|First glimpse of The World's Best New Cruise Ship of 2015|
Day 4 dawned rainy and the roof top breakfast room at the Hotel Cram was filled with unhappy tourists. I could not have cared less. Because from the rooftop, I could see the funnel of the ship. Boarding time was 11:00 am and it was all I could do to contain myself from racing down and waiting for embarkation to begin. I barely restrained myself, packing up and finally getting into a taxi at the stroke of 11. Off I went to Moll Addosat, the enormous cruise ship facility constructed to welcome up to 11 cruise liners in a day. One day last summer, 56,000 passengers came and went from the port, the largest cruise ship stop in the Mediterranean and the fourth largest in the world. I am relieved to tell you that there was nowhere near that number of cruisers the day we arrived on board Viking Star.
