Viking Sun Cruise Review by Tilly91

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Dec 2018
  • Destination: Transatlantic

PROS:

We picked this cruise for the length and itinerary--Rome to Miami 24 days. Iincluded tours in most locations were very good. The sea days were much appreciated after spending 14 days on a port a day.

Getting on the ship was a breeze.

The Sun is mostly identical to the Sky which we had been on in June, just newer. Very clean and well appointed.

The Chef's Table had the best food.

CONS:

The included tours in Barcelona and Lisbon were a waste of time. Having been to both locations previously, we skipped out on both tours midway through and did our own thing. These could have been much better

The exercise classes were very disappointing in selection and length. And the evening entertainment was hit and miss.

Enrichment talks were often scheduled at the start of dinner. If you went to that, you would eat late and miss the entertainment.

Getting off the ship in Miami was a nightmare--very disorganized and lack of communication. They kept reminding people to vacate their rooms but we couldn't leave the ship. And the people who were on their own (no flights, etc) were grouped to leave the ship first--just a bad end.
