Viking Sea Cruise Review by gldnpear

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Sep 2018
  • Destination: Canada & New England

We chose this cruise because we wanted to visit places in Canada that were on the itinerary. Also, the short flight from Boston to Montreal was attractive. We have traveled with Viking before. We have gone on two river cruises and one other ocean cruise. The Viking experience is wonderful, ship is beautiful, staff is exceptional from the dining staff, cabin attendants, cruise director, etc. The only complaint I would have is that a few of the excursions were a disappointment. Also, they need to give the opportunity to review EVERY excursion. We only were given that opportunity for one of the excursions, One of the tours started out with a large group and half way through more than half of the group left the tour and went out on their own. This was one of the extra (not included) tours, so of course after paying for it we were not happy. We have signed up for two more Viking cruises because overall we are happy with Viking and hope the excursion experience will be better.

Cabin Review

Don't remember our number, but it was on the 6th floor. Spotless, comfortable bed, bathroom was roomy and loved the heated floor!

Horrible ride on small boat to port because we couldn't dock close to land. Went to see a play which was o.k., but would rather have gone to another city that had something to see and learn about.

Took morning included tour which was fine - in the afternoon we took a walking tour that was very poor.

Very slow ride around the city - best thing was the stop at the 911 memorial. The tour guide was very good.
