  1. That's very helpful information. Would love to see more if anyone else would like to share their plans with costs/times, etc.
  2. For those who are doing this sailing soon, can you share some info on the shore excursions for Tromso and Alta specifically? We are looking to do this cruise next year. How pricey are the shore excursions, and do many of them overlap with the included excursions? Are you finding many of them sold out online? We will have $600 OBC to spend and wondering if we wait until we get onboard to book some if we will find few choices. I am also wondering how Viking's searching for the northern lights excursions compare in time and cost to what we may be able to find with a private vendor.
  3. Sorry, I guess I didn't scroll back far enough. Interestingly, I just received a call from my TA, and she said for a sailing I'm looking at Feb of 2020, the final payment date is June 20, 2019, or about 250 days. I'm not sure what to think about that.
  4. I was just told by a large online agency that as of Nov 1, 2018, Viking will no longer allow them to extend the final payment date to six months vs. one year for final payment. Has anyone been told the same thing?
  5. I'm looking for a cruise for fall 2019 that includes Quebec City and is only 7 nts. It appears my only options for that would be departing/arriving Boston on HAL Zaandam/Veendam or NCL Gem, all of which are older ships and don't appear to get very good reviews. Any recommendations?
  6. That would make the decision very easy, but we're looking at either October or November of this year.
  7. I would prefer to sail from Port Canaveral, but I thought Enchantment might be getting a little worn. This will be an adults-only trip, so the slides and such are not a big concern.
  8. Which would be the better choice as far as most recently updated or best amenities? Brilliance, Enchantment or Mariner?
  9. Was there a different main stage show each night, including Golden Mickeys? Sent from my SM-G935V using Tapatalk
  10. I saw someone with a small pop-up beach tent on my visit a couple weeks ago. Sent from my SM-G935V using Tapatalk
  11. I was at HMC over Labor Day weekend. The floats were $19.99. I thought that was high. Will take my own next time. Sent from my SM-G935V using Tapatalk
  12. Just got off Conquest this morning. OV cabin on deck 1 had the card swipe type. Sent from my SM-G935V using Tapatalk
  13. I was able to go online and change a name on my booking the night before my cruise with no problem and no fee. Booked past guest rate. You may not be able to do it yourself since you used a travel agent. Sent from my SM-G935V using Tapatalk
  14. What time were you able to board in relation to when you mentioned they were calling FTTF? Sent from my SM-G935V using Tapatalk
  15. So I can arrive at port and board anytime after boarding begins? I don't have to choose an arrival appointment?
