REVIEW FOR VIKING VENUS THROUGH CRUISE CRITIC This is our fifth journey with VIKING CRUISES, but this is our first time to try an Ocean cruise. My husband and I sailed the Bordeaux wine river cruise in 2017 with friends, the Danube and Rhine Christmas market river cruises in 2019 and 2021 to celebrate my birthday, the Lyon and Provence river cruise with friends in 2022. We thought River ...

Booked this cruise over a year ago to go in search of the northern lights. Relocation cruise prior to ours was cancelled due to an outbreak of gastrointestinal cases. This meant some hygiene restrictions were still in place for first few days. This did lead to some inconvenience and slow service. Some toilets were closed. After three days the restrictions were lifted and everything got back to ...

Poor service, poor ship

Review for a Arctic Cruise on Trollfjord

When reading the Hurtigruten publicity for the refitted Trollfjord you would expect to find an exquisite small cruise ship, what you get is an overcrowded cheaply converted coastal ferry. The standard cabins are small with low cost fittings. Our bathroom cabinet didn’t close and the shower fitting fell to bits. The bed was uncomfortable. Dinning was not the highlight one would hope for. ...

Swan Hellenic’s Arctic Expedition Sep-Oct 2023 My wife and I decided to do something different with cruising so we booked an Arctic Expedition on Swan Hellenic’s ship Vega. A smaller size new ship accommodating only 152 guests. This was a 16 day cruise along the Western coast of Greenland, crossing the Labrador Sea to Newfoundland/Labrador and ending up in Halifax. It checked off several ...

This last minute cruise was presented to us by a travel agent and the price was right for us so we jumped on it. Impartial information on the company was hard to find and some requests for info from the company were not as smooth as expected, but we eventually came around and felt comfortable enough to take a chance on them. It turned out to be a very good cruise. Pros: - Nearly everything ...

2-5 Cruises • Age 70s

We had been looking at Greenland trips, and when this one popped up with a great discount, we jumped on it. We were not disappointed in anything. The crew was amazing, the food was excellent, and the size of the ship was perfect for this type of trip. I believe the ship held up to 150 passengers, but there were only 39 signed up with 101 crew and 5 expedition leaders. The rooms were great and it ...

An Exceptional Experience

First Time Cruiser • Age 70s

The original inspiration for such a cruise was the itinerary, and to be honest, dealing with the Company beforehand was a little frustrating, but the cruise itself exceeded all our expectations. Every little detail was well planned by a very organized expedition and ship's crew and changes due to weather etc were executed brilliantly and expeditiously. The food and service was absolutely top ...

A not so prima Norwegian Prima....

10+ Cruises • Age 60s

We did not choose our 29th cruise because of the itinerary, but because we wanted to sail with the new NCL ship "Norwegian Prima". Boarding went smoothly without any waiting. First impressions were very good: modern looks, the corridors to the staterooms have a great "hotel feeling" and are very beautifully designed. The stateroom (balcony room) was the most spacious we ever had. Beautiful ...
