Viking Sun Cruise Review by Bashfulbarb

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Nov 2018
  • Destination: the Mediterranean

We like Viking because when we check out at the end of the cruise we don't have a huge bill to pay for wine, sodas, bottled water, spa, laundry and shore excursions.

The ship is light and bright and cheery. We'll layed out and functional.

All cabins have a balcony and a shower instead of a bathtub... which we prefer.

There is a laundry room on each level and soap and fabric softener is included and the machines are free.

My only complaint is not being able to make reservations for the regular dining room. We have found it not as well organized as the Table and Manfreds.

No one under 18 is allowed on the cruise. So adults can actually use the pool.

Also the pre and post additions to the Viking cruises are very organized and well run.

Otherwise everything is done well on the Viking cruises we have been on. We already have 3 more cruises book with Viking in the next 2 years.

Cabin Review

Cabin Penthouse Veranda 5088

Cabins are well thought out and functional. Showers instead of bathtub. We found the Penthouse cabin to have a better closet layout than the basic Veranda. There is a fridge in the cabin stocked with 6 sodas and a few snacks that are refilled every day.

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews

Olympia Archeological Tour

Very nice. Not as difficult walk except for a few fellow cruisers with walkers who had trouble navigating the grounds.

Would have liked a gondola driver who would have talked about what we were seeing.
