18 Day Voyage of the Vikings

Choose this cruise for its itinerary. Ireland / Iceland / Greenland, wow. All cruises have their plus and minuses. Major plus was the limited passengers (under 1700), and the route. Minuses was the disappointment in the food. Signature suite 6055 was nice and roomy. Entertainment good, services great (go find David in the Oceans Bar for the 4-5pm happy hour, he has great ...

As always, this review will try to focus on the little things that might be missed, along with the details that may be overlooked in a broader review. This is especially true for the independent travelers who may wander off and do things on their own in each location. Rotterdam Pre -cruise/ Embarkation: We flew into Amsterdam and took the train to Rotterdam. Sine there were four of us, I took ...

Mini Voyage of the Vikings

Ten years ago, 2009, my very first longer cruise was the HAL Voyage of the Vikings. It was 35 days RT from Boston on the Maasdam. It was exciting, and being from Florida, a real delight to escape the heat and see the North Atlantic. So when I wanted to go back and do it again, I found that this cruise had become one of HAL's favorite and pricest itineraries, too rich for my travel budget. ...

Better to Call the Ship the Rottingdam

We took the 18-day voyage from Rotterdam (coincidence) to Boston. The crew were great. The dining room food was fabulous. The ports of call were wonderful. But when it rained, the roof over the Lido deck leaked like a watering can. There were plumbing issues all over the ship, with leaks, toilets not working (ours stopped working 5 times) and hot water not available in some cabins at times. Cabin ...

This was our 30th cruise, and our 4th time on HAL. We chose this cruise/crossing since we had spent a month in Amsterdam and needed to get back to the States. The Iceland and Greenland ports were also attractive. We loved the extra space and design in our Neptune Suite, plus the additional Neptune features such as the lounge where we often got breakfast and received the friendly attentive ...

Ship out the staff

The staff was the staff that answers your call from your credit card company. Staff: poor attitude, does the least Food: redundancy - bland, fried, salty, boxed, canned and not labeled with ingredients. Lots of nuts everywhere and same tongs for near multiple items. Food stations: salad bar, pasta bar & omlet bar: only one person one station and have you waiting for food for over 20 ...

This was a bucket list cruise for us, with St. Petersburg as our main destination. We had not used HAL before, so all we had to go on were comments on CC and other places Overall, it exceeded our expectations in most areas. Embarkation - We left from Rotterdam; getting on was smooth and well organized.We got to the port around 10:30; by 11:30 we were boarding and our cabin was ready. We had ...

Wonderful Cruise

10+ Cruises • Age 60s

This is a smaller ship than we are used to and find that the activities on the ship are not as good as the slightly larger ships. We stayed in Rotterdam for a few nights prior to our cruise and it was great. Our hotel was next to the cruise terminal which was very convenient for embarkation day. Embarkation was not as smooth as others that we have done, could be improved. Disembarkation was ...

Great itinerary, great crew, so-so ship

10+ Cruises • Age 40s

This cruise is about the unique Itinerary, and I think our captain did a great job getting us into Greenland and in/ around some bad weather. Greenland was beautiful, most of us agreed that cruising Prince Christian Sound was our favorite day, but getting off and seeing a town was also a special event. (We missed one Greenland town due to weather). The crew was mostly energetic, ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 50s

This was the second cruise I booked with HAL. I really enjoyed my first cruise which was also on the MS Rotterdam. Besides, this cruise had an overnighter in Stockholm, so when the price dropped a little in november 2017, I made my booking. Embarkation and disembarkation went very smoothly, no problems at all for me. My cabin was cabin 2517, a cabin with portholes instead of a window. I had ...
