This was our first Viking River Cruise, but it won't be our last. Everyone on the staff and crew made sure we had an excellent experience. The Duiro River was experiencing high waters and behind the scenes the captain and crew were working very hard to keep us on track. However, those of us who were passengers never missed an excursion or experience because of all their hard work. Meals were ...

Bus Tour not River Cruise.

First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

Over priced and limited cruising of river. With maybe 4 day’s actually cruising on the river we spent most of our time on a bus. Stayed in same port 4 days. Not really Vikings fault due to the high water coming from Spain. But no offers of refunds or cruise credits for were ever offered. But you could buy a $100 voucher for your next cruise. Dining staff was under staffed and wait times were a ...

We chose to go on a river cruise, thinking it would be as advertised—relaxing, immersive, and beautiful scenery along a river. We got a crowded bus tour with a view of the boat next to us 5 nights out of 8. Save your money. The Douro River tour is falsely advertised. It’s up early every day (before 7 am), get on a bus by 8:15 am, go to a location (no time for exploring), get a crowded tour by ...

Mixed feelings about it

We chose this for the itinerary to see more of Spain and Portugal. Infinity is an older ship but we're ok with that. Staff were all excellent. Entertainment was mixed. Will Martin was the highlight and performed on two nights. The female violinist was good. We walked out of the male violinist. We also walked out of the magician/comedian who did old routines and wasn't funny. The entertainment crew ...

Itinerary made it worth going. Have been on Infinity in the past, ( and other Celebrity ship's ) and we noted a drastic drop in menu standard at main dining room. The confirmed late dining had gone missing in the reservation, and we had to negotiate a bit to get a set table. Waiter service was inadequate. Each night we waited a very long time for everything. Shortage of staff or they are not ...

Having been on the Solstice class ships on four different cruises, nothing prepared us for this older kind of ship at full capacity! Okay, the ship is old, we expected that but the public places are well kept up and the food is fine too. However, the great aspects of a Celebrity cruise are missing, and the constant negatives of Celebrity are worse here than on the solstice class ships. I mention: ...

1) The 106-passenger ship is too small for “Exploring the World in Comfort”. Standard “staterooms” are really just bedrooms with no sitting area and an average of 20” on each side of the bed. There is no gym, walking track, medical room, theater, or specialty restaurants. If you choose not to go on an excursion, there is nothing to do but sit in the lounge and look at the view or chat with ...

We chose this cruise because of the dates/location required. Our inside cabin was just fine and saved a lot of money. One port was changed for another due to bad weather which was appreciated rather than another sea day. Lots of activities on the ship. We dont do the drinks or wifi package because of high price which I guess is normal on all cruises. I was quite happy with the food but I always ...

Over many years my wife and I have been able to river cruise several times on the rivers of Europe. This was our first experience cruising with Scenic. Ten days on Scenic's Azure cruising Portugals Douro was more than memorable. We found it difficult to fault any aspect of our trip....we simply could not. Everything & everyone....from the Captain,the restaurant staff, to "suite butlers" made our ...

I knew nothing of Portugal when I booked this trip other than hearing about a trip that a friend took. I can't believe that Portugal hadn't been on my list of places to see until now. What a wonderful country! The ship could not have been better! The crew was AWESOME. I know that's a word that is sometimes overused, but truly, that's the only way to describe them. EVERYONE was so welcoming ...
