    Passengers can get upgrades when a booking is made through a TA, directly through a Viking agent or when made with Viking and transferred to a TA.
  2. Just booked LA to Bergen! My husband is OK without the use of drawers. Just hope that all goes well with the world so that this adventure is possible.
  3. Was this offer just for US customers or has anyone from another country been given notice of it?
  4. We were in a DV5 near the back of the ship on Med. cruise in Dec. 2018 and found it very comfortable. It was very quiet and had very little motion.
  5. We arrived in BC on Mar. 19th and life hasn't changed much since getting out of quarantine. Good thing that we are used to the retired life together on a quiet island. I did tell Keith tonight that I was getting tired of making dinner every night! My reward was wine with dinner....not so bad! Sleep well.
  6. Welcome back to Canada! Now you have time to relax and enjoy your home. Spring has arrived in BC and we are fortunate to be having a string of beautiful sunny days. Hope that all is well you both and that you gradually adapt to life without the luxury we all enjoyed so much on the Viking Sun. Have a lovely Easter.
  7. Hope that you are in the air and on your way home by the time we wake up in beautiful B.C. Safe travels. Hope to welcome you home soon.
  8. Hello Deb and Monroe, We have been watching the progress of the cruise since we left all of you. It sounds like quite an adventure. As we spend our winters in California, we also needed to adjust our plans. Our government, travel insurance and most of all our family forced our decision to return to Canada early. Arrived back in BC yesterday after 3 long days on the road. Best wishes to all of you for good health and a safe return home. Our 37 days aboard was an experience of a lifetime. Beautiful ship and ports plus so many wonderful people.
  9. Best wishes to you and Judi. Please let Deb and Monroe that we are thinking of them. John and Carolyn are a lovely couple from Oregon and were in the cabin just forward of us. We are enjoying reports of your adventure. It sounds like you are in a very safe and wonderful place. Enjoy! We are planning our trip home and our 14 day self quarantine at SSI.
  10. Hi Andy & Judi, Just wondering if our neighbours John & Carolyn and friends, Monroe and Deb are still aboard. Had a major thunderstorm in Indio yesterday.
  11. Borrego Springs is lovely. We spent a couple of nights there a few years ago. It is far enough from any cities to see lots of bright stars at night. Also perfect for enjoying citrus fruit. You might want to make a Costco run to our area once in awhile!
  12. As Keith and I ate dinner by the fire pit in Indio, CA tonight, we agreed that we would love to be with you on the mystery tour to London.. Hope all of you aboard enjoy this next adventure as we did our time on the Viking Sun from San Pedro to Sydney. We were sad to leave our wonderful cruise and the people that we met.
  13. At the bottom of the home page for "ocean" and "river" cruises, there is a navy blue box with the heading: "Risk free cancellation...call for details"
  14. We have flown from LAX and YVR to Lisbon a number of times to visit family. The option of a direct flight was not an option and we needed to first fly into or out of a major European hub...CDG, AMS, LHR etc. The flights from Lisbon are usually early in the morning.
  15. We were fortunate with our NA flight from LAX to FCO return last December. The premium economy class was very comfortable. It was also pleasant to have access to the premier lounges in LA and Rome.
