  1. We will be on our first VO trip, Viking Homelands in August. Can anyone comment on the location/noise level of cabin 7014? It is a DV cabin. We are considering a PV 1 or 2, which were sold out until today & are now available as guarantee cabins. Not sure if we want to upgrade, 7014 looks pretty good and the extra $$ for the upgrade could be spent on excursions. Thanks for your comments.
  2. Thank you all for the responses. We are leaning toward the Baltics. I know the weather can be quite changeable...that said, what type of weather should I expect for August 18 - Sept. 8? May is also an option. What would be your "must see and do" sights and experiences for the fjords & Baltics itinerary? This board has been so helpful to us in planning, thanks again!
  3. We are considering a back to back cruise on HAL Nieuw Statendam which includes the fjords and Baltics OR a Viking trip (Empires of the Med, Lake Como to Athens) in August. We have cruised to the British Isles and the Med but never more than 12 days on ship and not to Russia or Scandinavia. We have previously been to Athens, Venice & Santorini and words cannot describe how amazing they were. The Croatian ports would be new stops for us. My questions, 1. Any thoughts on 21 days on HAL’s new ship and the length of trip? 2. Vikings itinerary and ship experience? 3. And finally, costs being very close, which one would you suggest? We are retired so have the time and I am thinking how very wonderful it would be to do either one of these trips! Thanks in advance for your kind responses🙂
  4. I am also looking at cruises to the Baltics in late Auagust. Just curious, and if you don't mind sharing, did you decide on a cruise? I really haven't noticed too many "deals...".
