Expected more from Viking by wncruiser

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Viking Star

Overall we were disappointed in our first Viking cruise. For this price point their competitors offer a much better experience. More inclusive (tips and liquor), much better food and friendlier staff.

Disappointed trip by yoliyuan

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Viking Star

Skipped two ports due to the Hurricane. Instead visited Quebec City twice. Charged me $59 for a simple walking tour. It should be free because we skipped 2 ports and skipped 2 included excursions

Beyond Expectations by lynntut

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Viking Star / Destination: Panama Canal, Central America

Excellent. Only really negative things was that they could have communicated better about what was going on with the ships dr and covid and about the cancellation of Key West. Food, cabin, service, ship, simply amazing. Also covid protocols were great. PCR tested every single day and trackers. It will be hard to go back to those big ships. We were totally spoiled.

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.

Nice trip to see the Northern Lights by lindamarietrapp

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

We loved visiting a Norway, truly a wonderful experience. Our third Viking trip in 12 months- love the line, but not quite up to our experience on the Sun. That was a tad disappointing for us.

Amazing Ship, Not So Amazing Itinerary by STinTX

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

Overall we really enjoyed the ship. With two days at sea out of a seven day trip, we took advantage of the spa, relaxing spaces and visiting with new friends made on the cruise. Very easy to do with the smaller Viking ship and less than 1,000 passengers. The ship never felt crowded.

Tuscany to Athens by margaretharriso

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

Our cruise was wonderful and all we have come to expect from Viking. It was an experience of a lifetime and one to share with family and friends. The precruise trip to Tuscany was another story. The Villa we were assigned to was changed three time although we booked the cruise almost a year in advance. This made is a chore to keep family apprised of our whereabouts. The Villa itself, Villa Barronci, was lovely with beautiful country side. However our room could only be described as awkward. There was a step immediately on entering the room then another within three feet of that into the main bedroom area. There was nowhere to place a suitcase to open it outside of putting it on the floor. This awkwardness made it not up to what I would expect from Viking. The staff was friendly and the food excellent. As for the excursions they were exceptional, especially the winery and farm and San Gimignano, except for the excursion to Florence. It was disappointing and pedestrian. I expected a visit to the Uffizi Gallery and was disappointed.

Great Med Cruise! by cdianelove12

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

This was the best cruise we've taken. The food was wonderful, the entertainment was great, we tried to experience everything on the ship ( couldn't!) and had a lovely time. Not enough entertainment at night, or in the afternoons for those who did not spend all day in the ports. We enjoyed the experience and have already booked our next one@!

Beautiful Mediterranean cruise with a few wrinkles by eschoeps

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

It was a beautiful cruise after what we felt was limited and conflicting communication the initial day of boarding. The ship was well maintained, Staff was very attentive, dinning was exquisite, ports of call and excursions were all worthwhile. We enjoyed it thoroughly even if we lacked a little sleep due to location of our room.

A great glimpse of important and beautiful cities and regions of western civilization. by lauder

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

This is a wonderful cruise with the Croatian and Greek stop being the highlights. It was very disappointing not to see the David and the Uffizi in Florence, and Viking should indicate in its materials that because of the day of the week for this stop these two sights cannot be visited.

Antiquities by vcbarrett

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

Wonderful cruise. The weather was cloudy and rainy on the trip up the Adriatic, but the sites were terrific. Loved the pre-cruise extension in Athens. Had a tremendous guide (Eva) and host at the hotel (Emma).
