Good cruise, great food and wonderful cabin. A few of the included tours didn't meet the standards for the rest of the cruise. Especially in Porto, the tour guide did not need the level of the tour guides in other cities. Had a great time in Paris, the tour guide was very knowledgeable. Food on the shop was was great! The spa was very comforting as well. This is our second Viking Ocean Cruise and I rate them very highly. Suburb quality. Met several wonderful people in the wait staff. Going off season was not a disadvantage. We dressed accordingly and had a wonderful visit. Actually much better than in season when the temperature is much hotter. I love Barcelona! All of the sightseeing is great there. I'm a fan of Gaudi. He's absolutely fantastic. What a great mind! Service in the restaurant is fabulous, the quality of the food in restaurant is suburb.

We had an excellent experience on our Viking Ocean cruise called the Mediterranean Odyssey. The ship was the appropriate size for our interests, The included land tours were a highlight for us. We enjoyed the dining options in the evenings. We would recommend this cruise for anyone who wants to do more than just sit on a ship and watch the waves! We went to ports that had special attractions for us. The ship crew made sure we had a good experience on all our tours. One of our most favorite tour was a guided bike trip into the mountains on the Greek island of Corfu. We had an opportunity to meet the local folks in their own homes. Our cabin was an appropriate size with an include veranda. Each of the suites had a veranda which made for arrivals and departures from a port more interesting since you could watch the action of the crew. Read Less

This was a superb trip on the new Viking Sea cruises. The shore excursions were well-timed, varied and had knowledgeable guides. Every aspect of the trip was handled without a glitch by Viking. Each port had something unique. The onboard entertainment was as good as many Broadway events. The shows included a Beatles review as well as a an ABBA review. The ship offered varied dining experiences with attentive wait staff and original art in each dining area. In fact, there is original art throughout the ship. The enrichment included lectures by experts on geography, history, archeology -- every lecture was interesting and well-delivered. It was a little extra touch that the lecture were recorded and available for onboard viewing, in case you missed the event live. The dance band -- which also provided music for the shows -- was fantastic. The leader was an amazing musician. We even had a cruise director who sang opera for us. All cabins have a balcony! And the smaller size of just under 1000 passengers is just perfect. Every detail has been considered -- down to having USB charging ports in the room. Read Less

This was our first trip to the western Mediterranean. We embarked in Barcelona after an efficient and pleasant trip from the airport. The ship and cabins are beautiful and comfortable. Felt like home from the beginning. All of the dining options were wonderful. Excellent variety of food customized to your liking. We especially enjoyed Manfriedis Italian specialty restaurant. Mamsens gave a little hint of Norwegian delicacies. The bar service and wine selection were some of the best we have ever had. We have never taken advantage of so many of the entertainment venues. They seemed to be tailored to the adult crowd with enrichment lectures of interest to older adults. We also enjoyed all of the shore excursions. Those that were included were ones we would have taken anyway so we only went on 2 that were not included. The post cruise trip to Iceland was fabulous! We would do this again without reservation!
