  1. Hi, does anyone know if there are plans to extend the UK cruises beyond the current schedule (the last being 21 August)? It appears that for UK cruisers, obtaining travel insurance for cruises to other Countries is currently prohibitive. This makes taking any other Viking cruise from Malta, Iceland etc, an impossibility till the Government lifts further restrictions. Regards
  2. We should have started a roll call! Also took the opportunity to go into London last week for a couple of days before the tourists and office workers return. So much more enjoyable then normal to walk around and take in some sights. As you rightly say, even the tube was manageable (didn’t know they had seats)! Picture taken from the Shard viewing platform.
  3. We would love to try Viking (Azamara & Oceania our main stay lines) and are hoping that they introduce a similar sailing the following week (28 August) 🤞
  4. It’s always disappointing when you have a cruise cancelled. However, in these complicated times of Covid travel, I have to respect any cruise lines decision in adjusting/cancelling their itineraries in response to the prevailing Covid landscape. Frustrating yes, but I don’t put the blame at Azamara’s door. Regards
  5. Just took a look and the 3 & 9 July are available on the UK site. Aqua & balconies only though 3 July (didn’t check 9 July). Not sure if it makes any difference but I’m using the iPad which takes me to the UK site when you then click at the top of the page to the “United Kingdom” site.
  6. What a lovely dilemma to have. Both lines have never disappointed us and previous posts (on both boards) have outlined well the difference in offering between the two. We base our choice of line on the itinerary but given identical one’s, Azamara would win in a photo finish. The on board atmosphere is unique and one to experience. Good luck!
  7. Please bear in mind it’s as much to do with “choice” as it is “quantity” and drinking into oblivion. Only Beer and wine is the standard offering. We too are moderate drinkers but on Holiday my wife likes a pre dinner cocktail and myself a post dinner glass of port with the cheese board. We both enjoy an Irish coffee to conclude an evening of good food and company. I appreciate and respect that for some, the package is of no benefit. Regards
  8. Having never been to this area, we’re off on Sunday to Raithwaite’s, Sandsed and plan to take in the Railway. There appears to be many places to explore close to Whitby, just hope the weather is kind 🤞
  9. With the 48 hour “cruise with confidence” guarantee, would it have been possible to obtain a 100% cruise credit and then apply it to the August cruise? Regards
  10. Thanks for another informative video. At $19.99 per day, there’s no feeling of being ripped off. Knowing you won’t have a post cruise bar bill always feels good! However, on our Viking river cruise, the big win was being able to choose any wine from the wine list at lunch & dinner as opposed to the included daily “house wine”. Normally, a bottle would be provided. The breadth of choice and quality in itself, to us, was worth the premium.
  11. Hi Staffordshirecruiser How was your cruise? Regards
  12. It was a memorable weekend away 🤣👍
  13. Good question. We’re booked on the Journey for next June and having experienced the “Den” on Pursuit, conversion for us, would be welcomed.
  14. Thank you (watched earlier on YouTube), so good! 👍
