Viking Sun Cruise Review by Cruise Chris Critic
- Sail Date: October 2017
- Destination: Mediterranean
The pre-extension was essentially all inclusive with wonderful food and locales for breakfast, lunch, and dinner and great included tours of Florence, Sienna, and San Gimignano. It was a small group and we received personal attention but also had enough free time at each site. We stayed at a wonderful villa in the Tuscan countryside near Florence.
We then had a good and quick bus ride to Venice where we boarded the Viking Sun and found it even more inclusive, luxurious, and wonderful. We had included and few extra special tours of Venice, Split, Dubrovnik, Kotor, Corfu, and Olympia. The food on the ship was fantastic.There were great and uncrowded hot tubs, pools, and infinity pool. There was some nice entertainment and great bars throughout the ship. The food was very nice with two great specialty restaurants (included), a formal restaurant, and a buffet restaurant for breakfast and lunch. Obviously we put on weight even with the walking tours!
Finally we had a fantastic extension in Athens with a tour of the acropolis and museum and then tours of the Pelopenese and Delphi. Great included lunches and time on our own for great dinners in Athens. Viking handled the transfers very well and smoothly picked us up at the Florence airport and dropped us off at thee Athens airport.
Somehow both of our Viking Ocean cruises have been the inaugural trip for each ship. Both went very smoothly.
