Viking Sun Cruise Review by cmlconrad

  • Destination: the Baltic Sea

We chose this cruise because of the itinerary and the cruise line. We have traveled on Viking River cruises but not their ocean line. We did the pre-extension in Iceland and then flew to Bergen, Norway to board the ship.

The ship is beautiful. All of the crew were wonderful and helpful. Even though there were 900 guests on board, it was not crowded and just a fantastic experience. The cabin, which was a Verandah on the 6th floor, was perfectly planned. Lots of storage and easy to move around in.

There were two, no reservation dining areas, and two reservation dining rooms. We chose to eat in the areas that did not require reservations. The staff was great and the food was plentiful and wonderful.

We did a shore excursion in every port as we wanted to experience as much as we could. We truly enjoyed the ones out in the countryside versus the ones in the city. It was great that they offered excursions for folks with mobility issues as we met wonderful people that could not go on many of the excursions we went on but thoroughly enjoyed the simpler tours.
