  3. Viking Sun
We were looking for a transatlantic cruise for relaxation and comfort. Viking Sun exceeded our expectations. The well trained staff offered excellent service, not only with fulfilling our requests but anticipating our needs. The design and decor of the ship was very attractive with attention to color and comfort detail. Bookshelves stocked with books that would appeal to anyone were scattered throughout the ship. There was always a cozy quiet place to read or simply relax. Dining venues and options were always available from the specialty restaurants to the less formal World Cafe, Pool Grill and Mamsen's. There was something for everyone. The entertainment was diverse - lectures on a variety of subjects, cooking classes, wine tasting classes, ballroom dancing, board games, music, theater shows, movies, and much more. Very impressive to us was that there was absolutely no pressure to buy anything. Attractive stores were available to buy duty free items but so sales pressure. And, there were no photographers ready to snap and urge one to buy. Having heard of these things from fellow travelers on other cruises, this was a big plus for us. If it sounds like we are impressed with Viking - we are, very much so. In fact we have already signed up for another of their cruises next spring.
