I love getting tea in the Wintergarden - served most afternoons at 4. Delicious & relaxing. Good time to read an recharge after a day in port.
The included tour in Barcelona tours the outside of La Sagrada Familia. When I go back, I’ll pay extra for the inside tour!
Viking Sky docked in a French port.
Leaning Tower of Pisa is on one of the included excursions! A lot to see here and we got to visit on Christmas.

Very good, but disappointed to miss Naples and Venice

Viking won us over on our first river cruise last year, and our first ocean cruise was just a fine.

Wonderful opportunity to see Athens, Crete, Rhodes, Ephesus, Troy and Istanbul. Beautiful ship, wonderful food and the service that makes Viking famous. The shore excursions had informative and friendly guides. We visited three UNESCO World Heritage sites- my favorite was the medieval walled city on Rhodes. The ruins at Ephesus were incredible. We both enjoyed the many friendly dogs in ...

Loved the cruise. Not very crowded but the staff and service was excellent. Had a great time on my excursion's that I took. Had great weather the entire trip. Had a great adventure as this was my first time cruising on a cruise ship. Got to have time to actually get to see the sights and then relaxing afterwards. Everyone was extremely nice and friendly, from the bartenders to the cabin crew. I ...

From start to finish another wonderful experience with Viking. We started our trip with a 3 day extension in Rome where we were placed in a 5 Star Hotel in the middle of the city, which gave us the opportunity to walk to so much of Rome. Each port gave us so many choices of what/where to explore and we are grateful for those choices. As new explorers we didn't really know what places to choose ...

I loved all the interesting nooks to sit & read. After being off ship on excursions, I enjoyed eating a nice lunch & then reading my afternoon away. The staff were all wonderful! Mayte our room steward was fabulous. I appreciate the level of education for the shore excursion guides. Anton in Turkey was amazing! We purchased the spirits package so we enjoyed the bars. My husband liked the gym & ...

My husband and I did the Western Mediterranean Viking Cruise that began on Dec. 20, 2023. We had previously taken two river cruises with Viking and this was our first ocean cruise experience with this cruise line. The service was amazing on the ocean liner, same as they offer on their river cruises. The biggest difference was that the ocean cruise has hundreds of more passengers than their river ...

The food was great. The ports were interesting and well-timed. Since it was off season, there were no crowds and guides had more time to show us things. I love Viking Ocean ships - spa, pools (all heated and 1 covered so you can swim even if cool outside), and incredible staff. I highly recommend. The entertainment is not as flashy as some cruise lines - but I enjoy the more low key musical shows ...

I chose this cruise as it was on sale. It was off season and I loved that. I thought there was a crowd as we toured but I learned that during the summer there were long lines. We had basically no waiting times and we were never packed in. The extensions with tours in Athens were great. We did almost all the things we wanted to do. In the Rome extension, they did have some things they provided but ...

We went on a River cruise last year and it was perfect. The ocean cruise was great but it did not have the intimacy of the River cruise. The ship offered more - spa indoor pool and sauna several restaurants. It would depend on personal preference. For us we preferred the River cruise and the chefs talk nightly about his dishes and the focus on each ports culture. The week before the cruise I ...

We enjoyed our River Cruise in 2016 with Viking on the Danube very much, tours, dining and onboard experience that we decided to try Ocean Cruise to get a different Viking experience. Our tours were interrupted in 2020 and we were excited to be back in 2022. The dining was a very good experience, always a good variety in the World Cafe and the more formal dining areas were excellent. The staff in ...

To visit the greek isles and do it off season. All of the crew wore masks and were both knowledgeable and helpful thru out. The food was plentiful and varied making for wonderful meals. Hi tea at 4;00 pm was always a nice prelude into the evening activities. Each and every shore excursion was perfectly timed and supported by knowledgeable and friendly guides. All of the shore excursions were ...
