  3. Viking Star
Not only was this our first Viking cruise, but it was our first cruise period. Loved the ports between Rome and Athens. The best port was Ephesus and it was AMAZING. The tour guides were all very pleasant and knowledgeable. It was nice that they were all locals, so could give a very authentic experience. Our stateroom was wonderful. The staff was excellent. They were on top of our every need or desire at any time. Food was great. Loved how the food offerings changed throughout the trip to mirror the ports we were seeing. The spa was great. Both my wife and I enjoyed a massage and a facial. The onboard phone app was a very nice way to book events (at the spa, dinners, excursions, etc.), check the schedule and the weather. We have another Viking cruise booked for later on this year and can't wait for it.

Amazing first cruise with Viking
