Hi,
When they refer to a ‘collard shirt’ for men does this include Polo shirts?
With regard to the spa, do they have nail salon that provides a gel polish infill service?
Thanks
( I received my pre cruise pack yesterday and I don’t know if I’m excited or having a little panic ! )

They aren't quite full-service because they do not do acrylics of any kind. A year ago Viking shared the list of services in another post. BTW, the prices quoted include a 15% gratuity.

A collared shirt is pretty much anything that isn't a T-shirt (or tank).

Thanks so much for the salon link.
I am getting a regular French nail manicure on Sat, but I will be on a 15 day cruise three days later, so I will use the salon! I do not like gel polish.

We were onboard the Star recently and the evening attire was all over the place for both men and women. A polo shirt for a man would definitely be acceptable.

Enjoy your cruise!

Yes on the collared shirt...polo ("golf") shirt will do.
I do not know about your spa question as I did not use.

Thanks for your replies.
I have another question about the tags for the suitcases that have your stateroom number on. Do you attach them before you fly or put them on when you pick up your luggage off the carrousel?
Thanks

When you get them off the carousel because 1) they can get torn off in transit and 2) because they contain too much personal information.

They’re on the very high side of reasonable, or the low side of outrageous, I guess, depending on how much you need or want the service! I found price lists on line for all of the basic spa treatments, and when I had a massage on a recent (January 2018) cruise, the online prices were pretty close to what I found onboard. (About 40% higher than the prices I pay on land.). I will say that it was totally worth it - one of the top 5 massages I’ve had in my entire life. I didn’t use the nail or hair services, but I heard many people raving about them, in spite of the prices.

I had a haircut last year on Star for $65.00. I had a beautiful cut (note: I had long hair at the time). The price was very reasonable imho.
