Sail Date: Mar 2023
Cabin: Deluxe Veranda Stateroom

My sister in law and I initially booked with Hurtigruten until we were informed that Viking sailed a similar itinerary. So grateful we switched! The Viking Venus is a beautiful ship! Soothing colors, beautiful spaces to relax, exceptional staff, delicious food and great entertainment.

We boarded in Tilbury and this was the fastest onboarding of any cruise experience. We exited from the taxi and were on the ship enjoying lunch in a matter of minutes.

The itinerary for this cruise changed, without explanation, although we attempted to find one. When we booked, we expected to visit Stavanger, Bodo, Tromso, Alta, Narvik and Bergen. Stavanger and Bodo were canceled and replaced with Amsterdam and a sea day.

Cabin Review

Deluxe Veranda Stateroom

Our cabin was very comfortable. I loved having the Nespresso machine in the room! And I loved the heated bathroom floor!

Joe and Sandi were exceptional stewards and our cabin sparkled.

We had a great movie selection, too.

Port Reviews


Just so beautiful! Exceptionally delicious fish soup at Erika.

The views from the Alta Museum were breathtaking!
