  3. Viking Star
We chose this cruise because of the itinerary and because we cruised on their river cruises and were excited when Viking went to Ocean cruises and we were not disappointed. From the easy embarkation to the end everything was top shelf in our opinion. Our bags were in our stateroom before we were and our cabin girl introduced herself and showed us the room. We were happy to find a cruise line with all rooms having decks, no casinos, no children and only 930 passengers. We have do large ships and kids cruises but at this point in our lives we don't want all that. The service was excellent from our room steward to the waiters and people getting us on and off the ship each day all were great. Being a small ship allowed us good docking areas and the Viking buses were waiting for our included tours at each port. Viking is very port intensive so only one day at sea but we enjoyed the Swedish spa especially the salt water bubbly pool, steam room, snow grotto and clean changing rooms with an attendant for any questions. Shows were nice but more low key then on bigger ships but the entertainment was top notch. Food was very good and I liked that for the buffet the crew gave you the food for most of it so no worries about someone picking it up and putting it back. All in all a wonderful cruise and can't wait for our next one with Viking.

Excellent Cruise

Cabin Review

Cabin 4080
Large bathrooms, comfortable bed, nice frig that was restocked daily, coffee machine, can't say enough about housekeeping as our room steward was always cleaning and she was always smiling. The washer/dryers on each floor helped us as we were on a 2 month vacation.
