  3. Viking Sea
We had heard so much about Viking that we decided to give cruising a try. We did the Homeland Baltic Ocean Cruise. We loved the smaller ship size, the always friendly and always efficient crew, the attention to detail. We are seniors, and we appreciated the fact that there were no children onboard. Also we were so pleased with the shore excursions offered, the onboard spa services and the restaurants, which were uniformly splendid. We really didn’t take in much of the evening entertainment. It just didn’t interest us. We did enjoy some of the lectures and TED talks. We wish we had more time in some of the ports and there was one (Berlin) we would have happily skipped. Our cabin—we booked a Penthouse Junior Suite—was beautiful and so comfortable and our steward treated us as if we owned the cruise line. We enjoyed our first cruise so much that we’ve booked a second—this time a Viking river cruise.

Our first cruise—but not our last

Cabin Review

Cabin 8801
The cabin was spacious and comfortable. The bathroom was splendid. Our steward was spectacular—anticipated every need and responded quickly to every request.
