  1. 4080 and 4082 are apt to be directly over the tenders. Looks like this has already been answered. I did not scroll far enough down. We have been in 4092 which was about 4 or 5 cabins back of the tender and in 5024 which was great.
  2. Marinetraffic.com has been quicker to show the updated position. Vessel finder yesterday still had not shown her movement but as Andy said, she is entering the Bali Sea.
  3. The Orion has been essentially stationary in the same location for weeks. I had just checked to see if the notation “For Orders”for destination had changed since last night and indeed it now shows destination as Singapore with ETA April 30 at 04:00. However speed is still essentially stationary. Maybe something is happening.
  4. About 2:30 EDT, April 16, Vessel Finder is showing Viking Sun still docked at Portsmouth but now shows destination 4/20 as KristiansAnd. Viking Sea is docked at KristiansUnd. Viking Sky is docked at Portsmouth having arrived early this morning. At this point destination is still showing destination as Portsmouth.
  5. They were flying on Air Canada from LHR to Vancouver. The flight from Gibraltar to LHR was on BA.
  6. Just for fun, three screen shots on my iPad of the Panomax on the Viking Sun as she arrives and docks in Lisbon this morning.
  7. Viking has just updated the current sailings information. https://www.vikingcruises.com/oceans/my-trip/current-sailings/index.html Good move. Oops. Someone else was posting as I was.
  8. OnTheJourney: I can assure you the The Mediterranean Odyssey cruise with Viking was anything but “a boring Meddy Cruise!” If it is offered on the cruise you are doing, I highly recommend the pre- or post- Ultimate Italy: Tuscany extension. It is jam packed with included excursions and meals.
  9. We were in 4092 on Sky and we were probably 5 or 6 staterooms beyond the tenders. Heard absolutely no noise and the tenders were barely visible if looking over the railing. We have also been in 5024 and it was great. Closer to forward elevators but no noise at all.
  10. Viking appears to have made an update to their statement on current sailing status regarding itineraries impacted by the corona virus: “The safety and security of our guests and crew is always our top priority. We are monitoring the Wuhan coronavirus situation closely and are aware of the travel advisories issued by the U.S. State Department on January 30th, in addition to updates issued by the Centers for Disease Control and the World Health Organization. Viking does not have any river sailings scheduled in China until March 2020, and given the current situation, modifications to those sailings will likely be necessary. We are evaluating options for our guests currently booked on Yangtze River itineraries, and in the week of February 3rd Viking Customer Relations will communicate directly with those impacted guests and their travel agents.”
  11. US State Department has elevated the travel advisory to the highest level: DO NOT TRAVEL to China.
  12. We scheduled a small group tour in the Lofoten Islands with two other couples we met on the CC roll call for our cruise with a company Lofoten Lights. A few pictures of some of what we saw.
  13. This was the itinerary for the cruise July 1, 2017 with embarkation at Greenwich. We had very good weather and did not miss any ports. We did have rain for our day in Edinburgh; crossing the North Sea was a little choppy but definitely not a problem. The morning in Geiranger was quite cloudy but by afternoon it was mostly sunny. We did the kayaking excursion in Geiranger fjord.
  14. Port times also will vary depending on the direction you are doing, i.e. London to Bergen or Bergen to London. In addition. Viking has tweaked this particular cruise over the years it has been doing it. Those changes seem to be based on experience and possibly feedback from cruisers. We did it going London (Greenwich Pier) to Bergen on July 1, 2017. I will see if I can find my invoice which had the port times but I know it is not now identical to what we did. On ours, they even did a change in days we were doing the Shetlands and Orkney Islands after we booked. Not a big issue and seemingly to keep two ships being in port the same day. If you go to Viking’s main website and find the cruise, then look at each day’s itinerary, you will be able to see a description of each day and some of the possible tour options that may be offered. I’ll try to take a picture of the port times tomorrow for our cruise just to give you an idea. It was a great cruise with gorgeous scenery. There are many more younger couples on the Ocean cruises than on the river cruises and more active excursions possible (optional and extra cost). I think one of their Ocean cruises would be much better for a honeymoon than their river cruises.
