Good first cruise with Viking but food a disappointment

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 ...

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 ...

Review for Viking Venus to Europe - British Isles & Western

10+ Cruises • Age 60s

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 ...

Viking Venus: Return to Cruising

With little choice available to UK residents we decided to try the brand new Viking Venus. We were delighted with the week long cruise and everyone on Viking Venus really excelled. It all seemed very spacious. There were only approximately 230 passengers as it was their inaugural cruise but with such an excellent choice of lounges and public areas etc it probably never feels ...

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 ...

Another family member had booked this cruise and we decided to TAG along. The food was excellent and well prepared and served. The workers at the buffet and the staff couldn't have been nicer and friendlier. The two girls that serviced our stateroom were a delight. Couldn't do enough for us and were very friendly. The entertainment was excellent for a smaller ship with less room to put on ...

We have cruised on many ocean cruises with other cruise lines. Having done River Cruises with Viking we decided to try their ocean cruises. We had been to all the countries on the Middle Ages Route except Portugal and Spain. The price of the cruise was good, the itinerary was interesting and included several ports we had never been into, love Viking services, so seemed a good fit. It was excellent ...

We like traveling in the fall. This cruise went at the right time and to places we haven’t visited before. Having loved The Grand European Viking river cruise we wanted to try an ocean cruise. We loved it! It was exciting to travel from Norway to Barcelona. Each country along the way was wonderful! Customer service was great from our room steward, the waiters, to the staff of guest services. The ...

A Great Cruise on a Beautiful Small Ship

2-5 Cruises • Age 70s

We chose this cruise for three reasons. The itinerary offered us a chance to see the peripheral sites of the British Isles without changing lodgings frequently. We wanted to avoid the large cruise ships. We also wanted a cruise that offered a wide selection of shore tours. Viking offered all of this at a reasonable price. The flexible dining options were also a bonus. We preferred the ...

We choose the British Isles Cruise because we have always wanted to experience all that England, Scotland and Ireland. This was the best way to see them all! We plan on going back to each country! The tours were great and each tour we took offered accurate facts and the stories were filled with interesting stories. Our cabin was on the 6th level and had a spacious balcony and the room was ...
