Viking Sun Cruise Review by highcotton
- Sail Date: October 2019
- Destination: Caribbean
The ship was beautiful. Understated elegance, I would say. With only 900 passengers, we liked the smaller, more intimate atmosphere. Our fellow cruisers were mostly over 60, and no one under 18. A plus for us.
Our stateroom (a deluxe veranda) was big enough, and very comfortable. The bathroom was amazing. Room enough for two to use the mirror at the same time and the shower had a door ( no fighting that curtain) and was very spacious.
The dining room was open from 6 to 9 each night, with no assigned seating or time, which added to the generally relaxed atmosphere. We never had to wait for a table and joined others each night. The included specialty restaurants were excellent, especially Manfredi's, the Italian one. The food everywhere, in the restaurants, the poolside bar, the World Cafe buffet, was much better that we have had on any other ship
We caught a few shows, and enjoyed them. There were good musicians aboard, a pianist, a guitarist and a violin and cello duo that would provide really good music in various areas. There were interesting and very informative port talks each evening covering the next day's destination.
Without exception, every member of the staff was friendly and helpful. And more than likely would call us by name.
Each port had an included excursion. Each one gave us a taste of the country we were visiting, and every one gave us a taste of their rum punch!
The Spa has to be seen to believe. There is everything needed, or wanted, to spend a relaxing time, even a Snow Grotto. Also, there is a well equipped gym.
Debarkation was orderly and quick.
This cruise has sold us completely on Viking. We will sail with them again
