Viking Sun Cruise Review by Rothlein

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Oct 2017
  • Destination: the Mediterranean

We've cruised on two Viking River Cruises and loved them. We wanted to experience one of Viking's Ocean Cruises. It was above and beyond what we expected! The first night, we worked closely with the Shore Excursion Team in order to make reservations to see Michelangelo's David in Florence. She bent over backwards to try to get us tickets. Thereafter, every time we saw her, she remembered us and called us by name. Very nice.

Very professional. The food was incredible. Wait staff was incredible! LOVED the Italian Dining Room. On our next Viking Ocean Cruise, we'll make multiple reservations to go there!. Our Cabin Steward, Komang, was extraordinary. Very attentive to our every need. Very friendly and courteous. A couple of the shore excursions were just meh. The majority of them were outstanding! The Viking Travel Concierge was excellent. We talked to her on multiple occasions in order to make reservations on the Miami to Los Angeles (via the Panama Canal) Cruise. She was very helpful to us in making our reservation! YEA! We cannot wait to go on a Viking Ocean Cruise again!

Cabin Review

Cabin Unknown 3035

The majority of our fellow cruisers were senior citizens. Seniors aren't too bendy. To have the access to the closet located behind the nightstand was very, very inconvenient. We couldn't reach things on the floor (like shoes) without performing acrobatics! Very poor design to have the access to the closet located behind the nightstand. The next time we travel on a Viking Ocean Cruise, I'll have the nightstand removed from the room and do without the convenience of having somewhere to store my personal items.

Mini Van tour of the city

We didn't get to go to Marseille. The weather wouldn't allow the ship to dock. So, even thought we signed up for the Mini Van Tour of the city, we didn't get to go. Sad....

Wow! What a fun tour. The guide was excellent. Very helpful when we wanted to venture out on our own to pick up something. Gave lots of excellent hints and tips.

Cartagena (Spain)

Excellent guide! Who knew there had been a whole ancient city buried under the town?! She was very knowledgeable and knew so much about the surrounding area. Very interesting tour!

Malaga City Tour

The guide was excellent! Provided so much information. Waited for us to use the (very limited number of them) restroom. Very knowledgeable. Fun-loving, too!

Not what we thought it was going to be. We thought we signed up of a tour of Seville, instead we saw Cordoba. It was just sort of MEH.....

Didn't care for the guide. The best part of the tour was the stop where we got Belem Lisbon Pastries! YUM!
