Viking Sun Overview

Editors' Note: Viking Sun is no longer in service.

Viking Sun offers (some) staterooms with French windows that open as well as in-cabin Internet access. Otherwise, the ship features the expected river ship amenities, such as a restaurant, lounge, bar, sun deck and library. All cabins have private bathrooms with shower.

Viking Sun sails cruises along the Rhine River, with calls at Brugge, Rotterdam, Amsterdam, Germany's Black Forest, Strasbourg and the mythical Lorelei Rock, located in the narrow passage of the Rhine Gorge.
