Unbelievable Experience

Review for Viking Osiris to Middle East

Herd Viking was the best for an educational experience in comfort. Well it's true. Vicking took care of everything. The historian guide was with us everywhere. Giving us knowledge so interesting I couldn't believe it. Sherry is the best. The Osirus is as billed. Absolutely beautiful and roomy in Scandinavian style. Accommodations were outstanding. Guest to crew ratio made this trip extremely ...

The places visited were spectacular and the sites and scenes along the Nile were almost magical, however the itinerary of getting to and from these places was somewhat cumbersome. There were a total of 6 plane rides including the Abu Simbel option. I believe this is just the nature of the beast one has to go through in order to see these sites. The only negative I would place on the itinerary is ...

My sister and I have always wanted to visit Egypt since we were in grade school (many, many years ago). I had traveled with Viking before and felt that Viking was the only way to go. You are taken care of from first getting off the last plane and everyday while in their company. The Guides were experts on Egypt and the crew were all gracious and so hospitable. This trip was as if we were taken ...

We previously took a Viking cruise through Portugal and really loved it. We always wanted to cruise the Nile and the itinerary looked great so we booked it with our friends. Don't miss this cruise even if you are not a "cruiser' (We are not cruisers) We loved it! the ship is lovely and well kept. We had a balcony which allowed us to enjoy the beautiful scenery! The staff as on all Viking trips ...

We chose this cruise as it was our 25th anniversary and we wanted it to be very special. The ship is brand new and it was sparkling clean. The crew and staff on board were extremely nice, hard working, and very pleasant. The food on board was really good and plentiful. Unlike other cruise ships this is not a feeding frenzy, meals are served 3 times a day (which we really liked) but there is ...

2022 Egypt Cruise with Viking

We booked this cruise to go in early 2020, but then COVID hit and it was postponed. I think it was postponed 4 times and the final delay was because the ship was not built yet; a large part because of COVID. The ship was beautiful and well decorated. The restaurant was very nice; however, it quickly became apparent that the staff had not been trained in serving wine. I had a difficult time ...

Amazing trip to Egypt with Viking

We thoroughly enjoyed our tour of Egypt with Viking. Our flight was delayed out of SFO and the Viking Air staff did a great job getting us rescheduled on a later flight out of Heathrow. From the pickup at the airport to our delivery back, we were well taken care of by our Viking reps. We felt safe the entire time. The Osiris is a beautiful boat and the staff is spectacular. They spent their time ...

We have always wanted to see Egypt by way of a Nile river cruise. This cruise did not disappoint. The limited size of the travel group and that it was a new ship was a plus. The ship was wonderful with many areas to relax and appreciate the countryside as it passed by. On board, it was nice to sample local fair as well as have the ability to have more familiar meals if so desired. The staff ...

Awful! Worst cruise we have ever been on.

Review for MSC Bellissima to Middle East

10+ Cruises • Age 50s

The food was beyond AWFUL - by far the worst on any cruise I’ve ever been on. There was very little choice on the menus compared to Princess cruises which we are used to. MSC need to up their game big time. The food in the MDR’s was lukewarm and just slapped on the plate. There was no attempt at presentation whatsoever. We felt like we were eating in a canteen. I woke up plastered in bed bug ...

Nice ship! But very bad hospitality

Where do I start this was day on the ship. Reception is impersonal. No one to welcome you, no host, nothing at all. You just have to figure it out yourself. I don't feel welcome. Then our suitcases where lost. Nobody doing anything. Called and they say my apologies and they do nothing. After walking around for a long time, we found ourselves a suitcase in another room. The second suitcase with ...
