  1. We wanted a antibacterial soap so we brought our own. But just about 10 days later, 1/4 is already gone. Your milage may vary.
  2. Southern Hemisphere this afternoon about 3pm (our time). Pollywogs on board be no more.
  3. Finally hit the spa pool today. 800+ people on this boat and this place was nearly empty, for starters anyway. A hot pool with its own water jets, a hot tub, a sauna, a “snow grotto” and self heating lounge chairs once you laid down on them. Tough to make the snow grotto out, but there are two benches in there and snow piles in every corner. Hot cold - hot cold - hot cold. It’s one great way to get your body’s blood going and a full body invigoration.
  4. Next piece of swag we received a few days ago. We both received a box of business cards (500). As you can see with our name and stateroom. They’re for sharing with new friends on board so you can keep in touch. I think it would have been great if they put our full name and addresses on them. Then with the Viking logo and web site on the back they REALLY would have gotten some milage and advertisement out of everyone on board, especially once you used them back home. But we’re sure privacy concerns ruled the day here. Any way, once again, thanks Viking.
  5. When we first arrived in our room, we found our first little piece of swag from Viking on our bed. It’s an 18” x 12” magnetic map with a magnetic push pin to mark our current location. It obviously found its way up on the wall right away. If you zoom in you can see it marks our future track and stops across the planet. Cool stuff. It’ll feel right at home once we GET HOME and pair it up with a few other maps we have documenting our travels. Thanks Viking.
  6. From a few days ago as were exploring our new home for the next 4 months. The Wintergarden Tea Room, Viking heritage displays, the Theatre, a few refueling stations and the main Atrium. Photos will be of a smaller nature from now on, a lot easier to upload.
  7. Talked with Andy in the Atrium, seems the problem is that some who booked the 245 may have decided to wait to book some tours while on board for they are on for so long. Unfortunately they are unable to do so for segments past the one we are currently on. Yeah, that would not be fun.
  8. Good morning Andy. Here’s my .02 worth. From arriving, to this morning, we find everything exceptional. You have to remember, this cruise is just not for us. As far as just showing the LA/Sydney segment in the Viking Daily, well, that’s what’s next. No need for sensory overload for the next 119 days. Can you imagine trying to select all your tours, dinner reservations, flights, hotels and transportation for this cruise all in one day.?. Let’s sum it up in two words... Vacation baby,
  9. “Kiss the fish” a walk in the park compared to my crossing during my Navy days, USS Kitty Hawk, CV-63, July ‘81. Golden Dragon soon thereafter. Looking forward to another crossing 38 years later.
