Overall pretty good,but I've had better.

The price was good and the date fit our schedule. The cabins are in need of an update, but they are due for one shortly. The tv needs to be across from the bed, instead of at a weird angle. Our room attendant was ...

Highly disappointing

I was highly disappointed with this cruise. We had a wonderful river cruise with Viking; this was no where near the quality. The food was so-so. I had trouble finding options for gluten free, especially at lunch. ...

Baltic Cruise

In my opinion this cruise has one port missing. It arrives in Stockholm on a Friday, boarding is on a Saturday, then it leaves for Helsinki, following is 2 days St. Petersburg, then a short time in Tallin. The day ...

"The Old Boat"

Summary: This is a great ship for an old person who likes wine and doesn't care about entertainment. If this isn't you, it's not much fun. Also, by the time you add up the cost of airfare, all the excursions and ...

Not really a luxury cruise, food & service were average

This cruise company reminded me of driving a car but only getting to third gear. It could have been fantastic but there were some terrible instances of service and food. For instance, I sat next to pool on Sea day ...

Disappointed in excursions

I’ve always been interested in seeing the Baltic countries. That is why we choose this cruise. We came over a day early so we could see additional sites in Stockholm. Our plan was to leave Old Towne to do with ...

Customer service could be improved.

This was our second ocean cruise with Viking and we chose the Viking Homelands because of the amazing itinerary. We paid for the air plus but on the way back was not eligible for the transfer. They push everyone off ...

A highly anticipated cruise which turned out to be a mediocre experience

This cruise was in celebration of our 50 wedding anniversary. We had sailed a Viking river cruise and while the ocean cruise was considerably higher in price than other cruise lines based on our river cruise we ...

We chose this cruise because we wanted to visit Scandinavia, but not at the luxury level. We covered Stockholm, Copenhagen, Amsterdam, UK, France, Portugal and Spain, albeit for only a few hours each. Our Balcony ...

Hygiene???? No English?

Chose this cruise because of the ports it was visiting. Beautiful ship, although dated with some maintenance needed. Hygiene was not enforced, there were plenty of containers full of hand cleanser but rarely used. ...

Disappointing

Wonderful way to see Baltic, but disappointing.

Several friends had taken this Baltic cruise and raves about it. Chose Silver Spirit because it could dock in downtown St Petersburg (instead of naval marine terminal out of town). Embarking in Stockholm was a ...

Disappointing as ship is AGED and it also feels wrong in the common areas

This is an old design ship with no big comfortable areas for strolling and activities. Everything is in a specific area and feels old and claustrophobic. Its also an aged ship. Why would you choose such a ship when ...

Included excursions are just to take you to overpriced gift shops

Viking spends a lot of money on marketing and is indifferent to the travel experience of the guests. The only way to see the destinations is to purchase the high-priced optional excursions, as the included ...

Luxury encompasses the entire passenger experience. The physical environment of the ship is part of this experience, and the Seven Seas Explorer does present an environment that is richly decorated and often ...
