Viking Sea Cruise Review by charlesN

  • Destination: the Eastern Mediterranean

I chose Viking because of my good experience with the Viking Star. However, the overall service, dining, and entertainment are a step behind her sister ship.

Don't get me wrong, Viking ship and cabin are very high in quality. This time , the ports and shore excursions are well executed.

It seems to me that Viking is expanding too fast. Food quality is subpar for a luxury ship, although it is still better than other common cruse lines.

Dinning room service was inconsistent. One night could be very attentive but next night was spotty. A few maiter' d still had attitude of mega ships which treat customers with very respect

Viking is in growing pain and it really realizes that you cannot rush to produce before it is ready.

All entertainers work very hard but short of talent. The entertainment program could use a little bit of adjustment. It becomes a bit boring, I recalled I skip a night or two. To be honest, most of cruises nowadays offer very little in entertainments on board. If you a top notch entertainers and entertainment, stay on land.
