Exotic Journey on a Beautiful Ship

Review for Viking Osiris to Middle East

We chose this cruise because seeing Egypt was on my husband's "bucket list" and because close friends who have traveled with Viking before invited us. We made our reservations in the depths of the pandemic - a hopeful and optimistic gesture toward the future. We were not disappointed. As Viking newcomers, we knew of Viking's reputation, but experiencing the level of service and excellence ...

Overall we were very happy with the cruise. The ship is relatively new. It was clean and modern. We had a balcony with 2 chairs and a table, but did not use it much because the weather was a bit cool. The cabin was spacious and cleaned everyday. Staff were all friendly and helpful. Our Egyptologist Fouad was so knowledgeable, personable, and funny. The ship was split into 3 groups and each had ...

One of the best vacations we've had in a long time. A Nile River Cruise has been on our bucket list and this did not disappoint. From the moment we were met at Cairo Airport everything was well organised - the Four Seasons Hotel in Cairo was very good, our room was spacious and comfortable and the Riviera Italian restaurant was very good. Service on ship was good, staff friendly and helpful. ...

This replaced 2 July 2022 Russian river cruises. The learning of the history and current status of Eqypt was superb. It's not a place to go on your own....amazingly educated guides. They prepped us for all events, the when-were-how to get ready and how we would proceed. Only 50 passengers so had reasonably small #s on excursions. Great ability to move us around without losing anyone and keeping us ...

We were very interested in visiting Egypt and Jerusalem so this was the right opportunity!! The trip was great and it combined fun and knowledge of the Egyptian civilization and the Middle East!! Jerusalem was just great, the melting point of cultures and faith!! Walking the different quarters of old Jerusalem was a journey back in time!! It was great to visit the Churches of the Nativity ...

Visiting Egypt and cruising on the Nile River were definitely bucket list items for us and Viking did a great job of fulfilling that dream. We visited museums, pyramids, temples and tombs all along the Nile while having an excellent Egyptologist as our guide to provide us with intriguing details about the history and legends of the Pharaohs and their legacies. Each day brought a new insight and ...

First class all the way!! First experience with Viking and it was absolutely terrific! The only disappointment I have was the fact that the Grand Egyptian Museum STILL has not opened. Obviously, Viking has no control over this, and the museums we did visit in Cairo were fantastic. Our guides were excellent and made the museums very enjoyable. The morning hot air balloon ride is not to be ...

Herd Viking was the best for an educational experience in comfort. Well it's true. Vicking took care of everything. The historian guide was with us everywhere. Giving us knowledge so interesting I couldn't believe it. Sherry is the best. The Osirus is as billed. Absolutely beautiful and roomy in Scandinavian style. Accommodations were outstanding. Guest to crew ratio made this trip extremely ...

The overall trip was fabulous. We had never taken a Viking River cruise before but we had heard good feedback from people we know that had done river cruises with Viking before. The entire trip was well choreographed, starting with the arrival at the Cairo airport. The Program Director (Hany) was excellent and we felt very lucky to have had his guidance and expertise on the entire tour. He was ...

2-5 Cruises • Age 60s

The places visited were spectacular and the sites and scenes along the Nile were almost magical, however the itinerary of getting to and from these places was somewhat cumbersome. There were a total of 6 plane rides including the Abu Simbel option. I believe this is just the nature of the beast one has to go through in order to see these sites. The only negative I would place on the itinerary is ...
