We selected this cruise with Viking because we have taken a couple of river cruises with them and were extremely happy with all aspects of both journeys leading us to try their ocean cruise. This was not a disappointment in any way and it convinced us to book another future ocean cruise with Viking. Our Homelands cruise began in Bergen, Norway which was a lovely, charming city and we were very lucky to have a beautiful, sunny couple of days. Bonus! Embarkation was extremely smooth with a big factor being that the ship was a 930 passenger as opposed to thousands! The same goes for a pleasant disembarkation. We love the Scandinavian influence of the ships decor making it very tasteful, relaxing and comfortable. The staff could not have been more accommodating. We appreciated their cheerful, positive attitudes, which was very infectious! We were very happy with the food in all Viking Sea's restaurants. It was very difficult not to overeat with so many lovely items to indulge in. Our excursions were well organized and informative making us feel like we left knowing more about the people, culture and history of our destinations. We also enjoyed the educational aspects on board the ship. The onboard lectures were delivered by experts in their field and relevant to the places we visited. Travel for us is all about learning and Viking have this down to an art. It was very difficult to leave the ship after 2 weeks of pampering and comfort. Thank you Viking on a job well done, we are huge fans!

Brilliant Viking ship, staff, food and journey!
