Additional details

Sail Date: Feb 2020
Cabin:

This was our first booking with Viking Ocean Cruises, and really this was due to the fact that they were the only cruise company in Norway during February.

Having sailed with many 5/6 star operators including Regent, Oceania, Cunard (QG;s) we didn't have any raised expectations of what Viking would be like so as not to be disappointed - which we have been on our last Oceania cruises

In a nut shell we thoroughly enjoyed Viking, the service being exceptional in all areas.

Cabin Review

A great space, light and airy. The TV and multimedia is very good, along with plenty of interactive material, films etc

The bathroom was ok - I must say I prefer a tub over a shower, but the cost of getting a cabin with a tub is very high - very clean and in good condition throughout

Fantastic cabin stewards, extremely attentive, nothing too much trouble

We had a topper on the bed, as we found it firm but this wasn't a problem

Comfortable chairs and sofa too

Port Reviews

London (Greenwich, Tower Bridge, Tilbury)

We found boarding at Tilbury extremely easy, and so fast! From exiting our taxi, it was pretty much down to how fast we could walk - very welcoming staff in all areas
