“Lovely Viking cruise”
Debbie & Murray - SA, Australia Jun 2019
We recently travelled on the Viking Jupiter from Bergen, Norway to Greenwich, London. Our cruise ship was almost brand new, we had a very spacious room, staff were lovely and friendly, meals of very good quality. The scenery along the coast of Norway was stunning. The optional excursions in each port were a little disappointing, not a lot to see or do in some of the ports and we had to use tender boats in most of the ports which was quite annoying. All in all though, a very good cruise, would ...read more

“Excellent cruise on Viking Sky, a lovely ship”
Geoff & Nicole - NSW, Australia Jun 2019
First time we have sailed with Viking and will do so again if the right itinerary comes along. There seemed to be plenty of space on the ship. Entertainment was excellent and food was good. Met some lovely people on the cruise.

“Fabulous Vikings Homelands Cruise”

We were spoilt all the way. Our stateroom was beautifully appointed. The food was excellent and the shore excursions were wonderful and so well organised. Beautiful ship Viking Sun, and the Nordic feel is very special. Great entertainment as well. The Spa is outstanding. Looking forward to another cruise ...read more

Doing cruises can be a scary idea if the idea of hordes of travellers focused on eating and drinking and being oblivious to their surroundings does not appeal. But the G Expeditions trips which focus on the Arctic and Antarctic are really very different. The boat takes a limited number of passengers, the expedition team are focused on providing technical insights to the fascinating culture, history and environment, and everyone gets to experience places that are far outside of the territory large ...read more
