We sailed from Venice to Split, Dubrovnik, Corfu, Naples, Rome, Livorno, Monaco/Monte Carlo, Toulon and ended up in Barcelona. It was truly the trip of a lifetime for me, never having taken any cruise before! We loved the idea of starting in Venice and ending the voyage in Barcelona. We took an extra day and a half at each end of the trip to see a bit more of each of those cities. Great idea. Gave us a chance to rev up for the cruise on the front end and wind down from the cruise at the back end. While on the cruise itself, we truly can't speak highly enough of the ship's appointments, the entire staff from the wonderful captain to our stateroom steward, the various entertainment choices and lecture offerings, the dining choices (all excellent, by the way) and the shore excursions. Manfreddi's Restaurant, the Chef's Table restaurant and "The Restaurant" were all wonderful as was the more casual restaurant where breakfast, lunch and dinner were always available. The bar up on the 7th deck as well as the bar down on the first deck were delightful places to have a drink and review the fun activities of that particular day! We will definitely consider another cruise in the future, perhaps taking a river cruise the next time for a change of pace! If you have the chance and time to make an ocean cruise trip, Viking Cruise Line is a SUPERB company to book your cruise through!

Ah, Viking! What a beautiful Ship the Viking Star is!

Cabin Review

Cabin 4023
Our stateroom was excellent. We were located on deck #4, on the starboard side of the ship. Great location. The seating and sleeping appointments and storage were more than adequate for 2 senior single ladies traveling together. We asked for and received separate beds. The bathroom facilities were truly well designed. Appreciated the instant hot water, by the way, as well as the efficient, low flush toilets. Lighting was very good in both the stateroom as well as the bathroom. The TV offerings were delightful, too, as was the fact that we had in room wifi (though it was a little hit and miss) and we also had an under counter fridge. Our steward, Ferry, was the height of promptness, if we needed anything and he was always there with a smile! Just delightful! We think that our cabin was superb, plain and simple.
