  1. Viking always leaves the site open for every cruise even if it’s sold out. If it still grayed out I’m sure it’s cancelled. We are supposed to Ben on France’s Finest River Sept 7. We will see.
  2. We were on the Dec 18 cruise with the missed container and missed Devil Island. If you had read the entire thread you would know that.
  3. No, this isn’t an adventure movie. If you want to do that, I recommend Acapulco. We took a tour there of the real jungle where Rambo was filmed. The estuary to the river is huge and long, over 100 miles so you won’t see anything for some time. There are cities along the way you can see from the ship. We tendered in Paratins and Belem. I did not get off at Belem because it was such a hit and humid day and people were passing out on the dock. Most interesting for us was Santarem. We did the piranha fishing and had a ball, they take you in a smaller boat through the areas the ship can’t reach. We also did Meeting of the Waters which was fantastic. We also did one of the jungle walk, Think it was in Santarem. But you aren’t going to see a lot of wildlife. They don’t like having people around.
  4. Look on that other social site. Phil Buzby has pictures. They completed about 2 weeks ago.
  5. Peeps on the Egypt thread say they have been booking Abu Simbel for a year from now.
  6. Where did You Go? We miss you. LadyImpactOhio
  7. I wasn’t trying to hijack this thread. It was an aside to a friend of mine because I didn’t think it was worth a new topic. Nothing I said was inaccurate. There is a passenger on the Viking ship on that site that can’t be named who was on deck and was an eye witness. That is all.
  8. We tendered twice on the Amazon trip. That was the Sea.They knew what they were doing, it was very quick and one loaded at each end. As far as tour companies we set up a tour with Patrick Watts in the Falklands and I read the reviews on Trip Advisor, which all were very good. I think there is only one other tour operator on the island. I know Viking won’t we able to accommodate all who want to go on this tour so that’s why we booked with him. And I understand about this is these people’s livelihood and they have to get passengers back on time. We’re going on a new ship as well, the Jupiter and I think they had some issues in the beginning in the Med but I don’t know about tendering. You may may not have heard, and I hate to be the bearer of this news. But a Viking river ship hit a tour boat on the Danube in Budapest and sunk it. No one on the Viking ship injured, but 7 are dead on the tour boat and quite a few are missing. The captain of the Viking ship was arrested. It happened In a storm with fog while both boats were going under a bridge at the same time.
  9. Many use Viator for tours which is owned by Trip Advisor.
  10. Now that makes me concerned. We tender on the Falklands stop in February there’s no other way.And we’ve booked a private tour. We haven’t paid, and if we can, after seeing this we may end up going on a Viking tour if we can get it.
  11. We’ve lost out on many and we are in the second group.
