Started off rocky, but got a LOT better by msorbello

All in all, it was pretty good. Like I said, the first few days were fairly rocky, albeit with some high points, but we were by no means alone in our frustration and anger at shore excursions, food quality, and staff who seemed clueless. Many people we spoke with agreed that it felt like a shakeout cruise, and we were all guinea pigs. But by the fifth or sixth day, things improved dramatically (at least for us -- we heard some people were very upset about a botched schedule with shore excursions in Bergen). I think once Viking gets a little more experience doing ocean cruises, and has done this itinerary more than a couple of times, things will go much more smoothly for future passengers. One thing for sure -- they are willing to learn from mistakes/complaints and fix things on the fly. The assistant restaurant manager even sought us out at lunch one day to thank us for our comments on the food and to assure us that they were taking all comments seriously.

Mixed, ship excellent, customer service poor by Temple11

This is for a 2018 booking. We had booked this trip well in advance. Have been on 4 river cruises and one prior ocean cruise on Viking plus other river trips with other tour carriers. Have been completely satisfied with their service, optional tours, food and entertainment on ship. Think some client reviewers have unrealistic expectations for smaller ships. Vietnam and Cambodia was outstanding.

The travel service would be a 2 and detracts from the on board experience. On a recent trip to Europe with many seasoned travelers had similar viewpoints as mine. Only use their travel if included with the package you purchase or very difficult to arrang transfer to ship.They get the cheapest flights that can include an extra stopover and last boarding priority on the flights. We booked early on the Viking  Homelands trip for 2018. Viking rerouted the ship and had to change trip. We had encouraged two other couples to join us. All booked on the same portion of the ship. We had arranged the trip schedule to have optional train trip from Bergin to Oslo at end to insure no jet lag. As result of redirecting the ship, we are on different floors and optional train trip is at start of voyage. The customer support were not helpful and borderline insulting on their rationale.

It will all will work out but be cautious on land support.

Expect hiccups along the way, especially departures earlier than advertised (with very little notice). If excursions you want are sold out prior to departure, keep checking back before departure (we got one two weeks before departure) and after embarkation (once aboard, we were able to add two tours that had been sold out prior to departure).

We have never been on a Viking River Cruise, but we heard MANY people talking and comparing. We came to the conclusion from hearing so many that there is really not a direct comparison... so our advice is don't try to compare. Look at Viking Ocean as a new adventure...!
