  3. Viking Star
If you are interested in seeing and learning about the Ancient Greek, Roman, and Minoan cultures, this is the cruise for you. Viking offers five star service all the way through along with a good selection of excursions. The food and wine selections are also the very best. Whether eating at The Restaurant, The Chefs Table, or Manfredi’s there is something you will like. There are great alternatives at Mamsens and Wintergarten, as well as the buffet at the World Cafe. The cold plunge pool and dry sauna were also great. We did find that the organization or selection of a couple of the excursions could have been done better, but they were still better than other cruise lines. Also, the entertainment is not the best, but it was still a good time. There were several places on the ship to relax and enjoy a drink, all with a good atmosphere. Torshavn was a nightclub setting with a good selection of Armagnac. Also good drinks and atmosphere at the Pool bar, Explorers Lounge, Aquavit Terrace, and Atrium.

Great Voyage to see Ancient Antiquities

Cabin Review

Cabin
Cabin was great! Veranda view in the middle of the ship. Offered excellent view of the ports. Room was spacious enough to relax in, it even included binoculars, stocked refrigerator, and a vanity mirror. The heated floors in the bathroom were perfect.
