Viking Sun Cruise Review by Larry Tolin

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Aug 2019
  • Destination: Europe

To supplement the Inaugural World Cruise.

There still is too little emphasis on preventing the spread of colds and respiratory diseases: Very little sanitation of exercise equipment in fitness area (need signs IN front of each pieces of equipment, not the dinky signs too small to read and need staff enforcing wiping down equipment and the 20-minute use limit), very little enforcement at the World Café to wash and sanitize hands as people enter, no emphasis about not going to theater coughing and hacking (stay in staterooms when sick), etc. My wife and I were sick from those with coughs and sneezing for three months during the Inaugural Cruise so we came better prepared with OTC meds on World Treasures.

The Theater design prevents a large percentage (33?) of people to see the stage because the swivel chair rows, being higher than bench seats, limits vision. When the front row of swivel chairs were moved back and squeezed into other rows of chairs it made it so tight that when chairs were swiveled they would knock drinks off the tables.

We were very disappointed this cruise was not exclusive for 4 and 8 month travelers. We had to retrain six to seven hundred "Hop-on Hop-off' passengers for each segment. There sorely needs to be a required orientation to cover the items above (plus many more as use of QV) for each new set of arriving travelers, just as there is a mandatory life boat drill.

There were seven segments on the World Treasures cruise. We had the same songs and music for all seven segments by the Viking singers, who both groups were great, so we did not get our entertainment moneys worth. There needs to be a change of songs for each segment whether or not it's the World Treasures cruise.

We are signed up for more Viking cruises; the comments above are indicating where improvements could be made.
