  3. Viking Sun
We had taken a "Baltic cruise" in 2008 (on Princess cruise line) but wanted an opportunity to enjoy Norway prior to repeating a visit to the northern capitals. We are not disappointed at all, partly due to the smaller size of the boat (900), but also we did the pre-tour in Norway. We had the opportunity to revisit Oslo and particularly enjoyed the Vigelandparken. We then boarded a train to cross Norway to Bergen for a further 2 days. Also we had an opportunity to enjoy fjords, and other Norwegian ports prior to heading for the Baltic. The weather was excellent, with calm seas, warm temperatures and sunny days. The included short excursions were excellent. And the Viking hospitality on board was amazing as usual. The food was exceptional with highlights of reindeer, and tuna. We met with the chef who was Canadian and clearly thoughtful about portions size, and low-fat/sugar diets. We asked for low-fat yoghurt and it was delivered at the next port! This was our first trip on the Ocean cruise liner, and while excellent for certain destinations like this cruise, we still like the river cruises for most of our travels. We have enjoyed them previously with Viking in Egypt, Amsterdam to Budapest, and the Duore River. All highly recommended.

Another fine Viking Vacation experience

Ample space, well stocked frig (daily). Lots of closet space and large bathroom.

Room stewards were attentive and thoughtful. Utilized on-board laundry and drycleaning service. Very good value.
