Viking Star Cruise Review by mathmomma

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

We chose this cruise to revisit Venice and then tour the Dalmatian coast, Greece and Turkey. The only disappointment was a bombing in Istanbul which prohibited us visiting there but Viking did its best to fill in with another wonderful port of call and did their level best to secure our new travel plans home and assure our safety. All ports of call were fabulous as was the ship.

The cabins especially the bathrooms were a wonderful surprise with spaciousness. The food was varied and wonderful. The choice of dining experiences from informal buffet to cuisine with wine pairing options covered a wide variety of dining experiences. Tea time every day was an added bonus. The daily entertainment was superb and the briefings each evening on next day's port of call was so very helpful and enlightening. The staff was friendly, helpful and very knowledgeable. I would highly recommend the itinerary and Viking cruise line.
