Enjoying a beautiful morning on the Viking Sea.

We chose this cruise because of the itinerary. We had heard so much about the beauty of Slovenia and Croatia, it became a “must see” for both of us. As for seeing the antiquities of Greece, this was a lifetime goal. As a former sixth grade teacher, what I taught for so many years came to life. The Viking experience was wonderful, as expected. The goal of every crew member was to make our trip ...

We chose Viking because we know several people that have sailed with Viking and they thoroughly enjoyed their cruises. The Empires of the Mediterranean was chosen because of the ports in which it docked. All of the cities were wonderful, historic and interesting. All of the tour guides we had were very knowledgeable and interesting. Our favorites were Dubrovnik, Corfu and Athens. A couple of ...

Destinations! Unparalleled destinations, great experiences throughout the cruise. Wonderful food and terrific guest service. The crew is outstanding. Need better communication on air reservations and embarkation process. The cruise is worth every penny! If you want an outstanding, once in a lifetime experience, then Viking Ocean is for you. The reservation process, especially the air ...

We wanted to see more of the Mediteranean and spend a few more days in our favorite places in Italy. This itinerary fit the bill. We took advantage of all the free amenities that we could. We did every single one of the immersion tours with local guides as well as a couple prepurchased extras. The local guides felt like friends by the end of each adventure. Very rarely ordered drinks ...

Service throughout the ship was extraordinary. Ship itself was beautiful and elegant. Food was delicious and of course plentiful. Scenery and ports were great. Shows were enjoyable. Service in specialty restaurants was sub-par but that’s probably a one off. Don’t do the pre and post excursions. Very disappointing. Almost nothing offered in Venice. We had to leave the hotel (Hilton, which was ...

We had never been on an ocean cruise, but had used Viking for our first river cruise. We liked that the ship was smaller than most ocean cruises, and we loved the experience we had on the river cruise. So this was our first and before the cruise was over, we signed up for another cruise! The food was outstanding no matter where we ate. The staff was amazing, and were always polite, went out of ...

We chose this cruise as an appropriate addition to a week of touring northern Italy. We had taken a Viking River Cruise on the Danube the prior summer and thoroughly enjoyed it. So we figured that the next logical step would be a Viking Ocean Cruise. Little did we know how spectacular it would be. The ship itself was sparklingly new and fresh, with every amenity that we could wish. Our cabin was ...

Timing and destination were our reasons for this cruise. embarkation was a fiasco due to a last minute change in ports due to weather.. poor or no communications between staff and customers and we had to wait in line for 5 hours. sometimes in the cold! poor cooperation with italian port security made getting back on board after an excursion a real hassel. overall the staff was excellent, ...

Most of this cruise was pretty wonderful. We were so glad we chose to spend a few extra days in Venice before embarkation, as inexplicably, when we got to Paris, the last leg of the journey had been "cancelled" and our bags taken off the plane. Air France got us back on the plane, and assured us our bags would also be put back on the plane, but that did not happen. We had to scramble through the ...

This was our first time on Viking Ocean cruise on the Viking Sea. We bought a larger penthouse stateroom and were very happy with the size and room to put away clothes. The ship, cabin, dining and stateroom steward were great. The entertainment was just OK. The ports and included excursions were great. We enjoyed ourselves! Here are the shortcomings: Luggage check (at the ship) was a 1/2 ...
