“Viking Homelands”
Eileen & David - WA, Australia Aug 2019
We were so impressed with our recent ocean cruise onboard the Viking Sky. We boarded the ship on 25th August to do The Viking Homelands, and loved everything about the whole journey. So much to do onboard with space for everyone and the free excursions in every port with excellent local guides and time to explore afterwards, as well as optional more in-depth tours on offer. The service throughout was exceptional, as was the food and restaurant choices . The Baltic offers so much in scenery, culture ...read more

“Viking Ocean cruising ... hard to fault”
Chris - QLD, Australia Aug 2019

Garry & Barbara - QLD, Australia Aug 2019
Expensive but all inclusive - we only needed to pay for gifts to take home. A 5* experience with the small ship, meals, drinks & shore activities (with just over 100 guests) made this a great tour to remember!

“Lovely Viking cruise”

The optional excursions in each port were a little disappointing, not a lot to see or do in some of the ports and we had to use tender boats in most of the ports which was quite annoying. All in all though, a very good cruise, would ...read more
