Wonderful cruise   , NSW, Australia, Sep 2023
I would recommend this cruise. Iceland was an amazing destination. Happy with Princess. Even though Island Princess is one of their older ships I have no complaints.
An Arctic cruise that ticked all the boxes.     , VIC, Australia, Jul 2023
Firstly, thank you to Georgie, who again helped us with the planning of this holiday and was always quick to answer any queries. We chose this cruise because of the itinerary and weren't disappointed. We got to sail 81 degrees north and see puffins, arctic terns, walrus and polar bears in their natural habitat. The ship was brand new and at first ...read more we thought it a bit too "glitzy" but we came to like its varied spaces, lighting, décor and the many dining options. The food and service was outstanding, and our deluxe veranda suite very comfortable.

Our only gripe was the flight from Oslo to Longyearbyen. We were divided into two groups, one group had a chartered direst flight to Longyearbyen and were served a meal. We were on a much longer, regular SAS flight which flew via Tromso, requiring us to go through security and immigration again. Any food or drink required payment, including water. We arrived at the ship much later in the afternoon than the other group.
Viking cruise, Iceland   , VIC, Australia, Jun 2023
We are frequent travellers, been to over 70 countries, but Iceland is different. It is a small countries with under 370,000 people, very friendly, easy going population. It is geologist’s heaven, you can see all kinds of earth activities. The capital Reykjavik is fairly small, with 2 main streets where restaurants and souvenir shops are. Perlan Museum ...read more is a must, a great place to introduce one to the landscapes of Iceland. We enjoyed the Sky Lounge spa very very much, better than Blue Lagoon. Viking cruises are always comfortable, understated elegance. The week we were there, June 26 - July 3,the weather was cold, wet and windy.
Beautiful Iceland Cruise   , NSW, Australia, Jun 2023
Our Viking cruise around Iceland didn’t disappoint. Every port was absolutely beautiful and sometimes we felt we had the place to ourselves. Thank you Tracey and team for many changes to this booking through Covid.
