Viking has raised the bar in cruising. The star is absolutely beautiful with many public spaces . Didn't miss the casino or lavish shows,although the entertainment provided was first class. Stateroom was bigger than expected with plenty of storage. Excellent bathroom. Restaurants were exceptionally good. Selection and service was outstanding. No extra fees for the two other restaurants.. Viking organization from airport arrival to departure 15 days later was painless. Shore excursions were very well organized. The guest was always very well taken care of. Looking forward to my next cruise April,of 2018. These are not bargain cruises but worth every dollar! Viking ocean spoiled me. Crew is very proud to work for VikngNd it shows...thank you Viking star... See you soon.... Our cruise was Viking homelands and wonderful ports of call especially Tallinn, Estonia, a real gem.take the Soviet Flashback tour a real treat and you'll learn a lot about the tiny nation.
