Viking Star

Viking Ocean Cruises, Viking Star Afternoon tea in the Wintergarden Viking Ocean Cruises

This is the first ship to debut from Viking Ocean Cruises, the oceangoing line by the team behind Viking River Cruises. Launched in spring 2015, the 930-passenger Viking Star is best known for being more all-inclusive than competitors, with Wi-Fi, alcohol, all specialty restaurants, and even some shore excursions included in the fare.

What We Love

The Infinity Pool: The first infinity pool at sea sits on the rear of the ship, with a gorgeous view of the wake.

LivNordic Spa: Created in partnership with a Scandinavian spa company, this spa is a step above what you’ll find on other ships, with a stunning thermal area that’s blissfully included for all passengers. Hats for sale that were hand-knit by a Scandinavian grandma add a personal touch here.

Best Known For

Chic Design Choices: The ship has a modern, clean design that makes all the flashy colorful Las Vegas-influenced ships look a bit tacky in comparison.

Walking Tours: Wander the streets of European towns behind a guide who speaks into a microphone that’s then broadcast to headphones in your ears.

Large, Comfortable Cabins: The staterooms have a similar clean, bright look, as well as nice touches such as 24-hour room service (which is included) and heated bathroom floors.

Who It's Best For

Sophisticated Travelers: This ship draws a well-heeled crowd of cruisers who love the calm, elegant atmosphere and the well-done takes on classic experiences, such as afternoon tea and an exquisite buffet that sometimes features local ingredients a chef picked up in port.

Don't Say We Didn't Warn You

Itineraries Are Limited: Viking Star sails in the Baltic and the Mediterranean, year-round.
