Great cruise. From excitement in Barcelona (civil unrest) to surprising Croatia, and best of all, only 2 days of rain! Also a shout out to friendly Corfu, Greece!

Menu’s geared toward the tastes of each port coming up; especially tasty.

Onboard Activities

Enjoyed the planetarium and the many presentations with details of the next port stop.


4 out of 5
Maybe a little heavy on the opera singers, but otherwise we saw some fabulous shows; talent.

Children's Programs

Adults only on Viking. And no casino!

Service and Staff

Very attentive and friendly.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Just the right size at just over 900 passengers. The Jupiter is currently Viking’s newest ship.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Enough room not to feel cramped. Comfy bed, great shower in a bathroom with a heated floor.

Ports of call

Barcelona, Spain

5 out of 5
Even with the civil unrest, what’s not to like!? Gaudi!

Marseille (Provence), France

5 out of 5
Nice European town...

Monte Carlo, Monaco Did not visit port

Stormy weather and high winds closed the port.

Livorno (Florence & Pisa), Italy

5 out of 5
With Monte Carlo taken out, we enjoyed 2 days in Livorno, allowing us a day each in Florence & Pisa.

Civitavecchia (Rome), Italy

4 out of 5
Enjoyed this port’s “included” tour. Important to verify all port’s distance from the designated city, as the bus ride can eat up to 2 hours each way.

Naples, Italy

4 out of 5
Excellent for me, a history buff, as I took a Naples tour above & below ground.

Corfu, Greece

5 out of 5
Didn’t realize it was a holiday in Corfu. Bands marching through out our visit. Very friendly people!

Dubrovnik, Croatia

5 out of 5
A nice surprise! A wonderful city!

Split, Croatia

5 out of 5
Went to the fabulous Krka National Park. (Only negative was it rained.)

Venice, Italy

5 out of 5
My first time in Venice. We took an evening Gondola ride.

Smooth, other than needing to leave at 4:30 AM to catch an early morning flight.
