  • Destination: the Mediterranean

This was our first cruise. We fell in love with the Viking experience and have already spoken of future locations to look into..... All around fantastic experience, couldn't imagine cruising with another line.

We chose the Junior Veranda Suite and could not have been happier. Very roomy and the bathroom was well appointed and had more than enough room. Bed and furniture was quite comfortable and lines were very nice.

Our cabin was cleaned twice a day and the free laundry service was fantastic.

The dining was superb. From the World Cafe to The Restaurant you will not have a bad meal. We did dine at the Chef's Table and Manfredo's multiple times and our favorite was Manfredo. Food was excellent and authentic Italian. Simply loved the bread and olive oil paired with the hard parmeigiano reggiano cheese.

Crew was personable, professional and above all, friendly! A wonderful experience from start to finish and I cant wait to book another trip!!!

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews


we actually flew in a few days before our departure so we would have time to explore the city! Lovely sightseeing. Food was great and the people were friendly. Could stay there for a week and have a marvelous time.


walked around on our own. Not very clean and was quite disappointed overall.

Le Castellet and Varney

Loved the entire day.... LeCastellet was simply charming and so full of history. Our tour guide Oliver was fantastic!

Very nice day touring the area.... would definitely return.

Monaco (Monte Carlo)

walked around with our traveling companions. City was busy and a bit confusing to navigate. People not quite rude but not friendly either. Palace and Casino were nice to see.

Florence (Livorno)

Simply lovely day! Town of Luca was amazing also.
