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.

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.

Viking cannot do enough for its customers. This was our first Viking experience and it was spectacular. The only downside was that the hours did not provide enough roaming/shopping time, and, of course, some of the local tour guides were overly loquacious. That happens on any tour.

This Viking cruise certainly exceeded our expectations.

Although the Viking Jupiter is classified as a small ship, it is really quite large. That has its benefits: several restaurants, great shows and on-board programs - but with 900 passengers you don't get to know people. Often have good conversations with people sitting near you at meals, but then never see them again. - That can be fine if you aren't looking to make friends.

Trip a mixed bag. Viking does scenic cruising, excursions to small towns very well. Excursions to cities were disappointing. Based on Edinburgh and London decided to forgo trip from Hongkong to Bancock. Maybe Polynesia later.

Booking with Linh is a winner every time! She does a great job with every detail.

I loved my Viking cruise and booked another one while still on the first.

The ship and the staff could not have been any better. The shore excursions fell a little short of our expectations. We felt some of the trips missed the best parts of the area. Our stop in Barcelona included a stop Gaudi's cathedral & we were surprised to learn that we could not go inside.
