We wanted to explore Rome, Barcelona, and points in between; this cruise afforded us the opportunity to travel safely and with few worries. The Viking Star was the cleanest ship imaginable, and our cabin was immaculate. Staff members Made and Maha kept it that way the entire cruise, and accommodated our few special requests. We enjoyed all restaurants and cuisine we tried -- World Cafe, ...

We loved the ambience of the ship - light Danish wood, great excursions, excellent service, great food ( esp. in the main dining area - awesome buffet)! Specialty dining rooms were ok but service not quite as top notch. We also liked the spa - good pools, hot, cold, and rippling, rooms were spacious as was bathroom. Loved heated floors. Washer/dryer facilities good too. The “included beers and ...

Cruise was flawless, many issues with booking

We chose this cruise for the itinerary and reputation of the cruise line. Once we landed in Rome everything was flawless. However, dealing with Viking in the U.S. was very frustrating. We had originally booked a cruise to Cuba and cancelled it after they made several port changes. We wanted to use the "cancel for any reason" Viking insurance to cover some of the cost of this trip. It took 4 ...

We had never been on a cruise and my husband chose this one because of the area and Vikings history and reputation. It was WONDERFUL and we would do it again. The cabin was roomy and very clean. We had a veranda and room very well lit my husband enjoyed the TV. Service to the room was fantastic. Bathroom was very accommodating. Everyone was friendly and helpful. Disbarkation and ...

We decided to take the Mediterranean cruise because we wanted to see the ports of call (they ended up cancelling the Tunis stop which was very disappointing) especially Barcelona. We went there first for 5 days prior to the cruise...then flew over to Rome to catch the ship on our own. The embarkation area was very confusing and no one seemed to be able to help us when we first got to a Viking ...

This was our first time sailing with Viking Ocean Cruises and I have to say it was by far the best cruise we have ever taken. We have sailed before on the regular cruise lines and were very impressed by all that Viking had to offer. We were met at the airport in Rome and taken by bus to the port of embarkation in Civitavecchia. Our checkin was quick and efficient. We were greeted as we ...

We had done the China cruise/tour several years ago and loved it so, when I saw that Viking was going to build ocean-going vessels, I signed us up immediately. This Rome to Barcelona cruise is very different from the China trip. We loved that trip very much because of the historical sites we were able to see, but found that it was very busy with excursions, although wonderful, which were ...

We only had one problem on this entire cruise and it was a relatively minor one. We chose to arrange our own transportation from the Rome Airport to the Civitavecchia port. It was a taxi cab and the entrance to the part of the port where the ship boards was blocked by security for some unknown reason. In retrospect we should have asked the cab driver to translate for us and find out how to board ...

Price was right, time was good, went with friends. Rome port was disappointing, should have had more time to check out Rome. Ship was great,food was good, crew was very good. At end of cruise would be nice to have some time in Barcelona, like what was missing at start of cruise. Entertainment was ok, more movies would be good. The one restaurant that was serving alternative prepared ...

The cruise went to ports we had not seen and we were extremely pleased with the shore excursions which were included in the cost of the cruise. All of the services, food, accommodations, and comfort were truly FIRST CLASS. Viking has far exceeded our expectations. It seems that Viking put their "spies" on all of the other cruise lines and copied every single positive and favorable amenity, and ...
