First Sun Transatlantic Crossing Nov 2017

Viking Sun Cruise Review by spencer8

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Nov 2017
  • Destination: Transatlantic

We were returning from a driving tour of Scandinavia. The timing of the cruise met our needs. Viking River Cruise experienced; looking forward to a Viking ship.

The Viking Sun is a first class experience. Right sized. Lots of space.

Area for improvement- on board booking for future sailings. After an informative one hour overview, only one representative on board, was insufficient. No email contact. Response to a hand written inquiry on a 2018 cruise from Tokyo to Vancouver was via a voicemail to our Cabin. No return voicemail available.

We were advised we were ‘wait listed’. Would receive no on ship booking incentives.

Oh well.

That said...

The overall facilities are fantastic. The Crew was well educated with experience on Regent and Celebrity where we had sailed. We continually thanked the Crew for their ever present smiles and thoughtfulness.

Looking forward to our next Viking Salinger experience. Alaska? Asia?

A $10 public bus ferry pass

After five days at sea quite the let down.

Regent provided much more selection
