You should buy the equipment to see the lights beforehand, otherwise you won’t see anything.

Nice trip to see the Northern Lights

Jan 28th, 2020

We loved visiting a Norway, truly a wonderful experience. Our third Viking trip in 12 months- love the line, but not quite up to our experience on the Sun. That was a tad disappointing for us.

Amazing Ship, Not So Amazing Itinerary

Jan 19th, 2020

Overall we really enjoyed the ship. With two days at sea out of a seven day trip, we took advantage of the spa, relaxing spaces and visiting with new friends made on the cruise. Very easy to do with the smaller Viking ship and less than 1,000 passengers. The ship never felt crowded.

Relax cruise on a wonderful ship

Jan 17th, 2020

It was our first experience with Viking, and to be honest, surprised by the beauty and decoration of the ship. The ship is beautiful with many places to read or just simply contemplate the sea. The service is excellent, the food is very good . Just said that we will repeat with Viking

Fall Mediterranean Cruise

Dec 12th, 2019

Great cruise! Was worried about the amount of people on the ship after taking river cruises but the ship never felt crowded. The rooms are spacious with plenty of storage. I did like the room set up of the Avalon rooms better with the beds facing the windows. The food is fine - nothing special. Food on the Avalon river cruise was better and more unique.

November Mediterranean Cruise

Dec 5th, 2019

For our first ocean cruise, we were very happy with the experience. The size of the ship seems nearly perfect and never felt crowded. On the last day, we realized that there were elements/activities that we hadn't even had time to utilize.
