  3. Viking Star
We previously did two river cruises with Viking. This was our first ocean cruise with them and we will definitely do another. We're waiting for them to go to New Zealand and Australia! The Viking Star is a beautiful ship. We stayed in a Penthouse Suite and absolutely loved our room. The heated floors in the bathroom (so nice since we sailed in March), very comfortable king size bed, plenty of storage space, nice sitting area, mini bar, spacious balcony. Every crew member was always ready to help with a smile on their face. The spa was fun - we were able to use it even though we didn't purchase a separate service which was really nice as most cruise lines won't let you use the facilities unless you buy a service. We used the wet sauna and snow grotto twice, envigorating! All the food served on the ship was delicious. The food and wine pairings at Chef's Table were a lot of fun - especially for foodies. We also really enjoyed Manfredi's - great atmosphere. We are early to rise/early to bed so we didn't take part in any of the evening entertainment but it did all sound good. We did a few of the provided excursions, but the majority of what we did was paid excursions because we wanted to see more than what was in the local area. All of the tours were very interesting and the local guides were excellent. We highly recommend Viking Ocean Cruises.

Loved the heated floors and towel rack in the bathroom!
