Terrible disembarkation and Athens extension

The ship was fine and to Vikings usual standards. If I thought embarkation at Istanbul was bad it was nothing compared to Athens. DON'T bother with the overpriced Athens extension. We had to leave our stateroom by 8am , ( no hot water in the room that day)sat on the ship for over an hour, in fact it felt as if we were just dumped off the ship before the most disorganised, chaotic ...

Very good, but disappointed to miss Naples and Venice

This was our second Viking ocean cruise, two weeks from Civitavecchia to Piraeus via the Adriatic. Viking reps met us right by the luggage carousels at Rome airport but embarkation was slowed down by health screening at the quay. Our departure transfer was at a civilised 9.45 am though still dropped us at Athens airport 1½ hours before our check-in opened. Along with ships’ modern Nordic ...

We scheduled our Mediterranean Odyssey cruise in 2018 for April 2020. After cancelation in 2020 and then again in 2021 due to Covid we finally were able to cruise in April of 2022, an exciting event. Preparations for travel to meet Covid requirements were a little stressful, but we successfully navigated the many requirements for the airlines and Viking. We flew into Barcelona Spain to embark on ...

Best. Cruise. Ever.

I should put that into perspective. We are not well seasoned cruisers with 20+ cruises. This was our 8th cruise, with the 7 prior cruises on mass-market lines and on large (2000+ pax) ships. This was our first cruise on a small ship (<1000 pax) on a luxury cruise line. We'd been reading about Viking on CC and watching YT videos, so we had a sense of what to expect on the ship. However, ...

Viking not for us

We have done over 70 cruises with a number of different cruise companies and had read, and seen on You Tube, very positive views on Viking so we thought we would try it out - in retrospect a mistake. The good points - the ship is well planned; the décor was pleasant and it’s easy to find your way about. There is ample deck space and the retractable roof over the pool is a great facility. The ...

Perfection!

We chose this cruise because we had heard such great things about Viking. We had been to Greece before on land only, but wanted to delve deeper into Greek and biblical history. This trip did not disappoint! From start to finish, even amid Covid precautions, the entire experience was perfection. From the onboard entertainment to the incredible excursions, it was the trip of a lifetime. We ...

This cruise was originally called: "Cities of Antiquity & The Holy Land" and was renamed merely "Cities of Antiquity" after Israel and Cyprus were removed from the itinerary. We had a wonderful time and saw some truly remarkable sites. The ports of Pompeii, Heraklion, Rhodes, Malta, Turkey, Athens, and Santorini were beautiful and filled with so much history. Boarding We flew into Rome, ...

After much consideration of the challenges that may get in our way (e.g. Omicron surge, testing requirements, masking, airline restrictions), we are so glad that we took this cruise and it lived up to our expectations. My husband and I, along with our adult son and his girlfriend booked this cruise last summer when Viking was offering deals upon reopening the World, we were looking for a holiday ...

We decided to take it as we usually spend the holidays all by ourselves as our children have families of their own. Two dear friends were with us. Starting in Athens, we wound our way around the northern mediterranean seeing many great new sights. Ending in Barcelona, which was a treat, so much to see. We already have a similar voyage this summer, going out of Venice, then around the islands ...

Setting Realistic Expectations and Going with the Flow

We had been on several large ocean cruises before and to be honest I hated all of them due to the number of people, kids running crazy and unsupervised, loud casinos, photographers forcing me to take pictures I didn't want and the mediocre food. So I was very hesitant to book another ocean cruise. However, we took a Viking River Cruise and loved it so we thought lets try the ocean cruise. Free ...
