As someone who has been in both, Viking has an inferior product when you actually compare both. Their included tours are brutal, often just a bus tour. Their food tries, but is not up to Oceania. Their customer service is terrible. Some of Vikings itineraries are outstanding and different and their decor is modern, their bathrooms wonderful. But lack of solo pricing, prohibition of children, and early payment policy leaves them off my radar. They have forced O to make several changes for the better. O life, modernization of the ships, non bottled water. O is doing well.
