This was our second trip on the Viking Star having been on the Baltic Cruise in July 2015.
The ship was very well taken care of. It was like a five star hotel with amenities and tours included at every port. The tours introduced you to the port and took you all around to the sights by foot or on buses.
The cabins are very roomy with full size closets, bathroom with heated floors, a large flat screen tv on which they had TED talks and the workshops given on the ship. They are decorated quite nicely. The bedding is excellent and each room has a nice balcony with two comfortable chairs and a table where you can have a meal and enjoy the views.
The food is excellent, like the finest restaurants. Plus 24 hour Room Service.
They offer a full schedule of events each day and a wonderful tea time. All around the ship are musical presentations. The piano player was superb. In addition the entertainment crew were excellent and performed on many nights in various venues.
This is not a ship for children. It does not have a casino but we didnt miss it at all.
It is just what a retired couple enjoys, peaceful days and evenings, relaxing shows,
great niteclub entertainment and of course some quality shoppes.
Everyone on the ship was accommodating. The steward was excellent and a big help to meet our needs. As I said this was our second trip and we are already registered for a cruise to Alaska and looking forward to it.
The transfer to the airport was very smooth. Our luggage was handled for us.
this trip to Normandy could have been 5* but the worst rainy day and the restaurant didi not have our order that was sent in.
Enjoyed this town that has a river running through it very much. Beautiful.
