Great ship, food and staff. Would have been a 5 star experience if the music had been turned down to normal! The sound in the theatre and all entertainment areas was so loud it was distorted. Several times we left ...

If you feed them they will come.

We chose this cruise because of the places this ship docks and the fact there is an included shore excursion in all ports. Entertainment is not an import criteria for us as we reside in the Big Apple where we have ...

First (and Last?) Cruise

I was part of a larger group, booked via Globetrotter so I really did travel with Costa by my own choise. (Aktiespararna, where I´m a member, had a 50 year anniversary cruise.) • The cabin was really ...

So What's New?

The rather delightful cruise was bookended by a flight itinerary that was nothing short of a nightmare. Viking created the problem by not allowing enough time to make international connecting flights on both the ...

Lovely Holiday

A last minute booking, but having been on Costa ships previously I had a good idea of what to expect. I liked the fact that there were only 13 English passengers on board and lots of interesting people to meet from ...

There's great POTENTIAL here.

Well, this is going to be one difficult review to write, as more than half of our cruise was cancelled by Viking on account of mechanical problems with our Ocean Cruise ship, the Star. It was to be a "trip of a ...

The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

I'll be writing this review in 2 segments. First, a quick overview and then a detailed review of the ports and details of the cruise. The Good: Our cabin. We were in 9656, a 2 bedroom family suite. The ...

Itinary was great

This was the cruise I wanted to take, it offered the most time in St. Petersburg and you are going to need it. All the other ports of call were wonderful and just beautiful. I am a Royal Carribean loyalist. I like ...

Good, Except for Food

The itinerary of this cruise was excellent with only one day at sea. Now to the part that explains why my rating was only 3 stars. The food in the dining room and the Windjammer were adequate at best. Please ...

Ho-Hum Trip Despite Beautiful Ship

We sailed on the Viking Star for the Homelands tour. As with any trip, there were positives and negatives. The biggest positive was the Star itself. It was fun being on a new ship and it really is beautiful with ...

My expectations were too high.

My husband and I paid for this trip two years in advance so we, along with most of the other passengers we talked with, felt like we paid for this ship. Our expectations were that this was an expensive trip that ...

Viking Customer Service Is Deplorable!!

This is a beautiful ship with very good food and amenities. Disappointed that the"Snow Room" was merely a cold room with frost and the Steam Room was out of service for the entire cruise. The staff, with the ...

Brilliant destinations contrasted by absolutely woeful service.

This was our fourth family cruise with Royal Caribbean (RCI) and we were all super excited about exploring the Baltics on ‘Serenade of the Seas’ 05-12 July, 2015. Opting for the extra acreage we had booked ...

RCL is cutting corners!

Went on a cruise July 12 -19 with Serenade of the Seas Baltic Cruise, and I must say RCL is slipping. I did the BOGO special, however they over charge you for everything: Mixed drinks $12.50 (They were $6.75 to ...

Having been on Viking's River Cruises, this ocean trip was very disappointing

I am afraid that it is unlikely that I will consider Viking for another ocean trip after my experience here. Whilst the experience was not awful by any stretch of the imagination, it was not anywhere near as good as ...
