An excellent cruise. The Viking staff was excellent. They were friendly, helpful, and provided service with a smile. THe service was outstanding and the entire staff worked hard to provide a great experience for the folks onboard. The shore excursions were well done and enjoyable. The food was the best I have ever had on any cruise. This cruise exceeded my expectations. The variety of food and the food quality were really good. The was a nice variety of dining options available on the ship. The service in the dining areas was the best I ever experienced on a cruise. There were more than an adequate number of activities available on the cruise. In fact, there were so many options available that I had to prioritize which I would do on this cruise and and which I would do on my next Viking Ocean Cruise. This cruise was so good that we are now looking forward to booking our next cruise on Viking Ocean Cruises. Read Less

Viking always does a first class job. We have been on four Viking River Cruises before, one Norwegian Cruise, and one Princess Cruise. We thought we would never do another ocean cruise after having done the river cruises. But when we heard Viking had started doing ocean cruises, we thought we would give is a try. Although the ship is bigger than a river cruise, it is still small enough (900 passengers). Although we sill prefer river cruises, if we go on another Ocean Cruise, it will be Viking. They do it right. The service is impeccable. The food is phenomenal. The shore excursions highly enlightening and enjoyable. We watched other cruses ships pulling into the same ports we were. I can't imagine it is that fun to be on a ship with 2 to 3 thousand people. Again, although I still prefer river cruises, a Viking Ocean cruise is a great experience. Read Less

We wanted to see the Greek islands. We scheduled to leave out of Istanbul but the State Department warning level got too high and Viking was on top of it. They handled all changes to the itinerary very well including resets of the plane transportation. To compensate for the loss of some Turkish port stops, additional Greek and Adriatic ports were substituted along with the usual excursion/tour at each port. We only opted for an optional tour once (in Athens) as the included tours were excellent and covered much in each port. The Viking Sea is of course one of the new ships with under 1000 customers and therefor none of the stress of the larger ships (need to be someplace doing something at all times). Only the Sanorini tour suffered from an excess of people on other tours spoiling the experience. The accommodations were very good although to combat people like me leaving the slider deck door open all the time the off switch to the air conditioner is tied to it. The food was very well prepared with many choices. All staff was friendly and professional. Over 20 years ago I observed the staff response at a Ritz Carlton to each acknowledgement of them (thank you) to be "my pleasure". Likewise for Viking. Read Less
