Excellent Cruise on Encore

Review for Seabourn Encore to Mediterranean

This was our first cruise on Seabourn and it was excellent. A week from Athens to Athens with a port of call each day in the Greek Isles and Turkey. The Encore is immaculately maintained and clean. We had excellent service from very friendly staff. Excellent food in the The Restaurant and The Thomas Keller Grill. The entertainment was excellent. Seabourn put on an evening concert in the ...

Highly Anticipated, Sadly Disappointed.

Silversea has always been seen as the pinnacle of cruising. As it's branded as "ultra-luxury" we've waited a long time to be able to sail and with great anticipation. We found this amazing 7 night Greek Isles & Turkey itinerary and had to book it right away. We did our research, read reviews, joined even joined the informal group on Facebook to read about what to expect. It all sounded so amazing: ...

The positives - Food and wait staff very good, they really made the cruise - Itinerary was good, longer in some ports would be better and could be managed better than what they did - Embarkation was a breeze as was de-embarkation, very seamless process - Good size suite, very spacious - entertainment was good The negatives - Cruise director was out of her depth, little ...

7 nights from Athens to Barcelona. Boarding in Athens - hot! Now yes - it’s Greece in the middle of summer - however the terminal is a huge marquee. There were air con units but they were not really making much difference. If we had been able to board at our allocated time then we would not have been there long, but everyone seemed to think they can just turn up when they want and Princess ...

This was a 15-night cruise from Athens to Athens, via Istanbul. (Somehow, CruiseCritic did not list that as an option.) We were originally booked on a 15-night cruise from Athens to the Black Sea via Istanbul, but the itinerary was changed due to the war in Ukraine. (Thanks, Russia...) And then Silversea split it into two legs -- with most of the passengers being on the full 15 nights, but ...

We loved the Viking Danube river cruise we went on in May 2018 and chose the 7 night Ancient Mediterranean Cruise as our first post-COVID cruise. Although we felt overwhelmed by the long airport check-in lines we got to Athens and checked in the Viking Sky after nose swabs. Thanks to Viking hosts at Athens our embarkation went without a hitch. Our portside aft deluxe verandah #3068 was ...

We recently travelled with NCL, prior the cruise I called three different times to cofirm if we needed an PCR test, every time, even a week before the crusie, we were advise yes and this needed to be within 72 hours before sailing. I board a professional lab to do this for us. Basically I wanted it doinf professionally as I did not want it getting lost in the post, or us not doing it right. ...

Couldn't fault this cruise - great value for money

I couldn’t fault this cruise line and I have cruised on Viking, RC, NCL and Celebrity lines in the past. Reading other reviews I was expecting the ship to be worn and tired and found this not to be the case. Whilst it doesn’t have all the bells and whistles of some of the larger ships, being a smaller ship made it a much more personal trip and very good value for money. It was spotlessly ...

After waiting for 2 years because of the pandemic, we enjoyed every single day on our Viking Mediterranean cruise. The staff and team at Viking provided an experience that exceeded all our expectations. The food, entertainment and activities made this cruise even more special. Like everyone else we were concerned about Covid before our cruise. Once we boarded, we never gave it another ...

We travelled on Viking Sea, Empires of the Mediterranean, from Athens to Venice departing 15th June, and also booked the two nights pre-cruise stay in Athens. This was our first Viking cruise, albeit postponed twice due to the pandemic. We are fairly experienced cruisers, and tend to favour lines such as Azamara and Celebrity. We like small ships. We were impressed by Viking’s marketing, in ...
