A number of our group had been on a Viking river cruise and had enjoyed it so much they recommended we do the Viking Homelands (Baltic) Cruise. A great suggestion and choice for 16 friends.
As our first cruise this cruise turned out to be beyond expectation and an unforgettable experience.
The service, amenities and shore excursions were excellent. The food was amazing and the Viking entertainment top class. We were treated like VIPs during the duration of the cruise. The state room we had on deck three was very well appointed and extremely comfortable.
The ports and countries visited were really well chosen and we thoroughly enjoyed our visits to each one. The trip to Berlin with the Viking train was amazing and on returning we experienced a poolside party and entertainment. The ship also put on a Sunday brunch which again was a culinary experience. There were many memories with the splendour of St. Petersburg, magical Bergen and Eidfjord in Norway, just to mention but a few.
Thank you to the Captain and crew of the Viking Sky. In naval terms a very well run ship.
As a result of our first Viking experience, we have booked our Oberammergau 2020 River Cruise and a 2021, 21 day Mediterranean Cruise, with Viking.
The cabin was very well appointed, comfortable and came with an outside balcony, which we used. Our stewards were extremely friendly and offered us excellent service and attention. On returning to our cabin each evening our bed had been turned downed with a new daily Viking news, detailing the following days events and excursions.
