This ship is very nice - incredibly clean, very nice people, and good overall comfort. However, there are some things that need to be fixed before I would consider spending this kind of money to go on a "luxury" cruise again. ... Read more

We have taken 23 ocean cruises (most in the Caribbean), and Viking Star tops the list. The ship is beautiful, with many spots to sit and read or enjoy a conversation. Our cabin was laid out beautifully (we were in DV6 category) as was ... Read more

We saw an offer at the end of March for Canadian residents priced in Canadian dollars. It was a good offer and we loved the ship the first time we sailed on it. Also it was cruising in the Baltic - one of our target distinations. In ... Read more

We chose this tour, in part, because of the itinerary, and partly because friends were booked on it. We sailed from Stockholm on July 16(boarding was on Saturday the 15th) so we had Saturday to tour Stockholm. We napped instead . ... Read more

The high level of service, decor, Nordic spa and cuisine make the Viking Star feel like the Four Seasons Hotel on the sea. City tours with local guides in every port, no unnecessary announcements broadcast on the ship, luxuriously ... Read more

We wanted to see the Scandinavian countries, the rest were a bonus. We made our own travel arrangements and stayed in Bergen 4 nights before we strarted the cruise, to recover from jet lag. We had three great weather days ending when we ... Read more

This was my third Viking Ocean Cruise and 10th cruise with Viking overall. I had been on the Star both previous cruises and obviously enjoyed myself enough to re-book twice. I've now spent six weeks of my life on the Viking Star. The ship ... Read more

I liked the itinerary as I had never been to the ports we docked at. The larger cities and smaller ones, especially in Norway, were great. The ship was spotless and every need was satisfied. The included excursions were well received. The ... Read more

We chose this cruise because of the itinerary and also as we had enjoyed a previous Viking river cruise. Unfortunately this cruise did not live up to expectations. To start with the captain had hit the flood gates coming through the River ... Read more

Second time on Viking Oceans. Think they do a great job. This cruise was no exception, and I was really surprised at the great scenery on this particular itinerary (Into the Midnight Sun). At times it felt like a river cruise rather ... Read more

Had a phenomenal cruise in 2016 - Viking Homelands. Try to match that experience. All went went this year, but the destinations just can't compare. A few too many sea days on this cruise, three were planned which is borderline too many ... Read more

First we went to Iceland for the precruise holiday and Viking did an outstanding job. Arrived in Bergen, Norway, and we were bussed to the port. Very easy embarkation, and our room was ready when we arrived. Bags arrived shortly thereafter ... Read more

The itinerary for this trip is excellent in most respects. I had been to the area years ago when I was in the Navy and we had a strong desire to get back. Viking did a wonderful job in the design of the ship; all the on-board ... Read more

We started in Stockholm, Sweden. We chose to explore Stockholm on our own for two days prior to sailing. For us it was better value for our dollars. We are adventurous so felt OK with the challenge of exploring on our own. Check in was ... Read more

Viking Star is absolutely lovely, all blond wood and Scandinavian decor. The public rooms are varied and many. Be it the Winter Gardens or any of the bars, the service was good and friendly. Our stateroom was well appointed but quite ... Read more
