Review for Norwegian Jade to Mediterranean

Great experience on the NCL Jade, so we thought we’d try this one. The Positives - The rooms are fantastic, best standard room I’ve been stayed in. The bathrooms are spacious and very nice. Embarkation was also top notch. Staff - They are trying very hard, there are just either not enough of them or they are unprepared to handle the number of passengers (referring to dinning and ...

A Very Ordinary Experience

Review for Viking Venus to Mediterranean

This was our second Viking Ocean cruise and we have done multiple Viking River cruises. Although our first Viking Ocean cruise a few years ago was disappointing, we wanted to give Viking another try. Unfortunately, our low expectations were met on this cruise too. This was the first Viking Ocean cruise for the others we were traveling with and they were similarly "underwhelmed." The best part ...

We cruised with Viking from Athens to Istanbul. Our experience far exceeded our expectations. Everything was so outstanding that we've signed up for two more trips - one ocean and one river. The accommodations, the staff, the staff, the entertainment, the Port Talks, etc etc could not have been better. This company understands client service and logistics as good as any. Plus, they have a spa on ...

Ancient Mediterranean Treasures - Just past the end of the tourist season.

We chose this cruise because of some of the excursions offered. All were of particular interest to us. In order: 1) Athens, Greece: Acropolis, Agora, Athens Flea Market (saturdays), and all of the little but ancient Greek and Byzantine churches. We did not actually participate in the standard excursion but did "our own thing" while in Athens. The stay at the Athens Marriott was nice, the ...

We chose this cruise because we had always wanted to visit Greece and Turkey. This was our first Viking cruise, and we were so impressed with the level of detail in every regard and how perfectly everything was coordinated. The embarkation and debarkation experiences were simple and well-coordinated. Transfers were easy and we felt well looked after. The on-board dining was really ...

We chose this cruise based on a) the itinerary's final port of call to Troy and b) the fun time we experienced with Viking on our East Europe River Cruise. The ship was as elegant and huge as any ship of its class with which we have sailed on numerous other cruise lines. Plenty of beautiful, quiet and very comfy seating areas. The staff onboard were very approachable, and always respond with a ...

Good cruise experience, but Viking's standards are slipping

We sailed onboard Viking Venus on 4th November 2022 for the 'Ancient Mediterranean Treasures' itinerary. We have sailed with Viking before (both river cruises and an ocean cruise), but I have to sadly report that Viking's high standards are slipping to make them comparable to cheaper cruise lines. Issues experienced were: 1) Poor service. On a daily basis we had to find waiters to serve us. ...

Two of my sisters, my oldest niece and I started our planning for this cruise almost two years to the day of sailing with the original embarkation date of March 2022 to celebrate my 65th birthday. But since COVID was still active, we decided to not risk it and cancelled our original dates and went in October. We could not have had a better time and we were not disappointed. We had a travel agent ...

This is my second cruise with Viking. My first was a river cruise, this was an ocean cruise. I like each for it's own reasons. Giving this a 4/5 because while everything was very nice, I felt the excursions to be a little boring and monotonous. The tour guides were mostly good and interesting, but every tour was similar, and you had to pay serious upgrade fees to get something ...

We have sailed Vikining before on a river cruise to the Bordeaux region, six years ago. We've wanted to be able to travel on their cruise ships ever since. It took some time to be able to save up enough money to take the trip. It was everything and more in terms of the quality of the ship, staff, and services. The excursions were also amazing. I'd recommend this trip to everyone. One issue, ...
