We have had an incredible journey on the Viking Star. I shall do a review but if anyone has any questions fire away!

Definitely looking forward to your review of excursions you took. We too are extending in Venice and considering a private tour.Hi, we hired a private guide from ‘tours by locals’. It isn’t cheap but the places she showed us we would have never found on our own. Part of the trip went to the glass factory and was fascinating. When they take you through the showroom they say their is no obligation to buy but they hope you will. Oh, and the prices will make your toes curl up !
My DH and I are taking this cruise next April to celebrate our 25th anniversary. I would love to hear which excursions you did, and what you thought.Hi, you have good need to look forward, the ships are amazing. Excursion wise, we enjoyed all we did but I will say that if you dock in Zadar go to the Krka National Park it is absolutely beautiful and would have hated to have missed seeing it.
We will be arriving in Athens the day of departure, but have business class air booked, so hoping we are rested on arrival, so we can see some sights the first day.
I am looking forward to your review (and am excited about our first Viking cruise)
We are doing the reverse itinerary, starting in Venice and with the add on tour in Athens. Looking forward to your review, and thanks in advance for taking the time to post your review.Hi, you will love the ship. I’ve not had an email to say my review has been posted yet, they said it could be a few days. The itinerary is excellent and although we knew little about Montenegro it was one of our favourite places.
We’ll be on the Star in just over 2 weeks! 1st time Viking. How was the food? What was your favorite dish?Hi, the food is out of this world. The ribeye steak in Manfredies is delicious. If you think the buffet restaurant will be inferior to the other options, think again. That was like no buffet I’ve ever seen before, fantastic! This was our first time on Viking and I’m sure it won’t be our last.

Travelling Aug. 12- Venice-Athens on the Orion. I look forward to your review although I realize we are on a different ship. Any travel tips about cruising with Viking and port related tips are most welcome.Hi, tips about Viking, just go !
Glad you had a great trip! We'll be returning to Star in June. How did you like the ship? Crew? Food? Drinks? I guess I have to wait for the review...lol will be waiting for it and thank you in advance!Hi, the crew and room stewards were lovely. The food, top notch. The drinks outside of the included ones we found very reasonable price wise. You already know the ship is beautiful, lucky you going again!
We are Athens-Venice in April 2019. It will be our first ocean cruise (we did Viking River Cruise a couple years ago). Looking forward to your review...especially interested in excursion experiences!Hi, you will not be disappointed with ocean cruise. Excursions I believe can change from year to year but I hope they keep Zadar for your trip to be able to see the Krka National Park, it’s beautiful.
Hi, you have good need to look forward, the ships are amazing. Excursion wise, we enjoyed all we did but I will say that if you dock in Zadar go to the Krka National Park it is absolutely beautiful and would have hated to have missed seeing it.We found that the included excursion in Zadar was the least interesting of all our shore excursions, perhaps because the guide was not up to the standards of our other guides. You were fortunate to take an optional excursion that you loved. With the ship docked right in the heart of the town, you could still take a walk around after your optional tour just for a quick look-see.
