  1. So glad to hear you had a positive experience. Did you do any optional excursions that you would recommend?
  2. Hello, we are on the 7/25/2020 Alaska cruise with a pre- cruise extension in Denali. Looks like we are flying into Fairbanks. Does anyone know how long the trip is from the airport to the park, and what the method of transportation is? In my experience asking Viking does not always provide the correct info. Did Amsterdam to Budapest this year with the extension in Prague and was told transportation from Budapest to Prague would be by train when, in fact, it was by motorcoach.
  3. We did Amsterdam to Budapest late May-early June this year. I would definitely pack a wrap, but they will give you a blanket if you get chilly on the Aqauvit terrace. There are only a few tables for two, and they are in the covered portion of the terrace, the other tables are for four.. We really enjoyed dining out there and did it about half of the time(our cruise was 14 days and the weather was fantastic). The food is the same, they open about 15 minutes after the main dining room. There is no stampede as there are not that many people on a river cruise. Never had a problem getting a seat, but we are OK with dining with others. Absolutely loved our cruise. Enjoy.
  4. Thank you aungrl and senior gators for your input. I'm feeling much better about my choice. Happy sailing!
  5. Were there any specific complaints about being in the bow? Now I am concerned about my choice.
  6. Hi Kat, When in July 2020 are you sailing? We are on the July 25th sailing and are booked in ES 5001(Category ES1) which is forward. We just finished the Grand European Tour on the Longship Magni and the only explorer suites(only 2 on the ship) are aft, so we thought we'd change it up. If you're on the same sailing perhaps we could visit each other and compare so we can better pick our cabins for future sailings.
  7. Hello, I am so sorry to hear about your experience. We are booked on the Viking Magni next month in an Explorer Suite and hope we don't have this same problem. I would like to know if laundry service was included in this cabin category. It is listed as included in the two top stateroom categories, but does that mean it is complimentary or there is a charge? It would make a difference in how much we pack. I will post a review regarding the noise level after we complete our cruise. Hopefully they have resolved this problem.
