Giving it "your all" takes on new meaning with Viking

A Mediterranean ocean cruise- what could be better than that? Well, okay, perhap a Mediterranean cruise in the spring as opposed to the beginning of December - but weather be damned, Viking handled its part of the ...

Lovely Cruise

We wanted to see Spain and Portugal. This Cruise fit the bill. We don’t especially like big ocean cruises, so we liked the smaller ship idea. I can’t really fault the ship, but since we have only been on one ...

Wonderful ship

The ship is just the right size. Not too big....we still felt like we had plenty of room and not overcrowded. We were also able to have some of the same staff and get to know them a bit. We were lucky enough to ...

First Christmas Time Cruise - Magic in the Air!

A cut above the rest

We were interested in going on a high end cruise. Viking filled the bill! From start to finish you can tell the difference. They call it the thinking mans cruise, and they are right. No loud party atmosphere. Soft ...

We have traveled with Viking River before and many other Ocean Cruise lines. Wanted to see how Viking handled Ocean cruising. We were not disappointed. Embarkation in Rome was a bit disjointed as the Pier is a ...
