Viking Sun (Retired) Cruise Review by Mcfin17
- Sail Date: April 2013
- Destination: Europe River
- Cabin Type: Standard Stateroom
We liked that lunch on board offered two options: either in the main dining room or in the lounge. Having the chef outline the evening's dinner menu each night was a plus.
The shore excursions were excellent. We never felt hurried and we had plenty of free time with each excursion. At the end of the trip, Viking's departure process was very organized. As a retired military member, I'm used to logistics and organization. The Viking Sun crew gets high marks from me!
We visited Kinderdijk, Netherlands; Cologne, Germany; Koblenz, Germany (where we visited Marksburg Castle);Mannheim, Germany where we went by bus to Heidelberg; Kehl, Germany where we went by bus to Strasbourg, France; Breisach, Germany where we took a bus ride to the Black Forest and visited a cuckoo clock workshop (and ate real Black Forest cake!). Final port was Basel, Switzerland where we transferred to the airport for our trip home.,
