Viking is an excellent cruise line, this was our second cruise on Viking and we have the highest praise for the facilities and the staff. On each cruise they demonstrated their personal interest in our well being. We made all arrangements through Viking lines including air travel. Explored Athens for four days before the cruise. Hotel was Hilton Athens and facilities and food were excellent. Planned tours were informative and excellent choices. Ship facilities were excellent and food was excellent with many options. Room was excellent and well maintained by staff during the cruise. We participated in many of the port tours during the cruise. All of these were informative and well run with plenty of time for each activity. We would go again on other Viking cruises. One prior cruise was on the river cruise ships and this one was on the ocean cruise ship. I recommend Viking without hesitation.
