  3. Viking Star
I had heard good things about Viking. Was excited to sail the Med on the first cruise ships built by Viking. From the beginning: SFO SAS flight provided by the tour was delayed in SFO. The plane was dirty. Also, one of the toilets was not working for the entire flight. We arrived in Copenhagen LATE. MISSED our connecting flight to Bergen. Had to wait (mostly standing in a courtyard) for almost two hours before getting assigned another flight. Got the LAST flight from Copenhagen to Bergen. When we arrived in Bergen we found out about our ships problems....were put up in an airport hotel. Then on morning of 3rd day, we were flown back to Copenhagen...another shore day and night before we finally sailed. We did not get to sail from Bergen to Copenhagen. Our ship had mechanical difficulties costing us TWO DAYS of sailing; one day in Paris in lieu of two; (also had to change ports, making Paris too far for practical purposes the one day possible). SECOND LOST DAY was London UK port; lost totally. Very disappointing. The ship was beautiful & comfortable, the crew, staff and Entertainment personnel all did their best to make the remainder of our trip the best possible.

Not my best cruise.
