Latest Reviews What our clients are saying about their journeys providing the opportunity to view the Northern Lights

Viking Northern Lights Cruise London to Bergen   , QLD, Australia, Feb 2023
Unfortunately, the cruise started 2 days late which resulted in missing the ports of Amsterdam & Navrik. The food and wine selections were good, and the Verandah cabin was comfortable with a glass enclosed shower, opening door and a window. Not a lot of activities during sea days. They concentrate more on lectures with three lecturers' being on board more for the 10-day cruise. No kids no casinos were a bonus.
Lovely Viking cruise   , 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 more 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 definitely recommend doing a Viking cruise. Yvonne from Global Journeys organised our tour, she did a great job.
