Our first cruise was an amazing experience

First Time Cruiser • Age 70s

We chose this cruise because my wife's family if Serbian-Croatian and we wanted to visit her ancestor's homeland. The trip exceeded our expectations in every way. The Viking staff; from arrival at Venice airport, to our departure in Athens, could not have been more accommodating and helpful. Seamless transfers to and from the ship are always welcomed; be it the days of embarkation or debarking ...

This was our first ocean cruise after having enjoyed two river cruises with Viking. The standards of high quality were across the board. Really enjoyed the entire cruise experience. The ship was outstanding. Loved the Explorer’s Lounge and pool areas. We liked the general dining even more than the restraints requiring reservations, which I think speaks to the general quality of the food offerings. ...

Scenic and well-organized cruise

First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

We chose this cruise primarily because we were interested in Croatia and Corfu, and this itinerary included both. We were able to work with our agent, Enzo, to accommodate a deviation so we traveled independently through Europe and arrived in Venice to embark. The ship was immaculate, service outstanding, meals perfect for our dietary needs, and the shore excursions were well-organized and ...

The trip was splendid. Two years ago, we took a marvelous Viking river cruise up the Danube that covered the eastern side of the former Yugoslavia (now Serbia & Croatia), so we chose to go down the western side (Croatia and Montenegro) when we saw that the Orion was going to make the trip. Having lived in Europe for about 10 years, and having been to Venice and Athens 3 and 4 times, we found ...

6-10 Cruises • Age 70s

The countries were those we hadn't been to. Most of the excursions were great. The rooms are spacious and clean. The service was excellent. We especially liked the 4X4 driving in Montenegro, the Fortification Walk, the National Forest/Falcon Place, Olympia and the Murano Glass. We were with another couple and liked that there were tables for four. We liked the Italian dining room and ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

From the first embarkation, service onboard the ship was very professional and attentive. Choice of restaurants was also very good, although it took us all week to get a time to dine at Manfredis. The process to get a reservation could be improved. Despite this, all dining experiences were top notch. food quality very high. Silver Spirits package was definitely worth the extra money. The ...

2-5 Cruises • Age 60s

1st Viking cruise. Travelled Adriatic Sea from Venice. Did the pre cruise hotel stay at Hilton Molino Stucky and enjoyed the hotel and location despite it not being in Venice proper. Embarkation was smooth and we enjoyed our first meal in the World Cafe. That became our favourite venue for dinner as the aft deck was wonderful to sit out for dinner and catch the sail out and the sunset ...

2-5 Cruises • Age 50s

It was our 25th Anniversary and we wanted something special. We had heard great reviews about Viking Cruises and they lived up to all of it. We stayed 4 days in Venice to visit relatives prior to the cruise. Embarkation and Disembarkation were VERY smooth. We did not wait like we have in the past on other cruise lines. Ports and shore excursions were very good! We really enjoyed the fact we ...

Not Viking's Sparkling Moment

10+ Cruises • Age 70s

We choose this cruise, due to the many interesting ports, we'd not visited. Viking Oceans is trying to do, too much, too fast, and losing sight of the small details, involved in "Luxury Cruising". We'd sailed on Viking River Cruises numerous times and on Viking Star, loving everyday. Not so with this cruise, Bay of Bangle, involved a different 'hurdle' daily. Embarkation in Mumbai was a ...

My wife and I were eager to try Viking as we've heard multiple stellar reviews (from friends and family both). As someone who has in the past been on a lot of cruises with multiple different cruise lines I can sum up our experience on this cruise by simply stating it exceeded our wildest expectations in every category and has ensured two new Viking customers for life. The ship itself is ...
