We booked this cruise in November 2016, primarily for the itinerary and small ship and also took the option of the Iceland pre-cruise extension and looked forward to it for 2 years. It was expensive but having cruised before on upper premium and middle market lines we felt that that the inclusions of wifi, included wines and beer and some tours were worth it. Booking from New Zealand meant we had ...

I had heard and read great reviews for Viking. I was interested in the Viking Homelands cruise and I was not disappointed. It was more than I realized. From the time Viking personnel met us at the airport and guided us through the port and then onto the ship, everything went smoothly. The food was great with good variety of menu and venue. The cabin was comfortable for the two of us. All the ...

We did the Vikings Homelands cruise on the Viking Star. We were impressed with the excellent food options, the onboard entertainment, and the choices of sidetrips. For us, seeing Swan Lake performed in St Petersburg was the highlight, although just touring The Winter Palace was a close second. There were three dinner restaurants, and the Italian option was our favorite. We consistently found ...

Smaller Ships are better

I like smaller ships, if you consider 900 passengers smaller. Less off and on boarding time, more personal service, less ship to have to navigate within, accessible to smaller, more intimate ports of call. Get to know the staff. Restaurants were excellent, with a wide choice of menu items. Lots of room in the general dinning area on the 7th deck. Never too crowded to find a seat for four. ...

We had wanted to visit the countries around the Baltic Sea and this particular cruise itinerary suited our preferences. We had previously taken a Viking river cruise so knew that we would be pleased with the Viking ocean cruise. Everything about the cruise met our expectations and we look forward to another booking with Viking. The cities/towns/ports visited were very interesting and there is ...

We had been on two Viking River cruises and were extremely impressed. We never had an interest to go on an Ocean cruise until those experiences. We were always disinterested in the larger capacity ships and felt that with Viking's smaller passenger count they could provide the same level of intimacy that we experienced on the River cruises. They did not disappoint!! The ship was beautiful ...

We wanted to try Viking Ocean and to cruise in the Baltic. It was a great itinerary good excursions. The Viking Star was the best ship we have ever been on, and we are long time Azamara fans. We were a bit concerned as it is a bit larger than the Azamara ships that we liked. But the increased size made it better, larger cabins and public spaces. The ship was right sized for the number of ...

We chose this cruise for the itinerary and for the Viking reputation. I was somewhat disappointed with the stage entertainment - specifically the the costumes for the women did not fit properly and one of the men in a tuxedo with no socks. The dining room waitstaff was also a disappointment. With all the pomp of presenting the menus in foreign languages, the waitstaff does not serve form ...

We chose Viking because of it's fine reputation for quality and service. The smaller ship size made the trip more intimate with a relaxed atmosphere free from queueing and crowds. We chose this particular cruise as it had ports in both Karen's and my homelands. So, we had an opportunity to visit our roots. Unfortunately, due to winds???? the Captain cancelled our stop in Gdansk Poland. Being ...
