A great Cruise of a Life Time.

All of the food was top notch. The only issue was the fact that the Chef's Table had a different menu each night. We do not eat DUCK so we had to cancel. There needs to be more of a selection at the Chef's ...

Beautiful vessel but not quite ready for prime time as of 7/1/18

We had been wanting to try Viking Ocean as an alternative to our previous favorites, Windstar (yachts, not sailing ships) and Regent, so we chose this one week itinerary from Venice to Rome and were joined by long ...
