    The Royal Viking ships: unclear which one.

    It's hard to say which of the 3 sister ships these are.

    Glacier Bay, Alaska:



    Geiranger, Norway:



    At sea:

    That's easy: it's Royal Viking Star!

    The three original Royal Viking sisters could be easily distinguished after their '80s strech, as no two emerged identically from it. Before the stretch, however, it is more difficult to tell them apart. However Royal Viking Star can always be distinguished from the Sky & Sea by the stateroom windows below the bridge area (on the Promenade Deck). On the Star these were narrower than the Sky & Sea and had only one vertical division. On the Sky & Sea, aside from being wider, these windows had two vertical divisions. This feature was unaltered pre & post stretching. You can see the wider windows up close on RV Sea, below:

      Also, correct me if I am wrong, however was Royal Viking Star the only one that sailed in Alaska in original (pre-stretch) configuration?

        Thank you so very much for that information. I just learned a great deal that I had never known, nor seen (as in noticed) myself.
