Good cruise

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 ...

Great Itinerary

We have sailed Viking Ocean on 3 previous cruises. We love their ships - the size, the understated décor, no casino or sales of jewelry and other junk. This itinerary really appealed to us as we love history and ...

Was not up to my expectations

Viking is suppose to be top of the line. We have been on a River Cruise which was wonderful. Maybe it was the itinerary, but was not up to what I was expecting. The cabin was very nice. The ship was beautiful ...

Ocean cruise Athens

It was sold to me as a 14 Day Mediterranean Antiquities Cruise.

I just noticed that the top of this review it says 7 Night Journey to Antiquities. That is not what was sold to us by Viking. We bought a 14 day cruise called Mediterranean Antiquities Cruise. More about that ...

You don't get nickled and dimed to death on a Viking cruise!

We like Viking because when we check out at the end of the cruise we don't have a huge bill to pay for wine, sodas, bottled water, spa, laundry and shore excursions. The ship is light and bright and cheery. ...

There were many factors on why we chose this cruise. Two of the main factors were that this was a fantastic itinerary that visited the Holy Land and secondly, this was an adult cruise ship that did not have a ...

Very good but you dont have to depend on Viking for all your tours.

In general the cruise from Athens to Venice was a great experience. But I have a problem with the included port tours. In Athens the included tour was advertised as going to the Sintagmata Square with lots of ...

If you've taken a River Cruise with Viking, this ocean cruise is very similar except with a few more added features similar to other ocean cruise lines. In addition to the main dining room, which has any time ...

The price was once-in-a-lifetime, the overall experience - not so much

Great selection of excursions and solo activities. It was disappointing to have the itinerary changed to remove the original embarkation country entirely. Greece is gorgeous but I think 5 of the 10 days in 1 ...
