Big disappointment for those of us who were on for 127 days not 40.

Jan 6th, 2020

This cruise was advertised as a 245 or 127 day world cruise. Unfortunately neither sold and only 178 of the 930 passengers were on for the world cruise portion, unbeknow to the world cruisers Viking sold segments to fill the ship. That meant 700+ passengers got on/off the ship every two weeks and Viking entertainers repeated the same shows every two weeks for the 700+ new passengers forgetting about the 178 passengers who had already seen the shows. This happened six times in the 127 day portion of the cruise with an occasional, mediocre entertainer brought on board to supplement Viking's entertainers. Segment passengers did not know they were on a world cruise until after they boarded. We would not have booked this trip if we'd known how many very disrupting segments had been added, Viking should have notified us and given us the opportunity to cancel.

Viking skipper two ports due to weather or sea conditions. Puerto Montt was skipped even though HOLLAND America ship was tendering passengers. Viking Captain VERY conservative, causing this port experience to be lost. Far too many sea days as a result of skipping ports.

Alot of sea days but were kept busy with excellent lectures. The Cruise Director Vicki did an excellent job with the onboard entertaiment and port previews.

Viking Quality was excellent. On-board entertainment was less than I expected.

Norway is beautiful. We took the Oslo cruise extension on the front end. Hotel and experience was terrific. Train ride to Bergen was beautiful.

Suber Ship & Crew

Viking runs an outstanding cruise, included excursions at each port, supplemented with optional excursions, free internet (extremely slow speeds), free business center. Just not for the person who wants a large ship with many activities and a casino.

Among the best vacations I've ever taken!

From beginning to end a great trip. Service stood out, especially after my passport was temporarily mis-placed. We loved it so much, we booked another cruise with Viking while on-board.

Great Itinerary, beautiful ship like a museum, but...

May 22nd, 2018

Have never traveled with so many rude and inconsiderate people. I was pushed, shoved, elbowed, jabbed in the back, tripped on purpose three times, yelled at and all by men. A friend of mine had a glass of water thrown in her face by a man. So many were always first on the bus, first off, first on the tender, first off, first row of the theater, first, first, first. Some quarantined for upper respiratory or lower gastro issues refused to stay in their cabins. Beautiful ship, wonderful staff and crew but Viking does not match its competition in terms of free unlimited shore excursions, pre-cruise hotel packages, transfers from hotel/airport to ship, etc. Penthouse Junior Suite is size of most lowest level staterooms on other ships. For a world cruise designated ship there was very little closet space. Port talks held the day before gave inaccurate or misleading information and there was no time to make a change or choose by then. Excursion evaluations were not read. WIFI was "hit or miss", unreliable and soooo slloooowww. Viking Voyage app is non-functional and useless. Every week of so it kept telling me that my cruise had ended and had to delete and re-download which was impossible with the WIFI. Solo travelers were charged inconsistently - some paid double, some 1.5, some 1.75 and some 1.25. Movie choices were limited and mostly second rate. Salt and pepper mills did not function. Free laundry and dry cleaning, mini bar, alcohol, one included shore excursion (mostly a bus tour with a quick drive by), luggage shipping to the ship, visa processing, business class air to and from ship, all gratuities, medical services were included plus shipboard credits. The itinerary was altered to not overnight in Manila in order to get to Shanghai for the ship's christening and we were promised an exquisite evening off the ship but it was a nightmare - food served was like the backwash of a river, the christening ceremony was blocked from our view and was shown on TV monitors, translations were at the same level of sound so neither the Chinese or English could be understood. And, the Chinese would not allow the American crew to come ashore at any Chinese port. The owner of Viking was not allowed to stay overnight on his own ship in Shanghai and was escorted onboard to retrieve his belongings by armed guards.
