Paying a year ahead
Started researching for next May and sent an Email to the travel agent. She came back with as Viking cruise (we went Uniworld last time but she says Uniworld is more cost effective). Anyway she says we can waitlist on the new longboats obligation free.
OK do it. So I send her the names and date of birth. I get an Email 2 days later saying pay $500 deposit each in 2 days time and the balance ($11,000) in 2 weeks.
Opinions on what to do invited. Surely the whole ship isn't booked up a year ahead. It's a May cruise Amsterdam to Basel.
