  3. Viking Sun
Our first opportunity to cruise with Viking. Loved it. Will be looking to cruise Viking again. This cruise had 2 days in our departure port of Venice, Split, Dubrovnik, Kotor, Corfu, port for Olympia and disembark in Athens. Really enjoyed the stops at Split, Dubrovnik, Kotor and Corfu. This cruise fit perfectly with a marathon tour group that my wife and I continued on with after our arrival in Athens. We stayed another beautiful 8 days in Greece, as my wife and I ran the Athens marathon and 5K races. The Viking Sun is a beautiful ship. All six of Viking's ships are virtually the same; 975 passengers, Great food, Excellent dinning room and two Specialty dinning rooms. Every cabin is spacious and has a balcony. Wine and beer with your meals are included. Each deck has a very nice laundry room, which is free. Excellent spa, fitness center, sauna and even a snow room. There are places to sit and relax everywhere on this ship - never crowded. Superb service. Best of all, Viking offers a free excursion at every port. We had several very knowledgeable guides..

  • Walking the Walls
    We went by motorcoach to old town for an afternoon walking tour, which was nice, but we broke away from the group early and road the cable car up the mountain for a great view of Old Town. Earlier, we took the earliest bus to Old Town and did the entire Wall Walk. It was amazing sights and views. Beautiful weather and small crowds in early November.

  • Walking Tour
    Excellent walking tour of this small walled city. Quaint churches museums shops and restaurants. But taking the hike up the mountain to the small church and fort was well worth the effort for beautiful views. Loved Kotor.

  • Venice Walking Tour
    High water in St Marks square during our ships walking tour was bit of a bummer. Forcing everyone to the raised sidewalks and making it crowded on a not so busy day.
