We have traveled on several Viking River Cruises in Europe that are fantastic. Friends raved about a cruise in the Aegean and Mediterranean Seas on the Viking Star. One look at the web shots of the Viking Sun convinced us to take the three-week cruise from Miami to Los Angeles. All of our expectations were exceeded. Transfer from the airport to the ship was efficient. Boarding took about 10 minutes and we met our friends who took the Viking Star cruise in the cafeteria. Food at all of the venues was terrific. There were even Chinese pork dumplings at breakfast. Manfredi's was especially scrumptious. Kudos for the lobster stir-fried noodles at 10 o'clock PM by the pool. The Scandinavian decor and accommodations on the entire ship were clean, sleek and comfortable. The Theatre was especially well-done. It was a perfect venue for he entertainment and lectures. The quality of the musicians, singers, magicians and lecturers was the best among the several cruise companies that we have used. The most impressive part of our experience was the friendliness of the staff from the cabin attendants to the captain. Some of the lecturers told us that they had never been welcomed as well or treated as well as they had on this cruise. They said that when the staff is treated well by the company it shows in the quality of their service for the passengers. We want to especially that our wonderful cruise director, who had a wonderful personality and a startlingly powerful mezzo suprano voice. Our staff guide on the trip to Havana was lovely and made the tour especially enjoyable. Later we learned that she was the captain's wife! Bus 49 forever! We meet terrific fellow passengers and were sad to leave half of them when we disembarked at Long Beach. However, we are enjoying their blogs during the rest of their round-the-world cruise. We've signed up for the Bergen to Iceland cruise on the Viking Star in 2019.

Luxury, Gourmet Food, Fantastic Entertainment, Too Notch Service at Sea!

Cabin Review

Cabin 5012
Beautifully planned and appointed. Storage was very good and the bathroom with water tight, glass shower doors was comfortable. The only problem was the intermittently slow internet connections caused by some passengers continually streaming data on their personal computers.
