Dalmatian coast - terrible weather and missed 2 ports- very disappointing by JLWK

We know weather was raining and windy, but to miss 3 ports is not very good for only a 9 day cruise ! We wonder why could the MSC cruise ship get into the ports on the days we could not get in, is the MSC a better more stable ship ? should we have taken their cruise ? Excursions on Viking Star - very short and quality is poor, with little value, even the ones that are extra fees. 40 plus guests are TOO many on included and those with an extra charge !! We will need to understand if there is a problem with the Viking Star or the captain, before we consider travel on it again. Hotel and Food & Beverage were OK.

Viking did an excellent job of rescheduling many excursions due to uncooperative weather. Well done!

Although the the first two days were two fats of hell, flight delays and being stuck overnight in New Jersey and being 25 hours late boarding the ship, the cruise was more than I expected. Great ship and even better service from staff. Only problem, as noted earlier, was with the shower and it not being handled in a timely manner. Also Venice could have been handled better.

Ship was great ; weather not; substitution of Naples(which we didnt see) and Palma well below our high expectations. Our Viking River trip on the Danube set the bar high formking mid course corrections! I would expect some credit on our next trip (australia in 1/19) will be made.

Best of Italy and Spain by carondi

The Viking experience was our best yet. We took another company's river cruise last year and thought we had experienced the best until this cruise. While still on a fairly small ship, the Viking Star was elegant as she was equipped with the finest staff, cuisine, lodging, and excursion choices. We look forward to our next Viking cruise!!

Plan your cruise very carefully. List port times first, then plan your excursions. The earlier in a port you do an excursion the better. Sometimes we ran into the problem that we arrived somewhere, our tour was several hours later but there was not enough time to go ashore & return for the tour. So our free time was compromised.

We started in Bergen so we added a 3 day tour in Iceland beforehand. I would not xtend in Stockholm - too long.
