Exotic Journey on a Beautiful Ship

Review for Viking Osiris to Middle East

First Time Cruiser • Age 70s

We chose this cruise because seeing Egypt was on my husband's "bucket list" and because close friends who have traveled with Viking before invited us. We made our reservations in the depths of the pandemic - a hopeful and optimistic gesture toward the future. We were not disappointed. As Viking newcomers, we knew of Viking's reputation, but experiencing the level of service and excellence ...

This replaced 2 July 2022 Russian river cruises. The learning of the history and current status of Eqypt was superb. It's not a place to go on your own....amazingly educated guides. They prepped us for all events, the when-were-how to get ready and how we would proceed. Only 50 passengers so had reasonably small #s on excursions. Great ability to move us around without losing anyone and keeping us ...

We were very interested in visiting Egypt and Jerusalem so this was the right opportunity!! The trip was great and it combined fun and knowledge of the Egyptian civilization and the Middle East!! Jerusalem was just great, the melting point of cultures and faith!! Walking the different quarters of old Jerusalem was a journey back in time!! It was great to visit the Churches of the Nativity ...

First class all the way!! First experience with Viking and it was absolutely terrific! The only disappointment I have was the fact that the Grand Egyptian Museum STILL has not opened. Obviously, Viking has no control over this, and the museums we did visit in Cairo were fantastic. Our guides were excellent and made the museums very enjoyable. The morning hot air balloon ride is not to be ...

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 ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

The overall trip was fabulous. We had never taken a Viking River cruise before but we had heard good feedback from people we know that had done river cruises with Viking before. The entire trip was well choreographed, starting with the arrival at the Cairo airport. The Program Director (Hany) was excellent and we felt very lucky to have had his guidance and expertise on the entire tour. He was ...

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 ...

Bucket list item. Hotels very beautiful, good restaurant. Alot of walking, uneven terrain, loose rocks, and very hot in Oct. Extremely busy but so exciting. No need to worry about entertainment your too tired after excursions. Sleep is much welcome. Swan rooms very nice. Windows larger than those on Europe river boats. Tons of storage and even a couch to relax on. Service from staff was ...

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 ...
