Unbelievably awesome trip! by biandrews

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple

We loved everything about this trip. The guides - Tarek and Walid were wonderful as were the ports. For those worried about security, we had an armed guard with us whenever we left the ship.

One of the Best Vacations in 20 Years by SherryLucy

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple

Highly recommended to do the Jeruselem pre-tour. This allowed your to meet and bond with many guests, and we remined as a group during the cruise. Overall, the 43 days in Cairo and the cruse was spectacular. We never felt unsafe (we did have armed escorts and police cruisers with us). This was a highly educational, spiritual and enlightening trip. I highly recomend putting this on your bucket list. Viking does a fabulous job.

The Cruise from Hell by SafariHunter

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple

We missed four planned excursions due to the weather and poor planning. That equaled one-forth of our cruise trip. Missed the elephant park which we really were looking forward to, as well as Maputo, Mt. Nelson Tea and Botklierskop Private Game Reserve. Seas and weather were terrible, activities on board ship mainly mindless, and to compensate, they gave us drinks for 2 hours when seas were rough and people too sick to eat or drink. Waves 30+ feet. Oceania gave us bogus onboard credit at 7 am the morning we disembarked. Couldn't use it. They WEREN'T responsive in a way that I expected from their advertising and what I had heard. Food was good, but not phenomenal. Very old crowd. Except for one young woman, we were probably the youngest on the ship. Had to take malaria medication for a port we couldn't enter. The worst cruise we ever took!

Amazing experience by Tinkerchick21

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (older children)

This was my first cruise ever and I honestly had no idea what to expect! Well I can say that the entire experience was fantastic, from the quickness of boarding to the food to the staff! Absolutely everything was superb. I had the nicest housekeeping man looking after our cabin, which I shared with my gran. He was friendly and informative and I am so glad to have had someone as nice as him around! I got lost multiple times on board and found a map of the entire ship as I was leaving but honestly it was actually kind of fun getting lost because I got to discover different areas of the ship that I might not have gone to ordinarily. The food was something else, if I had the stomach space I would have gone back for second and third helpings! I highly recommend trying everything because you can and because it's too good to not try! I only got to see one show and on my last night but wow, what a show it was!!! The dancing and aerobatic performances were incredible! They had us laughing, amazed and in the end we were absolutely in awe! I would highly recommend seeing a show every night! During the excursion we took a little boat off to the second island for seafood and this did not disappoint! We stuffed our faces with prawns and other seafood and then washed it down with R n' R's before heading back to the first island to float in the beautifully flat swimming pool like ocean and shopping and then back on the boat. I am sad to be home but so glad to have experienced as much as I could in the 3 days I was aboard! I would highly recommend this trip to anyone!

SA Market. by PeterAmos

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple

So we’ve done this trip before on another ship and we were looking forward to this. What a change. So, it seems that MSC have learnt from the other SA cruises and we found far less variety in the food choices. Lots of bacon, eggs, pizza etc but less choices in general. Not up to the standard of the first cruise and way less that the Mediterranean cruise ships. Maybe we were being critical but there was a noticeable adjustment to catering for the SA market.
