A ship not an apartment block

Review for Marco Polo to Baltic Sea

Chose the cruise because of the itinerary [St Petersburg] and have sailed on Marco Polo before. Marco Polo looks like a ship and not like a floating apartment block and that's why I like it. OK it has its downside when the ship is full - not enough seating in buffet; insufficient open deck seating; cramped restaurant tables [and bossy waiters at breakfast & lunch - sit where you are told [for ...

Firstly we chose “Viking” based on our previous river cruising experiences. We always book our travel and transfers with Viking. As soon as we see the Viking agents responsible for getting us to our ship, we immediately relax and get into vacation mode. We chose this cruise hoping to see the natural beauty of the Norwegian fjords and Viking came through with flying colors. As advertized, our ...

We chose this cruise because we had had a very good experience with Viking on two of their river cruises and we wanted to visit Scotland. Before the trip I was disappointed that we would be spending so much time in Norway and not more in Scotland and England. After the trip I can honestly say Norway was amazing although I would give up a couple of days to see a bit more of England. As for the ...

It was our goal to see Scandinavia and the Baltic. We were not disappointed! We had been on Viking River Cruises on the Yangtze and the Danube, and we were keen to try out the ocean going vessel. The four weeks were filled with so much to do, both on board and in the excursions. We were delighted with the quality of the lectures offered on board, and we appreciated having the opportunity to ...

Disappointed in Viking Sea cruise

We chose this cruise because of the itinerary, which we loved, and because we wanted to try the new Viking ships. Ship was terrific, especially public spaces--spacious and wide variety of experiences. Otherwise, not so much, as we had major problems with excursions and restaurants--systems and management issues, primarily. Excursion management is a disaster. You cannot count on My Viking ...

Everything was perfect beginning to end. We have been on several Viking cruises and find that they pay attention to details. Our choices for food and restaurants were varied and the quality was excellent. The staff were very friendly and efficient and genuinely cared about your experience while on " their" ship. I would recommend Viking to anyone looking for a wonderful cruise experience. The ship ...

I rarely bother to write reviews, but I felt that his one had to be done. We boarded in Harwich for a Baltic cruise, and then stayed on board for the TransAtlantic cruise to Boston. I combined my thoughts on this cruise with the cruise taken just before it. It was a back-to-back. Generally, individuals working on the ship were very nice and gave good service. Gerald, our room steward, and ...

This was our first cruise with RCL, following previous experience with Cunard and NCL. We were a family of 3 (2 adults, 1 child of 11) also travelling with extended family. This was our first cruise where we sailed from the UK, we liked parking and the lack of hassle involved with flights, but while getting to Harwich was ok for us, it's not a great port. However, embarkation (and ...

Great cities, disappointing cruise

Crew was outstanding in servicing our family during meal times. They made this cruise less disappointing to us. The itinerary is perfect, great selection of cities with good range of excursions and tour options. Royal Tots was ok. Our room was not properly cleaned, esp. the balcony (there were slippers, pills from previous guests underneath the bed and plates from breakfast were left in the ...

I just joined CC after years of reviewing information on the site. Thought I should go back and post some information from my cruising experiences; hence the long delay between cruise date and posting date. The ports and excursions on this trip were spectacular. The highlights were St. Petersburg Hermitage museum (quickly run into the square before the tour starts for a picture because you ...
