A great escape from the Covid gloom

Review for Viking Venus to Europe - All

The Covid-19 pandemic had caused the suspension of most cruises for around two years. So having sailed many times with Princess, P&O, Azamara, Regent and other cruise lines, we have been hoping for a cautious resumption. At the time of writing, the UK government allowed cruise ships to sail with no more than 1,000 passengers (or 50% capacity, whichever was less). So clearly, it would have been ...

Following an advertisement in the daily press we made a late booking just 3 days before departure. We sailed as Viking Virgins - around 100 of us in this category we were told, together with just over 200 previous Viking Explorers on board so the ship was barely a third full. Wonderful experience from start to finish. The care over our safety at a time when the delta Covid variant was in ...

First Time, Not The Last.....

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 ...

After 16 months of shielding with very elderly family, this was a mental health break for me alone. Yes there were limitations and requirements, the PCR test in the morning was a challenge but if thats what it takes to have this time on a lovely ship, with a great cabin and so very very well looked after - happy to do so. Crew were amazing, couldnt do enough for you, nothing too much trouble. ...

We had river cruised with Viking before so decided to give an Ocean Cruise a go. We could not fault the friendliness and politeness of the staff who I think outnumbered the guests on this cruise by roughly 400 to 300. What slightly took the edge off our enjoyment of the cruise was the fact that the crew had only been vaccinated once and even though we had had 2 jabs, our having to wear masks ...

Welcome Back cruise - and what a treat!

We were delighted to see the UK residents only Welcome Back cruises released. Everything about it was wonderful. We booked onto Viking Venus's second ever passenger voyage, which had her 'Godmother' Anne Diamond on board, and we loved it so much we went back and did it again on her 4th voyage. It was first class, Viking at its best. The crew were clearly delighted to be back, and loved being ...

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 ...

10+ Cruises • Age 60s

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 ...

Having experienced their river cruise previously, wanted to try the ocean version with Viking. I was not disappointed by the experience. I found the company extremely professional in their approach to just about everything. The organisation/logistics efficiently well managed. Catering on board....great choice of restaurants/food and beverages and wonderful crew service at all times. The cabin ...

Disappointing

We have done several Viking cruIses before so we were expecting more, The shore excursions were less than expected - even the extra cost ones were less than expected. The buses were full and uncomfortable. One couldn't even make it up the hill out of town and all the guide was worried about was if she was going to be back in time. The walk to the buses was long and over wet and slippery ...
