Wanted to try out viking oceans having done a river cruise. Our cruise which has just finished was the caribean experiance. The Star is new ship and is excellent well laid out, good signage excellent atrium. Cabin size adequate small but nice balcony Main dinning room nice, food nice but service slow had to chase wine waiter on a number of occassions. Special resturants food avarage except asian night which was excellent The premier drinks package was well worth paying for which you cannot say the same for Holland and American Entertainment avarage Staff attentative and helpful Shore excursion could be better paid ones were worth the money. The two day extension in Purto Rica at the Hotel Hilton Carib was not so good, day 1 spent most time awaiting for room to be cleaned and made ready so lost the day. Day 2 using the Red city bus tour was excecellent. Would I go again with them very much so but not where I would be having to transfer in America. Transferes at Miami and at JFK were a nightmare American security and Imigration were rude, agressive even though you were doing exactly as they wanted. I can only assume the Americans do not want tourists,
