We chose the ship's fabulous food almost every time! The only exceptions were a lunch in Denmark and one in Sweden as we met friends who lived in each.

Kiel Canal Transit

Large cruise ships cannot take advantage of this canal. The Viking Sun fit like a glove!

Hamburg, Germany

We enjoyed the included excursion. Also opted for the evening cruise that included the lovely concert and water show in Planten un Blomen.

Amsterdam, Netherlands

5 out of 5
We enjoyed the included excursion. 2 days are not enough, especially with the 2nd day filled with getting to the airport. (Thank goodness me and m'lady have both visited Amsterdam previously.)
