The stops were made on Viking Sea’s Secrets of the Southern Mediterranean cruise, an eight day journey that started in Civitavecchia, Italy (Rome) and ended in Barcelona, Spain.  Tunis, the first stop, is a dazzling mix of North African tradition and French colonialism.

To commemorate Viking’s inaugural call to Tunis, the Tunisian Symphony Orchestra played a mini concert at the cruise port for all guests on Viking Sea.

Viking Ocean Cruises has raised the bar when it comes to ocean cruising. Currently with two cruise ships in service and another two under construction that will go into service in 2017, Viking offers a nearly all-inclusive cruise experience on a comfortable, modern cruise ship.

Viking’s motto is that they are not going to charge to take you to a destination, and then charge you again to see it.  They offer one complimentary shore excursion in every port of call.  In addition to the complimentary shore excursions, the following is included in all cruise fares:

  • All specialty restaurants
  • Full room service menu available 24/7
  • Most drinks during meals
  • Unlimited Wi-Fi
  • Thermal Suite that includes a snow grotto
  • Mini-bar
  • Specialty coffees
