Viking Star Cruise Review by JGRealty

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Sep 2015
  • Destination: the Western Mediterranean
  • Cabin Type: undefined

This was our first cruise. Viking came highly recommended by friends of ours who we cruised with. As our first experience, I can say it was outstanding. The ship was beautiful and very well designed. Our room was lovely and every possible space was well thought out and used. The only suggestion I have with respect to the rooms was that the outlets were a little difficult to get to near the bed and an extension cord would have been helpful. The service and staff were remarkable, helpful and friendly. The food was plentiful and unexpectedly delicious. The travel to and from the embarkation ports went smoothly. The ship was kept extremely clean and the staff was constantly cleaning all common areas.

The Port and shore excursions were uneven. Some were wonderful, some not so great. It all depended on the guide assigned to the excursion. Some were extremely knowledgeable and made the excursion come alive. Others not so good. Also, a few of our stops were a little disappointing, such as Corfu and especially Barcelona. We were really looking forward to seeing Barcelona, but it was a bus tour that didn't make any stops, except one short stop not in a very interesting area, and kept moving at a very fast pace so you really couldn't see or take pictures of the points of interest.
