My wife and I had a fantastic cruise on the Viking Mars. Out visit started in Athens Greece for an extended 4 days and ended in Barcelonia Spain for an extra 2 days. All of the ports we visited and the extursions to local sites were great. Outr 4 day extension in Athens proved to be especially enjoyable. I can not overstate the benefits of traveling with many others to various historical sites and having the best guides to provide context.
The experience onboard the ship during transits, meals, shows, special events, etc. were top notch. The crew was fantastic in every aspect. They were all very helpful and accessible. There was never a time we had to wait in long lines or feel crowded on board. The environment on the ship was always comfortable, open, friendly and pleasurable. We were especially impressed with the onboard washers and dryers available for self use. All of the passengers on the trip were very engaging and friendly. It was truly a great experience. Thanks, Viking.
