Viking Sky Cruise Review by AnnTurner

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Aug 2018
  • Destination: the Baltic Sea
  • Cabin Type: undefined

We were interested in the ports in the itinerary (several in Noreay, Denmark, Germany, Poland, St. Petersburg Russia, Estonia, and Sweden) and we had gotten a great recommendation from friends on the quality of the Viking Ocean cruises. We particularly enjoyed the several stops in Norway. Other highlights: Helsinki was lovely. We visited the Stutthof Concentration Camp near Gdańsk, Poland. St. Petersburg was absolutely amazing. Excursions were well run, and the local guides were terrific. We enjoyed dining options aboard the ship, none with an extra cost. There is 24 hour room service available, also at no charge. Free internet worked well throughout the ship. Viking also provides free internet to the crew, unlike other cruise lines, which allows them to stay in touch with family during time away from home. The crew were all terrific, and provided a high level of service. Common areas were expansive and never crowded. We enjoyed our trip so much that we have booked another Viking cruise for next year.

Cabin Review

Everything about our cabin was great except the clothing storage. There is a large closet but a few more drawers and/or shelves would be very helpful.

Bergen is a beautiful walking town. Learned much about the Hanseatic League


Lovely to see the fjords and natural beauty of Noway

Pulpit Rock

Tour through the fjords on a smaller boat. Stavanger is a thriving town with beautiful shops.

Rostock City Tour

We didn’t choose Berlin because we have been there recently. This tour took us to two smaller towns, where damage from WWII is still evident.

Stockholm is a beautiful city built across many islands. We had previously visited there.


We were greeted by Danes playing music and waving flags at the dock. Interesting walking tour.

One of the most moving tours of our trip. Not to be missed.

Catherine Palace

One could spend many days visiting St. Petersburg. We enjoyed the tours we chose. On par with the beauty of Versailles. The grounds are also extensive and beautiful.

Church of the Savior on Spilled Blood

Stunning church built on the site of the assassination of Alexander II. The art work and architectural details are glorious.

Hermitage Museum

One could spend many days visiting St. Petersburg. We enjoyed the tours we chose. Our guide at the Hermitage, which is enormous, was adept moving us through the museum to be sure we saw a wide variety of important pieces. Our tour was scheduled early which is important for avoiding crowds.
