          Royal Viking Sun on the cover of "Voyages: The Romance of Cruising". This book with photos by Harvey LLoyd - noted photographer for Royal Viking Line - features a number of beautfiul shots of Royal Viking Line vessels mainly the Sun, but also the Queen and even the Star.

            I so agree with you: the Royal Viking Sun was a evry elegant ship, and Royal Viking Line created some of the best luxury brochures of the time (now and then). You need only take a quick look at a RV advertisement and see that this is the best you could get in luxury - even today, so many years after the demise of Royal Viking Line.

            What Holland America Line did to her stern is nothing but a rape of her beautiful curved lines. They have effectively destroyed the aft look and terraced decks of the ship. it hurts my heart to see her like this, I have wonderful memories from this ship, she is probably one of the most elegant vessels to come out in more recent times.

              A great Royal Viking Sun promotional video.... ah, this brings back a lot of memories, and that song... it's etched into my mind from my own time on her.

                            Hugely appreciate that you have taken the time to prepare and post those Royal Viking photos (that’s ALL of them, not only the blue-eyed boy of #54/1 and my favourite #55/2!)
