Perfect Christmas and New Year holiday

Review for Viking Star to Mediterranean

This was the perfect Christmas and New Year holiday. The ship is very modern, with Scandinavian style decor of the highest quality. Every fitment is top class. Staff are excellent. Food is outstanding, particularly in the Chef's Table restaurant where it excelled. The up front cost may seem on the high side, but we didn't need to spend at all if we chose because all our drinks were included, ...

This was our first cruise and we were accompanied by all our adult children. The dates were perfect in that all of us were off from work. Sailing in December avoided high temperatures and all our excursion destinies were not crowded. The ship was far beyond anything we expected with respect to the cabin, the service, the spa the food and the drinks. In the spa there is a snow room that was a new ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

I've always wanted to see Greece and this price was wonderful. The tours were handled so well. Tour guides were very knowledgeable and handled my millions of questions with patience. I would recommend this tour to anyone. We had one day at sea that was rough but we survived it okay. The Christmas decorations were very tasteful on the ship. The food was superb. I loved the fact that I could ...

First time to Europe and this cruise provided the areas of most interest to us. Very beautiful room and did not feel cramped for space. The luxury of not packing and unpacking travel was an important factor to us. All ship personnel we had contact with were very personal, attentive and very willing to assist with answering question or providing a service. Plenty of restaurant choices and food ...

For my 75th birthday, I took three generations of my family to enjoy a cruise over Christmas and New Years of 2020. I could not imagine that the actual experience would be as wonderful and beautiful as the PBS Ads! It was! Every step of the journey was so easy and so well organized that I simply floated through a blissful two weeks of paradise. Each crew member from the Captain to the bathroom ...

The best way to learn about our history is to travel back to the places where so much began. "Disconnect and unplug" from the workaday world to learn from whence we came. As an educator, I experienced a whole lot of learning aboard the Viking cruises. This is a third cruise with Viking for me and my husband. We've been on other cruise lines before, but we truly believe that Viking is now our ...

Our short but sweet “Journey to Antiquities” cruise is over but will remain a special memory for a long, long time! We boarded the beautiful Star in Athens and we were able to go to our stateroom immediately. A last minute upgrade put us in a Penthouse Junior Suite which was a lovely space but the inclusion of free laundry (including dry cleaning!) was the biggest perk! Our housekeeping team ...

Cruising for Christmas

I have worked for 30 years to get my husband to agree to a cruise. He didn’t want those small beds, he couldn’t stand to be below the waterline, he needs fresh air when he sleeps, he gets claustrophobic, he’ll get bored. I heard it for years - enter Viking Ocean Cruises - no rooms below water, all rooms have a private balcony with a large sliding glass door, king size beds, comfortable sized ...

If you are interested in seeing and learning about the Ancient Greek, Roman, and Minoan cultures, this is the cruise for you. Viking offers five star service all the way through along with a good selection of excursions. The food and wine selections are also the very best. Whether eating at The Restaurant, The Chefs Table, or Manfredi’s there is something you will like. There are great ...

We had done a Viking Phine River Cruise 3 years ago and that was wonderful. I didn't want to do an ocean cruise on one of the mega ships, the size of Viking's looked perfect. The level of service and attention we were afforded was beyond compare. Everyone was happy, helpful and acted genuinely glad to see us. They made us feel special. The food on board was the absolute best. Plenty of ...
