  3. Viking Star
My wife's family is from the West Indies and we wanted to see some of the islands on which her ancestors lived. This cruise was over the top wonderful in every respect. The shore excursions gave us a real sense on what things would have been like living on some of the islands. Since we have been on Viking cruises before, we expected the food to be wonderful, and it was. Most of the passengers were retired couples which was perfect for us. We made friends with lots of people. We were afraid that the public areas would be crowded and that boarding and leaving the ship would be congested, but everything was perfect. The ship was fully booked, but we never felt crowded. We frequently asked ourselves: where is everyone? Excellent planning by the crew all of whom were amazingly friendly. Here is the final proof of what we thought of the cruise: within a week of getting home we signed up to go again next year--very same cruise, very same cabin.

Better than we could have imagined!

Super arrangement. We have requested the same cabin for our next Viking ocean cruise.
