Viking Sea Cruise Review by Kirra Cruiser
- Sail Date: August 2016
- Destination: Western Mediterranean
Included Shore excursions were mostly walking tours of the ports of call with wonderful guides. Groups of 30 -36 were a little large at times in crowded ports. The additional tours were good value and to varied, interesting locations (but still large group size)
We have cruised with Holland America (Alaska,1400 people), Windstar (Tahiti, 100 people),and Silverseas (Oceania Expedition cruise , 60). Viking is regarded as 'Small ship' but I found over 900 (majority Americans, some from UK, NZ and Australia) on a 10 day cruise meant it was difficult to catch up again with fellow travellers. There are so many wonderful spaces and activities.
Some of the shows, although free, had to be pre-booked and we missed these but heard they were of high standard. Captain's welcome and farewell featured some of the entertainers.
