  1. We too are looking forward to our first Viking Ocean, first transatlantic and first Christmas at sea. We are booked on the Sky this December (2019) from Lisbon to Miami. This will be a definite departure from our usual mega ship tropical cruise. Really looking forward to the change of pace, but have no idea what to really expect. Any insight into what to pack would be greatly appreciated. We're not quite sure what between the weather and what exactly is the Viking Ocean definition of "casual." Any help from you seasoned Viking Ocean cruisers?
  2. I have a navy blue indigo stretch velvet dress I've been thinking to take for Christmas dinner. I know it's probably a bit dressy but it's Christmas afterall. Living in the sub tropical south Texas -- 60's are winter for us 😂. I'm thinking this trip will be a good chance for us to see if we can travel with only carry on luggage -- even though it will be our longest non-car trip. I'm hoping by then I will have defined my style and paired things down to a fun, workable capsule travel wardrobe!
  3. We just booked a transatlantic cruise on Viking Ocean -- Lisbon to Miami -- for December of this year. This will be our longest cruise, our first on Viking Ocean, our first transatlantic and our first Christmas on a cruise ship. Per the itinerary we'll be in Bermuda on Christmas Eve :-). Looking for advice on weather, daytime cruise attire on Viking Ocean and dinner attire. I know there are no formal nights, but we're thinking we'll dress a bit spiffier for Christmas dinner. From what we've read they say Viking Ocean is a more casual ship, but it's hard to envision more casual than NCL or RCCL... I'm thinking they might mean a different kind of casual??? Hopefully some of you have some experience to share... TIA
