What our clients are saying about their cruises around the Arctic, Baltic and Scandinavia
“Fabulous Vikings Homelands Cruise”
We thoroughly enjoyed our two week Homelands cruise with Viking. From the moment we boarded this small ship we immediately felt the luxury, and the attention given by Viking staff was outstanding. 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 and will certainly book again with Global Journeys. Jemma organised everything so efficiently, booking good flights and attending to all my requests promptly. Our next trip will be even more relaxed knowing we will be looked after so well.
“A most outstanding adventure - most highly recommended ”
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 boats can travel. There are ample opportunities to engage in active treks along the way, and to explore on one's own some of the fascinating ports. We really enjoyed the trip, enjoyed the insights from the daily technical talks and from the on-location local guides at the various stops. The trip is good value for a 14 day voyage, accommodation is perfectly adequate, and catering excellent. The G Adventures team on board and the ship's crew are very professional and competent. We recommend the tour very highly.
“Happy sailing with Viking”
The cruise was everything we had hoped for. The ship was beautifully presented with many areas to relax and enjoy the scenery. The food and service in the World Cafe was exceptional. Housekeeping was also exceptional with friendly staff who were always there to assist. The Port Talks were very useful and informative and we recommend guests attend them to get the most from their shore excursions. Once again Global Journeys were great and we look forward to booking further cruises with them.
“Viking Ocean Adventures”
Great cruise, one of the best we have done. Our booking, Viking Sky, the food, the ports, the crew, the cabin were all excellent.
