Cuba on Viking Star

Viking does a first class job; too bad they couldn't dock in Havana.

Relaxing Viking Experience

Nov 15th, 2018

Wonderful staff, friendly passengers, very clean ship and cabin. Free specialty restaurants were great. Main dining room service was a little slow at times. Overall the food was good. Specialty restaurants were best. Free access to spa area was a great benefit. Entertainment was average with the Viking entertainers. Special entertainers the better nights. I enjoyed the Lecturers, the Under the Stars Movies, Comfortable Lounge for evening music, drinks, and dancing. Didn’t have lines to any restaurants, except one night which was Lobster in the Main dining room, not a long wait. Only Tendered once, easy over and back. My big issue was cost for me as a solo traveler. Hopefully, they will address this with some specials for singles, if they do I will travel again soon.

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

Sep 11th, 2018

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!!

Excellent cruise! First rate food and service!

May 9th, 2018

It was a wonderful cruise! The ship is wonderful! So much excellent food! So much to do on board! My only complaint is that there was too little time in port. You spend hours getting there (mostly while you sleep), but then spend relatively little time in port. So, it is a sampling. You can decide where you want to go back to.

Good cruise

Apr 17th, 2018

Viking offers a lot for the price if you don’t book the most expensive cabins. Having at least one included tour per port is good, plus internet which is slow but at least is something, wine in every meal, and great service. The ship is new and don’t have major issues. We enjoyed our cruise.

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

Apr 1st, 2018

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!

Great memories

Mar 22nd, 2018

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

Mar 16th, 2018

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.
