As a reasonably well travelled couple around mainland Europe we were looking forward to travelling a little further afield and so chose The Viking Homelands cruise whilst on our second river cruise with them. From the minute of booking to coming home everything was superbly handled by all the Viking staff we had dealings with. The Viking Sky herself did not disappoint,I can find nothing about it to complain about.It was furnished exactly to our style being modern and elegant without being 'flashy' or too simple.Even on sea days it did not seem crowded. We got to meet several like minded fellow passengers who we would bump into again and again as the cruise progressed.Passengers seemed to be mostly from the US but there were also a fair number of Canadians and Australians.We only came across six other Brits. The main restaurant on deck 2 is the best place we found to meet new people and also The Living Room in The Atrium.(especially around the jig saw puzzle table on level 2.) All the staff seem very happy to be on the ship,it shows on their faces and they always greet you with a smile and say hello. Our favourite place on board was the upper level of the Explorers Lounge closely followed by the comfy loungers facing outwards with sea views in the area at the side of the main pool. The sad faces and fond farewells on disembarkation morning said it all. No one wanted to leave.We cannot wait to sail again and actually rebooked for next year whilst still on board (Australia and New Zealand) Many wonderful memories to savour over the coming winter months . Watching the sun rise and set over the ocean everyday is sadly missed at the moment in my land locked home location. Thank you Viking for yet another special holiday.

Simply the best
