  3. Viking Star
Traveled multiple times with Viking on the river cruises. Always wonderful trips. When I received an email on the Ocean cruises it wasn't concerned about booking a trip. My instinct was correct. The ship, the food, all the personnel and the destinations were excellent. The cabin was spacious and well designed. The room was comfortable with enough storage space to stow your belongings. The bathroom was also roomy with the sink area set up for both travelers. The stewards were pretty much invisible but the room was always perfect. All the meals were AMAZING. The specialty dining excellent. There was always somewhere to get a great meal which was helpful when the excursions were at different times each day. The evening shows were great. Also tucked away in the beautiful lounges were fantastic musicians where you sit and have a drink, relax and enjoy. There was always something to do on or off the ship. So much that there were too many choices and I felt there wasn't enough time to enjoy the ship. Some of the excursions that were offered were much more strenuous that advertised with no time to stop to take pictures. But overall they were great. Every port had wonderful guides and drivers. Embarkation and disembarkation worked seamlessly. Travel to and from Europe was good but the stopover at Heathrow is always such a chore. Try to avoid that if you can when you book your travel.

Viking Star is aptly named; definitely a STAR.
