Beautiful Mediterranean cruise with a few wrinkles by eschoeps

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

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

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

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).

Great crew and ship by Cabin4080

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Singles/Friends

The average age of the cruisers seemed to be 75ish. Being under 50, the entertainment and expert speakers weren’t my style.

Excellent by cherylstallings

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

The Viking Star is an exceptional ship and the staff couldn't be better. Our hotel for the overnight in Havana was top notch as was the dinner and the entertainment. This was a fantastic opportunity to meet the people of Cuba and learn about their culture. We will definitely be cruising on Viking Ocean again. Thanks for a very memorable 7 days!

Unbelievable trip through the Viking Homelands by pmueller80

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Although we have only been on three cruises....this was one of our most memorable experiences vacationing. We have travelled the world mostly on our own and don't particularly like arranged travel. However, this will go down as one of our best vacations ever...due to the contentious staff of Viking, their attention to detail and the wonderful and fun loving staff.....everyday we couldn't believe it but it just kept getting better!!

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

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

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.

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

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

Great memories by mtcaldo

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

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.

Great ship; unfortunate prts available by philipvasta

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

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

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

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!!

Couldn’t be better or easier by IndyRon

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

This is an excellent choice if you’re looking for a relaxed yet classy experience. No formal nights, no charge for speciality restaurants (Manfredi’s was exceptional), wonderful spa area, plenty of space to just hang out.

Southern Mediterranean Cruise, minus 2 stops by epinorth

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Wonderful cruise experience on Viking Star (beautiful ship, nicely appointed cabins, professional staff, good food and drink) but disappointing that we missed two ports (Sicily and especially Algiers -- how many other opportunities will anyone have to go there?).

Not the Cruise that we expected by maryloucarino

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

The first week on board was okay until starting December 2, we had a "hot water" problem in our cabin, which persisted until December 6. This problem ruined the whole cruise. I was stressed out not knowing if I could shower or not. They said (Receptionist Desk) that Los Angeles Office was made aware of this, but to date nobody has contacted me yet about our misfortune in this particular cruise. Also, we felt there some kind of discrimination when being served compared to faired skin passengers.

Outstanding Journey Into Antiquity and Holy Land by deltamchsman

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

One of our best cruises. Great itinerary, excellent food and wine, friendly ship staff. Look forward to our next Viking cruise, a Viking river cruise in Portugal and another ocean cruise in 2019.

VIKING ADVENTURE by ldorge

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

We would heartily recommend this cruise to anyone who enjoys the cruise experience. It is not geared to families with children - thank you. The staff and crew definitely have had excellent training in attending to the expectations of the passengers. The food was good and the cabins and public areas were always clean and well-cared for. I am not sure why the rating does not add up to a "5" as that would be our recommendation.

Scandinavian Voyage by leejb

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

We also cruised to Eidfjord, Norway. Beautiful fjord. Included tour here was terrible, a 20 minute bus ride to museum, 2 hours alloted, only needed 30 minutes. Small town and there was not much to do the rest of the time in port. Included tours to Eidfjord, Bergen, & Berlin need to be revamped. This is advertised as all-inclusive, therefore each included tour should allow for a good experience in each port of call. In the places mentioned, it is necessary to purchase an optional tour for that good experience. This cruise was mostly very good. The itinerary was very interesting and it's a great part of the world to visit. I think if Viking makes a few changes it will be a great cruise.

Baltic Sea Cruise by gustafson89

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Cruise was great, but the pre-cruise excursion to Iceland was not worth the money. Viking should have planned an excursion of some sort on the day we all arrived and made arrangements for us to get into our rooms early. We sat in the hotel lobby for over 6 hours with nothing to do until we were finally allowed into our rooms. Most of us had traveled overnight and were extremely tired.
