1-8 of 8 Rome (Civitavecchia) to Europe Viking Ocean Zhao Shang Yi Dun (Viking Sun) Cruise Reviews


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 same as other passengers. Except for one experience, dining staff were negligent and offhand to me as a solo passenger. At one dinner I was literally taken to the last table in the ...

First time on an Ocean Cruise...we are In our 60's and did not want to be on a cruise the size of a city. Viking is the best way to start and or finish. Will only take Viking as it is the BEST!!! Future booking are inevitable. We want to sail the world with Viking!!! All of the excursions were so informative and thought/organized so well. On board entertainment nightly and the bar service ...

Everything about this cruise was top notch. The itinerary and ports of call were cities/areas that we wanted to visit. Beginning in Rome and ending in Lisbon was fabulous....what could be better! The shore excursions were well planned and all of our guides were very knowledgeable, friendly, articulate and engaging. Our ship, the Viking Sun, was beautiful and meticulously cleaned and maintained and ...

We chose this Mediterranean cruise because it offered 11 ort stops counting Rome. Unfortunately we missed one, Marseille, due to stormy weather. We experienced amazingly good weather except for that one overnight. This new ship is totally awesome, and perfect in every way. Lots of comfortable area, indoors and out, to sit and relax. The cabin was perfectly laid out with plenty of closet space, ...

We've cruised on two Viking River Cruises and loved them. We wanted to experience one of Viking's Ocean Cruises. It was above and beyond what we expected! The first night, we worked closely with the Shore Excursion Team in order to make reservations to see Michelangelo's David in Florence. She bent over backwards to try to get us tickets. Thereafter, every time we saw her, she remembered us ...

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 bar service attendants any time passengers are on board and the ship is moving. The volume in the theater should be increased for movies and presentations. Repeat the presentations for ...

This was our third cruise with Viking Ocean and it was on their newly launched Viking Sun. The cruise stopped at interesting ports and we hit a sale that worked for our budget. We have always experienced excellent and friendly service from the crews and their embarkation, disembarkation and shore excursion procedures are well managed and punctual. We used the "Roll Call" to connect with some ...

We had been wanting to do a Mediterranean cruise and this Itinerary came available on short notice. (We don't like planning 18 months ahead to take a cruise) We have travelled before with Viking and knew the level of excellence to expect. The food choices were wonderful. Lots of seafood. Also several specialty eating places. We were in a port everyday which did not allow us to enjoy all ...
