Excellent staff, good food, good accommodations.
we really enjoyed our cruise and the service on the ship was great. The only thing we had a problem with was our optional tour of whale and wildlife cruise on July 9th. We all thought that the boat was way overcrowded. It was cold and rainy that day and all of us could not fit in the covered sections of the boat. Several people complained to the crew and we were all told that there was exactly enough room for everyone and the problem must have been that some people were taking up too much room. We all thought that was ridiculous, they simply booked too many people for the tour. That is the only complaint that we had. Everything else was terrific.
We have now enjoyed six Viking river and ocean cruises, and strongly recommend them. Excellent service, great food, comfortable accommodations. And with AffordableTours' help, we had no issues preparing for our trip. My only suggestion is to do your best to avoid using United Airlines for your flights. Nothing good to say about them. Clearly United Airlines is no longer in the customer satisfaction industry.
THIS IS THE SECOND TRIP WE HAVE BOOKED WITH KIA. OUR CRUISE ACCOMODATIONS WERE PERFECT. SHE IS ALWAYS HELPFUL AND PROFESSIONAL. SHE MAKES SURE ALL OUR NEEDS ARE MET SO OUR TRIP IS PERFECT. WE WILL ALWAYS BOOK OUR NEXT TRIP WITH HER.
Viking does it right, no issues.
Excellent Tour agent Rick and Vikkng cruise & extensions the best
Viking is a great cruise line. The service is incredible, very friendly knowledgeable staff, great shows on the ship, the food was so delicious at every meal.
Viking is a step ahead of others for their itineraries, shore excursions, educational programs, food, staff and overall experience. The Viking Orion is new and the layout of all of their ships is the same, so you immediately know your way around. We can't say enough about the staff, they are the BEST!! We met over a dozen that came from the Viking Star that we cruised with two years ago and they remembered our names! Viking may be a little pricy going in, but it is well worth the money and beer and wine is included for lunch and dinner, free wifi (a real plus), laundry facility and room service 24 hours a day. The ship is the right size (just 930 passengers) and the service is outstanding
The Staterooms, although beautifully appointed, were small.
