We wanted to visit southern Mediterranean destinations we have never visited. We were attracted by the addition of ports in Northern Africa.
Ship was outstanding, expecially the Nordic spa! Great selection and quality of food throughout the day. Wonderful common areas in different areas of the ship. We appreciated the low-key noise level on the ship. Food on the ship was delightful! Lovely fruit, custom omelettes and egg dishes for breakfast. Nice variety for lunch. Dinner was amazing! The self-serve area included crab, shrimp and sushi every night! Fantastic original dining in the specialty restaurants, at no extra charge (unlike other cruise lines).
We loved our visit to Malta! Great guide, incredible sites to see. We had an interesting and informative excursion in Sardinia on the included tour. The Tunisians welcomed us after a few years without cruise visitors. The tour was a little rough, but we saw and learned a lot! We loved our time and tour of Valencia! Great food and sights, and a very informative guide.
Very easy disembarkment.
Viking offers top quality services and accommodations at a very reasonable price. No upselling! Include items not found on other cruise lines like water bottles for shore excursions, specialty dining options, wine and beer, and mist importantly - gelato!!
We were in a penthouse veranda room. Very comfortable. Loved the heated bathroom floor. Very, very comfortable bed. We loved it!
