Our trip began with a three-day pre-cruise in Tuscany which set the mood for the entire trip. About thirty folk made a similar choice for the pre-cruise, and we were located in a beautiful old villa set amongst vineyards and olive trees. ... Read more

We chose this cruise as it coincided with another vacation to Malta we had planned. Sadly the cruise itinerary was changed eliminating the Turkish destinations. The service always seemed to be behind, and even much cheaper cruise lines ... Read more

I experienced my first Viking cruise in September 2016. A Mediterranean luxury cruise was on my bucket list, and since my husband wasn't interested in going, I went with a group of friends. It was so spectacular, and I waxed poetic about ... Read more

Orignally supposed to visit Istanbul. Ports were changed and others added, yet-It is possibly the best way to see the Adriatic. There was an outbreak of norovirus on the 2nd to the last evening which was made evident by the Captain's ... Read more

We chose this cruise because it sailed the time of year that fit our schedules, traveled to ports we were interested in visiting and the price was right. We expected smooth seas and nice accommodations. What we didn't expect was the ... Read more

We chose this cruise because of the itinerary and the great price. We have cruised 15 other times but never on Viking, although we have seen their ships on our 2 river cruises on another line. I found that dealing with them that ... Read more

We have done two Viking River Cruises and decided to try one of the ocean ships. We went to Venice, Italy three days in advance to help us to acclimate to the time difference from the USA. What a hotel! The Hilton Stucky was really lovely, ... Read more

Our experience generally mirrored those of the other Viking Sea reviews. Here's the notable highlights and (very few) lowlights: Outstanding Aspects: The Cruise Director, Heather Clancy, is exceptional. The best one we've ever ... Read more

The trip was fantastic. The ship was beautiful and the crew were amazing. We had an awesome waiter the first night so we asked for him for the rest of the trip. Darko was his name so if he's on your ship ask for him. The food was out of ... Read more

This was an opportunity to see most northern Mediterranean ports in one cruise. We combined a cruise from Barcelona to Venice with a follow on cruise from Venice to Athens -- 21 days in total. Viking provided a great ship (Viking Sea), ... Read more

Like most of the the people on our Viking Sun cruise, we had previously sailed on a Viking river cruise, and because we were more than satisfied with that cruise we were willing to try one of Viking's "ocean" cruises. The quality ... Read more

I chose this cruise because of the itinerary which included Tunis and Algiers. This brand new ship is spectacular and the service & food was wonderful. My only complaint is that the entertainment in the lounges before dinner and the ... Read more

We wanted a smaller ship without a lot of kids. Plus the cruise we chose visited the ports we wanted to see. It all fell into place. Crew to guest ratio was almost 1:1 (I would guess 5:7). Food was excellent; unusual and expertly prepared. ... Read more

We chose a February cruise so we wouldn't have to deal with a mass of tourists. Luckily for us, the weather was picture perfect each day with blue skies and mild temps. Unfortunately during our pre-cruise days in Rome my passport and ... Read more

This was my spouse and my second cruise aboard the Viking Sea in four months. We had such a wonderful time on the first cruise, we couldn't resist the promotion to take another. The Viking Sea is like a luxurious boutique hotel on the ... Read more

This was my first cruise. I chose it primarily because it stopped at cities I wanted to see, but the ship itself and the crew made it extra memorable. My husband and I are 55-65 and in decent health/mobility but not active athletes. I had ... Read more

Several years ago, we wanted to try a "something different" type vacation and chose to do a river cruise. We chose Viking Cruise Line and the Danube River. They "wowed" us !! Would history repeat itself if we ... Read more
