This was on my husband's "bucket list". We looked at quite a few Baltic cruises and chose the Homelands over other ships to try out Viking Ocean and were not disappointed. There are so many complimentary amenities on Viking depending on your suite category. 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.

Cabin Review

Cabin 7002
The cabin was excellent! One of the finest that we have stayed. Alcohol, beer, wine, soda and water is complimentary and replenished daily. There is a curtain that separates the bedroom area from the living room area with 2 TV's. Gives a bit of privacy to one who may chose to nap or sleep in. The balcony is large and if you're traveling with another couple, you may open the divider between the 2 balconies. The bathroom floors are heated and the bathroom is more than ample. The only drawback that I can see if that, for a gal, you need to either bring a long extension cord to do do your hair in the bathroom or stand at the mirror in the bedroom area to get ready. They could also use a bit more lighting in the bedroom area for the woman to do her hair. Closet and drawer space was more than adequate.
