Viking Sun Baltic and Scandinavian Cruise

Viking Sun Cruise Review by kenthescrivener

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Jun 2018
  • Destination: the Baltic Sea

It was part of a special Viking promotion. The ship, itself, was excellent and the service was excellent. The Restaurant meals were excellent and the waitstaff was efficient and friendly. We were disappointed in some of the included shore excursions as we felt as if we had not gained a sense of the city. The exceptions to that were Oslo, Norway, where we had an outstanding tour guide and Hamburg, Germany, where we had more time to get a feel for the place. The visit to Skagen, Denmark, was good, although our tour guide didn't give us a chance to stop and take in individual sites. But it was a beautiful little city with friendly people and interesting shops. It would have been good to drop one of the Danish stops and add a Norwegian stop. If we were going to take the cruise again, I think I would sign up for some of the optional tours to get a better sense of the towns.

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews


We arrived late so we didn't have a chance to take the tour.


We had a good guide, but we didn't get a good sense of the city


The town is interesting. Our guide was inexperienced as Skagen was a new stop for Viking.


We didn't really get a chance to see much of the city, and the tour bus raced through areas that might have been interesting. Our ride out into the country gave us a nice look at surrounding farmland.

This gave us a good, though, brief sense of what Hamburg was like. We enjoyed our walk from the ship to the modern philharmonic hall and breakfast in town with local friends.

We had a very short time in Amsterdam. We had visited a number of the museums on a trip to Amsterdam the previous year, so we didn't feel cheated.

We saw some areas we hadn't seen on a previous visit. Watch out for bicyclesT!
