This cruise covered a large section of the Mediterranean Sea so I felt it would give us a broad view of history and architecture, my interests. We arrived in Barcelona on time and boarding was very smooth, our ship was docked very near the Ramblas and that made it easy to get to this fabulous city. In fact all our ports and cities in the itinerary are treasures that only get better the more you learn about them. The Viking Star is very comfortable, easy to get around once we got our sea legs, all food was great, loved the fresh fruit for breakfast, the local flavors throughout the day and evening. Our cabin fit into our lives just right, it feels like home in no time at all. Enjoyed time onboard on the sun deck, the spa, had to do the snow grotto and it was so good. The crew is the best, everyone is helpful and friendly, its like they know what I want before I even ask. The shore excursions were done just right, I liked the early start to get ahead of the crowds, and the local guides are what is needed to really get the local flavor of the place. The drivers and coaches are first rate. Our extension, Tuscany! was just the right touch to complete our lovely time in Italy and the meals offered were superb. I can do this kind of trip many times over, will love to spend more time in the cities. Read Less

This was our first cruise and my personal first visit to Europe. We chose this cruise because it gave us just a "taste" of so many different countries traveling the coastlines of Spain, France, Italy, Islands of Greece, Croatia and back to Italy. We also wanted to be among others (adults only!) that wanted a relaxing, enriching cruise exploring culture and history all while enjoying delicious cuisine! We decided to arrive two days ahead of embarkation to allow for any travel issues as well as to acclimate ourselves to the time change. Once ready to embark, we found the staff/service to be extremely accommodating and welcoming. Throughout our cruise embarkation/disembarkation was a breeze. Because of the size of our boat, we were able to dock in the port with a direct gangway. Our cabin was beautifully appointed, comfortable, clean and larger than expected! Love the luxurious feel of all amenities. Dining choices were abundant with more than ample food options everywhere. We never felt like we were eating "mass produced" food. Optional dining (Manfredi's and Chef's Table) were excellent and provided a more intimate atmosphere. We were very happy that we took advantage of making the reservations for those restaurants in advance as they filled up quickly. The crew/entertainment kept us happily entertained throughout the week. It was fun to see our cruise director (Jenna) providing her own cabaret show. All entertainers were fun and clearly showed that they loved their jobs! Lots of activities are available at all times - hard to decide what to do next (or not to do if relaxation was the goal!) We particularly loved all of the relaxation areas, seating alcoves, library, lounges....the layout of the Viking Star was perfect and we never felt like anyplace was crowded! The Spa was beautiful and the staff was excellent. My husband and I both took advantage of the pools, saunas, as well as personal services such as hydrofacials for me and a massage for my husband. We both felt completely pampered and the value was excellent for the service provided. Overall the service on board was amazing and we found all staff members/crew to be approachable, kind and willing to provide the best service to make our cruise the best it could be. We cannot say enough about the level of service and we were thoroughly impressed as to the team approach for this crew/staff. There was no job from top to bottom that seemed to be "below" anyone! It was truly an all hands on deck approach. Outstanding!! The ports/shore excursions were plentiful and led by well qualified partners sharing their knowledge. All excursions were well organized. We selected a lot of the optional tours and enjoyed the smaller groups that participated here. The general "included" tours were a little harder to manage as there was a variety of physical levels/abilities that seemed more difficult to manage in these groups and was more difficult to keep everyone content with pace, etc. We probably overbooked ourselves as we constantly said we wished we had more time on our own to explore! Overall this experience was excellent and we have done nothing but rave about Viking and are already hoping to plan another cruise in the coming year or so. We have referred many friends as well! We look forward to experiencing a River cruise with a smaller number on board with Viking. Read Less

We chose this cruise primarily for one reason, no young kids, no casinos, no water slides, no discos. Viking is about 1st class cruising without the carnival atmosphere so many of the big ships are into these days. The ship was perfect. Every crew member speaks to you no matter their job or class. The food was excellent and just a wonderful experience in whole. With the smaller ocean ships of Viking you can get into ports that many of the mega ships cannot. We woke up one morning and looked out our window to see Monte Carlo. WOW what a view that left us breathless. Viking has for sure found their niche catering to older adults. We could be walking out on the deck and run upon a crew member doing maintenance. They would always speak to us and that says something about Viking and its training of crew. If you like a circus then maybe another cruise line is best for you. If you like perfection on a ship that is spotless without all the circus atmosphere then Viking is definitely for you as it was for us. Read Less
