  1. We were on the Viking Star in July 2015 on one of her first Baltic cruises. A brand new ship! Were supposed to sail Stockholm to Bergen. Shortly after St. Petersburg, she lost power in one of the engines but we were able to limp into Tallin, Estonia. We sat there for 4 days before most of us were flown directly to Bergen for land tours. Big inconvenience, but nothing like the passengers on the Sky are experiencing. My biggest complaint was the lack of communication between headquarters and the ship. We got a different story every few hours as to what our options were. I felt sorry for the crew who weren't sure how to respond to our questions. In Tallin, and again in Bergen, we were very well taken care of. Afterwards, we were also very well compensated. A huge help to be able to post on CruiseCritic during the whole event and afterwards. We did enjoy one more Viking Star cruise - this time in the Caribbean not so far from home. My prayers to the Sky passengers - your patience is going to be sorely tried!
