Simply the Best: Viking Sea
"Viking Ocean is by far the best ocean cruise line we have taken. We have cruised with NCL, Princess and Celebrity and the level of service provided by Viking is a cut above the rest. First of all, we like their..."Read More

Viking does a great job. Everything was well organized and the excursions were executed flawlessly. As first-time cruisers, we were most impressed with the outstanding food served on board. The buffets were terrific! We almost hated to miss a meal on board because of their quality and variety of choices. The smaller size of the Viking Sea, with only about 920 passengers and no small children, ...

Size and best price for a luxury cruise. The staff went above and beyond to make sure we were having a great time. Although we have done several cruises in the past, including a transatlantic cruise, this was our first cruise on a small luxury class ship. We could not have been more pleased. We were not surprised to learn that Viking has received the best in class rating for 2016. They have done ...

I have been on dozens of cruises and this was the most beautiful ship that I've been on. The food was very good and the service was too. Embarkation and debarkation are run very smoothly. The ship's common areas are so classy. The pools and spa were very nice. Our room was decorated very tastefully. Our bathroom was beyond expectations. It was huge. I enjoyed the tub with the tv in it. We were on ...

My husband and I took the Grand European River Cruise in May 2014 and loved it. When Viking announced they would be offering ocean cruises we knew we would book one soon! We explored Venice on our own before disembarkation. It was very simple to access the ship via water taxi from the Hotel Metropole steps from St. Mark's Square. The cabin was spacey and always meticulous cleaned. Our ...

This is our second Viking cruise. My wife and I had suite 7000 (Penhouse junior) about 400 square feet of space. Our first Viking cruise was China (16 days or so). The ambience throughout Viking Sea our ship provided joy, peace and tranquility. Nighttime entertainment was very enjoyable. Lectures by experts provided good insights and new knowledge. Fellow passengers were kind and easy to get ...

Liked it so much we signed up for next year -- same ship, same cabin, different destination. Luxurious cabin, excellent food and service. In fact, we became fast friends with our dining room servers who looked out for us each night. The ship was new and spotless. Breakfast room service every morning. Shore excursions just about perfect, especially the guides and transportation. We selected ...

We chose this cruise for a number of reasons. The price was right and the cruise included ports of interest to my wife and myself. We both like cruises and the amenities that were described about the cruise was different that other cruise lines. When we arrived we were greeted as friends and not like a customer. The ports we visited were great and the excursions were well organized and ...

Age 60s

This was our first 'ocean' cruise. We had avoided cruises because of the size of the ships and the impression we had of people being herded. The Viking Star was a great size - only about 800 people on our cruise. We began with the pre-cruise extension to Gallipoli and Troy. First class accommodations and an excellent guide. We were unable to go back to Istanbul. Viking had made the wise decision ...

We have had many opportunities to sail with Viking on their river cruises where we daily experienced their professionalism of putting the passenger first in comfortable accommodations, over the top meals, cultural entertainment, enjoyable fact learning tours, etc. We then decided we wanted to try their new ocean cruise ships, so we chose the Empires of the Mediterranian cruise.

We heard about Viking through other people and that they had a great experience. Everyone we talk to would choose Viking over any other Cruise Lines. They were right. We had a great trip. We went on a 50 day cruise and never regretted going on that long of a trip. Some of our friends thought we would get bored but it was just the opposite. Trip went by fast with all the activities and we ...
