"Russia & The Baltic Sea" becomes "Scenic Scandinavia"
"When we were advised of the itinerary change due to the war in Ukraine we had a long discussion regarding whether we still took the cruise or rebooked - our reason for booking was St Petersburg as neither of us had visited Russia.It was some years since either of us had cruised but the overall Viking experience was exceptional and far exceeded anything we had experienced cruising before...."Read More

We chose this cruise in 2019 after our first experience with Viking -- a River Cruise in Provence. We thought it would be a good way to see Scandinavia, where we had never been before. It would also have probably been our only chance to see St. Petersburg. After two covid cancellations we were pleased that we finally got to go, even without St. Petersburg (cancellation of which was a ...

We had heard good reviews about Viking from our friends so we decided to give it a try - we were on two prior cruises with other lines. We picked the Viking Homelands cruise after having two prior cruises cancelled due to Covid. We added Iceland as a pre-cruise excursion and were glad we did. We enjoyed all of our port of calls but wished Finland had been included on the itinerary. The ship was ...

The Viking cruise line gives you a 10 out of 10 service I felt so special and that’s fantastic Cruise. They make you feel like you are number one. I also had special dietary needs and they went out of their way to make sure that I was satisfied above and beyond. Also the excursions were very nice and organized as well. They also picked you up from the airport and brought you to your ...

I choose Viking because I wanted to treat myself to a great vacation and I wanted to be pampered. Mission accomplished. Viking took care of me. They fed me delicious meals and entertained me. Viking had great excursions and guides to help me explore new cultures and countries. Their spa, on the ship, soothed my muscles and gave me relaxation. Just being on the ship was a vacation. I enjoyed ...

This was our first Viking Cruise. We did the Viking Homelands with the pre-cruise extension in Iceland. From the minute we got off the plane in Reykjavik to the time we got on the plane for the return flight, everything was flawless. There was more than adequate help for the excursions and the housekeeping, dining, and other staff members were helpful and courteous. I would say it was one of ...

We knew Viking does a wonderful job of cruising and we wanted to see a part of the world we had not seen before. We were not disappointed! The Scandinavian countries all lived up to our expectations! The scenery is gorgeous and the history is interesting. Karlskrona, Sweden, was a surprising treasure; Copenhagen was charming; Eidfjord, Norway, was stunning! We were amazed at the bridge over the ...

We had originally book on a cruise to the Amazon, but that was cancelled due to COVID. When cruising opened up again, we used the credit Viking gave us and chose the Viking Homelands cruise. My ancestors were from Norway and Sweden, and I enjoyed a previous trip there. We also wanted to see Iceland. We had taken a Viking River cruise about 6 years ago and enjoyed it but weren't sure how we ...

The Baltic is beautiful in the summer and a perfect time to visit Scandinavia. We went to places we had only read about and were not at all disappointed in the beauty, history, and scope of what we saw. We were especially excited about visiting the Norwegian fjords. They were majestic and magnificent to say the least. We could not believe that a ship the size of the Star could sail right in ...
