The Fabulous Viking Star

Viking Star Cruise Review by bmajcher

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Mar 2016
  • Destination: the Eastern Mediterranean

We chose this cruise because of the many destinations we had wanted to see, and this one checked off a lot of them. We were lucky enough to go into Istanbul 4 days early, probably one of the last cruises going in there. We booked our pre-trip seperately from the cruise line. It was wonderful, and we hope that Istanbul and the rest of Turkey get back to some terrific tourism! A gorgeous and historically important city.

The Viking Star surpassed our expectations! I don't do open water well, but we had fantastic weather while we were onboard! We got to see Troy, Epehsus, and the fabulous Santorini. We met up with our new sister ship the Viking Sea, and the whole day, start to finish, was spectacular. We sailed into the caldera side by side, on a breath-taking morning, to a whole lot of celebration with Viking! We did stop in Athens as well, but, Athens is still in a state of turmoil, and the city was a graffitti mess.

We journyied up to Montenegro, and Croatia, and departed in Venice, which we did not stop at, because we had been there previously.

The Viking Star was a wonderful ship, with so many different places to dine and drink and entertainment, that you never even realized there were 900 people onboard. The entertainment was good, and and the series of talks were outstanding. The specialty restaurants were fantastic! The crew was fun and friendly, and more than helpful. The spa was a dream, who else has a "snow room" onboard?? Our cabin was roomy and comfortable, and even had a free stocked mini fridge, which was replenished daily.

Don't miss out trying this fabulous "Small ship"!!

Cabin Review

Cabin penthouse veranda 6082

Room was roomy, with lots of clever storage. Bathroom was very good, sofa and side chair in the living area, veranda with table and 2 chairs, and large windows to enjoy the view as we sailed. TV, which we didn't watch much, had channels we weren't crazy about, including Fox, MSNBC, and some foreign language channels. No credible American channels. Limited movies and lots of "talks". Really nice to have washer and dryer at our
