Viking Star overview

Viking Star is an award-winning small-sized ship from Viking Cruise Line. The vessel is thoughtfully created by experienced nautical architects and designers to guest's interaction with their destinations in every way. Holding only 930 passengers, a voyage on a Viking Star is intimate with an exceptionally low crew to passenger ratio.

Like all Viking Cruise Line vessels, the all staterooms on the Viking Star feature a veranda in each cabin. From Veranda Stateroom cabin class to the abundance of extra perks and amenities in the spacious Explorer Suites, there’s no finer way to travel. Each room features a King-size Viking Explorer Bed, 110/220 volt outlets & USB ports, direct-dial satellite phone & cell service, premium Freyja® toiletries, purified water refilled daily, and free Wi-Fi.

There are no shortage of dining venues and bars on board the Viking Star. Restaurants include Manfredi's Italian Restaurant, The Chef's Table multi-course dining experience, the main Restaurant, lively music venue and bar Torshavn, World Cafe featuring al fresco dining, Explorer's Lounge serving Scandinavian fare, and Mamsen's offering Norwegian specialities. Viking Star also offers an onboard cooking school program called 'The Kitchen Table'.

Other onboard venues include The Viking Living Room, The Spa & Salon, a Fitness Center, Shops, a theatre, an aft infinity pool, heated main pool and hot tub, and s Sports Deck.

Northern Lights Cruise by smarkow314

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Viking Star / Destination: Europe - Northern Europe

Based on our other cruise experiences, we would not consider Viking again unless they had an itinerary that we could not get on another cruise line.

Not really for younger people ( aka 60 down) by JPGM

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Viking Star / Destination: Europe - Northern Europe

Very boring. Good for 70’s and up. You should buy the equipment to see the lights beforehand, otherwise you won’t see anything.

53 Viking Star tips

* Have a Norwegian chef on a Norwegian ship. I talked with head chef and he hadn't heard of several dishes - that are every day Norwegian fare. * Train your entire staff, not just a hand full The old saying, you get what you pay for, certainly doesn't apply to Viking

They offer a regional favorite for each port!!

Don't take too many clothes and go casual. The onboard free laundry provides everything. Also, the drinks that you pay for are very reasonable compared to other ships we've been on.
