Great amenities let down by tired entertainment and bad meal times

Pros: • Amenities are top class, the indoor pool and included spa were brilliant and was often a highlight of the day. • Lounges and living room area were incredibly comfortable • Included afternoon tea was great • Decor of the ship is stunning • Staff are very friendly (maybe a bit too friendly on the first day but chilled out through the rest of the cruise) • World Table food ...

I should start this review by explaining that we have only ever cruised with Regent, Seabourn and Silversea before (and once in Cunard queens grill never to be repeated) so we have judged Viking by the standard we have become accustomed to on these cruise lines. This cruise was advertised in an email we received but not on the Viking web site and our travel agent advised (after calling ...

We chose this Viking cruise as we saw it offered and after many months of no travel due to COVID, it gave us the opportunity to be "pampered" even if the UK Scenic itinerary was largely the Irish Sea with 2 port stops. Also, after many years with Celebrity our line of choice, it gave us a change to experience something new (at a very reasonable price). We thoroughly enjoyed every moment of the ...

At last, after fourteen very long months we are back onboard a cruise ship, and whilst we are cruise veterans, we are Viking Virgins, and we were particularly excited to board the beautiful Viking Venus, a brand-new ship travelling round England from Portsmouth, on to Liverpool, the Scilly Isles, Falmouth, Portland and back to Portsmouth. Of course, because of Covid, things are a little bit ...

Fantastic ship - shame about the weather!

It was the first ship to sail from Portsmouth since lockdown and was Viking Venus' maiden voyage. The ship was only one third occupied, so never crowded. Can't fault facilities, food, entertainment and crew. Everything was perfect, except the weather. We rounded Land's End in a Force 8 and, sadly, had to miss out on visiting the Scilly Isles due to the rough seas. However, the ship was very stable ...

This was our first Viking voyage, having previously sailed mainly Cunard Queens Grill, Crystal and Regent. Also our first sailing after the lifting of Covid restrictions, so a little concerned about how restrictive everything might be. We couldn’t fault anything, from checkin at Portsmouth to arrival back in Portsmouth. Venus is very light and airy, the crew cheerful and helpful and the food ...
