Amazing experience
"Viking was very highly rated and the cruise was going where we wanted to go. The restaurants and food was exceptional and we really liked the idea of an excursion was included in each port. The staff was very..."Read More

Viking Mediterranean & Italian Sojourn

Review for Viking Sky to Europe - Western Mediterranean

First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

We booked this cruise over 2 years ago and was seriously thinking about cancelling it and rebooking for a later date. We didn't due to no availability until 2023. Hind site is 20/20 and we should have canceled. We embarked in Barcelona and disembarked in Venice. This was first ever once in a lifetime cruise. We had high expectations due to great Viking reviews. Viking was being very cautious ...

My Husband and I boarded this cruise in Barcelona, and continued for 15 days until we reached Venice. Ports included Sete (Montpelier) Marseille, VilleFranche Sur Mer (Monaco), Florence, Rome, Naples, Messina, Bari, Crotone, SIbenik Croatia and Venice. We chose Viking because we really liked the destinations we were allowed. Also, they allowed us to cancel for any reason prior to the cruise - ...

My 83 year old mother and I chose Viking as her end all get all Cruise. Her grand finale’. We loved the itinerary and added days on the front and back end. Thank God for those days. Once we boarded, early as we had a nice suite, we were told we could not leave the ship unattended via letter in our stateroom. At any port. This was not communicated before hand. This is how it works. Must be ...

Review for Viking Sky to Baltic Sea

2-5 Cruises • Age 70s

Iceland was rated a Stage 3 country right before we left for the cruise. We had Covid tests within 72 hrs of departure. We were tested daily and restricted from going off on our own. We wore masks in the public areas of the ship, on buses, and any time (which was rare) that we were indoors. We wore contact tracing lanyards everywhere we went. There were reminders of handwashing and sanitizing ...

We chose to go on Viking because of the excellent rating they had and also the nice itinerary of the cruise. The ship itself is very beautiful in decor and layout. The staff were also some of the best have had on a cruise. However the cruise was one of the worst we have experienced. The day before we were to leave for the cruise the CDC downgraded Iceland from level 1 to level 3. The ...

Excursion highlights for Viking trip to Panama Canal

6-10 Cruises • Age 70s

We chose this trip because of the opportunity to experience the Panama Canal. It was the highlight of the trip. This review will concentrate on the excursions - mostly because I found few reviews on Cruise Critic about this itinerary before I took it. The staff and service were excellent. The comments are about my personal reactions to the excursions. In general, the quality was high, but I ...

We had originally booked this as a Cuba cruise (until Trump put and end to that) but decided to stick with the booking after Viking offered some decent incentives. I love cruising having previously sailed with (Oceania x 2, Norwegian x 2, Celebrity x 2, Disney, Holland America, and Princess). We have sailed everything from the 4,000 passenger Norwegian Bliss to the 650 passenger Oceania Nautica, ...

10+ Cruises • Age 70s

Over the past 35 years my wife and I have been on over 25 ocean cruises. We had sailed with 4 other cruise lines, but this is the first Viking Ocean Cruise. We chose Viking as they have a ship with a great deal fewer passengers. Not that my wife and I have anything against being with a large group of people, but we were looking for a less busy, noisy cruise and we thought with less ...

Our goal for this cruise vacation was to have a wellness retreat: to eat healthy food, to read a lot, to walk 10,000 steps daily and to relax in the spa and the Viking Sky fulfilled our wishes! This was the first time we sailed on a Viking Cruise and the reviews on this site helped us immensely with both deciding on the cruise and preparing for the cruise. BOOKING We called Viking direct ...

To experience a smaller ship with less crowds. The explorers lounge quickly became our go to spot. Lots of comfortable seating with beautiful views, provided peace & solitude. We experienced excellent customer service in every department. Many great food options. Easy to get a table in all venues. The LIV Nordic Spa sealed the deal for me! The staff is focused, dedicated & extremely ...
