My husband and I, got to the ship on the 1st March 202 to be told go away for 2hrs. Umm we thought not a good start!. Before boarding no refreshmentsoffered which normally happens on MSC. Room was clean on arrival, and was cleaned daily. No attention to detail but that was fine, felt sorry for the young man as he never stopped. The ship was like a hop on hop off bus, so we had safety ...

Epic Adventure Among the Wonders of Ancient Egypt

From beginning to end the Pharaohs and Pyramid Cruise was superlative in every way. This was our fourth Viking River Cruise and it was over the moon wonderful. The Viking Aton was comfortable and roomy, and Chef Mario Dias cuisine was world class! The Tour/Program Directors were far above my highest expectations with learned, thoughtful, and engaging insights into the magical wonders of ancient ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 70s

On March 6,2024 we arrived in Cairo and were met immediately by a Viking guide who quickly moved us through immigration and out to a waiting van. The airport was very hectic and it would have been most difficult to negotiate it without the help of Gerkis, our Viking guide. After a harrowing drive through the chaotic streets of Cairo, we arrived at the Fairmont Nile City Hotel. It was definitely ...

In this review of our Nile river cruise I provided some travel tips and a day by itinerary review. Travel tips Choose a cruise line that will take care of you from arrival to departure. Cairo is a difficult city to visit on your own. This is not a walking city. You will need to negotiate taxi fares everywhere you go. The airports are also much different than other countries and can be ...

Egyptian history in a nutshell

2-5 Cruises • Age 60s

The Viking Osiris is a great Nile River ship, intimate, new, and designed for this service. Take advantage of all optional trips, especially the hot air balloon at dawn over the Valley of the Kings and the trip to Abu Simbel. The days are long, with little down time, but you cover a lot of history. The boat is relatively informal, no need to dress for dinner, etc., as you may be just coming ...

My wife and I are generally ocean cruise fans, but we took this trip in order to explore the history of Egypt. It's hard to imagine a better itinerary than the one organized by Viking. One of the highlights was Nefertari's tomb. Admission is limited to 100 visitors a day, and on the day we visited over half of those were our fellow passengers. The tour guides (Program Directors in Viking ...

Review of Viking Sky 2023/24 World Cruise. For 4 months per year my wife and I have been avid cruisers. Firstly 18 with Azamara, but since their sad decline we switched to Viking. Now with 8 completed, and enjoyed, it was sad to see how far Viking standards have fallen. We found this on our recent segmented 2 legs on this world cruise. This was after we were initially notified that we were ...

Review for a Panama Canal & Central America Cruise on Viking Neptune

2-5 Cruises • Age 50s

We chose the Viking Panama Canal 16 day cruise because of the opportunity for extended sea days mixed with South American tropical ports of call. This itinerary afforded us ample time aboard to take advantage of multiple Nordic Spa days, daily promenade walks at sunrise, sunsets on our veranda and star lite nights. Quiet times to sunbath with a good book or reflect upon the soul stirring live ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 70s

This was my very first ocean cruise. I had specific requirements in my search for the right cruise. I wasn’t interested in a party atmosphere with loud disco music, I wanted to avoid children running around the ship, and I wasn’t interested in spending time with gambling or casinos. I wanted a cruise with diverse dining options in restaurants that didn’t require me to become best friends with a ...

We were pleased with the visits and activities, ship’s airy feeling and staff . Activities were well organized and tour directors very knowledgeable . It’s a very well designed ship . Food taste was so so . Be warned that Egyptian food is very large in quantity, we were given to choose 1/2 or whole of the main dish. We feel very comfortable in the public places. Our biggest complaint -There ...
