Viking Oceans Cruises Exceeds Expectations But Has A Few Improvement Opportunities

Review for Viking Sea to Mediterranean

We scheduled our Mediterranean Odyssey cruise in 2018 for April 2020. After cancelation in 2020 and then again in 2021 due to Covid we finally were able to cruise in April of 2022, an exciting event. Preparations for travel to meet Covid requirements were a little stressful, but we successfully navigated the many requirements for the airlines and Viking. We flew into Barcelona Spain to embark on ...

10+ Cruises • Age 70s

We have done over 70 cruises with a number of different cruise companies and had read, and seen on You Tube, very positive views on Viking so we thought we would try it out - in retrospect a mistake. The good points - the ship is well planned; the décor was pleasant and it’s easy to find your way about. There is ample deck space and the retractable roof over the pool is a great facility. The ...

My wife and I recently completed our first Viking Ocean cruise onboard Jupiter for the Mediterranean Odyssey Itinerary. This was my first ocean cruise after having previously completed (and loving) 2 Viking River cruises. We choose Viking primarily for the destination-focused experience and this cruise did not disappoint. We had no significant pre-cruise issues. We navigated the COVID-related ...

My Husband and I boarded this cruise in Barcelona, and continued for 15 days until we reached Venice. Ports included Sete (Montpelier) Marseille, VilleFranche Sur Mer (Monaco), Florence, Rome, Naples, Messina, Bari, Crotone, SIbenik Croatia and Venice. We chose Viking because we really liked the destinations we were allowed. Also, they allowed us to cancel for any reason prior to the cruise - ...

My 83 year old mother and I chose Viking as her end all get all Cruise. Her grand finale’. We loved the itinerary and added days on the front and back end. Thank God for those days. Once we boarded, early as we had a nice suite, we were told we could not leave the ship unattended via letter in our stateroom. At any port. This was not communicated before hand. This is how it works. Must be ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

We booked this cruise over 2 years ago and was seriously thinking about cancelling it and rebooking for a later date. We didn't due to no availability until 2023. Hind site is 20/20 and we should have canceled. We embarked in Barcelona and disembarked in Venice. This was first ever once in a lifetime cruise. We had high expectations due to great Viking reviews. Viking was being very cautious ...

As always, the service staff was exceptional, from our arrival in Barcelona to our departure at Heathrow. The restaurant professionals were courteous, pleasant and friendly, unlike many of the guests. May I suggest hiring some entertainers and staff from the destinations being traveled. That was a feature that made our Russian voyage so richly rewarding. Evidently, the Brits received a much ...

Having sailed on the River Yangtse with Viking we looked forward to experiencing an ocean cruise with them. The high standards of their river cruise was matched on this cruise from Barcelona to London. We have cruised on a number of other companies ocean cruises but this was head and shoulders above all. Staff were courteous and helpful without being intrusive. The ship belied the fact that ...

My husband and I chose this cruise to celebrate our retirement with my sister and her husband. We happened to depart on my birthday, so Viking provided a bottle of champagne and cake in celebration. The first full day at sea was a day of exploration of this beautiful ship. From the Explorer’s Lounge with its beautiful view and lovely collection of model ships to the incredible spa with its Snow ...
