Additional details

Sail Date: May 2018

LAUNDRY: Many of my fine linen items came back shrunken even though my instructions were specific about their care. FOOD: Nothing to write home about - staff had difficulty communicating in English. BUFFET: Seafood buffet had a "fishy" smell quite evident even when just passing. WINES: Overly disappointed with our "included wines" which were a simply a " red or white" PERIOD! My husband is a Sommelier and my palate is definitely educated, so I drank premium wines, but still none that I would consider as being chargeable. TOURS: The Viking tours we opted for (both paid and included) were substandard. ENTERTAINMENT: Repetitive and devoid of choices. STATEROOM: Our toilet did not work 25% of our cruise! Guest Services said many staterooms had same problem! DEMOGRAPHIC: Geriatric and inactive! POOLS Small. PRICING: At $21,466.00+ we expected much more! I sent a direct notice to Viking Headquarters, but never received a response.

We appreciate the time you took to provide a detailed review of your recent adventure around the Mediterranean Sea, superdog007. The stateroom difficulties you’ve described are regrettable,...

We were on our own and had a blast!


Nothing to see here! Just ate lunch and back on ship!


Hired another local guide to visit Gaudi sites! Very nice experience. Second BEST on our cruise following Rome with our other private guide. Viking Star excursions were a TOTAL rip-off and they weren't cheap - sometimes as much as $99/pp! Really????
