Interesting itinerary addressing many bucket list destinations; we also wanted to try a new ship; after a Viking River cruise and several Oceania and Celebrity cruises we wanted to try Viking Ocean cruise on a small ship; the entire crew from the captain on down was very accessible and friendly and provided great customer service while always endorsing the Viking brand; we individually recognized ...

Almost to perfection, I’m not sure I’ll ever cruise on any other line again!

I have sailed a lot, probably close to100 cruises. On Cunard’s Queen Mary 2, I have spent over 360 days. But I was so impressed with everything about this voyage, I’m not sure I ever will go back to any other line; I think I have found my new home on the seas. embarkation and disembarkation both went very smoothly, a benefit of sailing with only 900 other passengers. This was not only the ...

The itinerary for this cruise was exceptional. We visited 10 countries, 16 ports of call, and too many UNESCO World Heritage sites to count. The list of highlights alone would take up all the room allowed for this review. One exceptional point was that each port of call had an included excursion that was part of your fare. There were also extra excursions available for a surcharge. Those were ...

The cruise provided the opportunity to see the Parthenon, the Holy Land, the pyramids, the Temple at Karnak and the ruins at Petra as well as meet the wonderful people who now live in and around these ancient places. The ship provided a wonderful base to strike out from to visit each of these places and a safe, comfortable "home" to come back to at the end of each day. The ship's crew were ...

This is a pretty ship however, we were in CODE RED for the majority of our journey as there was a GI outbreak on the ship. This ship is odd, there is an unease among the crew on this vessel. You never see any of the officers or anyone socializing on the ship. The dance bar is near empty at all times. It's just a very very dull ship. I mean I'm all for elegant but 2 weeks with a near pin drop ...

We chose the cruise for the itinerary and the review of this particular new Viking ship. We were NOT disappointed with either itinerary or the ship. In fact, we did something we have never done before, after sailing on a cruise ship, we booked another cruise! We can't say enough good things about the entire experience. The ship is absolutely fantastic. We loved the adults only atmosphere. ...

Our first ocean cruise, a test.

Having done a few river cruises with Viking, we decided to try one of their ocean cruises. I was worried about getting on and off the boat with so many people and indeed it is a logistical challenge compared to the river cruises, but they did an excellent job of minimizing our thumb twiddling or line standing. So that was alright, I thought. Eight or nine hundred people is still a lot to have ...
