I chose the Viking Homelands Cruise, because Scandinavia was on my bucket list and I was impressed with Viking's ocean ships. I knew Viking's quality from 4 river cruises. The Jupiter is an amazingly beautiful vessel. Our cabin had amply storage and I enjoyed the balcony. The entire staff was outstanding. Onboard talent was impressive. We especially enjoyed the Elvis night.
Food selections were excellent. Our only disappointment was that we could not get an additional reservation for Manifreds.
We enjoyed the Explorer's Lounge each evening - very good bartenders and easy listening music from Matthew.
