Have done a Viking River Cruise & had great experience, so decided to do Viking Ocean Cruise. Wanted a worry-free trip where all was paid for in advance from pickup at airport to pre-excursion to ship to post-excursion to airport. Embarkation and disembarkation went smoothly with no issues. Ship was top notch with well appointed cabin. Was a great Mediterranean experience with gorgeous views. Cabin service was great. Food and drink was top quality including days we used room service for breakfast and options for friends with dietary was taken care of with no issues. The Spa both free and with fees were top notch. Overall shore excursions good. Some ports were better than others for excursions offered. recommend the Pre-extension: Tuscany,Ultimate Italy. Favorite ports: Venice, Dubrovnik, Corfu, Santorini. Would take another Viking Ocean cruise for the Western Mediterranean area from Barcelona to Florence/Pisa, Rome, Naples & around the Amalfi Coast with possible pre &/or post excursions.Would also look at another Viking River Cruise as well possibly France, or Portugal.
Cabin was well appointed. Temperature was good throughout stay. Cabin was clean and well kept by stewards during our stay. If we had special requests for items such as ice several times a day it was addressed for us. Bathroom was good size. Liked the heated tile floor and the comfortable size shower. Toiletries and towels replenished as needed without asking. Storage for suitcases and clothes was sufficient. Provided were binoculars, sufficient area for phone and tablet charging; bathrobes for use on the ship. Water supplied as needed and free minibar for items available in room. Made the stay great.
