First time on an Ocean Cruise...we are In our 60's and did not want to be on a cruise the size of a city. Viking is the best way to start and or finish. Will only take Viking as it is the BEST!!! Future booking are inevitable. We want to sail the world with Viking!!! All of the excursions were so informative and thought/organized so well. On board entertainment nightly and the bar service ...

The Viking Sun is an absolutely gorgeous ship, furnished with Norwegian taste which is sleek and elegant in nautical blue and silver-beige. The public spaces are large and comfortable and beautiful, and don't seem crowded because there are so many of them. Free access to high-end spa featuring Nordic options like a heated mineral water spa, sauna, steam room, cold plunge and snow room. The crew ...

This was my first venture across the Atlantic. My husband was in service and had visited some of the countries 50 years ago. When I suggested this cruise, he was interested to see what, if anything, had changed. We chose a pre cruise extension in Rome which was amazing. We spent two days exploring with visits to the Colosseum and Vatican City, St. Peter's Basilica, shopping and restaurants. ...

We had previously cruised with Viking in 2017 on a river cruise from Paris to Normandy. The service, excursions, food, camaraderie, and outdoor dining was very relaxing for us, and educational. We still talk about what we saw and learned. A Viking flyer sent to us detailed their new ocean cruises and brand-new ships. Their ratings were right at the top of the chart. We signed up and were truly ...

The cruise is advertised as off season which is great. The weather is still good and the crowds are significantly smaller. Only disadvantage is shorter daylight hours. It is a very busy cruise with no sea days and lots to see and enjoy. The service on Viking is always excellent. We enjoyed four dinners in the included alternate dining. The Chef's table is definitely a great experience with ...

We were on the ship for 14 days. It was very comfortable and we enjoyed the cruise very much. We never felt like we were crowded. The public spaces were lovely and our cabin was a nice size with an amazing amount of storage. We were given an upgrade to the Penthouse Veranda suite which was a wonderful surprise. The mini bar was generously refreshed daily and the linens were always crisp. We ...

Everything about this cruise was top notch. The itinerary and ports of call were cities/areas that we wanted to visit. Beginning in Rome and ending in Lisbon was fabulous....what could be better! The shore excursions were well planned and all of our guides were very knowledgeable, friendly, articulate and engaging. Our ship, the Viking Sun, was beautiful and meticulously cleaned and maintained and ...

We've cruised on two Viking River Cruises and loved them. We wanted to experience one of Viking's Ocean Cruises. It was above and beyond what we expected! The first night, we worked closely with the Shore Excursion Team in order to make reservations to see Michelangelo's David in Florence. She bent over backwards to try to get us tickets. Thereafter, every time we saw her, she remembered us ...

We had been wanting to do a Mediterranean cruise and this Itinerary came available on short notice. (We don't like planning 18 months ahead to take a cruise) We have travelled before with Viking and knew the level of excellence to expect. The food choices were wonderful. Lots of seafood. Also several specialty eating places. We were in a port everyday which did not allow us to enjoy all ...

We chose this Mediterranean cruise because it offered 11 ort stops counting Rome. Unfortunately we missed one, Marseille, due to stormy weather. We experienced amazingly good weather except for that one overnight. This new ship is totally awesome, and perfect in every way. Lots of comfortable area, indoors and out, to sit and relax. The cabin was perfectly laid out with plenty of closet space, ...
