Viking Star has raised the bar on ocean cruises. This was our first Viking Ocean cruise and our nineteenth overall ocean cruise and it not only was the best but it was worth the wait as every detail on board far exceeded our expectations.
We choose Viking travel and therefore the trip from home to the Viking Star was as expected, effortless. Staterooms are comfortable and housekeeping was impeccable.
There are four included dining rooms to choose from, ranging from including self service, one main and two speciality. The menus had a wide variety of entrees and both the quality of the food and the waiters at each were the best of any cruise line.
Entrainment was quite personal as there were great cabaret performances alone with solo musicians in various public areas.
There is at least one shore excursion that is included at each port of call and also other special interest ones at additional cost.
All of the included far exceed any other cruise lines as Viking seems to understand their customers excursion expectations.
