Viking Helvetia

Sail date: May 01, 2010

Ship: Viking Helvetia

Cabin type: Oceanview

Traveled as: Large Group

Reviewed: 10 years ago

Review summary

The cabin was incredibly noisy, since we could everyone on the ship flush their toilets. We couldn't use the badly needed room heater at night, since it made cracking noises all the time. When we complained to the front desk, they did not solve either problem, so we ended up sleep deprived. The ship also had exhaust sucked into the ventilation system, so we smelled diesel exhaust, smoke, and even lighter fluid throughout the week! After 60 cruises in my life, this was the worst one by far.
