An absolute pleasure

Review for Celestyal Crystal to Mediterranean

First Time Cruiser • Age 70s

This was our first experience of sea cruising and it was an absolute pleasure. Everything aboard the Celestyal Crystal was well-organised and the ship had a lovely atmosphere. She was very attractively furnished in all the public areas that we saw and our cabin was beautiful. The various lounges and open air decks made for comfortable opportunities from which to view surrounding scenery. All the ...

2-5 Cruises • Age 60s

Even though we travelled extensively in Greece in the mid-1980's we found numerous excursions that took us to new territory. We thoroughly enjoyed this itinerary and we bought a number of additional excursions. Pros 1) We were happy with all stops and excursions except the included tour of Marseilles France (we made the best of it by walking briskly around the old port, which, has since ...

Other family members have sailed with Viking before, but this was my first ever cruise-- and I think all other cruises line now be spoiled for me, since I've experienced how amazing Viking is. The ship was beautiful, the food was amazing, and the crew was so wonderful. They were friendly and clearly well trained. The destinations was absolutely beautiful as well; we lucked out with perfect weather ...

Great Viking Cruise after Horrible Embarking at Istanbul Galataport

2-5 Cruises • Age 60s

We had a wonderful time on the Viking Sky, cruising from Istanbul to Troy, Ephesus, Rhodes, Crete, and ending in Athens. The ship was beautiful, clean, and modern, and never felt crowded, except for a couple of times at breakfast. As we usual for Viking, the food, crew, and onshore tours were excellent. Our best recommendation is that we look forward to our next Viking cruise! The only ...

We wanted to see Istanbul and liked the choices of other ports in the itinerary. Viking crew are professional without giving up their welcoming warmth. I like the size and layout of the ship. While we ate at the specialized restaurants, we found the food quality, variety and service to be just as good in The Restaurant and the World Cafe. We enjoyed Sasha, the pianist, and the violin/piano duo ...

A cruise line in decline

Review for Silver Spirit to Mediterranean

6-10 Cruises • Age 60s

This was our 3rd Silversea cruise but our first post Covid. Things have changed and our great expectations based on previous voyages were sorely dashed by Silversea. Their delivery of customer service and quality, the main things that used to attract one to their cruise brand, has deteriorated massively since out last cruise with them pre Covid. Organizational capability and on board managerial ...

Abandoned by Oceania

Review for Riviera to Europe - Eastern Mediterranean

10+ Cruises • Age 70s

This back to back (12 + 7) days cruise was booked one year ago. Four weeks before departure we were informed by Oceania that our chosen stateroom 7004 was unavailable for "Maritime Technical" reasons. We chose this particular cabin because of the extended balcony. Phone call queries with both our Travel Agent and Oceania as to what this term meant proved fruitless. We eventually agreed with ...

We selected this cruise because of the reduced price. It was a remarkable deal. It was our first Viking ocean cruise. We love the Viking river cruises and have taken several. We liked the size of the ship and the passenger capacity; as we prefer the smaller ships to the mega ships. The food was very good; in both the main dining room and the specialty restaurants. The shows were lackluster - ...

Gorgeous Ship and Staff but some shortfalls

10+ Cruises • Age 70s

We cruise a lot and the Viking Sky is the prettiest ship we have experienced. Spacious and comfortable. The staff are wonderful. The quality of food is good but not great. More than enough offers, but the quality was uneven. Several frequent Viking clients agreed with my assessment. The Italian specialty restaurant was anything but special. We cancelled several of our reservations and opted ...

We choose Viking because it is the best cruise line in the World. No gambling and no children. No upcharges and no table selling. The staff are always accommodating and trying to please! The rooms are spacious and always refreshed each day. The food is plentiful and available all the time. In fact, where can you get unlimited King Crab and Lobster? Really enjoyed the land tours and the tour ...
