April 2022 - Spring Cruise on the Douro

April 2022 - My wife and I have been on numerous cruises (24+) throughout the world on various cruise lines over the years. This was our fifth river cruise on Viking. Our Douro River Cruise started in Lisbon, Portugal on April 4, 2022. We took the pre-cruise option. This was our first trip out of the USA since 2019. Our flight from Florida arrived a few days early so we could enjoy Lisbon ...

Nice scenery, pleasant cruise

Review for Viking Hemming to Europe - All

This was our first river cruise, though we have done several ocean cruises. The ships on the Douro are very small, ours had a maximum of 106 passengers, but only 87 were onboard. There is one dining room, and everyone eats at the same time. Tours are included, so everyone tours at the same time. I read another review that described river cruising as a bus tour on water, and that is really what ...

My husband and I enjoyed our latest Viking trip on the Douro River in Portugal. The Tivoli hotel in Lisbon was first class and set the tone for the trip. The crew of the Hemming was attentive, the food delicious and the excursions were interesting and fun. Unfortunately for me, I tested positive for COVID and missed the last excursion due to quarantine rules. My husband and I spent the day in ...

We have sailed twice before with SS and enjoyed it. This was prior to its buy out. Joining the ship at Lisbon after queuing for 3 hours in passport control , we eventually found a SS rep who put us on a coach to travel to the port. Stood for a long time in the sun in a queue that was not moving. No communication by staff there. Once we started to move (1 hour later) the check in and ...

Food Better than October Voyage on Quest

Review for Azamara Quest to Europe - British Isles & Western

This was our 2nd trip on the Quest -- both during COVID. We travelled in late October from Rome to Barcelona. Amazing service during that trip and while the service this time was very good it wasn't as impressive or sharp as in October. Staff seemed so eager back in October and have since dulled a bit in enthusiasm but they're still fantastic. Food (and entertainment) we found to be the ...

Hit or miss food, inattentive cabin staff

I chose this cruise for its North African itinerary which was changed at the last moment, when Morocco closed its ports to cruise ships. This was probably the biggest factor in my disappointment. I also had very high expectations for this cruise line, based on reviews. However, I found the food in the main dining room to be a real letdown (especially the bread, desserts, and ice cream). The ...

Well maintained vessel, but standards have definitely dropped

Review for Riviera to Mediterranean

We chose this cruise to get back onto the water. Like so many others, we missed cruising through the pandemic. We saw this cruise surface, realised the vessel was not fully booked, had the time and made the booking. We had cruised on Riviera in December 2018 (from Miami) and Marina in 2017 (from Rome) so we are familiar with the line and the vessel. We enjoy the Penthouse Suites (from 2018) and ...

The crew, as always, were very attentive & helpful. My husband uses a wheelchair, & we know before starting, that he won’t be able to partake in all the excursions, but he likes being on the ship! The meals & wine were outstanding. We also did the pre-cruise extension in Madrid & the post-cruise extension Road to Santiago, which were very interesting. We’d been to Madrid before, so we wanted ...

The River of Gold cruise was our second Viking River cruise; Châteaux, Rivers & Wine from Bordeaux the first. We also took the fabulous Viking Ocean cruise, In Search of the Northern Lights; a thrilling display right from our veranda. We opted for this cruise after the Lyon & Provence cruise was cancelled by the pandemic in spring 2020. The October 2021 Douro cruise was our first travel experience ...

Oceania Still Delivers Post-Pandemic, Albeit a Bit Differently

Review for Marina to Mediterranean

6-10 Cruises • Age 40s

Like many avid cruisers, we had several much anticipated cruises cancelled during the pandemic that shut down much of the world in 2020 and 2021. Our cruise, Iberia to Italia, was one of the first aboard Marina, the first of Oceania's ships to return to service post-pandemic. Prior to providing details of our experience it's important to note that there were still a great many COVID restrictions ...
