Arrived in Athens 2days before departure and boarded the cruise ship with ease. Everything went very smooth and they had all the shore excursions well organized. Vey impressed. Only thing wrong was the transfers when we got to Venice (not good) but this was not done by Viking should have booked Viking transfers. All in all in was fantastic and will definitely go on another one. This was our second with Viking ,first ocean and the river cruise was aslo as great. We went from Budapest to Amsterdam and all the shore excursions were also great. Meals were fantastic and the alacart restaurants were nice to go to. The staff couldn't do enough for you always asking if everything is okay. Our cabin was very spacious and we enjoyed our terrace. It is also nice that you may bring the local wine on board to try or the local beers. Excellent holiday and will do it again. Read Less

We had already enjoyed several VIking RIver cruises and we were curious to see a part of the world where we had never been before. Seeing Croatia, Greece, Montenegro, Slovenia etc were unique and full of history and some amazing towns and countryside. The Viking Sea (VS) was an amazing experience in itself. While it carries over 900 people, it felt less crowded and more personal than even the new Viking Longships. The VS has so many special places designed for getting away and just enjoying /relaxing. The choices for eating fit every possible preference from casual to formal and there were limitless varieties of food to choose from. Both the quality of the food and the staff that served it could not have been better. Two of the perks that the ocean ships have over the river ships, is a laundry and a medical clinic. Both great additions to the sailing experience. I was a bit concerned about sailing in the ocean as opposed to a river, but the VS was so smooth, that even with white caps on the water nor at night did we feel anything. Our one major suggestion to VIking would be that more detailed information was provided concerning the optional tours. Even just providing the time spent driving to the destinations would be very helpful. Read Less
