  1. I wonder if this will not be an issue here on out...now that Iceland has reversed their mask policy?

    Are the prices listed here for both Ocean and River cruises? Have a river cruise booked and unsure how much laundry will be.
  3. I just read your blog link that you provided. I just want to clarify something you wrote... According to Viking Jupiter staff fewer than 10 passengers were quarantined for the last 5 days of the cruise due to contact tracing, and guest services went out of their way to make those quarantined in their cabins comfortable. What?????! So, one person tested positive. That one person had to be quarantined. The 10 people that spent adequate time (contact tracing) around the positive person had to be quarantined for 5 days??? Did those 10 people test positive? I don't
  4. I can understand your disappointment. Prior to our June 15th Bermuda cruise it was next to impossible to get a straight answer from anyone. I don't know how many times I called the 1-800-viking number and got different answers to the same questions. Doesn't instill confidence. It's obvious to me that Viking needs to do better training for their customer service staff answering phones. Everyone needs to be on the same-and accurate-page! We too were told our itinerary would include 3 stops...Hamilton, St. George's and Kings Wharf but once we got onboard we learned differently.
  5. Pertaining to the new COVID requirements on land...did it feel any different than it did on the ship? I was planning on wearing a mask in the stores that we would visit anyway but am wondering what you think.
  6. I agree with you...clarity is of the utmost importance. This is what we went through with our Bermuda cruise...one hand didn't know what the other hand was doing. In the end, YOU are responsible for getting into Iceland legally and you alone will have to answer for not having the right papers or tests...not Viking. I'm pretty sure it states that somewhere in the contract we sign...yes? Knowing that, I would go with what the covid.is website says first and foremost. Best of luck and I hope things get straightened out very quickly!
  7. Alright, that's what I wondered. I wasn't sure if the one on Jupiter was ever officially confirmed as a positive COVID case. If that is correct then there's actually been a total of 3...there was one on the Viking Orion back on the June 15th Bermuda sailing. That one was also found on day 4.
  8. California night was our favorite! The halibut was amazing!!
  9. So???? How was your stateroom? Did you love your aft-view? I am extremely curious how much balcony room you had, would love pictures if you have any you'd like to share. 🙂
  10. For clarification purposes; which 2 Viking COVID cases are you referring to exactly? ie: which ship(s)
  11. So after reading this thread yesterday, I woke up to an email this morning from Viking saying my stateroom had been assigned for our March cruise! I thought I had it all figured out and that we wouldn't get a stateroom assigned until after we did final payment but I was wrong. Didn't get an upgrade but still exciting to have our cabin location figured out!
  12. That's interesting! In what way do you think the window/door staterooms are larger?
  13. Seems like it to me. I like the amount of light that comes in with the slider option. Kind of amazed Viking doesn't have a better solution for the door/window option for window coverings. Those drapes currently in place block most of the view and access to the outside on the door/window situation.
