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 ...

Can't wait to visit Barcelona again.

I was a little worried that Viking would not be able to match its excellence in terms for having such long-standing relationships to make everything on its river cruises so seamless and easy. I should not have ...

Disappointed Traveler

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 ...

Our Retirement Celebration

We are not generally ocean "cruise" people. The ships are too large; the atmosphere to chaotic; it's a challenge to beat other guests to the entertainment or the best dining times and spaces. There is small ...

Excellent Tour of the Mediterranean and Southern Italy and Parts of Spain

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 ...

Ship is beautiful, food was wonderful; expensive, but it was worth it for me.

Beautiful ship, attentive crew, absolutely fantastic food! The ship has a lot of quiet areas, which is nice if you want to get a small group together for cards, etc. I was sorry that the main pool was out of ...
