Viking Ocean Europe - British Isles & Western Cruise Reviews

Explorer Lounge: The last night, saying goodbye to a few of the crew that were just delightful (I wish I had a photo with some of the others; they were all great).
The Viking Jupiter at port in Greece.
Infinity pool at the back of ship, while docked in Istanbul.

Exceptional Excursions

This trip was postponed from over a year ago due to Covid. The excursions we were able to choose from were exceptional. We are history buffs, so being able to walk the beach of Normandy and Stone Henge was quite memorable. We were also able to explore Puerto by Segway. That was a new experience. We went into many ports that were small, so the towns were not over crowded with the exception of ...

This was our 7th cruise but the first one on Viking. We picked "Trade Routes of the Middle Ages" due to its 7-country itinerary and Viking's reputation for service. Viking impressed us in all areas and we'll definitely sail with them again in the future. Services: 1. We missed our flight connection in Amsterdam (AMS) partly due to our own fault getting lost and Viking Air giving us only a ...

We were looking for a child-free cruise and found this one. It turned out to be a lucky throw. We enjoyed every minute and have very little to complain over. If we should mention something it is lack of hooks in the cabin and the entertainment could perhaps be somewhat better. The band, do they enjoy their job? That was not our impression. This is only details but points for improvement. However, ...

The ship: A+. It’s gorgeous. Beautifully decorated and furnished. The common areas look like something out of a magazine. Lots of thought (and money) went into it. Stateroom was tight but adequate. The food: B. It was good, but not great. We’ve had better in mid-range restaurants. With the cafeteria-style World Café serving almost the same menu as the white tablecloth Restaurant, we found it ...

Perfect Viking Trade Routes Cruise

This cruise was chosen due to the exciting itinerary. We were especially interested in the Normandy Memorials near Le Havre, France; seeing Stonehenge, and Belgium. As always, this cruise came with a nice pre excursion in Oslo with the train ride over the mountain to Bergen. The train trip was awesome. AT this time of the year there was still some snow on the mountains which added to the "WOW" ...

From start to finish, every day, every moment, every port was incredible. The crew were always polite, attentive and focused to make us feel welcome, special, and make our trip the best ever. Our room steward (Kevin) was exceptional. The entertainment on board, especially Paolo, was remarkable providing great variety and range. One of the guest speakers, Mr. Alan Wright, was a terrific ...

Having traveled on more than 20 cruises, this was our second Viking cruise (before we had done the Baltic) so we had high expectations regarding the outcome of this trip. Despite our high expectations, this cruise exceeded them in all aspects, and it is precisely that combination of all aspects that allows us to live an unforgettable experience. I mean the sum of: quality of the boat, no noise, ...

Viking Mars Ship is a truly wonderful ship with a crew that will exceed your expectations! I would highly recommend you take advantage of all the entertainment venues. The entertainer’s where terrific! Don’t forget to check out the spa services or just relax in the spa pool. We really enjoyed the afternoon teas with all those great deserts. The explorer lounge is a great way to start your day with ...

We chose this cruise because we had always wanted to go to the British Isles, especially London and because once we sailed on Viking, we aren't interested in sailing other lines. The Venus was beautiful, elegant but not gaudy and the food and on-board services were excellent, as we have always experienced. We did miss one port, in Scotland, due to weather but since we had numerous Scottish ...

The best part of the trip was the ship Venus. I enjoyed all of the restaurants, opportunities for ship activities, and especially the very friendly staff. The food was excellent, the live shows were entertaining, and the staff continued to impress me with their attention to details in keeping me happy. The ship was kept very clean all the time. I felt very safe on board the ship. Our fellow ...
