Viking Ocean maintains the high standards set by Viking River Cruises
"My husband and I have been on 3 Viking River cruises in the past, so we were anxious to see how Viking managed to translate their methods to a larger ship. The results were impressive. While we did not have the..."Read More

Friends of ours are long time Viking patrons and they asked if we wanted to accompany them on this one. I really did not think my husband would try cruising again as our 2 Caribbean experiences were not to our liking. Viking made us believers again and now we are going to Australia and New Zealand with them! We loved being able to go to talks about the next port and when Viking had to cancel ...

We chose this cruise as we wanted to see the Holy Land and to visit places that have been around for thousands of years that we could only marvel at in books. We can now finally say we were there, we saw that, and we felt moved at being there. The trip was fabulous. This is our third Viking Cruise and the fact that there is a trip in every port makes these cruises such value for money. Its also ...

We had a fantastic time over Christmas week on this cruise of the Mediterranean. We had taken a Viking River Cruise and has such a wonderful experience, I trusted the Ocean cruise would be equally great. It was - in fact, even better! The ship had so much to offer, I actually looked forward to the "at-sea" days to fully experience it all. The dining options and quality of the food surpassed my ...

For my 75th birthday, I took three generations of my family to enjoy a cruise over Christmas and New Years of 2020. I could not imagine that the actual experience would be as wonderful and beautiful as the PBS Ads! It was! Every step of the journey was so easy and so well organized that I simply floated through a blissful two weeks of paradise. Each crew member from the Captain to the bathroom ...

My sister and I took this cruise because we both had wanted to go to Athens, and we had never done that. We are both over 80 years old and have mobility problems. On the boat, everything was fine. Shore excursions less so. We did not realize that there were enrichment and entertainment options, Our fault, we did not look at the daily briefings. We both wanted to go to Knossos, but the boat ...

We chose this cruise because we had been on one that ended in Athens almost 2 years ago and my husband got sick (we were quarantined to the stateroom on our last day and missed the excursion in Athens). There was a special deal on the first 8 days of the 14 night Mediterranean Antiquities cruise, beginning in Athens and ending with disembarkation in Rome. Christmas Eve and Christmas Day were at ...

The Adriatic & Greece is perfect cruising grounds with scenic sailing, interesting ports with lots of history and interesting people wherever we stopped. Viking Ocean Cruises has found the perfect formula for cruising: - mid size ships - free WiFi & laundry - free wine with lunch & dinner - free shore excursion in every port with plenty of other excursions to choose from for a ...

The localized and exploring these anciant sites brought a lot of history into docs and added materially to out understanding. Guides were very knowledgeable and informative. Particularly in Israel we were treated to a perspective from the guides which cannily come from natives. The cruise was without incident and delivered with the class we expect from Viking. Food and beverages were ...

We have sailed Viking Ocean on 3 previous cruises. We love their ships - the size, the understated décor, no casino or sales of jewelry and other junk. This itinerary really appealed to us as we love history and the cruise covered Greek Antiquities, Crusaders Castles, Biblical locations and Pompeii. The most disappointing aspect of the cruise was the cuisine. This was our 4th Viking Ocean ...

Our trip with Viking, our first with them, was everything it was meant to be! Travel arrangements were clockwork precision, with little effort needed on our part. We experienced none of the confusion that often accompanies trips that we arrange for ourselves. I must say though, we did not allow for jet lag, and our first few days aboard were primarily recovering, limiting our enjoyment of ...
