We chose the Mediterranean Odyssey 12-day cruise because of the itinerary offered. All of the ports were cities/countries we wanted to visit. Our cabin was large, impeccable and very comfortable. Everyone from our cabin steward, guest services, bar and restaurant servers, etc. treated us like royalty. We enjoyed the opportunity to dine casually or fine dining in the other restaurants. We had a great selection of entrees and wines from the region we had visited that day. We also enjoyed the diversified evening entertainment and music. Our shore excursions were included in the cost of the cruise and were well planned and on-time. My only complaint is that sometimes we didn’t have much time after the tours to explore and shop or eat as we had to shuttle back to the ship. We enjoyed the intimacy of cruising on a small ship and would highly recommend VIKING for your travels. VIKING is top notch from embarkation to disembarkation!

First time Viking cruisers, but not the last!

Cabin Review

Cabin 6026
We were on the 6th deck, mid-ship. Our room was spacious with a king size bed which was extremely comfortable after a long day of excursions and walking. We had ample closet and drawer space and could store our luggage under the bed. Loved the spacious bathroom and heated floors. It was also nice to have comfy chairs to lounge in or to sit out on the deck and enjoy the ports or watch the sunset. THE BEST CABIN WE HAVE HAD ON A CRUISE!

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews

  • Dubrovnik
    This was an optional tour offered that we paid for. It included a 45 minute tour bus ride to a family-owned vineyard in the country and a wine tasting of two wines and a sweet bread. The downside of this was the two wines cost $50 and $100 a bottle.

  • Walking Tour
    Upon arriving in port we boarded a tour bus for a scenic drive to an overlook and panoramic view of Dubrovnik. We returned to Old Town through the historic Pile Gate and a walking tour of that area.

  • Walking Tour
    Walking tour to the old quarter and the 4th century palace erected by the Roman Emporer Diocletian. Very historic and interesting as we toured what was left of the palace and learned the history of one of the oldest towns on the Adriatic.

  • St. Mark's Square
    We would have liked more time in Venice, but enjoyed our short walking tour and St. Mark’s Square. We also squeezed in time to sample some local beer and wine before ferrying back to the ship.

  • Venice Walking Tour
    Walked from the ferry pier crossing over the four bridges that link the waterfront. Observed the canals and waterways on our way to St. Mark’s Square.
