Amazing Ship, Not So Amazing Itinerary

Jan 18th, 2020

Overall we really enjoyed the ship. With two days at sea out of a seven day trip, we took advantage of the spa, relaxing spaces and visiting with new friends made on the cruise. Very easy to do with the smaller Viking ship and less than 1,000 passengers. The ship never felt crowded.

Relax cruise on a wonderful ship

Jan 17th, 2020

It was our first experience with Viking, and to be honest, surprised by the beauty and decoration of the ship. The ship is beautiful with many places to read or just simply contemplate the sea. The service is excellent, the food is very good . Just said that we will repeat with Viking

Fall Mediterranean Cruise

Dec 12th, 2019

Great cruise! Was worried about the amount of people on the ship after taking river cruises but the ship never felt crowded. The rooms are spacious with plenty of storage. I did like the room set up of the Avalon rooms better with the beds facing the windows. The food is fine - nothing special. Food on the Avalon river cruise was better and more unique.

November Mediterranean Cruise

Dec 5th, 2019

For our first ocean cruise, we were very happy with the experience. The size of the ship seems nearly perfect and never felt crowded. On the last day, we realized that there were elements/activities that we hadn't even had time to utilize.

Tuscany to Athens

Nov 8th, 2019

Our cruise was wonderful and all we have come to expect from Viking. It was an experience of a lifetime and one to share with family and friends. The precruise trip to Tuscany was another story. The Villa we were assigned to was changed three time although we booked the cruise almost a year in advance. This made is a chore to keep family apprised of our whereabouts. The Villa itself, Villa Barronci, was lovely with beautiful country side. However our room could only be described as awkward. There was a step immediately on entering the room then another within three feet of that into the main bedroom area. There was nowhere to place a suitcase to open it outside of putting it on the floor. This awkwardness made it not up to what I would expect from Viking. The staff was friendly and the food excellent. As for the excursions they were exceptional, especially the winery and farm and San Gimignano, except for the excursion to Florence. It was disappointing and pedestrian. I expected a visit to the Uffizi Gallery and was disappointed.

Mediterranean Adventure.

Oct 13th, 2019

Wonderful experience. The included ships tours were a bit of a let down. The guides often had poor English and the itinerary did not seem to cover all the highlights in the allocated time. Too much “free time” for shopping and not value. For example we took the hop on hop off bus in Barcelona the day after the included ship tour and learnt so much more by doing this.

Great Med Cruise!

Oct 2nd, 2019

This was the best cruise we've taken. The food was wonderful, the entertainment was great, we tried to experience everything on the ship ( couldn't!) and had a lovely time. Not enough entertainment at night, or in the afternoons for those who did not spend all day in the ports. We enjoyed the experience and have already booked our next one@!
