Good cruise, but Viking Sun doesn't warrant a high rating.

Viking Sun Cruise Review by coralfriend

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Dec 2018
  • Destination: the Western Mediterranean
  • Cabin Type: undefined

Western Mediterranean Cruise, 12 nights. Traveling solo.

Rome to Lisbon

Shore excursions were very good. Guides knew their subject matter.

Viking Sun staff needs to recognize and treat solo passengers the same as other passengers. Except for one experience, dining staff were negligent and offhand to me as a solo passenger. At one dinner I was literally taken to the last table in the dining room, past all the other empty tables (I was early).

I asked what was wrong with those tables. I was told they were for "the other passengers". Obviously I did not take that table. And I won't be cruising with Viking again.

Generally recommended Mediterranean ports, eastern and western:

Rome - a great walkable city

Florence - spend time in the museums

Valencia - very pretty

Greek Islands - any of them, all beautiful

Istanbul - see the Blue Mosque

Malaga - see the Moorish architecture
