--This Trip was taken as a result of a voucher issued by Viking to compensate in part for problems incurred on a River Cruise. At the suggestion of our Travel Agent and due to time constraints in using the Voucher, we chose this trip on the Viking Star. I rarely find the Embarkation and Debarkation smooth. This went fairly well.
--The Ship was small next to many we have sailed but was well laid out and was relatively quiet next to most cruises. The ship was a bit more reflective of sea conditions as well.
--Specialty Restaurants were Excellent and both regular restaurants were excellent, as was the Service. Food was outstanding.
Cabin was a bit small but otherwise a very good cabin. Cabin service was outstanding. My wife has mobility issues and the cabin did not cause any problems. Balcony was small but a pleasure to have. Shower was great, bed was great, storage was very adequate.
