Homelands Cruise photo albums


Recommended Posts

Dear Phil,

Can't thank you enough for sharing your photographs of your Homelands Cruise.  We will be traveling during that same time this year.  I have only started viewing your pictures and will continue to enjoy them.  I must ask you how you took these pictures.  They are really remarkable😍

Phil, thanks for sharing your photo album of the Viking Homelands cruise. It looks as if you had good weather for the cruise. We are taking this cruise in July. Can you advise which excursion you took in Copenhagen? It appears comprehensive, Jim

Copenhagen City tour  3 HR  INCLUDED 9:30AM 850 years of remarkable history during this tour. The Little Mermaid statue sitting in the harbor at Langelinie and visit the courtyard at Amalienborg Palace.
