Exotic Journey on a Beautiful Ship
"From friendly staff to comfortable staterooms, beautiful common areas, and truly fine dining, the cruise provided a relaxed and up-close view of the Nile and its communities.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...."Read More

First Time Cruiser • Age 70s

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 ...

This was my first Viking cruise experience. Many if not most of the passengers were repeat Viking customers and every single one said this was "not up to Viking standards". The ship was quite lovely and comfortable and the senior staff were so gracious and helpful. The room stewards and dining room wait staff however apparently are new and need more experience to come up to the service and ...

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 ...

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 ...

Bucket list item. Hotels very beautiful, good restaurant. Alot of walking, uneven terrain, loose rocks, and very hot in Oct. Extremely busy but so exciting. No need to worry about entertainment your too tired after excursions. Sleep is much welcome. Swan rooms very nice. Windows larger than those on Europe river boats. Tons of storage and even a couch to relax on. Service from staff was ...

We chose this cruise as it was our 25th anniversary and we wanted it to be very special. The ship is brand new and it was sparkling clean. The crew and staff on board were extremely nice, hard working, and very pleasant. The food on board was really good and plentiful. Unlike other cruise ships this is not a feeding frenzy, meals are served 3 times a day (which we really liked) but there is ...

We booked this cruise to go in early 2020, but then COVID hit and it was postponed. I think it was postponed 4 times and the final delay was because the ship was not built yet; a large part because of COVID. The ship was beautiful and well decorated. The restaurant was very nice; however, it quickly became apparent that the staff had not been trained in serving wine. I had a difficult time ...

We thoroughly enjoyed our tour of Egypt with Viking. Our flight was delayed out of SFO and the Viking Air staff did a great job getting us rescheduled on a later flight out of Heathrow. From the pickup at the airport to our delivery back, we were well taken care of by our Viking reps. We felt safe the entire time. The Osiris is a beautiful boat and the staff is spectacular. They spent their time ...
