"We chose the cruise because we wanted a smaller ship, heard Viking was terrific, and wanted to go through the Panama Canal.We connected with a driver on our first evening by accident (no plan) and he drove us the rest of the time as we saw much of Panama City, had two dinners, and had to leave for the airport at 4:30am!!!..."Read More

This is our second time on the Viking Star and our first "post covid" Viking Ocean Cruise. For the most part we were very pleased with our cruise. The service at all levels and from all departments was outstanding. Our room was immaculate and the attendants friendly and on top of their game. Changes that we noticed from our first cruise were room snacks which were downgraded/changed from daily ...

This cruise was a delightful surprise. It exceeded our expectations in every way. This was our first Viking cruise and we are truly spoiled now. The service and food was exceptional. We especially loved that the small ship had only 900 passengers. The ship was never loud or obnoxious. The main rooms were very comfortable and beautifully decorated. It was never crowded anywhere. We were called ...

We decided to cruise during Christmas and New Years to get away from the stress of the holiday season. The ship was decorated for the holidays and they had many festive events onboard without the hassle of doing and planning this yourself. On Christmas Day we were at sea and they had a very nice nondenominational prayer service. The staff is the best. They use your name whenever they ...

Itinerary was seemingly perfect for us. disappointed that key west was eliminated, although not viking’s decision, the compensation did not make up for a lost port. the ship, the stateroom, the spa and thermal pool were excellent. we appreciated the excellent service on the ship and thought our fellow passengers were compatible. the food was excellent, we enjoyed the restaurant more than the ...

Our cruise overall was very good. The Star being built in 2015 and Vikings oldest ocean ship is still in lovely condition, as the crew is continually doing upkeep and maintenance. There are many comfortable public areas to sit and relax to where one would never realize there are ~900 passengers onboard. The quality of musical entertainment was outstanding. We had some great nights in the Torshavn ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 70s

Neither my husband nor I had ever been on a cruise before, but in 2019 we decided to book a European Viking River Cruise for July 2020. After Viking had to cancel the river cruise three times due to Covid-19, we opted to change our cruise to an ocean cruise nearer home. We chose Viking because we knew several people who had been on their river cruises and loved them. We had also read many, many ...

This was our sixth Viking cruise & it was outstanding (as were the previous cruises). From the captain to the housekeeping people, all crew staff were very efficient, always friendly & always willing to exceed our expectations. The food was consistently good with enough variety to keep things interesting. Our favorite dining experience was at Manfredi's. Their food was outstanding & their ...

We chose the cruise because we wanted a smaller ship, heard Viking was terrific, and wanted to go through the Panama Canal. All Viking ocean ships carry no more than 930 passengers. Check! Viking WAS terrific. Check! and we went through the Panama Canal. Check! We appreciated that every stop had an included excursion. We took advantage of that for some stops and upgraded two because of our ...

Overall this was a very good cruise. However, since this was our first Viking Ocean cruise, I had higher expectations. The best part was the crew - they were fantastic. The ship was beautiful and our cabin (we stayed in category DV6, deck 3) was spacious enough and clean (could have used a little more drawer space - had to live out of suitcase for some items). The bathroom was also very ...

I have been on a few cruise lines and always heard that Viking is top tier. I am disappointed to say that it was not as good as it could of been. I found it to be just above mediocre due to a couple of reasons. 1st, the food was simply average. The service in the specialty restaurants was spotty, with one night sitting there for almost an 45 minutes before getting served our food. I ...
