Excellent BEI Cruise, But Some Shortcomings

We thoroughly enjoyed our BEI Cruise. The Stateroom and ship were immaculatly clean and our stewards were amazing, so thanks Nur and Gerarde. The food at The Restaurant was excellent except for our last night. It was supposed to be lobster thermadore but it was just plain awful. Lobster thermidor is a French dish consisting of diced lobster meat stuffed into a lobster shell, topped with a ...

We are longtime customers of Viking, but this cruise was our most disappointing experience. The weather was awful and we were unable to dock at three ports, including Dublin. Reading other reviews it seems obvious that this is not unusual: almost no ships get into the Shetlands or Loch Ness, so why continue to incude them? To add to the problem,the captain closed the thermal spa for most of the ...

Horrible experience. Think twice before booking. Very expensive and we missed three ports because Viking was unable to dock the ship in the ports and unable yo tender guests to shore. They blamed it on the weather, however we found out from crew that they do not usually schedule the British isle cruise in April, due to rough seas and lower tides in ports. Crew also reported that Viking was using ...

Ambassador. Ambition. Iberian Treasures & Seville Fiesta We booked this cruise for several reasons. 1, to try Ambassador. 2, because it left from Bristol. 3, the Seville Fiesta was offered. 4, the price was right. At the time it was one of three we were looking into, (the other two were P&O) Part of the offer was free port parking at Bristol. Booked through Iglu. When the booking was ...

Best cruise ever (63 cruises, 54 on Celebrity, in the past 29 years)! First of all, what a pleasure to be on a ship with only 900 passengers versus the 2000-4000 passengers on previous cruises. If you like a peaceful, uncrowded, stress free cruise, then Viking is for you. We boarded in Tillbury, England, and from the start, the fantastic crew made us feel special. After a stop in Amsterdam, ...

This was our first Viking cruise - we've been on 11 other cruises with other cruise lines before we joined this Viking cruise. We booked a DV6 category cabin on deck 3 - right by the front elevators. We were extremely happy with the location of the cabin, and the cabin overall. We could have used a bit more storage in the cabin, but it was adequate. Everything about this cruise was top rate. ...

In Search of Viking Ocean

First Time Cruiser • Age 50s

Executive Summary. (If you are not an executive, skip this paragraph.) The itinerary was "In Search of the Northern Lights." We saw the Lights four times over three nights, so in a sense this was a successful cruise. However, although Viking does many things well, they failed in one very important component - they did not meet the expectations of my taste buds! The menus were good, but the ...

Before commenting on the cruise, a bit of advice. If you have booked a cabin and you are happy with the location, the favoured being midships, be careful to tick the no upgrade box. Why wouldn’t you want an upgrade? Two reasons, it isn’t an upgrade in reality, you are just moved, without your agreement, to an identical cabin on a higher deck. The sting in the tail is that it is likely to be to one ...

Embarkation: Apparently there was an issue with the gangway preventing the passengers departing from the previous cruise so we were kept waiting until gone 12 o'clock before anyone could board. Quite efficient otherwise. They collected our luggage from the waiting area rather than outside due to the issues from the last cruise. Cabins: We had 2 cabins. I had a Superior ocean view. ...

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 ...
