Our stateroom attendant, Nino, was an absolutely delightful young man.

We choose this cruise because of the routing, and this time of year for the lighter crowds of the off season and cooler weather. We were pleased with both the weather and lack of crowds. Also everything was decorated for Christmas which made it even more beautiful. Over all both the tours provided and the extra excursions we purchased were excellant. However, on the Night of Flamenco in ...

Wanted to try the ocean cruise since we had already done a river cruise. My wife and I were not disappointed. The ship was big enough to feel safe and small enough to feel like family. I wish the itinerary would have included a few sea days in order to explore the ship more and been able to use the ships facilities without sacrificing shore excursion time. The ports of call were outstanding. The ...

2-5 Cruises • Age 60s

We wanted to see some of the Med coast and to visit Tuscany and were happy with prior Viking River cruises so we gave it a shot. Weather was cool but not really chilly and the seas were basically calm except for part of one evening. Very efficient meet up in Barcelona airport - certainly not a real busy place at about 8:00 am. Boarded the ship efficiently a little before the 11:00 am access ...

We went with our son, daughter in law, & two grand children. They had never been to the Mediterranean. It was a great trip that they could afford, and everything was inclusive. The dining on board was exquisite. The entertainment & excursions were great. The ship was well appointed, and you didn't feel crowded. The service & crew were exceptional. This was our third Viking cruise, and needless to ...

We chose Viking because several of our friends have cruised with Viking before and had wonderful experiences. We chose this particular cruise because of the itinerary, and it was absolutely perfect!!!! We also chose to cruise in October, and the weather in the Mediterranean was wonderful !!! At each port we had fun excursions to choose from. We just can’t say enough about the ship, the crew, ...

The ship is beautiful and the public area is plentiful and tastefully done. The spa area is excellent, I wish I have more time to explore the spa facility. The port Sete was not originally on the itinerary and it was not an interesting port for a stop. Shuttle service at Florence was not up to par. We were left at the bus stop for over an hour in the rain and we never received an apology for ...

This was the perfect itinerary for my wife and I. We've always wanted to see the this part of the world and we were dying for a chance to experience a Viking Ocean Cruise. We've previously been on Viking River Cruises but never before been on an ocean cruise with any cruise line. Our experience leads us to conclude that Viking has successfully carried over their brand experience from river ...

We wanted to try Viking. Their food was very good. But we both agreed that Oceania's food is better. The cabin was comfortable. We had great cabin attendants. Always there to help. The mini bar was always stocked, extra towels if needed. The mustard drill was fast and very good. The ship was clean and the most comfortable ship that we have ever been on after more than twenty ...

We went on this cruise to join our friends who went on River cruises with us. We also wanted to see the beautiful Viking ship that is advertised on our TV programs. The ship is totally lovely. The food was excellent. The staff wonderful. We were happy with many of the excursions in the cities on the cruise. But some of the excursions were not planned well and were rushed. We spent more time on ...

This cruise covers a lot of places. Very interesting, and full excursions. We went from Madrid to Venice. With extensions on both. Madrid was a disappointment. The hotel was nice, but you had to pay for coffee after breakfast. This should be free in the lobby. The street beggars are constantly asking you to buy their wares. Even when seated in outdoor restaurants. Very annoying. I would ...
