Have done a Viking River Cruise & had great experience, so decided to do Viking Ocean Cruise. Wanted a worry-free trip where all was paid for in advance from pickup at airport to pre-excursion to ship to post-excursion to airport. Embarkation and disembarkation went smoothly with no issues. Ship was top notch with well appointed cabin. Was a great Mediterranean experience with gorgeous views. ...

Had done Viking River Cruise in past and service and venue was excellent so decided to do a Viking Ocean Cruise. Embarkation to Disembarkation went smoothly and same quality as the river cruise with Viking. They set up pre-extension and post-extension and was excellent with excellent service, accommodations were very good.The pre-extension guide was superb. During the cruise itself, food was ...

Second time with Viking, first time on one of their ocean cruises. We were part of a group of 22 that go on a "big trip" every two years. After a successful 15-day Viking river cruise, we decided to do a Viking ocean cruise in an area that most of us had never been. We started in Venice, had four stops down the Ionian Coast ending with various stops in Greece. Dining was really nice. ...

To celebrate our 30th anniversary, we chose the Viking Empires of the Mediterranean cruise and it was indeed fantastic. The Viking ship is beautiful and never feels crowded! The service is impeccable, the stewards are incredibly accommodating and personable, and the entire staff is to notch. The lounge areas are great, especially the Explorers lounge at the front of ship where we watched many a ...

The ship was very comfortable, perfect size. Service was wonderful, excursions were very informative. We did our air through Viking which was helpful all except making a change of planes in Frankfurt. We were very rushed and just made it to our connection when they were boarding. I would avoid that airport in the future. Embarkation and Disembarkation went very smoothly. Transfers to and from ...

We were looking for a special way to celebrate our 35th anniversary and decided on the Viking Mediterranean Odyssey. Neither of us had ever been to Europe and it had always been a dream of mine. We had heard so much good about Viking that we decided to go for it! Had a rough start-flight was cancelled and arrived late missing Venice...but that wasn't on Viking. Once on board, it was all good! ...

Viking Star was the second cruise out of a 4 cruise itinerary. I wasn’t sure it would be our style but we loved it from the first moment on board. We felt so loved and welcomed. The entire crew and staff were visible all the time with a cool towel and drink after returning from side tours. The food was very good but not as good as QM2. Room service was great! Explorer Lounge was our spot for after ...

Perfect Way to Explore and Learn About Mediterranean

Viking cruises are for adults who want to learn something about the places they visit and don't want to be "nickel and dimed" for every little extra. Embarkation and disembarkation were quick and smooth. With only about 900 passengers, you're never fighting crowds. The service was exceptional on this ship, with very happy crew members. The ports were a good variety of Mediterranean stops. ...

First time on Viking and now I have no choice but to only use them. Have cruised on three other lines but once you go Viking it sets a standard that can't be matched. The ship, rooms, staff, food, drinks, etc., etc. are such a step above anyone else we have been with. It seemed like everyone of the staff knew are first names within 24 hours on being on board. I was especially impressed with ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 70s

We chose this cruise because of the range of countries, ports and variety of excursions offered. We loved Croatia, a country we might never otherwise have seen. Corfu was beautifully exotic. In Naples we toured Herculaneum rather than Pompeii and were surprised how immersive the tour was, being able to walk through the buildings and get up close to the frescoes, even walking on the original ...
