Viking Sky Cruise Review by Bluffton Gal
- Sail Date: September 2018
- Destination: Baltic Sea
If you're looking for quiet entertainment, Viking Ocean is for you. You could always find a secluded place to curl up and take in the world if that's your choice.
There were many included excursions and we opted to use Viator for others. We used Viator in St. Petersburg, Russia and Berlin, Germany and we were not disappointed. Don't be afraid to save money and use an outside company vs. Viking as long as they guarantee that you'll get back to the ship. We should have gone with the complimentary Viking train trip in Berlin and taken an independent tour upon arrival in Berlin as it was a several hour car ride to Berlin however we couldn't find anyone who could give us info either way. We're now telling you that the Viking train trip is good and take a tour when you get off the train in Berlin.
There is no casino or children under 18. There were a few comedy shows and nightly entertainment. Always music somewhere whether it be a string quartet or piano, The median age appeared to be 60-80.
We highly recommend Viking however, it was a bit more money compared to other comparable cruises example Holland America and Oceania.

Mount FloyenCute city - enjoyed the sights, sounds, food and wine. We took the extra train trip to Oslo. Probably would not take the train trip again. Did not feel that it was worth the money.View All 38 Mount Floyen Reviews
CopenhagenViking provided a walking tour along the canal into Copenhagen where we left the group and toured on our own. We stopped along the canal and had a glass of wine and took in the sights then walked back to the ship. It's my "happy place".View All 1,013 Copenhagen Cruise Port Reviews

BerlinWe booked a private tour with another couple. The were picked up at the ship by a driver and car ride was 2 hours. Our guide met us in Berlin and we drove around to see the sights that we wanted to see. Having a private car in Berlin was great as we drove right up to the attractions. Having to do it again, we most likely would have taken the Viking train trip into Berlin and booked a private tour car from there. There were no reviews that we could compare.View All 65 Berlin Reviews
Private TourWe booked a 2 day private tour and shared the cost with another couple. We were picked up in a Mercedes van both days. Our tour guide was very informative and we geared our tour to the sights we wanted to see which included all of the major attractions. We didn't feel that we missed anything. We were back to the ship with plenty of time to spare. In speaking with other passengers, we felt that we saved a great deal of money and received the same, if not better tour with Viator for half the cost as our tour was private and geared to what we wanted to see.View All 174 Private Tour Reviews
