  1. there was no fee for using the facilities without booking a service. At the time of my last cruise no reservations were needed but that might change with the new guidelines.
  2. World cruises are a completely different animal than the regular cruises. A lot of sea days and things are not the same as regular cruising. You may or may not have the opportunity to sign up for 'cooking classes" until you board. They sometimes offer a scaled down version of "Kitchen Table', at a cheaper price(usually on sea days, as you don't go the market with the chef and as my understanding, they are not open until you board. The regular "Kitchen Table" experience can be booked before you board, when it is time for you to sign up for excursions, when offered on your cruise.
  3. I recently read that Viking has been to Panama City, Florida and was scoping out the location for a Gulf Coast Cruise. Not on the schedule yet that I know of. It will be done on the Star, according to the report. I don't know anything about any other ports. I think there is something that says you have to make a stop on an Ocean cruise in one foreign country but I'm not sure. Wonder how that would be arranged? I think they might be looking for ways to put the ships to work while things are still pretty much in the air. Anyone else heard about this?
  4. I have not done this but I assume you can drop them off anytime. They are certainly up on the ship as there are usually many with early trips to the airport. You might contact TellUs@Vikingcruises.com
  5. It was a last minute upgrade for Flashfearless on his first cruise!
  6. Thanks for answering the page. It's nice to see you were treated so well, once on board. When you posted the pictures of Venice I was indeed surprised. I'm glad you got a glimpse.
  7. I lived in Atlanta in the 70's. Right on Piedmont, across from the park. Such a great cruise. We went early to Stockholm and stayed a few days in Bergen. So much to research to fully know what you're seeing. Had always wanted to go to Norway since elementary school but seeing the other ports really opened up so much for me. Never thought i would like cruising. Not far from the Gulf and so many people go to the Caribbean so beach was never a draw. I was just closing myself off to experiences I had never imagined. Made one more cruise since then with Viking. I think you'll like it. W
  8. You're going on the same cruise I did as my first cruise(ever). This was not my experience so maybe Flashfearless can give you some info. Look up his posts. He even posted some pictures from the party. You can take your drinks anywhere you want to on the ship and if you buy some on the cruise you can bring it on the ship.Not sure, but I think the boardroom in OS is at the opposite side from Explorer's Lounge. I doubt you can as I'm sure you wouldn't want people to be able to see you from there. You may not know anyone on the cruise now but by the time you sail you will probably have con
  9. I know someone that got an upgrade to the Owners Suite on his first cruise. It happened a little before the cruise so I'm not sure how much planning they did. There a party included with the suite.
  10. "P Croatia" was suppose to be Split,Croatia.
  11. Viking's included is an overview. If you've seen the port before it might seem a little lack luster but it's not suppose to be an in depth look into anything in particular. I loved the included in Alborg, Denmark and P Croatia. Both walking tours, maybe form 3-4 hours from my recollection. I did the included to Berlin. A 12 hour excursion: 3 hours on train to the city and then about 1.5 hour bus tour with a couple of stops and then about 4 hours on your own before being transported to the train and back to the ship. It was fine since we had not been but some thought is wasn't enough to
  12. This is exactly what I thought you should do. Any promos for the first cruise will be gone. I thought you probably wouldn't get the same room but I see that is not always the case. Whatever the particulars, if you save more than $200 on the rebooking then do it and you are ahead of the game.
  13. This early final payment is not due to Virus. They have had this policy for quiet some time. Previous cruisers can sometimes get it moved but you have to ask at time of booking. In your case, I would wait until the payment is due and then have your Viking agent check and see what is available. He might need to be nudged for your sanity. I booked my first Viking cruise about a year before the ship was built(Star) and 2.5 years before the cruise in order to get the cabin class I wanted. Remember that these ships are smaller for the ocean cruises and I'm not sure about comparable ships fo
  14. They wouldn't offer if they didn't think there would be one. Some become available when final payment is due. Plans change for other reasons and judging on past experiences they are playing the odds at a certain percentage. It will at least be what they said but you could certainly be better. I have met some people that have taken this option and some don't know for sure until the last minute which cabin is which.
  15. Flybussen last stop was at the Raddison from the airport. You can use a card for payment.
