My wife and I have had wonderful experiences with Viking River cruises. We've always wanted to see Greece so we decided to give their Ocean cruises a try. The education and history on the ports is a major plus. I also like that they aren't trying to sell me something all cruise long. The tour guides on the included excursions were excellent. We booked an extension called Secrets of the Doge's Palace in Venice. That was our favorite part of the trip and highly recommend it. The only part of the cruise that we found inconsistent was the food. Some days it was outstanding, however on a couple of others, it wasn't up to the standard we have come to expect from the River Cruises. My biggest disapointment was that I got seasick the night of the Greek Buffet which I was looking forward to. That is not Viking's fault however.

Cabin Review

Veranda Stateroom

The cabin was excellent. I didn't feel cramped for space at all. Loved the balcony even though it was early March. The bathroom was excellent.

Port Reviews


Croatia had never been on my bucket list, but boy was I surprised. The scenery is beautiful, the people are friendly, and the history is fascinating. I definitely recommend visiting Split and Dubrovnik if you get the chance. I would also recommend going in off season like we did to avoid the crowds.


The tour around the old walled city is wonderful. Had lunch in a little pub off one of the squares of local sausage and fries. It was delicious. The only problem is there were other restaurants that looked outstanding and I couldn't visit them all. As it was the offseason a lot of shops were closed, but that meant instead of shopping, we could just soak in the city's ambience and people.
