Very impressed with Viking Star and our Trip from Barcelona to Bergen
Destination: Europe - British Isles & Western
We have learnt some lessons about Shore Excursions and I note others have mentioned these in their reviews. There does need to be better organization of the Shore Excursions - the day we went in to London there was a mix up with Customs and passengers not standing in the correct line and as a result our bus left for London 45 minutes late which was unfortunate as it cut our time down in London. We agree with others that the three long days were Normandy - D Day Landings in very cold conditions but an excellent tour, Paris which was 2 and a half hours each way and a very good tour but long, and then London which was cut short because of passengers arriving late and in the end we only had about 45 minutes in London to do our own thing. The tours of Paris and London were very good though but we were pretty tired after those and would probably not do the long days again. We paid extra for a tour to Seville and we enjoyed that day and found plenty to do in the free time there on a beautiful day. We agree with others that there is no time to shop if you do tours and that was a bit disappointing. The included tours were OK - not very impressed with the Lisbon one - due to traffic and to some extent we wished we had just caught the shuttle bus and done our own thing there.
we loved both the pre cruise days in Barcelona and the post cruise time in Bergen, then on the train to Oslo which was a spectacular journey. The tour of Oslo was an included tour and was excellent. All in all our experience with Viking was excellent and we would certainly do another journey with them. Less
Cabin review: PV1 Verandah4020
Our cabin was beautiful. It was a lovely space - warm and cosy and spacious. Plenty of room for our clothes with the drawers and cupboard space provided. The bathroom was lovely and the shower was very good. We couldn't fault the staff who attended to our room twice a day - we felt very pampered by the staff.
