Baltic Cruise with Viking Ocean - Amateur Traveler Episode 525 (podcast)

Hear about a Baltic Cruise on Viking Ocean as the Amateur Traveler talks to Mary Jo Manzanares from about their recent Viking Homelands cruise on the Viking Sea.

Chris, Mary Jo and their respective spouses have recently returned from a 15 day cruise that traveled to 8 countries: Sweden (Stockholm), Finland (Helsinki), Russia (Saint Petersburg), Estonia (Tallinn), Poland (Gdansk), Germany (“Berlin”), Denmark (Copenhagen, Aalborg) and Sweden (Stvanger, Flam, Bergin).

Highlights of the trip include visites to 7 different UNESCO World Heritage sites including the Hermitage in Saint Petersburg, which is now Chris’s favorite art museum / palace.

Viking Ocean sponsored this trip because they are trying to get out the word that the company known for river cruises is also now in the ocean cruise business. A lot of the extras that they provided in the river cruise business like included shore excursions in every port, free beer and wine with meals, and free internet, have been carried over to this luxury cruise experience. The Viking Sea is less than a year old only about 6 months old, the second ship in the Viking Ocean fleet.

Hear about this great ship, wonderful crew and amazing cruise itinerary on this episode of Amateur Traveler.
