Outstanding cabin, service from all crew members could not have been better, and the food was excellent. The Italian restaurant was one of the best I have eaten in and I lived in taly for five years. l am Elite status with Princess, but I will cruise Viking whenever possible. Have done a cost comparison with Princess and the cost is about the same or a little cheaper with Viking. Depending on ...

Wanted the see Rome, Italy and Spain and timing was right. Food on ship became very. Boring by end of second week it was becoming difficult to know what to order or even pick from buffet.shore excursions are not fairly distributed ie: people with more expensive rooms are given priority on excursions thus it appears there money is better than mine. The ship is a very beautiful and luxurious ...

My friends needed one more and invited me. Am so happy they asked, and even happier I said yes. Being my first European trip made this even more special and Viking made sure the trip was nothing less than sensational. Viking stands head and shoulders above the cruise personnel in other shipping companies. Outstanding. Friendly employees (so many other shipping companies have downright sour ...

This was a "trip of a lifetime" for me. I had never been to Europe, had been on a couple of Caribbean cruises, but they in no way compare to Viking. I tell people it was like sailing on a 5 Star Hotel! The ship layout is beautiful, there was alway a quiet place to go. I found the crew and staff very pleasant, never did we walk by an employee when we weren't acknowledged. Our first night ...

My wife and I were very impressed with the complete trip; from bow to fantail the ship was more that expected. The many common area's made it feel very comfortable and peaceful. We never had to wait for a great seat at the various venues. The venues and entertainment were first class. The many venues to chose from and the entertainers were very good and accommodating. The ship and its ...

Beautiful cruise ship Viking Star. About 900 guests with sufficient staff resulted in a relaxing and fun cruise. Shore excursions every day but one allowed us to explore many European cities and historical sites. At least one daily excursion was included. Dinner at speciality restaurants were excellent with great food, wine and beer included, and service. Great selection at buffet for all meals ...

Overall we had a fantastic time on our Viking Star "Mediterranean Odyssey" trip! The ship is absolutely beautiful and the Staff was very friendly and took special care of us. Some of the excursions were too long for us to take in the heat, amount of walking, etc., so we skipped a couple of those and just enjoyed a mellow day onboard ship. Glad we did this because folks who took those tours ...

The ship was wonderful, the food was wonderful, and the staff (housekeepers, waiters.waitresses) were outstanding. After two Viking River Cruises we were afraid we wouldn't enjoy this larger ship as well as the river boats but we were sorely wrong. We never had difficulty finding somewhere wonderful to eat and our room was always kept in pristine condition. We had terrific meals in all of the ...

Overall we loved our cruise the Viking Star. Having experienced 3 Viking river cruises, we knew the quality of the Viking brand and we weren't disappointed once on board the Viking Star. Granted, we could have used a little more drawer space for our clothes, or did we merely overpack (again!)? No matter, we made do just fine. The bathroom had plenty of space for both his and her storage needs, ...

Overall the cruise was good but you could tell that not all the kinks were worked out of the systems. In the area of dining, one restaurant only had one special menu and if that was not to your taste, your option was a steak. In the other restaurants, food was good but could use some "simpler" fare such as simple common soups or similar rather than high end meals. Most of the shore ...
