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

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 ...

Ups and Downs

Exquisite in every way

The Viking Sun is an absolutely gorgeous ship, furnished with Norwegian taste which is sleek and elegant in nautical blue and silver-beige. The public spaces are large and comfortable and beautiful, and don't seem ...

In-Depth Excursions

Off Season Mediterranean

The cruise is advertised as off season which is great. The weather is still good and the crowds are significantly smaller. Only disadvantage is shorter daylight hours. It is a very busy cruise with no sea days and ...

Great cruise with some “glitches”

We enjoy cruising with Viking. They are first class and do not “nickel and dime” you. The service is excellent and the crew is very good. Everyone working on the ship is friendly and says hello with a smile. ...

Intermittent Sewer Odor in Cabin 8017

We have been Viking fans for many years but this was our first sailing on the Sun. Our biggest issue was intermittent sewer odors coming through the ventilation system (not from the bathroom area). Although ...

Mediocre Food on Deck 7

The ship itself is great. Need more visible overhead hallway signage for elevators and, more importantly, REST ROOMS as these are impossible to find unless you are standing right in front of them. Need more overall ...
