Viking Star

March 2018 - 9 Night Empires Of The Mediterranean (Athens To Venice) Cruise on Viking Star

Good cruise

Viking offers a lot for the price if you don’t book the most expensive cabins. Having at least one included tour per port is good, plus internet which is slow but at least is something, wine in every meal, and great service. The ship is new and don’t have major issues. We enjoyed our cruise.

Vision of the Seas

January 2018 - 5 Night Western Caribbean (Galveston Roundtrip) Cruise on Vision of the Seas

Nice cruice but not great

As a first time cruiser I will say it is ok, but I don't like to spend too much time on the ship, and more exploring the ports. I booked this cruise to take my mom on her first cruise, she loved the experience, but I will not book another cruise in this particular ship.

betty14's Tips

Santorini, Greece - The free time left in this place was very short. Specially in Oia. This is the main city and we had less than an hour to explore and experience the city
Zadar, Croatia - The town is very nice but the main attractions is the KRKA National Park and when we tried to book it it was full so we booked a private tour that it ended up being better than Vikings
Dubrovnik, Croatia - Too short of the stay. We did our one climbing of the wall and city tour. Would like to spend more time.
Venice, Italy - Viking doesn’t offer any tour here we just disembarked. The town has a lot to offer so we did it in one day.
Kotor, Montenegro - This port allows for 2 tours so we did the included and the highlights of Montenegro. Both were very good. Plus hiking to the wall was very nice. Plenty of time to enjoy the place
Corfu, Greece - We did one of the optional tour to Achilion and it was very good
Piraeus (Athens), Greece - We did the included city tour. They mentioned a lot about visiting the government palace and the change of the guards that we thought they were going to at least stop to see it, but we were wrong we drove very fast in front of it. If you mention something as being important at least stop so people can appreciate it. Otherwise don’t mention it.
Koper, Slovenia - This is stop was kind of a waste of time. I guess they needed a stop before Venice. There is nothing there to see.
Cozumel, Mexico - Cozumel has a lot to do in itself, but I recommend taking a tour or at least a taxi to go and visit the town, outside the shopping area next to the port.
Progreso (Merida), Mexico - Progreso is not a place to visit, you must take a tour and go to Merida at least. We visited some ruins and did the city tour which was decent.
Vision of the Seas Vision of the Seas - this is a large ship compared with Vikings Ocean ships, but this ship rocked and shake a lot, even when the sea wasn't to bad. You can feel the shaking of the engine all the way to the 6th deck, and the humming it on the 3rd deck cabins. the ship is old and I think it needs some engine fixing and some modern technology to prevent from rocking so much.
