Viking Ocean Rome (Civitavecchia) Cruise Reviews

Vigeland Park in Oslo, Norway

This was taken on the ship at sunset in the bar on the top deck
We thought this so clever and unusual just like all the other designs and thoughtfulness of the decor

Very good, but disappointed to miss Naples and Venice

This was our second Viking ocean cruise, two weeks from Civitavecchia to Piraeus via the Adriatic. Viking reps met us right by the luggage carousels at Rome airport but embarkation was slowed down by health screening at the quay. Our departure transfer was at a civilised 9.45 am though still dropped us at Athens airport 1½ hours before our check-in opened. Along with ships’ modern Nordic ...

We took this cruise to fulfill a bucket list item. We committed a year prior to the cruise, and planned all the port explorations during that time. Covid was just beginning to lift, so there were many conflicting requirements between the airports, the airlines, the hotel and the cruise company. There were ample cruise staff to help interpret the requirements, and to get us through the ordeal. ...

The pre and post cruise trips were great, the guides were knowledgeable, friendly, helpful, all excursions were first rate.

First Time Cruiser • Age 70s

We have always heard about Viking and how good a company it is. We are not big cruisers but thoroughly enjoyed this trip. My only, and small, complaint was that on disembarkation and travel to the cruise terminal, we were just directed to go places without an explanation of what we were doing. There is some anxiety involved in travel and not knowing the purpose of our leaving the bus and then ...

This cruise was originally called: "Cities of Antiquity & The Holy Land" and was renamed merely "Cities of Antiquity" after Israel and Cyprus were removed from the itinerary. We had a wonderful time and saw some truly remarkable sites. The ports of Pompeii, Heraklion, Rhodes, Malta, Turkey, Athens, and Santorini were beautiful and filled with so much history. Boarding We flew into Rome, ...

My sister and I had not been on a cruise for quite a few years and had heard about Viking Cruises, so when got a special offer, we decided to go. Everything seems to be planned pretty well, but if we had it to do over, we would have gone a couple days early so we could have visited Rome. Our room steward, Tito, provided very good room service. We always had a clean towel or ice when we needed ...

We wanted a cruise over the holidays for our family, including our son and daughter in their mid twenties. We chose this as we had never been to Athens and our son had never been to Rome. We wanted a family trip over the hoiidays to interesting places and not just beaches. We got off to a bad start with travel complications and rather than arriving at 1:00 PM we did not arrive until close to ...

This was our 3rd Viking Cruise and it did not disappoint. It was so great! The Viking Staff members in each and every phase of the cruise are friendly and polite and excellent at their jobs. The food is always delicious and the excursions run like clockwork. Viking takes special care to hire the best excursion guides, most of whom have first-hand knowledgr about whatever country we are in. Our ...

Excellent cruise, just as expected from Viking. Everytime we cruise, the service, food is consistent! Wonderful New Years Eve party and incredible brunch New Years Day, including an omelette and pasta station. We really enjoy relaxing in the restaurant as well as eating at World Cafe. We love that at World cafe you can order steaks, etc and they are made fresh as you wait. Embarkation was ...

This was our very first cruise of any kind, having been an owner of a sailboat. We thoroughly enjoyed all aspects of the cruise. We had been watching PBS for years, always seeing the ads for Viking River Cruises. And we were pleasantly surprised how much we enjoyed this cruise. We kept looking for a great deal. When one came online, we jumped at the chance. The ship was impeccably clean. ...

This was our first time to Rome and Barcelona and we fell in love with the beauty, history and people of these iconic cities. We loved all the ports and wish the cruise would have been a couple of days longer to see more sites. Ship was beautiful, stateroom was great- although we didn't spend much time in it. For us, cruise director was lacking in ability, personality and knowledge. (Please ...
