Sail Date: Sep 2018

We had long wanted to visit many of the ports included in the Viking Homelands experience, but have, previously, planned our own travel trying to avoid anywhere with a ship in port! However, the prospect of smaller numbers and all-inclusive travel appealed, and we thoroughly enjoyed our first cruise experience!

We cannot speak highly enough of the service we received! Embarkation was a breeze, the cabin every bit as lovely as the brochures promised, and the Sun itself is a work of art! Food was outstanding and the entertainment first class, whether in the public areas or theatre! We danced every night at Torshavn till they kicked us out!!! Travelling with another couple added enjoyment (we Aussies swept all before us at trivia!!) but we often went our own ways when in port and made many new friends.

Unfortunately we lost two ports (and gained extra sea days) due to the weather, but this actually gave us more time to relax after busy times ashore.

Cabin Review

Cabin Penthouse verandah

Such a delightful place to call home for a fortnight! Bed was very comfortable (pillows too) and the decor stylish and uncluttered! Very glad we booked the Penthouse Verandah; we appreciated the extra roominess as well as the ironing service and minibar inclusions! There was so much storage space and the ports slid under the bed.

The bathroom was lovely, with heated floors and indulgent bath products. Robes and slippers too!

Water and ice were regularly replaced and the wonderful 'house elves' unobtrusively kept the room looking as if we'd just arrived!
