Review for Scenic Eclipse to Europe - Western Mediterranean

We have been on the Athens to Malta and Malta to Lisbon cruise from 31st of May to 18th of June 2022 (booked in 2016 for 2017!!!) Here just a quick report about the Scenic Eclipse. We are not so happy with the Scenic Eclipse. I had a bad accident when I had to evade another person in the corridor and bumped into a handrail that was sticking out. The Scenic Eclipse is a great ship but has ...

This was our fourth Viking cruise. As all the outers have been, everything was perfect except for light rain one day (can't have sunshine all days). This area from Budapest to Bucharest is stunning. The included tours were wonderfun, informative and the people were very friendly. Except for an occational group of school children on a day outing, there were no crouds. Prices in souviner shops, ...

Visiting Eastern Europe and Germany was a bucket list vacation for my husband and I. The entire 23 day experience was amazing. The cuisine on board was top notch which often featured local dishes where we visited that day. Tours were led by informative tour guides. Quiet boxes were provided to each guest daily which proved very useful in a noisy tour setting. We enjoyed various kinds ...

Review for La Belle de l'Adriatique to Mediterranean

The La Belle de L'Adriatique is a old vessel with a capacity of 150 passengers. We cruised the Adriatic Sea from Dubrovnik to Naples. I would not recommend this vessel for those expecting a luxury cruise. I think the European market is a better fit, but not for the American cruiser that expects a certain standard. The lounge on this vessel is the ugliest I have ever seen on a cruise ship. ...

I wanted a small ship experience and I was also keen to try out a French ship - I was travelling with my children and they all learn French at school and I thought it would be a good chance for them to practice with natives! And this was a family sailing too, so I thought there might be some other kids on board for them to befriend. In the event there weren't many other children (though there were ...

Beautiful Boat, Horrible Food, Rude Service

Review for Amadeus Queen to Europe - Western Mediterranean

User Avatar
6-10 Cruises • Age 60s

The Queen is lovely, but the food and service is very low. Examples: The purser has no one and two dollar Euros for you to pay guides with. They had 30 cents, Euro, for the entire boat and would not ever tell you if they would be getting more. The check in people are rude, even a bid mean, and love to tell you no to even the simplest request. Most of the help is from Romania, but it felt very old ...

This is the first time i've been on an extended cruise across the Mediterranean Sea. It was a very memorable one which is why i'm looking forward for more cruises to join. There is great variety in the food served and the quality is good. It catered to various folks of a diverse age from all walks of life. Dining arrangements and decorations were excellent. The staff were warm and friendly. The ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 80s

We wanted to see the cities on the itinerary. We found the easy walking group catered for our needs and the guides were all excellent and very informative. The dining facilities were very good with well balanced meals and a second option for breakfast and lunch if needed in a quieter environment. The main dining room in the evening with over 180 passengers was impossibly noisy and it was ...

Review for Emerald Sky to Europe - Eastern Mediterranean

User Avatar
2-5 Cruises • Age 70s

My husband and I wanted to see Eastern Europe. Our stay at the Sheraton in Bucharest was good also the tour of the City. The Sky Emerald was a very well designed ship very contemporary design with clean lines, which we loved, however the cabin space was small and not enough room to hang our clothes. On the other hand there were ample spaces in the very deep drawers. Another minus for us was ...

Review for Viking Gullveig to Europe - Eastern Mediterranean

User Avatar
2-5 Cruises

This was our third Viking cruise and we've signed on for a fourth in 2018. We fine the balance between water travel and shore visiting much better than ocean cruises. We like the small ships and the congeniality on board at meals and in the evening. While we encountered low river depth on one of our previous cruises, Viking covered it gracefully and we never really noticed the issue. We did ...
