  1. Wondering what would happen if you booked excursions to "use up" the remainder of a voucher, and then once onboard, if you cancel the excursion, would the value be refunded to your onboard account, effectively turning it into OBC? It might not be refunded to you in cash at the end of the trip, but you might be able to use it for gratuities, spa or shop purchases. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  2. Yes, the room stewards can open the divider between balconies. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  3. Yes, it's the same scenery on departure, but the lighting is different, and there's just something magical about the quiet morning sailing in past the Seven Sisters and rounding the band revealing the tiny town of Geiranger. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  4. In my opinion, the sail into Geiranger is one of the most beautiful fjord areas. I'd stay on the ship, enjoy the amazing views (from up on deck), and enjoy Geiranger. For private tours to all the viewpoints, look into the Panorama Exclusive Bus tour. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  5. That detail does seem incorrect. No ships spend a day in Hellesylt. Rarely more than a half hour. There's nothing there. And it's barely more than a half hour away from Geiranger. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  6. That sounds like a decent itinerary, although a bit late in the season. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  7. If memory serves, on Jupiter the control lets you adjust the temperature; not just off/on. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  8. All Veranda and Deluxe Veranda cabins are exactly the same size and configuration. The only difference between the number suffixes is location. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  9. Virtually the definition of "troll." Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  10. There are LOTS of professional sports teams not traveling right now. Should be able to find a plane. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  11. Agreed. Clay started and kept a wonderful live thread of this cruise, and unfortunately it's devolved into a ... I don't know what. Thank you Clay and the others who experienced this cruise for letting the rest of us follow along on your unexpected journey. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  12. Because it was a TA to Barcelona, and the pax weren't delivered to anywhere near their contracted destination. I don't know that anyone is saying they "must," or is expecting a 100% refund, but knowing how generous Viking has been in the past, it seems some who may have not even been on the cruise are curious how generous they will be in this case.

  13. The US State Department is now urging all overseas US citizens to return home now, or there's the possibility you won't be able to for an indeterminate amount of time. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  14. I am very glad that Viking is keeping you informed and taking care of you all. It is certainly as we've come to expect from Viking. At the same time I'm terribly sorry for the way your WC has turned out. I'm sure you and the others are gutted. I know the situation with the coronavirus is not (yet) nearly as dire in Canada as it is getting here in the US and many other parts of the world. It is truly changing hourly. Now all of California has been ordered to shelter in place. Store shelves are empty of cleaning supplies, hand sanitizer, toilet paper and other paper products, meats, vegetables, breads, canned goods.... It's a crazy situation. I do sincerely hope Viking is able to get you safely home and that when you get there, you remain safe and healthy. I know the cruise industry is hoping the current hiatus will be like turning off, then back on, a faucet. But honestly, right now, I think it will be a lot more difficult to restart the cruise industry, and likely the greater tourism industry, than those industries are hoping. Best wishes to you all.

  15. That makes sense. Until we're all COVID patients [emoji15] Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
