Viking Star Cruise Review by Don Troiani

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Feb 2019
  • Destination: Cuba

Due to engine trouble on a Cuba cruise we missed the port of Santiago. Things happen OK. However, on a 7 day cruise that left us with 2 1/2 days in Cuba and the rest of the time on the ship. Viking has offered a 30% credit on a future cruise if you book within a year or $500.00 cash to sign a settlement agreement to keep your mouth shut. Considering that our cabins cost 10k for two people I think the 30% should be a cash refund not a ploy to get you to book another cruise.

In addition there was a NORO outbreak , our shower door leaked and flooded the bathroom floor. Also the day trip to Havana involved 7 hours on a cramped Chinese made bus. The bus was clean but be prepared to have your knees butted against the front seat for that time. Tour guide Manny was very good though.

Take something from the ship to eat for lunch because you may not want the mystery meat lunch at the state owned tourist restaurant in Havana.

Went on two of the river cruises and had other problems .

We are done with Viking.

Cabin Review

Cabin Jr Suite 7002

Cabin was clean and very nice except for leaky shower door. TV was impossible to watch much of the time do to freezing up every 10 seconds or so. Cabin service was attentive and very good.
