This is the best cruise we have been on. We were met by staff when we boarded with flutes of champagne. The ship is absolutely beautiful, tastefully decorated. Our cabin was very nice and there was plenty of storage space. Your room steward will show you how everything works, from the coffee machine to the heated bathroom floor. Staff is always ready and willing to help or answer questions. At each port we had a wonderful tour; everything ran like clockwork too. Restaurants are fantastic. We dined at the specialty venues several times; each time was totally amazing too. We did eat at the buffet several nights and found the food that should be a cruise industry standard. We both agreed that the buffet on the Viking Star was top notch with superior staff.

There is always something interesting to enjoy; be it a special lecture in the theater or a food demo. We went down every night to enjoy the on board musical artists. Your cares will just slip away listening to a trio,a guitar or a piano. There are so many, many things I am probably forgetting some. Don't miss the Norwegian "deli" up on the top deck. You can enjoy Jatost cheese, a sandwich or a decadent pastry. On this same floor you can enjoy a glass of wine or cocktail while watching the world sail by. The ports are so amazing; each was memorable. My personal favorite was Flam Norway. Sailing in the fiord to the port was breath taking. I was able to visit Gdank Poland where my Father's parents were born also Stavangar Norway where my Mother's people are from. This was The Trip of A Life Time!
