A tour of cabin 4061 on the Viking Star cruise ship. This is a category DV4 Deluxe Verandah stateroom, which is the smallest type of cabin on Viking Ocean cruises.
In the video, I give you an overall look at the cabin, the bathroom, and the balcony… as well as going in to some very specific details that you might not pick up on at first. We take a look at the number of electrical outlets, the unfortunate lack of storage, and the shower that’s roomy enough for a romantic couple to enjoy together.
I made a very poor choice of words in the video when I described the bed as a “double bed”. It’s actually a lot bigger than a double bed. It’s two twins pushed together to create a King-sized bed. It was VERY comfortable.
I also forgot to mention that the location of the cabin is excellent: mid-ship, between the forward and mid-ship elevators. The cabin was quiet, except for a slightly noisy air conditioning system. Other than that, this was a very quiet cabin with an excellent location.
I do think that if/when I cruise with Viking Ocean cruises again, I will book a Penthouse Veranda cabin rather than a Deluxe Veranda cabin. The Penthouse Veranda cabins are slightly larger, and I bet they have more storage. With a Penthouse Veranda, there are also free alcoholic beverages in the refrigerator, and they are replenished daily.
I do truly appreciate that Viking Ocean cruises allows you to carry your own alcohol onboard. It was fantastic to not have to smuggle rum onboard. It was much more convenient to just openly pack a bottle of rum in my suitcase without having to try to disguise it.
