A fantastic cruise even with the Covid challenges
"This allowed us leisure time in these ports; not feeling rushed to get back to the ship after our excursions, so we could add our own experiences (lunch at a local restaurant in Kusadasi and time to walk around the market/seaside area, visiting the Cisterns and a Turkish/Islamic Art Museum and Topkopi Palace in Istanbul on our own) to the scheduled Viking experiences.We took two included excursions, with all of the others being at extra cost...."Read More

Terrible disembarkation and Athens extension

2-5 Cruises • Age 60s

The ship was fine and to Vikings usual standards. If I thought embarkation at Istanbul was bad it was nothing compared to Athens. DON'T bother with the overpriced Athens extension. We had to leave our stateroom by 8am , ( no hot water in the room that day)sat on the ship for over an hour, in fact it felt as if we were just dumped off the ship before the most disorganised, chaotic ...

We're sorry to hear aspects of your hotel extension did not meet expectation, UK user, and hope your voyage preceding your arrival to Athens was an enjoyable one. Your detailed feedback is...

Very good, but disappointed to miss Naples and Venice

This was our second Viking ocean cruise, two weeks from Civitavecchia to Piraeus via the Adriatic. Viking reps met us right by the luggage carousels at Rome airport but embarkation was slowed down by health screening at the quay. Our departure transfer was at a civilised 9.45 am though still dropped us at Athens airport 1½ hours before our check-in opened. Along with ships’ modern Nordic ...

I should put that into perspective. We are not well seasoned cruisers with 20+ cruises. This was our 8th cruise, with the 7 prior cruises on mass-market lines and on large (2000+ pax) ships. This was our first cruise on a small ship (<1000 pax) on a luxury cruise line. We'd been reading about Viking on CC and watching YT videos, so we had a sense of what to expect on the ship. However, ...

Viking not for us

10+ Cruises • Age 70s

We have done over 70 cruises with a number of different cruise companies and had read, and seen on You Tube, very positive views on Viking so we thought we would try it out - in retrospect a mistake. The good points - the ship is well planned; the décor was pleasant and it’s easy to find your way about. There is ample deck space and the retractable roof over the pool is a great facility. The ...

Perfection!

We chose this cruise because we had heard such great things about Viking. We had been to Greece before on land only, but wanted to delve deeper into Greek and biblical history. This trip did not disappoint! From start to finish, even amid Covid precautions, the entire experience was perfection. From the onboard entertainment to the incredible excursions, it was the trip of a lifetime. We ...

Cities of Antiquity

10+ Cruises • Age 50s

This cruise was originally called: "Cities of Antiquity & The Holy Land" and was renamed merely "Cities of Antiquity" after Israel and Cyprus were removed from the itinerary. We had a wonderful time and saw some truly remarkable sites. The ports of Pompeii, Heraklion, Rhodes, Malta, Turkey, Athens, and Santorini were beautiful and filled with so much history. Boarding We flew into Rome, ...

After much consideration of the challenges that may get in our way (e.g. Omicron surge, testing requirements, masking, airline restrictions), we are so glad that we took this cruise and it lived up to our expectations. My husband and I, along with our adult son and his girlfriend booked this cruise last summer when Viking was offering deals upon reopening the World, we were looking for a holiday ...

Having long heard and read about Viking, I booked their odyssey to Greece, which I had wanted to visit since glimpsing the Acropolis on a page in my 7th-grade geography textbook. For a year I imagined gliding along the blue waves of the Aegean, walking in the shadow of the Parthenon and gazing out from a cafe perched on the isle of Santorini. Viking turned out to be everything I hoped it would ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 70s

I chose Viking for its reputation and this itinerary. I wanted to experience the many facets of Greece and its islands. Visiting Ephesus was a plus. I had a deluxe veranda cabin, well worth the price. The cabin was large and well appointed. Another perk was the mini bar/fridge, the contents of which were free for the enjoying, including wine and snacks. The attention to detail and the ...

My Husband and I boarded this cruise in Barcelona, and continued for 15 days until we reached Venice. Ports included Sete (Montpelier) Marseille, VilleFranche Sur Mer (Monaco), Florence, Rome, Naples, Messina, Bari, Crotone, SIbenik Croatia and Venice. We chose Viking because we really liked the destinations we were allowed. Also, they allowed us to cancel for any reason prior to the cruise - ...
