Viking ticks all boxes again! Empires of the Mediterranean   0 , VIC, Australia, Apr 2024
Our second Viking ocean cruise did not disappoint - the ships are so elegant and comfortable. The service is fantastic and it a great way to experience multiple destinations. The included tours and port information provided is excellent, a great experience all round. As always, Hannah’s professional and friendly service with the booking procedure ...read more was appreciated.
Wonderful cruise with Viking   1 , Queensland , Australia, Aug 2023
Our first Viking ocean cruise and we were not disappointed! Everything was amazing, from the staff, to the ship facilities, to the included tours. Being a smaller ship with only 930 was so much nicer than sailing on the huge liners with thousands of passengers. No kids is also a bonus! For us it was well worth the money we paid. We left the ship with ...read more not a bill to pay as everything was included. Of course there are optional tours and drinks outside of lunch and dinner that cost extra, but we didn’t opt for those. We booked the lowest category cabin which certainly met our needs. All cabins include verandahs and our cabin was a decent size. We don’t tend to spend much time in our cabin anyway as we often travel in a group.

The great thing is that there are self serve laundry facilities which meant we could leave the ship with clean clothes for the next part of our 10 week journey through Europe. The service onboard was wonderful and the staff couldn’t do enough for us and always with a smile. In fact, the day of disembarkation, our transfer wasn’t until 1pm so we were invited to stay onboard in the public areas and even given lunch whilst the next group of passengers were embarking. The only negative, although no one’s fault, was the weather. It was so hot!! Europe was having a heatwave this year. So in future we would probably not leave home as early as we did (end of August). Maybe 3 weeks later would have been ideal. Many thanks to Georgie for organising our cruises (we also did Viking’s France’s Finest river cruise). She was always available for any queries we had and always prompt with the replies. 😃
Cruising the Dalmation Coast   0 , NSW, Australia, Jun 2023
Well organised cruise. Loved the talks and entertainment was excellent on board. Port guides and tours were excellent and boarding and disembarking procedures were also well organised. The only down side experienced was the ship was a little too cold outside our cabin and we needed to wear a jacket when we exited.
Great Med Cruise     2 , QLD, Australia, Nov 2022
A great cruise on a fantastic ship. We booked excursions and went off the ship every day - we probably should have taken a day or two to relax, but there was so much to do. Make sure you bring comfortable sneakers, as you will do a lot of walking. I was in the spa and sauna every day, as it was a great way to wake up and recharge after being out in ...read more the European autumn (~5-10°C). Overall, I had an incredible time on the cruise and highly recommend it to anyone. I can't wait to go on another Viking cruise. Make sure you order the strip steak from the World Cafe - it's the ship's best-kept secret.
Cruising the Caribbean in Comfort and Style   43 , QLD, Australia, Mar 2018
As a first experience of ocean cruising, Viking has probably spoilt us for a number of other lines. While not a small ship (~900 passengers), we did not encounter the congestion that we imagine happens in much larger ships. The stateroom was lovely, the bathroom larger than expected and very functional, with plenty of storage for everything.

Dining ...read more options were varied and all very good. Most notably, the tasting menus at The Chef’s Table, which we booked three times, were absolutely exquisite. All the included extras (shore excursions, drinks and wifi) as well as the “no casino, no kids” policy made a positive difference.

The “Viking Sea” is only 2 years old and is decorated in sleek and simple Scandinavian style, featuring beautiful Scandinavian artworks. The ship is spotlessly clean, and one of the highlights was the exceptional quality of all the onboard staff, who were friendly, helpful, engaging, and always happy to have a chat. Viking must have an impressive staff training program.

Our itinerary for the 11 day cruise was a busy one and the included shore excursions were all excellent and very well organised. We visited 9 different islands, with different history, scenery and cultures, shown to us by excellent local guides, and all were both beautiful and fascinating.

The days when we did additional optional excursions were very busy, but we especially loved the French Cooking Class with a local chef in Saint Martin. We were sad to see the lingering devastation of cyclones going back a number of years on all the islands. I would recommend this cruise to others and I am sure that we will travel with Viking again in future.
