Varied and fascinating itinerary on a beautiful ship

Review for a Europe - Eastern Mediterranean Cruise on Viking Sea

6-10 Cruises • Age 60s

We selected this cruise because of the ship (having sailed on it and it sister-ships twice before), the variety of destinations, and the selection of excursions at each port. Despite being one of the first Viking ocean vessels (circa 2016), the Viking Sea is beautifully maintained and the wear and tear from our first cruise on it in 2017 was minimal. The interior, staff, and organization was ...

Great cruise, both relaxing and educational (Athens to Venice)

Review for a Europe - Eastern Mediterranean Cruise on Viking Sea

2-5 Cruises • Age 60s

We travelled with our two adult kids to see 4 countries (8 cities) we had never seen before. I really enjoyed traveling on a smaller (900 passenger ship) rather than the other huge (4000+ passenger) alternatives - the ports where the other big ships showed up were noticeably overwhelmed. Viking offered from 6-10 shore excursions at each port, at least one of which was free. All the excursions ...

A group of 5 friends sailed this amazing cruise. We chose it based on the great locations & we weren’t disappointed. This is our third Viking cruise and we really appreciate the consistency of the quality provided by Viking. From the minute we stepped on the ship, we were greeted with a smile & that happened the entire cruise. The Viking crew (all of them!) excel in customer service. The ...

First Timer but NOT Last Timer!

2-5 Cruises • Age 60s

We chose Viking on their impeccable reputation. They did not disappoint. It is obvious from day 1 that customer service is the priority. We were always greeted warmly by all staff no matter the time of day or night. The cabin stewards cleaned twice a day as well as restocked the mini fridge. The Freya products provided in the bathroom were great. I did not use my own products. The pools and decks ...

Getting away from RCCL

Review for a Europe - Eastern Mediterranean Cruise on Viking Sea

10+ Cruises • Age 60s

The ship was very nice…we liked the size of the ship compared to RCCL ships we have been on the past 32 cruises. Really liked no kids under 18 and no casino or smoking. Very friendly staff…John and April were best cabin attendents for our cabin 6080. Sharon down on Bar on Deck 1 was especially nice...you hire good people. Food was very good at all venues…my only negative comment – the World ...

Why not to take a Viking cruise

6-10 Cruises • Age 60s

We booked a cruise with Viking, from Athens to Venice , and embarked on the cruise onJune9 of 2023 .The cruise is called “ Empires of the Mediterranean.” No vegetarian should book with Viking !! As my wife is basically a vegetarian, even before making the booking on the cruise, I had taken the trouble of calling Viking directly and speaking to somebody in the culinary department to ensure ...

Fabulous first time coming cruise!

Review for a Mediterranean Cruise on Viking Sea

First Time Cruiser • Age 70s

We initially went on a Viking cruise per the recommendations of my sister and brother-in-law who are Viking veterans. We have never wanted to go on a cruise before because all we have ever seen about cruising. Are they hordes of people, waiting in line to do everything and getting nickels and dimes for all activities and extra events. We were so glad that we did go on a Viking cruise for our first ...

Review for a Europe - Eastern Mediterranean Cruise on Viking Sea

2-5 Cruises • Age 60s

As always, service on Viking is top notch - great food, pleasant entertainment and extremely courteous/efficient staff. The Italian specialty restaurant is phenomenal! The Chef's Table menu was mediocre, though the wine pairings were fun. Having a different port every day maximizes exploration opportunities. I like that Viking offers an included tour in every port . . . most of the tours we ...

Outstanding service!

Review for a Mediterranean Cruise on Viking Sea

10+ Cruises • Age 60s

We traveled on a River Cruise with Viking in the past. We were very impressed with the service offered we wanted to try an Ocean cruise. The Viking team showed up with the same type service so it was easy to see it’s part of the company’s culture. The cabins cleaned twice a day, the ship was always clean, and the restaurants top notch. In the restaurants the food was well prepared and tasted ...
