  3. Viking Star
We have sailed on multiple lines and have a number on premium lines like Oceania. Having had a positive experience on Viking River, we took our first cruise with Viking Ocean. The ship was very comfortable and the service was extraordinary. The 900 passenger size made it feel large enough to have the amenities we wanted, but small enough to be cozy and make new friends. The entertainment was very good and had a nice variety. The shows were understandably smaller than the mega ships, however very enjoyable. The restaurants had delicious food great service. The specialty Restaurants were excellent. The buffet had a good variety and was acceptable, but not outstanding. The grill-to-order steaks were excellent, but other dishes left room for improvement. We enjoyed the informative port talks and several ment lectures. Interesting subjects presented by knowledgeable folks. We thoroughly enjoyed the excursions. We appreciate the included excursions and took many with great experiences. We also took several optional excursions with positive Experiences and good value. In summary, we will definitely sail with Viking again and have booked our next trip.

Cabin Review

Cabin
Cabin was spacious and comfortable. One of the notable features was the shower size. At 6’2”, I was able to comfortably shower without feeling like I was in a phone booth!
