  3. Viking Star
My husband and I have always wanted to experience a Mediterranean cruise. We are so pleased that we booked with Viking. What an amazing trip for a couple 50+ partners. Service was excellent. Employees were very friendly and available from the time of waking to turning in at night. Josephine took special care of our room -twice a day and refilled our fridge (complimentary) daily. The stateroom was very spacious with a full balcony. The bathroom with heated floors and full pressure shower was amazing. We enjoyed the spa area and also participated in a viking bathing ritual for a small fee. Everything was clean and tidy. The food in all locations were superb. Our favorite was Manifreds. I also participated in a cooking class taught by the ship chef. The only complaint is that I ate too much food. (Ok, no complaints) The excursions were well organized and Viking employees were everywhere to assist. We couldn't have asked for anything different. Finally - let's talk people and atmosphere. The ship felt like a home away from home. The atmosphere was relaxing and fun; from tea in the Wintergarden room to the nightly entertainment and meeting others. We met so many wonderful people. If we ever get the opportunity, Viking will be our choice.
