On our way!

homelands map text3Stockholm to Bergen—and beyond!

That’s where Mom and I are headed on our “Viking Homelands” tour on the just-out-of-the-shipyard Viking Star ship.

It’s another adventure in store for us and you’re welcome to join it—no passport or Dramamine are needed!

And, if you’ve ever wondered what it might be like to take an ocean cruise, here’s your chance to find out how it goes for two other ocean cruise newbies. There’s sure to be some mis-steps along with the fun—but I’m crossing my fingers that seasickness won’t be on the itinerary.

I’ll include posts, photos, printed materials and more as we plan and then experience this trip.

    can’t wait to hear all about your new adventure,just wish I was coming with you tell your mom I’ll be thinking about her dancing the nights away.
    Don’t imagine you’ll need to worry too much about seasickness the new ships are very stable you barely feel them moving.
    happy sailing!

      We’re leaving on June 26th of this year for the same cruise, with a post-cruise extension to Iceland.

      I’ll work on trying to get the “weather report” woven into my posts, Mary. That is exactly the kind of information I always was looking for, too.

      Have you seen CruiseOutlook.com? When you get closer to your cruise date it can be pretty helpful with some weather predictionis. Or not.

    Dear Ukalady,

    Both my wife and I have been avid followers of your blog as we will be on a Viking Homelands cruise next June.

    We love the way that you described your experiences on the Viking Star and hope that you will find the time to describe the remaining stops.

    Please 🙂
