Not quite Viking's standard

Viking Sun Cruise Review by artts

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Oct 2017
  • Destination: the Mediterranean

Having sailed with Viking before on rivers and the ocean, we were interested in the destinations for this cruise. We were very disappointed to learn we would not visit Kotor as scheduled and our tours in Venice were also cancelled because of fog. The service on board was excellent in most areas but not so in The Restaurant. Most of the staff were excellent but some could not get our orders right. The food was good but not exceptional and the lobster that was served to one of us tasted peculiar and made him sick. The guest speakers were not as interesting or dynamic as on previous voyages. The music in the Atrium was delightful. Overall we felt the experience was being "dumbed-down" to some lower common denominator whereas previous voyages with Viking were elevating.

Our included walking tours of Corfu and Split were very good. Our Dalmation Coast Wine & Food tour in Dubrovnik was excellent as was our Tuscany extension.

Dalmation Coastal Villages

This was the Dalmation Coast Wine & Food tasting tour and was excellent. the Olive Press farm with snack was exceptional! the wine tour and visit to oyster farm and seafood lunch were most enjoyable. Highly recommended.
