Viking Star Cruise Review by ronwooten

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Mar 2017
  • Destination: the Western Mediterranean

Had heard many good things about Viking and they did not disappoint. The staff was outstanding, the food was excellent and the cabin was roomy and immaculately clean. The itinerary of the Mediterranean cruise was a match to places we wanted to visit. A couple of the shore excursions were a little weak and the concierge staff on board did not always seem to be well informed about alternative options. However, everything else about the cruise was first class.Dining options were excellent and all were very good. A variety of entertainment options were available each night and some were very good. The design of the ship made you feel like you had plenty of space and were never crowded. We loved have a balcony with our room and spent many enjoyable hours watching the scenery while we enjoyed beverages. The Explorer Lounge was another favorite spot. Would highly recommend Viking to anyone considering a cruise.

Good information about the city.

A poor tour stop. The included tour was boring and there was not much to see. We took a walking tour on our own which we enjoyed but without it I would say this port was a failure.

Rome on Your Own

The transportation was arranged by Viking but they were not very helpful in arranging any other details. We wanted to spend time at the Vatican and then to have time for our own exploring and Viking was unable to arrange any skip the line at the Vatican. We arranged our own but would have liked to have had it coordinayed with/by Viking. They could provide us no information.

An excellent guide helped improve our opinion of Naples. A very dirty city but we had taken other tours on previous visits.
