We recently completed a 17 day cruise across the North Atlantic aboard the Zuiderdam, billed as “Voyage of the Vikings” from Boston to Rotterdam. This is actually first part of a longer 35 day cruise that returns to Boston, visiting different ports coming and going. We were among the minority of guests who departed halfway through. Many guests don’t enjoying flying and dealing with jet lag and ...

We booked this cruise as we always wanted to visit Iceland, Greenland and Ireland. We didn't have the greatest weather...however as my husband always reminds me...you pay your money and take your chances! The scenery and people are so wonderful. We heard so many great reviews from friends that had taken this voyage. Our cabin on the Zuiderdam was a balcony #8121. This is located Aft - ...

This Boston to Boston, 38 day cruise allowed us to experience many ports we have never been to. Canadian ports were very friendly, Greenland was novel, people friendly, very interesting. Iceland included 5 stops, so we felt it was well covered as each port allowed us to see a variety of scenery. Weather was better than expected although we missed several ports due to heavy fog. Prince ...

Voyage of the Vikings was a dream cruise for us. After reading reviews and following prior Viking voyages on line, we decided it was time for us to take the plunge. We are so happy we did it! Not everything was perfect but we didn’t let the small issues dampen our trip or the overall experience. MS Rotterdam is an older ship and despite reading complaints from other reviews, we felt the ship ...

Scenic viewing of icebergs from the ship was spectacular and was the best part of trip. leaving rotterdam we were enjoying the view from the rear of the ship for 2 hours. in bergum norway we rode the funicular. the waterfalls and scenery in iceland were beautiful. qaqortoq ...

Having never been to Greenland or Iceland the stops on this cruise were a great attraction the food was good to very good and the entertainment was very good. The minuses were the ship. We had to call for plumbing issues 4 times and AC issues multiple times. There was also an irritating knocking fro, we think the window which kept me awake the first night. The pool was like ice the first ...

Chose Holland due to the voyage only, was a big mistake. Ship needs to be in dry dock. Dining windows cracked top to bottom. Weathered, could hardly see out them. Cabin window siliconed with rust. Shower either scalded, or froze u. Lavatory leaked water everyday. Cabin boy woke us up at 5:30 everyday collecting ice from ice machine across the hall. Said ice machine was out on his floor as ...

Some American friends invited us along and the itinerary seemed great. August 2017. The RotteNdam as we named her was a floating bathtub. Raining in Boston on embarcation and there was water coming through the roof in the lido dining room so they covered the bain marie and had buckets everywhere. Ocean view cabin was the usual expectation, but very dated. Walked around and got wet socks ...

We received multiple recommendations about doing "The Voyage of the Vikings" and I must say no one could have prepared us for the adventures encountered during this trip. The ports of call ranged from large cities like Rotterdam, Dublin and Belfast to out of the way ports like Red Bay and Qaqortoq. Each stop brought new insight into this new global world. Luckily at each port the weather was ...

Embarkation and disembarkation was effortless. Choose this cruise because it went to many ports/countries that I have not been to. Despite the title of this cruise, Voyage of the Vikings, it really did not emphasize the Vikings very much. Some of the ports were not worth going to, e.g. Red Bay, Labrador, Canada, but overall a very enjoyable cruise. I liked that we were never at sea for more ...
