Visiting the Panama Canal was on my bucket list. Everything about the 11 days was an experience. The food at all of the venues I visited was superb. The chefs always presented such delicious fare; everything from shrimp, lamb, crab, burgers, The entertainment was varied and delightful. I attended all 3 different performances of the singers, who were excellent. The Viking band was talented, as ...

Great ship, great service, great rooms, great ports of call! This cruise had it all. First the ship is a perfect size, not too big not to small. Had all the facilities we needed (pool space, walking track, great spa, great entertainment, EXCELLENT rooms... Every room had a balcony! Had none of the things we didn't want (casinos, children, smoking, art sales), and the best thing is Viking does ...

We chose Viking based on ship size and destination. The Viking Star was beautifully appointed and the cruise staff extremely helpful and professional. We enjoyed every moment on board - every communal deck offered wonderful views, which we took full advantage of. It was nice to have the ability to go to a quiet place and read a book or enjoy coffee and pastries or be amongst a group of people to ...

We wanted to go to the panama canal and we chose Viking because of the size of the ship (930 passengers) and no children. After a rocky start with a name screwup we were able to correct the problem on board the ship. i had a heel problem and every day 2x a day our room stewards brought ice paks for me. The food onboard was magnificent with everything labeled what it was and if it had meat ...

Terrible ending for Cunard cruise

In May we boarded the Queen Elizabeth for a cruise from Fort Lauderdale to San Francisco. Only after we embarked did we discover that there were active cases of Covid on board. Mask wearing was poor, social distancing weak and, worst of all there was no control of passenger and crew freely exploring each port of call. In sharp contrast to a cruise, on the same ship, which we took in October 2021 ...

The cruise was going fine and we were celebrating my husbands 70th birthday. It all turned very sour when we both contracted Covid. I tested positive first and my husband 3 days later. It then became a very distressing experience. I was escorted to my isolation cabin, passing several other guests along the way. I was initially placed in an Ocean View cabin but eventually moved to a cabin with a ...

We returned home yesterday from QE voyage Southampton to San Francisco and had a wonderful time aboard. On arriving in Southampton at 12.15 as requested we were surprised by the number of passengers waiting for Covid testing. Obvious the stated time was not adhered to. However we were onboard and having lunch in the restaurant by 1.45pm. We were in Grills and had a lovely suite, plenty of ...

A Cautionary Tale

Recently my wife and I took a 28-day cruise from Southampton to San Francisco. Covid-19 dogged the entire 9,615 nautical miles of the voyage. Our troubles began even before we boarded Queen Elizabeth. Cunard demanded a certified negative antigen test dated no more than 24 hours before boarding. That meant finding a provider open on a Sunday – which we did eventually at a cost of £70. Not once ...

We chose this cruise because although we had sailed QM2 several times Transatlantic, we had never been on the QE. The dates fit our schedule—sail the QM2 over to Southampton, a week in England and sail the QE back Southampton to Fort Lauderdale. Our leg was the beginning of the QE’s longer leg, she will be sailing over a month, all the way to Alaska. My observations: Embarkation in Southampton ...

Cruising in a late-pandemic world

We were tired of staying home and have always loved Windstar. Although we were somewhat put off by the COVID restrictions imposed by CDC and other governmental authorities, foreign and domestic, on the cruise lines, we decided to give it a try. It was probably the best cruise we have ever taken (and that is a lot of cruises). We boarded after a mandatory COVID test and stayed in our cabin until ...
