Sail Date: Aug 2019

We just returned from our latest Viking Cruise – The Viking Homelands aboard the Viking Sea. I’m just going to hit the highlights if anyone has specific questions please contact me and I will do my best to answer…. If I know the answer of course!

If you want to read no further then here is the short of it…. This was the best overall cruise experience we have yet experienced on the cleanest, most comfortable (overall) and well run ship we have sailed upon. There! I said it! Now if you want the “long of it” please carry on :-)

The Itinerary

Cabin Review

Cabin Deluxe Veranda

Our 270 square foot (including Veranda) cabin was a “Deluxe Veranda Stateroom”. The “Deluxe Veranda” is basically the same as the “Veranda Stateroom” just better positioned and with a couple of more “Perks”. Other cabins range from the 270 sq ft Veranda and Deluxe Veranda to the 338 sq ft Penthouse Veranda all the way up to the 1448 sq ft Owner’s Suite (the likes of which I’m sure I will never see :-)

It was spotless, well appointed, and fairly spacious. The King-Sized bed was comfortable with the high-quality linens fresh smelling and clean. Two chairs and a coffee table with a desk/vanity area opposite completed the cabins small sitting area.

The closet and storage around the cabin was adequate for our two week voyage.

The bathroom was fine, if a bit cramped, with a good shower, single vanity sink and plenty of room for all of our toiletries.

There were adequate AC outlets in both US and Euro styles with a few extra USB charging outlets in the small desk area.

The 42” TV was of a decent size but with very limited volume.

The small, teak floored, veranda contained two chairs (not loungers) and a small table and was of a comfortable size.

We were introduced to our steward who made us feel right at home explaining the features of the stateroom before moving on to his next guests.

For cleanliness and thoughtfulness of design our cabin gets an “A+” with spaciousness coming in at a solid “B”.

Port Reviews


Very Senic and a good overall exposure to Bergen.


Beautiful small city on the Fjord. A great jumping off place for other tours pithing bussing distance.


Good walking tour.


Lovely city. Laid back and very accessible by foot.


mostly a walking tour, informative and not terribly crowded.

Gdansk (Warsaw)

Neat place.... too crowded in the main streets. Did not enjoy the stop at the Amber Shop....


Loved Tallinn. Had a great laid back sort of vibe.


Loved the cruise into Stockholm... Amazing! The city tour was good but again a bit lacking in substance.
