  3. Viking Sky
We had always heard about how nice cruising was on Viking River Cruises, but were hesitant to try it. We had never been on a river cruise, but plenty of ocean cruises with another line, so we decided to try a Viking Ocean cruise first. We went on the Viking Sky and did their Iconic Mediterranean and absolutely loved it! Viking met our expectations and beyond! There was another couple with us who had never been on a cruise before. They jokingly (and part seriously) told us they were spoiled and would never sail with any other line. Viking's service, food, rooms and just about everything is top notch! We enjoyed it so much, that we booked a river cruise while on board the Sky. We'll be going in June to Amsterdam and sailing down the Rhine to Basel. There will be six couple in our party. Can you tell we love Viking? We can't wait! I would recommend Viking to all my friends.

Cabin Review

Cabin 4053
270 sq. ft. Deluxe Veranda
Small, but still manageable. We only showered and slept in our rooms - there was so much to do or see elsewhere on the ship. Why hang out in your room? The veranda was lovely and I'm happy we were able to use it a lot of times. Unfortunately the weather was a bit rough for the second half of our 7 day cruise, but the free wine at lunch helped sooth the seas. The common, or public rooms were well appointed and felt like being in someone's home.

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews

  • City Tour
    The weather was chilly, windy and with lots of rain. We got wet sitting in the top of the bus because the windows had no covering. There was no room on the first level and we were not allowed to stand. We enjoyed the flexibility of the hop on hop off program and we were able to see many of Barcelona's treasures.

    Rainy, but educational.
    We went out on our own afterward and took a tram car around the city.
