  1. Viking does so many things right. Laundry room meets are one of them.
  2. We recently completed two weeks on the Viking Jupiter, directly across from the laundry room. Only a couple of times were we aware of activity. And, then it was only momentary and non-intrusive. It was a good location for meeting fellow travellers.
  3. To Jwattle... Been there, done that several times when we host travel companions or new "cruise friends" ...what's the problem?
  4. Doesn't anyone look at the Princess website that can show a visual image and a diagram of the cabin that catches their interest?? If you are working with a travel agent, let the agent explain or refer you to the site where you can see different configurations. Basically "expanded balconies" on newer Princess ships have a love seat sized sofa area in addition to the standard bedroom space of a balcony cabin. (I think that this is the standard configuration of "veranda" staterooms on Princess's cousin Holland America.) I believe that only on the Pacific Princess all "balcony" cabins have the extended lounge area. Don't expect a larger balcony beyond the interior cabin. Besides, how much outside space do you really need?? .. Princess experience 25+ cruises. For Viking, the standard configuaration has a love seat area.😎 It's a welcome amenity on any cruise longer than 7 days; for some longer than 3 days. Happy Cruisin'
