Iceland’s Majestic Landscape

|

If you enjoy the outdoors, the ports on this cruise won’t disappoint. My husband and I hiked, rode bikes, climbed waterfalls, in short, took advantage of the landscapes offered in Iceland, the Faroe Islands ...

Another outstanding cruise

We wanted to go to Scandinavian countries and especially Norway. Since Norway is the home of Viking they were the obvious choice. Also, past Viking cruises were excellent and fantastic experiences. The food ...

Absolutely Awful Experience - Avoid This Company !

Following a run-in with cancer, this voyage was to be the holiday of a lifetime. Consequently I opted for the suite package ; sadly this was to be a very expensive mistake. Check-in. A late change meant guests ...

Poor communications and poor 'expedition' logistics marred the trip.

Greenland was rightly the desired destination, with the ship sailing from Reykjavik, Iceland. Passengers were inconvenienced at the outset by the fact that Hurtigruten had taken delivery of the ship before necessary ...

Very disappointing

I've never been on such a disappointing cruise. And the shame is that since I was in a concierge floor veranda stateroom and didn't want to share a room, I paid almost $20,000 for two weeks of over-the-top ...

Outstanding service, dining, amenities & entertainment!

I had always wanted to explore Iceland and Scandinavia. What better way to do this than on a superior, luxury cruise? Prior cruisers raved about this cruise line on social media. Included excursions at every port, ...

Extremely Disappointed

We chose this as it was to be a discovery expedition, which in reality it wasn’t. The ship itself wasn’t completed. The cabins weren’t ready of finished, the decks outside were still being finished and had ...

NOT WHAT IT SAID

We chose this cruise as a way to visit both Greenland and Nunavut. With our tickets, two weeks before departure, the itinerary stated that we would not be able to go ashore at any of the three stops in Nunavut. We ...

Iceland & Norway on Viking Sky

We've wanted to visit these countries for some time and have enjoyed a Viking river cruise. In addition, we preferred to travel on a smaller ship, rather than a typical large ocean cruise ship. The Viking Sky has ...

Inaugural trip was less than ideal

This is a very hard review to write, because the ship has been designed to be to many things that are so different, which is difficult to achieve. The design has certainly tried to incorporate a high degree of ...

THE LAST CRUISE AND THE $22,000 COLDS by Strode Wallace

I did not know whether to title this review “The Last Cruise” or “The $22,000 Colds.” As much as we like Crystal, in 2018 I had booked a cruise on Pro-Iceland for a 7-day cruise of just Iceland. But in ...
