We thoroughly enjoyed a two week Baltic cruise a year ago on the Star's virtually identical sister ship the Viking Sea, but were mildly disappointed on this repositioning cruise.
Perhaps Viking is having some challenges keeping up with their rapid expansion. Perhaps nothing's quite as good the second time, even Viking's new Ocean Ships. Perhaps we shouldn't expect as much on a repositioning cruise.
We still had a great time, and it was a very enjoyable cruise. The on board staff on the whole was as friendly and helpful as ever. The ship was clean, beautiful, well thought out with lots of gorgeous uncrowded spaces. And good discounts were available for the repositioning cruise. But Viking seems to be falling short in areas of logistics and overall experience, a thought we heard echoed by other passengers on this cruise.
