Viking Star Cruise Review by pzenda

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Sep 2019
  • Destination: the Mediterranean

We chose Viking Ocean Cruise because we have taken 2 river cruises and we were extremely impressed with the staff, the ship and the excursions so we decided to go with Viking Ocean. The ship had so much to offer. We loved having the infinity pool to hang out at after an excursion. It was so relaxing and a great place to meet other people. The suites are fabulous, plenty of room to relax and enjoy. The housekeeping staff and other staff are very friendly and always trying to please. We felt the dining was a bit off for breakfast and lunch. We would sit at a table and there would not be a salt and pepper shaker on the table and it would take awhile before someone would come over to help us. The restaurants on the ship were excellent. The only disappointment was that the food did not match the ports that we visited. We felt the food on the river cruise was much better and the variety of food was excellent on the river cruise. We would take another ocean cruise with viking but we prefer the river cruises with less people on the ship.

Cabin Review

Cabin Penthouse veranda suite 5031

The bed is extremely comfortable and there was plenty of room. The sitting area was a nice size and we had plenty of room to move around and not feel cramped. The balcony was larger than on the river cruise and we enjoyed sitting out. The bathroom was a good size and plenty room for 2 of us to be in at the same time.

Guide was great really gave us just enough information. Loved this experience of walking the walls.

Mountain Bike Tour

Great ride however it should be noted it is not easy to moderate

it is moderate too hard. We were fine but others were not. I would have liked a bit longer just to ride along the water.

Island Tour

The highlights of Santorini were great. The winery was fun and great wine. The restaurant choice was awful. The tour should have taken out the lunch and we should have been given enough time to get lunch in Fira on our own or give people the option to just go back to ship. We should have been warned a bit more about the line to get the cable car back to ship. We had no time to do anything in Fira due to the line to the cable car.

Athens (Piraeus)

We wanted to do the town on our own since we had been to Athens with tours in a previous trip. We went to the Jewish Museum which was excellent. We walked all over the Plaka district, shopped and had an excellent lunch. We did climb the Acropolis and all the sights. It was extremely hot so we ended up going back to the ship for dinner. We would have preferred to have dinner in Athens but the ride on the bus back to the Plaka district was too long and we were not in the mood to deal with another bus.
