We previously did two river cruises with Viking. This was our first ocean cruise with them and we will definitely do another. We're waiting for them to go to New Zealand and Australia! The Viking Star is a beautiful ship. We stayed in a Penthouse Suite and absolutely loved our room. The heated floors in the bathroom (so nice since we sailed in March), very comfortable king size bed, plenty of storage space, nice sitting area, mini bar, spacious balcony. Every crew member was always ready to help with a smile on their face. The spa was fun - we were able to use it even though we didn't purchase a separate service which was really nice as most cruise lines won't let you use the facilities unless you buy a service. We used the wet sauna and snow grotto twice, envigorating! All the food served on the ship was delicious. The food and wine pairings at Chef's Table were a lot of fun - especially for foodies. We also really enjoyed Manfredi's - great atmosphere. We are early to rise/early to bed so we didn't take part in any of the evening entertainment but it did all sound good. We did a few of the provided excursions, but the majority of what we did was paid excursions because we wanted to see more than what was in the local area. All of the tours were very interesting and the local guides were excellent. We highly recommend Viking Ocean Cruises. Read Less

We had traveled with Viking on a river cruise in China about two years before this trip. That cruise was one of the best we have ever experienced, so we wanted to cruise again with Viking. The ocean cruise in the western Mediterranean was an ideal trip to allow my wife to visit many of the places that I had visited on my tours of the Med while serving in the U. S. Navy. We experienced some new areas as well. I had never been to Corfu or Croatia. Those three stops were the best of the entire cruise. We had only one afternoon to explore Barcelona, but we enjoyed strolling the full length of the Ramblas. The ship was new, elegant, beautiful. The cabin was large with a fantastic balcony. Dining was more than we could have imagined (this was our 6th shipboard cruise). Every shore excursion was well organized, informative and enjoyable. My wife has limited mobility and uses a transporter chair most of the time. The crew and staff went above and beyond in helping us get on and off the ship, on walking tours, and on bus tours. The staff and crew were superb. We will definitely travel again with Viking. We are looking at the trip that includes Ireland, Scotland and England. Read Less
