The most fantastic cruise of our lives

I've seen some less than stellar reviews regarding the RC Western Mediterranean. If you will notice, most of the complaints seem to be focused on alcohol problems, and posted by alcoholics (IMHO). The Allure of the ...

A lot of hype, gimmicks and up-charges

We researched and studied for months before booking our honeymoon on the edge. Then we saved for 2 years to be able to do all the things we saw and believed off the marketing. Overall the ship was nice, crew was ...

Disappointing

We chose this cruise as Our 50th Wedding Anniversary celebration, we chose FO as it promotes itself as a family run concern, but they are only interested in making money. Most of our disappointment does not ...

A 'must do'

This cruise was chosen because our previous cruises to Norway with P&O had not gone as far north. Booking direct with Hurtigruten meant that we were covered by their travel arrangements eg charter flight to ...

First cruise. Exceeded expectations.

I have decided to write this review to help first time cruisers like myself decide if cruising is for them. There were a lot of reviews, especially about Aurora that were negative and we had no idea what to expect. ...

I got to see the wonderous northern lights and go on a reindeer sleigh ride.

Viking Star sailed to Norway above the Arctic Circle and gave us the opportunity to realize a dream and experience the northern lights. And we did see them--TWICE! We most enjoyed the optional excursion to visit ...

We were on MSC Fantasia in Oct 2019 for a 7-nights western Mediterranean cruise. This was our 5th cruise overall and 2nd on MSC. MSC Fantasia, by today's standards, is not a big ship. But make no mistake, it's ...

The ship is beautiful. New, lots of bars, modern and clean. Plus the port stop offs are lovely. Plenty of time to walk around. We do recommend purchasing shuttle buses at the port information desks rather than on ...

We had sailed on Viking Ocean on earlier occasions (Baltic and Caribbean) and knew that Viking had created a great cruise product with these ocean-going ships. So we chose the Northern Lights cruise so we could ...
