We had previously taken the Viking river cruise up the Romantic Danube and enjoyed it very much. We were impressed with how well Viking took care of everything on that cruise that we decided to try the new Viking Star Mediterranean Odyssey for twelve days visiting ten ports we had not been to before. The cruise turned out to be fantastic in every way. The cabin was spacious and clean. The free wi-fi access and access to TV news programs kept us in touch. The ships appointments throughout were first class and comfortable. The cruise never seemed crowded even though the ship was full. The way things are spread out made plenty of room for everyone. The dining was excellent. No matter which of the many dining areas we ate at, we were always impressed with the variety and quality of the food. The added complimentary wine or beer with lunch and dinner was great and they served some good wines. The staff was always friendly and helpful. Our cabin was made up twice a day and fresh towels when we wanted them. The variety of areas throughout the ship made it comfortable no matter what we were looking for. The Port talks before each port were very informative. The quality of the guest speakers almost everyday were very good. The captain said the ship was not an 'amusement park' and we appreciated that. We met people our own age from all over the world and enjoyed that as one of the high points. We appreciated the included shore excursions and quality guides that made the most of the short time we had in each port. The added live entertainment in the evening was fantastic. Also, live guitarist, and live classical music in the Atrium was very relaxing.
