First time on a Viking Ocean cruise after several Viking River Cruises

Explored Barcelona on our own before the cruise (have been there before) and still love the city. Smooth embarkation and well treated by the ship's staff. Since this was our first Viking Ocean cruise, we explored ...

Outstanding "smaller" ship, great service, many great memories.

This was our first ocean cruise, chosen because we like Viking's all-inclusive approach and the smaller ship (approx 900 guests). We added extra days at both ends (Barcelona and Venice), well worth it as Viking ...

Review of my 2nd Ocean voyage after 2 River Cruises

Return cruiser. Viking not just meets my expectations, it consistently exceeds them in all categories. We routinely book our next cruise on our current trip. We are hooked. Love the fact that it is a smaller ocean ...

Felt Like a Smaller Ship

We chose this - and the follow-on cruise from Rome back to Barcelona - to (1) try out Viking's sea-going ship, and (2) see some new-to-us ports, particularly those in the southern Mediterranean/North Africa. We ...

A beautiful ship with a great spa

We chose this itinerary (Barcelona to Rome) for proximity to land and ports with no "cruise days" but ran into a strong northeaster out of Barcelona. Unfortunately the stay in Barcelona was shortened by the storm. ...

I had never been on a Ocean cruise. More than that, I did not want to go on a Ocean cruise. You see, I get seasick. Not just "seasick" but "stay in the cabin in misery" seasick. But I had been on many of Viking's ...
