Viking Star 2015 Cruisers List

Recommended Posts

I mined the postings as best I could and came up with a list of cruisers posting to CC who are booked on the Viking Star. The list is contained in the attached pdf file. I'll try to update the list periodically until it either gets too large to be manageable or we get separate roll calls for each of the cruises. Please respond to this thread with any additions or corrections.

Captainmcd we are John and Ines McDonnell, and are on the maiden voyage. Thanks for your efforts in making this list. It seems like a long way off, but time flies!

Great idea, Roy! I am Becki and my husband is Garrett and we are on the 4/11/15 Empires of the Mediterranean. Also joining us are our friends, Janet and Neil, but they do not participate on CC. We met Janet and Neil on a Viking 'Tulips & Windmills' cruise in April '13, and we will be cruising with them on a Passage to Eastern Europe in June '14 on the Viking Rinda as well.

Lee and Mary Jane just signed up for May 2, 2015....."Passage thru Western Europe"...good thing we didn't wait much longer..v1 has just one cabin left and v2 is sold out.

 

Andy...any chance of adding a 'roll call', option on the forum for Viking Ocean?

Happy birthday and anniversary and again thank you for putting this together. There is an error...probably my mistake. We are booked on September 27 (not October 6), Empires of the Mediterranean.

I just find myself wondering what decks people gravitate to. I've gone as high as possible on the boat, but then I'm physically immune to seasickness/vertigo/dizziness so I don't worry about motion. Since I'm a photographer, I like being only steps away from the weather deck. We chose the starboard side because that will be the shoreward side of the ship for most of the cruise... Or so I assume, anyway :-)

We just booked the Viking Empire, Istanbul to Stockholm. We're on deck 8 for most of the cruise, but unfortunately we have to shift staterooms twice, and the last leg we are on deck 5. Can't believe all the staterooms on deck 8 are already booked for the Baltic leg, but we will keep checking back with Viking in case a stateroom on deck 8 opens up. We also have to change rooms in Venice, but at least we're on the same floor (8) and only have to shift down two rooms. Our names are Joe and Elizabeth. Really looking forward to the cruise - we should certainly all know one another pretty well since this is so far away. Never booked a cruise this far in advance before!

Heard today from Viking Cruises, they are moving towards adopting an official Cruise Critic meet & Mingle program--will be a win-win for both Viking River cruises and Viking Oceans along with Cruise critic--all winners. Giving CC more visibility/views and leading to wonderful camaraderie on board Viking as well as leading to many, many more repeat bookings. Also, as in the deposit refund snafu thread below Viking Cruises told me, they will maintain a recurring presence on this forum, similar to the presence they maintain on the River cruise forum.

Thank Colonel(retired) West for that update.

A presence on these threads to answer specific questions or complaints is very helpful.

That's great news.:) The increased opportunity to get to know fellow cruisers should be particularly beneficial when we are all new to the ship and the line.
