A fun time was had by both my wife and myself

Review for a Baltic Sea Cruise on Spitsbergen

Hebridean trip 2024
2-5 Cruises • Age 64s

I found the whole experience was absolutely brilliant. The Crew were all great, from the Captain, Terje, all the way down. The Expedition Team, lead by Regine, were all equally knowledgeable, patient and helpful . From Jakob on geology to Laurence on Scottish history and songs ( which I really liked ) It would be unfair to pick out a particular individual. A great time was had by ...

Scottish Islands - delighted

Review for a Europe - British Isles & Western Cruise on Spitsbergen

Bill of Oxford
6-10 Cruises • Age 77s

The HX website was not easy to use and did not provide a means of pre-booking excursions; some which I would have chosen to go on were booked out. The cruise started from and ended in Greenock (calling that Glasgow is misleading). Check-in was easy and welcoming. The free jackets were good - but the time to pick them up ended at 15:30, our first boarding time - but an extra session was ...

good but needs improvement.

Review for a Canada & New England Cruise on Viking Polaris

2-5 Cruises • Age 83s

Everything was great except for the ship credit. we signed up for 3 new trips & got ship credits that we were not able to use as there was not any thing we wanted to use it on this trip & was not able to have it credited to the next trip which would have been better as this will be a longer trip & much more informative. we also were not informed that this credit had to be used on this trip & ...

Great, scenic, but slow paced journey (age 20s).

Review for a Norwegian Fjords Cruise on Richard With

First Time Cruiser • Age 29s

I'm writing the review that I would have wanted to see myself. Will state upfront I did this cruise to celebrate my 29th birthday across 12 days. If you are "young" and think it would be awkward to go on this cruise, GO! Don't let thoughts about awkwardness make you hesitate and don't think abut that too much. I am someone who had some terrible experiences on land tours and I'm trying cruises, ...

Best ship and trip, just do it

Review for a Galapagos Cruise on Celebrity Flora

First Time Cruiser • Age 68s

This ship is near to perfect as any we have been on. Nearly as many crew as passengers. Great service. Great food. Ship is small and easy to get around. Common spaces are comfortable and not crowded feeling. Marina for getting on an off zodiac tenders is perfect. Very safety minded touches. Snorkeling is safe. And magnificent. Naturalists are great at finding wildlife and explaining things in an ...

Extremely disappointing

Review for a Asia Cruise on Le Jacques Cartier

Michael and Jenny B
2-5 Cruises • Age 68s

Excursions were poorly organised with expedition staff admitting they had not been to most of the locations. Very poor information provided as to what we were meant to experience. Probably ok if you are a French passenger, otherwise expect to be treated like a second class citizen. Food and wine only fair throughout the 7 days. Only 2 eating places on board. Waiters knew little about wine offered ...

A Memorable Viking Experience

Review for a Canada & New England Cruise on Viking Polaris

2-5 Cruises • Age 65s

This was our first cruise with Viking, and it was very memorable, The ship is impressive. The decor is attractive and comfortable. None of the public spaces ever seemed crowded; we could always find space to relax, either alone or with friends. The food was delicious and plentiful. We had no trouble getting reservations on board for Manfredi’s or The Restaurant where we dined several times, ...

Great experience

Review for a Galapagos Cruise on Galapagos Seaman Journey

10+ Cruises • Age 58s

We were on a 5 day/4 nite cruise in late March, which worked out to an afternoon on San Cristobal, three days on the ship, and an early visit to the Charles Darwin Research Station on Santa Cruz before driving to the Seymour airport on Baltra for a 9:45am arrival. The ship is run extremely efficiently - the crew of 8 (plus guide) have things working like clockwork and they were a great team. We ...

18-day South America Cruise with Unexpected Ending

Review for a South America Cruise on Viking Octantis

10+ Cruises • Age 25s

My husband and I took Viking Octantis’ repositioning cruise in March – going from Valparaiso (Chile) to Fort Lauderdale (Florida). This is Viking’s expedition ship and can accommodate only 378 passengers. We like the small size of this ship because it allowed us to walk anywhere without having to take elevator and the staff to passenger ratio was great! We got to know many staff members and ...

Fantastic Flora and Galapagos

Review for a Galapagos Cruise on Celebrity Flora

First Time Cruiser • Age 67s

The trip to Galapagos exceeded my expectations. We chose the 10 day vacation with pre and post cruise stays in Quito. Celebrity representatives met us at the airport and everything went smoothly. JW Marriott was beautiful although we didn't have much time to explore. We arrived late the first night and took a taxi (Celebrity called for us) to a restaurant for lunch to meet our group. Missed tour ...
