Viking Sun Cruise Review by mpc2985

  • Destination: the Mediterranean

Everything about this cruise was top notch. The itinerary and ports of call were cities/areas that we wanted to visit. Beginning in Rome and ending in Lisbon was fabulous....what could be better! The shore excursions were well planned and all of our guides were very knowledgeable, friendly, articulate and engaging. Our ship, the Viking Sun, was beautiful and meticulously cleaned and maintained and our cabin was perfect in size and amenities. Dining options were plentiful and the food was delicious. We especially enjoyed Manfredi's! The Chef's Table, The Restaurant and the buffet in the World café was excellent as well. Service on board was superb.....from our cabin stewards to wait staff all were very personable and made our voyage very enjoyable. The Viking Classical Trio, resident pianist Grego and resident guitarist Laszlo presented beautiful music in the atrium. Port talks were very informative and gave us insights into our next port of call. We will definitely book another ocean cruise with Viking.

We actually took the tour "Highlights of Marseille" which was excellent. And we're so glad we did as the ship had to bypass our stop in Marseille. The tour was superb...this city can't be missed!! Toulon itself is very small and the tour really was not as good as any of the other tours offered on the cruise

Monte Carlo Walking Tour

Very interesting walking tour. Guide personable and knowledgeable.

Our guide Philipe was very good.....nice tour of the city

Cartagena (Spain)

We took 2 tours in Cartagena, the "Ancient Roman City" and "Cartagena Foundations Walking Tour". Unfortunately for us there was quite a bit of overlap in these tours. That said the guides were wonderful and knowledgeable and made out time in the city enjoyable.

Malaga City Tour

Our guide Victor was one of the best! He was so engaging and gave us many insights into the ever changing city.
