Getting a chance to visit the Cavern Club in Liverpool was almost a dream c

We were invited on this cruise by relatives. We had never sailed with Viking before. We had read that ocean cruising was a somewhat new endeavor for Viking, so being experienced ocean cruisers, we thought that we would check them out. Boy, are we glad that we did!

The Sun is a beautiful ship! She's nearly brand new, and was a joy so sail on. It was a real gas to meet her, anchored in the Thames River at Greenwich. We also enjoyed our day in Greenwich exploring before we set sail.

The experiences that we had while cruising the British Isles were amazing! We saw many wonderful things and met many genuine and kind people along the way! The daily excursion provided by Viking was educational informative. We are walkers, so enjoyed leaving the ship in each port and walking around to see what we could see. The port location was well thought out, and a shuttle to nearby sights was readily available if needed.

Cabin Review

All cabins are balcony cabins. Very roomy! The bathroom was amazing! The closet location was awkward, but we made do with it.
