Cruising for Christmas

Review for Viking Star to Mediterranean

First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

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 ...

2-5 Cruises • Age 70s

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

Perfect Christmas and New Year holiday

6-10 Cruises • Age 60s

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, ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 80s

My sister and I took this cruise because we both had wanted to go to Athens, and we had never done that. We are both over 80 years old and have mobility problems. On the boat, everything was fine. Shore excursions less so. We did not realize that there were enrichment and entertainment options, Our fault, we did not look at the daily briefings. We both wanted to go to Knossos, but the boat ...

2-5 Cruises • Age 70s

We chose this cruise because we had been on one that ended in Athens almost 2 years ago and my husband got sick (we were quarantined to the stateroom on our last day and missed the excursion in Athens). There was a special deal on the first 8 days of the 14 night Mediterranean Antiquities cruise, beginning in Athens and ending with disembarkation in Rome. Christmas Eve and Christmas Day were at ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

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 ...

A new experience for us to see ancient sites in Greece and Turkey and to again explore Pompeii with family. A new ship put into service in May 2015, Viking Star is state of the art cruising limited to 930 over 18 age passengers. This is our second Viking Christmas week ocean cruise in the Med with grand daughters. Everything was fabulous- the weather, cabin, dining, activities, and shore ...
