Great Mediterranean Viking Sky cruise
"We used Viking transfers so port changes did not affect us in that regard, but we did arrive at Venice airport several hours earlier than needed.We had done a Viking river, and the additional amenities on the Sky were much appreciated - more common space, several bars, large indoor pool, along with small outdoor pool...."Read More

Review for Viking Sky to Europe - Western Mediterranean

We had wanted to take a Mediterranean cruise and after going on a Viking River cruise in 2015, we were anxious to try Viking Ocean. We enjoyed the experience on the river cruise and felt that an ocean cruise with Viking would be just as enriching and relaxing. We had Viking set us up with a pre-cruise stay in Rome for two days. They set us up at the Anantara Palazzo Naiadi which is right in the ...

We have never cruised on the Meditterean. The ports were all on our "bucket list". Viking has proven over and over it's commitment to personal service. We opted for the air upgrade to economy premium which was well worth it for my tall husband. Flights were all on time with a Viking representative there to meet us. Transportation was smooth and flawless. Once on board, the food was ...

The ship has an airy, Scandinavian design with many lovely gathering spaces as well as plenty of spots where you can be all alone if you want to. Our cabin was small but so smart in its layout that it never felt cramped. It had plenty of storage and the balcony was great for previewing the next port over (completely free) room-service breakfasts. The bed was large and comfortable, and our stewards ...

Great Viking Cruise after Horrible Embarking at Istanbul Galataport

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

Exceptional Cruise Experience But Need to Save Up for the Next One!

We picked Viking because we appreciated the adults-only, no-nonsense focus on the destinations. The small ship was comfortable and homey, and all food venues were excellent. Our pre-excursion to Capaddocia was a highlight of the trip, and we made friends who we stayed in touch with for the duration of the cruise and after. Cabins were top notch, well maintained and serviced. By pre-paying for ...

14 days of relaxation and luxury

First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

This was our first ever cruise. We picked Viking based on their reputation, 'small' size, and our needs; we are not interested in much entertainment, nor in flashy/gimmicky bling; we just wanted a nice cabin, great food, and interesting destinations. We picked the 'Ancient Adriatic Treasures' cruise, which was fascinating. 14 days for a 'first ever' cruise sounded risky, but in the end it was ...

An amazing cruise on Viking Sky, had only cruised once before (diff cruise line) many years ago and although that was a good experience - Viking exceed all expectations. Every crew member we encountered was happy, polite, engaging, smiling and seemed to genuinely love their jobs. They never let your glass go empty and never miss an opportunity to improve your journey in any way possible. The ship ...
