Viking Star Cruise Review by KiwiClaire

  • Destination: the Mediterranean

We wanted to visit this part of the world and this itinerary gave us the perfect opportunity to see several places in one holiday.

We enjoyed all the stops, and loved everything about the onboard experience. The ship design, decor and upkeep are excellent.

Food and drink are fabulous. We especially loved Manfredis restaurant, but we enjoyed the Chefs Table too although we selected our menu carefully because not all of them appealed to us. The Restaurant was consistently high standard, Mamsens deli has a limited selection but us great for a simple breakfast or lunch.

There are bars everywhere so you don’t have to go far for a drink. The Explorers Lounge bar was our favourite spot because of the stunning views. There is a main pool with covered and uncovered loungers and sofa style seating, and and aft infinity pool with loungers that shares space with the Aquavit terrace. We hung out at the aft pool. There is a sun deck too. Absolutely no problem finding somewhere to chill out. Every staff member was great to interact with.

Loved the spacious room with a sofa. Lots of drawer and hanging space, simple elegant decor. Comfortable bed! Spacious balcony.

Smart, modern, clean bathroom. Great shower. Heated bathroom floor a bonus.

Loved the Acropolis but the driving around first was too long and a bit boring.

Not a lot to see in Koper. It's more of s starting point for longer excursions. However we were back on the ship by the pool with a cocktail, relaxing on our last day.
