Viking Sun Cruise Review by YosemiteCruiser
- Sail Date: November 2017
- Destination: Transatlantic
My largest disappointment was that the Viking bed sheets gave me contact dematitis. The soap they use and the scratchiness of the sheets surprised me! When I asked my steward if there were other sheets on board that were less scratchy she said "no"! On day 3 (after mentioning the concern each day) I was given 2 pillows that were washed without laundry soap. This helped...but I still continued to get rashes fron the sheets themselves! I would have thought that a line (like Viking) would have soft, allergy-free linens.
We thoroughly enjoyed the French cooking class (extra $) worth the experience.
The wine at lunch and dinner was a nice touch, except it was all French wine...and the same taste each day. It would direct you to purchase the beverage package for "the experience" of dining/pairing. If you are just looking for wine without a pricetag...it is fine.
The music offered on the ship was perfect for us (guitarist, pianist and 3 piece orchestra. Evening shows were good. Loved the movie afternoon with popcorn.
For us...one of the greatest things Viking offered was the cappacino bars. What a treat!
So...we had the great and the missed on this trip...our expectations being met in some areas and fell wayfully short in other areas.
