Beautiful ship, friendly staff, excellent food. Never seemed crowded with only about 900 guests. Everything went smoothly. Stateroom was top notch. Don't think I'd ever go on a large cruise ship again after going on the Viking Star. It was a luxurious experience. Even the public restrooms were first class.
There are plenty of common areas, beautifully decorated in Scandinavian style. Classical trio played most nights. Oldies rock band played at night poolside with dance floor. Talks by subject matter experts about the region were excellent.
This cruise/ship is not great for children. In fact, there were no children on this cruise. If you want a cruise with children, I'd look elsewhere.
