Sail Date: Jun 2018

We selected this Viking Ocean Cruise due to its extended Homelands Itinerary. Other lines do many of the same ports, but they don't do them all in one shot the way Viking does. We have done multiple River Cruises with Viking, so we were not apprehensive about trying the Ocean Cruising side with the company. Overall it was very good, albeit pricey. So, when comparing this itinerary to other lines, you get more ports, included and quality excursions, included wine and beer, and exceptional service. That being said, we have done other lines cruising Europe, and will continue to do so keeping an open mind. Viking is very good, but we have had just as much fun and enjoyment on those other lines. We primarily select a line for a unique itinerary, after that, if itineraries are same, we compare cost, value and quality. Viking is a more subdued experience with an older demographic. We are on the early age-side of their demographic, so sometimes we want more excitement, loud music, and some younger folks around us freely enjoying themselves rather than reading on a quiet deck with sipping a glass of something.
