We booked our cruise with Steve. Steve is the best. Every detail is done. When booking with Steve you can be assured he will take care of you. From booking the proper plane flight, to which side of the train to sit on for the best view. I don't know how he does this, but he does. Thanks Steve, you did it again! The other couple that traveled with us had plane flight problems. After seeing how Steve handled our trip, they will be using Steve on there next cruise. What can I say, Steve, you are the best!
Overall the Viking Homelands Ocean Cruise exceeded our expectations, which were very high to start with. The Viking pretrip to Iceland started off a little poorly when we were exhausted from our flight and couldn't get into our room for 5 and a half hours. I blame this on Viking. Iceland and its excursions was wonderful. My biggest negative of this trip was the horrendous flight arrangements made by Viking Air. Our flight times and number of connections were terrible and I would never go through Viking Air again. I would book my own flights with help from Affordable Tours.
We had a great experience on this entire package with Viking. Even the shore excursions were both interesting and enjoyable -- in every instance. We benefited from your onboard credit too! We booked another Viking tour while onboard -- and identified Robert as our travel agent of record. Thank you again. Harvey & Naomi
We highly recommend Viking Ocean cruises. The ship is beautiful with many inviting public spaces to socialize or just sit quietly to read. There are multiple dinning options, including 24 hour room service. We did not have any difficulties making reservations for specialty restaurants. The staff are all friendly and professional and no request is ever too big or too small. The theatre entertainers could be improved. We found the performances to be bit cabaretish.
Panoramic bus tours in traffic congested cities like Paris and London are not good experiences and should be discouraged.
Viking provides first class accommodation, gourmet dining, customer service/satisfaction. Daria, our local guide in St. Petersburg, Russia, is very knowledgeable, communicates warmth, respect and humor, contributing to an outstanding memorable cultural experience.
Although Viking has apparently cut off sizable cash rebates from travel agents, our cruise was before the change so, in addition to the service, we did well financially. I would have no problem booking any trip with Affordable Tours. The service is prompt and the delivery timely. Obviously I prefer to find a trip where I get a huge discount, but that is not the only reason to book.
Viking Sun is a beautiful ship. There hot tub, sauna, steam room facility is great. With a enclosed ice room. Great
A great ship, with a wonderful crew, delicious food and nice cabins.
This was a sensational trip. Upon boarding the ship in Rome we were surprised to get a cabin upgrade to Junior Suite. During the cruise we were able to utilize the onboard credit supplied by Affordable Tours to purchase a number of optional tours.
This was my second ocean cruise with Viking. There were a few glitches on this newly operational ship; not quite the same as our previous voyage. These were incidental issues, but noticeable.
Affordable Tours did an excellent job booking our cruise. The cruise was everything advertised and more! 5 star all the way around!
