1-10 of 7 San Juan to the Caribbean Viking Ocean Viking Sun Cruise Reviews
We chose this trip solely for its itinerary (specifically, Amazon, Rio and Buenos Aires) which has proven to be quite exciting.
The ship exceeded our expectations (this was our first sail on Viking after cruising with Sliversea, Oceania, Celebrity and others).
Viking Sun is a beautifully appointed ship with exemplary design (it is also very new: delivered on 25 September 2017). Plenty of ...
The embarkation was excellent, plenty of staff to check in all the guest with very little waiting time.

The food, as usual was outstanding as was all the dining room wait staff including the hostess who remembered our names and ...

The stewards ...
Travelling to the Amazon and visiting Rio were the reasons for choosing this trip. The Included trips were good but the additional excursions were excellent. The submarine ride in Barbados was a o e in a lifetime experience. On board, we both enjoyed the lecture series. We learned so much about the people,history, and politics of each country we visited. It made the shore excursions so much more ...
Selected this cruise because of the Amazon content. We normally do not select a cruise with this many sea days and unfortunately extra sea day was added due to water conditions that forced us to miss a port (Recife).
