We spent 3 days in Venice before getting on the Viking Star. We were very excited because we've done a lot of cruising but never on this line or this size ship. We arranged our own flights and hotel stays.

We were beyond pleased. The ship, being new, was so pristine, and although I wouldn't describe it as elegant or showy, it was extremely comfortable and the décor was appealing for its simplicity and for encouraging passengers just to linger and visit.

Getting on and off the ship, whether at the start of end of the cruise or for a shore excursion, was efficient and fast. We also loved that they trusted us - information was given out each evening and/or printed on the tickets, so we knew where to go when without being annoyed by an endless series of announcements over the PA.
