Lovely Viking cruise 6Debbie & 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 ...read 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.
We really enjoyed the cruise of the Mediterranean with Viking. The cabin with a small verandah was lovely. The meals were of high standard. The cabin crew and the dining room crew were very attentive and professional. The tours included were of high standard but had to be booked very early (as soon as they were opened on the internet) which left us ...read more no option but to book with local tours which we found were also of high standard.
