Enriching excursions make trip worthwhile

Review for Viking Jupiter to Europe - Western Mediterranean

2-5 Cruises • Age 60s

We dreamed of going to Europe for 20 years prior to retirement. The more we researched, the more places we wanted to see. It was the itinerary of ports and excursions that first drew us Viking. The excursions at each port are varied and enriching guided by locals that not only have college degrees in tourism but are often working professionals in the area in which they are guiding. Art ...

Positive learning experience

First Time Cruiser • Age 70s

We chose this as a first cruise experience. There were rough spots of missing some ports and having poor shore experiences but these were all good for learning. The good ones were great. Ravenna (to see and kneel at Dante's tomb) and Pisa (the tower, cathedral and baptistry) and Barcelona (Gaudi is great) made the trip. We also had delightful hours in Corfu. I recommend taking a custom tour for ...

We chose this cruise/ line based on the itinerary. We booked Aqua Class but didn’t really use anything but Blu. We ate in here every night and were able to choose the Blu menu or Main Dining Room menu. We enjoyed the smaller, quieter space. Food was good, but not sure it was any better than the NCL cruises we’ve been on in the past. The crew was phenomenal- super patient and friendly. I observed ...

A complete humiliation

First Time Cruiser • Age 30s

Except for one waiter at Magenta (from Zimbabwe) and the man of room service, everything was worse. Guest service isn't prepared. I paid one coffee at Starbucks and the system didn't recognize it, then I asked for help. The man at the balcony was very rude, saying I had to pay and I didn't want to. No one gives a damn when you ask for the manager, they offer you to write a letter and send a ln ...

It was an amazing Mediterranean Odyssey

First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

This cruise interested us because of the numerous ports and the countries we stopped at. When we arrived in Venice we were met by Viking where the outstanding service began, they escorted us to our ship and got us settled in our room, which was perfect for our 2 week trip. There were so many daily excursions it was hard to choose. Each day we had fabulous guides and the sights did not disappoint, ...

We chose this trip because of the wonderful itinerary. We did extensions in both Venice and Barcelona, where we stayed in really lovely hotels. These hotels were also located close to many dining choices in walking distance, which was quite convenient and allowed us to get the feel of the area. In Venice, the transportation into the city itself was convenient and frequent. The cruise itself ...

The bad…ok, the food wasn’t bad. are golden corral or applebee’s bad? no, but it’s ...

The splendor of Italy (by bus)

I want to preface my review by stating that we don't care particularly for travel by bus, or "motor coach" as it is cutely described in the fine print. We especially don't like travelling by bus with our 18 month old child. Well if you pick this cruise, be prepared to travel by bus, a lot. The Itinerary Let's start with the obvious - this "Venice" cruise, marketed as starting in Venice ...

Poor food but otherwise good

Food was absolutely dreadful, very poor and not a great selection we honestly struggled even in the buffet. We found the dining room staff were good but the guys seating us were aloof and often sent us to very poorly situated tables such as behind the wait staff table even though throughout the meal there were many tables beautifully situated, it really surprised us. In the buffet we found the ...

Fantastic cruise with superb French food

10+ Cruises • Age 80s

We liked the idea of French food and smaller portions and not American food which we get on Seabourn. We also wanted to visit Croatia in a small ship. We loved the ship and the open bridge policy. We found the Captain, officers and crew terrific and well trained. The ship was attractive but the pool rather small. We would have liked sun umbrellas as there was no shade around that area...nor in the ...
