We chose this cruise to see Cuba and their culture before it changes. Knew nothing about Viking Ocean Cruises until reading reviews. To our great surprise this turned out to be one of if not the best cruise we have taken.
The Viking Sun is almost brand new which is very apparent as you look around at all the modern technology and spotlessness of everything.
Room was a Deluxe Veranda on deck 3. Very nice with comfortable bed, sitting area, coffee maker and mini-bar.
Food was excellent even in the buffet which is where we ate almost every meal. Wide variety of choices including great sushi and seafood. Servers were very good if you needed something to drink, etc. Bar staff did a wonderful job of making drinks correctly and quickly.
Good entertainment and limited activities but didn't choose this cruise for those things.
First stop was Key West which have been to before so just went into town to walk around have a drink and eat Key West pink shrimp. Next stop was Cienfuegos, Cuba located on the South side of the island. The shore excursion we chose was an overnight stay in Havana at the Melia' Habana that included transportation, lunch, dinner, a wonderful show at the Tropicana and breakfast before returning to the ship. Oh, did I not mention that a group of 74 restored vintage American cars from the 50's picked the group at the hotel and took us in a caravan to the Tropicana. We toured Old Havana, shopped and stopped at the Bay of Pigs Museum on the way back to the ship. Didn't choose to go on another shore excursion because we were happy to enjoy the ship.
We liked Viking so much that we booked a cruise with them for next Fall. We will continue cruising with Viking.
