Viking Sky Cruise Review by Grandpargus2

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Aug 2019
  • Destination: the Baltic Sea

The Viking Homelands cruise was selceted based upon the itinerary and especially the end point of the cruise-Stockholm. This cruise was perfect perfect in all respects and everything went like clock work. Embarkation was quick and most efficient. The ship was immaculate in all respects.- minimalist in design and very Scandinavian decor. Ample space on this vessel for a place to seek out a quite place to enjoy the cruise. Sure nice NOT to have children, casinos and bingos.

As for the food-plenty of choices and the 3 speciality restaurants. Really enjoyed The Chef's Table with their speciality themed menus. As for the food served on board-we were very astounded with the selections, and quality of the food. Far beyond our expections. Staff always made sure everyone was very pleased.

Granted the entertainment on board was not your broadway show productions, however, Viking has very talented musicians on staff and they provided very enjoyable programs.

Shore excursions always went off without issues. Viking provides excursions that will appeal to almost everyone and we were not disappointed.

All in all, this was a most famous cruise and would sail with Viking Ocean again. The only question is which cruise to select.
