Though the Viking Excursion Bible suggests we buy tikis and other Marquesas handicrafts while we’re onshore tomorrow, at yesterday’s what-to-expect ‘Port Talk’ we were begged not to bring tikis on board. Seems the wood may contain pine beetles, which love teak. And guess what the Sun’s decks are made of?
Cruise Director Heather said: ‘If you must have one, wait till you get home. Tell everyone you bought it in the South Pacific. But, please — order it from Amazon.’
Obviously, the Viking Sun is con tiki.
