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 ...

This cruise had all of the things we were looking for in a Mediterranean cruise. The ports offered a wide verity of activities and the ship was full of thing to do. The embarkation process was easy and as fast as could be expected with all of the Covid protocols needing to be attended to. Our room was ready as soon as we boarded. Our cabin person was there to greet us and answer all our questions. ...

Viking does a great job on all aspects of a cruise! The timing of getting from port to port was perfect. We would just be entering the each port early every morning just in time to start the day’s excursion. All the excursions were very informative and enjoyable. On the ship, everything was perfect and everyone was so friendly and helpful. The roving entertainers were very talented and ...

We finally were able to take our twice postponed cruise and we’re extremely happy with the experience. We had a PV cabin that was roomy with plenty of storage and a good size bathroom. We were able to use our balcony a lot especially for sail ins in the morning. The service at every place on the ship was outstanding. We enjoyed the food at all the venues and liked having options. The cruise ...

The crew and travel guides all did a great job. The food was delicious. My wife and I enjoyed the onboard entertainment. The check in at the hotel in Venice was somewhat chaotic and disorganized. The airport in Venice was confusing to navigate. Overall I thought that the destinations were wonderful and a lot of useful information was provided. The entire Viking staff made sure that we were ...

We chose this cruise itinerary as we had not yet seen any of the ruins in Greece and surrounding areas and it was on our bucket list. We choose Viking because we had a great experience on their river cruises so thought it may be a good choice for ocean too. We were right, the ship was very nice and comfortable from the not too crowded feeling to the very nice stateroom we had. The ship's crew were ...

Viking is attempting to earn a reputation at sea that matches the excellent one it has on rivers. It's well on its way, but has some distance to go before it can be favorably compared to Crystal (when Crystal was at its peak). The most glaring shortfall, and possibly the only substantial one, is the evening entertainment which would be the equivalent of community theater as compared to ...

We have done 3 river cruises and 2 ocean cruises with Viking and have enjoyed all of them. The shortest was 9 days and the longest was 23 days. I don't know how the entire staff knows your name from day one. The crew can't do enough for you. We booked another Viking cruise before this cruise ended and we left the ship. One of the more enjoyable experiences for us, is having a cocktail in ...

My brother & his wife sailed Greece years ago, and their experiences and photos inspired my husband and I to tour the Mediterranean. Our past Viking River cruise led us to the Viking Ocean cruise - and we had a great time. The ship and its crew - and especially our waiter and staff (Theo, Sybil, and Bree) were wonderful. They entered in to our table banter while remaining professional and ...

After a two year delay, it was with some trepidation that we resumed cruising on Viking Sky’s Ancient Mediterranean Treasures voyage. We had read that the checkin procedure was long and tedious but from the moment we were picked up at Athens airport to the arrival in our room, everything went quickly and smoothly. We booked a penthouse veranda room on the 6th floor and it was spacious and the ...
