Viking Sun Cruise Review by RazzFamilyTravels

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Dec 2017
  • Destination: Cuba

Wanted to visit Cuba and love sailing with Viking so this was a good fit for us. Rated very good instead of excellent because we did not dock in Havana. Instead we were tendered in Cienfuegos, which is about a 4 hour drive to Havana. Viking offered an included overnight excursion to Havana which we did. We rode in a bus to Havana, visited an artist in their home, had a good tour of old Havana and had a nice lunch with music. Hotel was nice. For dinner, we were picked up in the classic convertibles (a highlight for us) and driven to another restaurant, then onto to Tropicana. Wonderful show. Next day on way back to ship, did a tour of Bay of Pig museum...this could be excluded in future tours, in our opinion. We also did the included excursion to the city of Trinidad. Drive was a little over an hour. Saw more of countryside. Good tour. We had read postings from others who did this trip 2 weeks prior to us so we were prepared with hand sanitizer, tissues, etc. 2 of the restaurants we went to did not have flushing toilets...attendant had to prime them with water after use (maybe too much info there)

Sun is a beautiful ship. Never feels crowded. We enjoyed entertainment in the Exployers Lounge and Atrium Bar. The Long and Winding Road show poolside was fun as was the ABBA show. We found service aboard to be wonderful. We were very surprised that they ran out of Chardonnay on Day 2 of our cruise. Our favorite dining is at Manfredi’s. No cost but reservations required. The Restautant also has wonderful food. Not a big fan of The Chefs Table as you have no idea what menu they will offer when you make reservations prior to sailing. It is fixed menu but does have wonderful wine pairing. Would be nice if they would post menus on MyVikingJourney so you could select a day with a menu you would enjoy most.

Cabin Review

Cabin DV1 3048

We like PV category better as a bit larger but this was a short cruise so opted for the DV1. Lots of outlets, heated bathroom floor, ample drawers and closet space. Nice veranda. Bathroom plenty big.
