Sail Date: Dec 2019

This was our first cruise and we were accompanied by all our adult children. The dates were perfect in that all of us were off from work. Sailing in December avoided high temperatures and all our excursion destinies were not crowded. The ship was far beyond anything we expected with respect to the cabin, the service, the spa the food and the drinks. In the spa there is a snow room that was a new experience to us. No young kids on board was a real plus. The silver package that allows you to almost unlimited cocktails is highly recommended especially as it also can be used for wine pairing in the more sophisticated restaurants on board. Every crew member we met was friendly and accommodating. It was so enlightening to be treated that way. Our cabin was kept in perfect condition and our beds made up twice a day. The ship itself is near perfect in condition, absolutely spotless.The excursions were overall very well organized. The guides with the exception of one entertaining. We will absolutely do this again and indeed have already booked a cruise with Viking for August 2020.

Cabin Review

Spotless cabin. Great bed. Modern Accessories, Well kept by crew, Shower is perfect with plentiful and strong water stream.

Port Reviews

Crete (Heraklion)

Very long bus ride to and from, ruins were very underwhelming. Guide was not great either.Would not recommend.


Great tour, well organized, intriguing place to visit.


Picturesque small town but very touristic and crowded.
