We had travelled to Greece and Turkey before but there were several new ports for us to see as well as side trips that we had not done before. We loved the experiences with the archaelogical sites, the mythological and the religious and historical sites of Corinth and Ephesus (to which we had been before). Ephesus rates as one of our top five sites we have enjoyed travelling to.
The ability of the ships to get up close into the ports enables travellers to enjoy the port easily by themselves. This was especially true in Thessaloniki where we were able to walk a short way into town to enjoy the local culture and food.
We had travelled with Viking on the British Isles and Norway trip in 2019 and enjoyed the upscale but relaxed environment on the Viking. The attention to detail is apparent in all the services, from housekeeping to dining to beverage service, and excursions.
