2-5 Cruises

Age 70s

traveled as a single with another couple. The food was great, the tours were great, the size of the ship was great. The crew was friendly and efficient, My only issue was that as a single person who had paid double I had hoped to find other single on the cruise but did not,as a result iI did feel awkward and I am sure that it did flavour my enjoyment of the trip.

First Time Cruiser

Age 70s

The ship is fantastic! Our first Viking experience, this was the centerpiece of a 45 day "Grand Tour". The crew is outstanding, friendly, attentive and eager to please.

2-5 Cruises

Age 70s

On board from Istanbul to Venice for the first leg of the 'maiden', there was no particular fanfare or sense that we were part of something special. Too bad, since the ship itself is beautiful. The technical glitches of a maiden were understandable, albeit annoying, such as non-working TVs, a cabin safe locked open for two days, plumbing issues, etc. We were often in the dark as to what was going ...
