Viking Star

Read about it in the brochure and online. Empire cruise was actually 4 legs combined sequentially from Istanbul to Stockholm. What a trip! I can only say WOW! Service and food was exceptional. Staff was most attentive, friendly, and was hard to say goodbye after getting to know them over the 50 days. Staterooms were great with balconies and nice modern bathrooms.

However, nothing is ever perfect. There were a few irritants.

1. The deck three washing machine was out of order for the whole cruise.

2. Some of the excursions left a little to be desired. A partial refund was given for unsatisfaction.

3. The only U.S. news channel was Fox. Which was totally crap for world news and only politically orientated. Needs CNN.....please!

4. Internet was totally disappointing and a universal complaint with everyone. Couldn't upload anything like photos to show back home. You could barely access your email.......sometimes! The onboard computers, for guest use, were in a high traffic area, which made it very annoying and hard to use. They should be in a separate area, free from walk through busy traffic.

The onboard facilities were first class. The restaurants, lounges, atrium, spa, outdoor deck, and pool areas were exceptional. Really enjoyed the afternoon teas in the Winter Garden.

Everything considered, we were very satisfied, and would recommend Viking Ocean cruising. In fact we have already booked a Caribbean cruise next year on the Viking Sea.
