Nice ship but no tours for wheelchair passengers.

We chose this cruise to get some winter sun without needing to fly. The ship is fabulous and most of the staff were 2nd to none though we felt there could have been more staff especially in the Britannia restaurant ...

Beautiful ship, but not a 5-star cruise

We chose this cruise because of its itinerary. We cruised from Bergen to Montreal. To start with, we had booked air through the Viking Air department, something we will never do again. We had assumed they would be ...

I enjoyed it. My husband found it old-fashioned.

We chose this cruise because we had massive items to transport from US to Germany, and because I have a back problem. We booked a package that included 2 days at 5 star hotel on Times Square in NYC -- wonderful. ...

Mediocre at best

Having spent 28-days on a back to back cruise from Lisbon to Montreal, I am reflecting on a variety of mixed feelings about the Silver Muse and Silversea, in general. I tried to focus on the positive aspects of the ...

Luxury Cost Cutting?

A brand new ship. Cost cutting everywhere, from the plastic decor and "modern" drawerless cabin (really? there's no storage!) to the half a pattypan squash and two potato balls accompanying your dinner every single ...

The Viking Sky is indeed a beautiful ship, tastefully decorated with wonderful art. The common areas are inviting, especially the Explorers Lounge on the 7th deck, which offers fabulous ocean vistas. The ship is ...

Forget the Sirena; book a different ship

We chose the Sirena because of a very good price on a transatlantic cruise, and because we loved our cruises on the Oceania Nautica and Riviera. The Sirena, like the other two ships has an outstanding staff. The ...
