Review summary

During this time of Covid - we knew we were taking a chance - But we went on a Viking Ocean Cruise in Aug and with the precautions they had we felt it would be worth it ( we were celebrating with our son an his new fiancé) BUT Celebrity’s No Masks Required on the Ship was ridiculous! Safety was not what was observed and for this reason I would Not recommend spending all the money Plus the Extra Costs to enjoy the multiple specialty dining! Take a better Cruise line that cares more to keep everyone safe & cruising. So disappointed!

Port employees were great

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
Specialty Restaurants are Wonderful- But this ship is all about spending extra! Most are additional $55 per person each restaurant. So you are tempted with these wonderful experiences - but on avg for we spent $250 per person to enjoy these specialty dining. Why not just charge more for cruise so your not having to pay each time!

Onboard Activities

1 out of 5
We were in Retreat so Pool experience was nice - our adult child were not and the pool was so over crowded they could not get chairs. During Covid- thought ships were not supposed to be full? Worst pool experience we have seen on a ship!

Entertainment

3 out of 5
Some Good Entertainment and Some Bad New Years Eve in our favorite bar Eden had a trio that music was such a downer - very disappointing

Service and Staff

4 out of 5
Our room steward Rusian was Great and all service people in restaurants were Great - But not enough help in all the bars. You waited forever to get drinks. So purchasing the “premium liquor package “ is good - you just have to wait for much longer to be served

Ship Quality

4 out of 5
Beautiful Ship and very clean

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
Bed - extremely comfortable/ because the cost for cruise during holiday we decided to not get larger suite as we usually do ( cost was double price ) - but we felt this was very spacious for what we were expecting. Layout is very good

Ship tip

Only do Retreat if you want to enjoy pool - set up reservations prior in specialty dining. The Raw on 5 is wonderful & Steakhouse food is incredible ! Eden a really nice experience! But the Pizza in the back of the Cafe at night till 1:00am is the best and you don’t have to pay extra! Room Service is the worst

Ports of call

Ft. Lauderdale (Port Everglades), Florida

5 out of 5
