    Cool Cruiser
  1. I knew I would be well informed here!! Thank you all so much and now I can plan my last land based day in Venice.
  2. Has anyone had the experience of transferring from a pre-cruise Viking hotel to the ship on day of embarkation? My documents list that we have the transfers but no time and no method. Staying at Hilton Molino Stucky and curious to know if I have time to do some early morning photography and make it back to hotel before pickup. No answer from Viking on email or calling to inquire. Turning to you fine people!!
  3. Arriving Aug. 10 on an overnight flight from Toronto as part of a pre cruise Hilton add on. Our transfers are included from the airport to the Hilton-do you think we will have the luxury of a private water taxi? Not sure how well we will do if we cannot get into our room till the afternoon. I am a Hilton Honours member so may email them and beg for a room when we check arrive. Looking forward to the Venice add on and the Aug. 12 cruise.
  4. Travelling Aug. 12- Venice-Athens on the Orion. I look forward to your review although I realize we are on a different ship. Any travel tips about cruising with Viking and port related tips are most welcome.
  5. Thank you G.Girl in advance for posting a trip report as I am doing the same itinerary in August. I also have the Venice add on but I haven't booked any tours as yet. Enjoy.
  6. Thank you, the heat may be an issue as we are travelling in August. Thank you so much for your information, very helpful.
  7. Visited many years ago when my husband and I were much younger and fitter. Planning on a night in Athens post cruise and looking at either a 1/2 day tour or a self tour to the Acropolis and area. My question is how far to the entrance can we get by either tour or taxi to avoid an uphill climb. I heard about an elevator but we are not at that point yet. Thank you all for your kind replies.
  8. Sailing Aug. 12 Venice to Athens on the new Orion. We have not booked our air as yet as I have a question about the arrival time in Athens. Itinerary indicates arrival by 8am however our flight time would be leaving 1pm back to Canada. Has anyone had any experience arriving in Athens port with a same day flight departure? Considering booking a return for the following day just to be on the safe side. Thanks for your assistance.
