Additional details

Sail Date: Aug 2018

The cruise provided the opportunity to see the Parthenon, the Holy Land, the pyramids, the Temple at Karnak and the ruins at Petra as well as meet the wonderful people who now live in and around these ancient places. The ship provided a wonderful base to strike out from to visit each of these places and a safe, comfortable "home" to come back to at the end of each day. The ship's crew were always helpful, courteous, cheerful, and saw to our every need. The food was delicious in the various venues, and the activities on-board during the days at sea left us no time to be bored. The exercise facilities were first class. Viking Ocean Cruises are exceptional in that they have an intimate feel due to the limited number of passengers compared to the mega-ship cruise lines. We will be sailing with them again in the near future.

Cabin Review

Cabin Deluxe Veranda

The cabin was spacious, the bed was firm, and the electronics were just what we needed.
