  1. Hello! Has anyone taken the Krka National Park Walk excursion while in Split? (We have already booked it, but may possibly switch it to a different excursion..) Can you tell me if there is any free time afterwards before you get back on board the ship? It doesn't say there is...but the Krka National Park & Dubrava Falconry lists free time for lunch etc afterwards...Thinking I may have to switch excursions to get a bit of free time in?!
  2. So, along the lines of finding more active excursions...has anyone done the Corfu Mt. Pantokrator hike & Old Perithia? That sounds like it could be a good, active day. Just wondering about how long the hike is? The longer & more strenuous, the better for me! 🙂
  3. Well, I went on MyVikingJourney to browse excursions--and noticed our flights had been removed. Turns out the Chicago to Denver leg of the trip changed, so Viking Air had to cancel it due to it only having a 10minute layover-which obvi won't work! So, we called VA, and are now taking the early (OptionA) 7:55 AM flight. Looks like the decision was made for us...unless more flight times get moved around by the airlines. Turns out, after all this discussion, I'll have to be ready to disembark at 3AM regardless. If you happen to be on that shuttle bus with me, I will apologize in advance for my disheveled appearance 🙂
  4. Sorry about your locks and suitcase! I noticed ours get pretty roughed up and filthy when we travel. It's the reason I don't buy super expensive luggage if I'm checking my bags. Which I usually do...
  5. TSA approved locks for the win! It will at least be a small deterrent to the wrong people...maybe. But hey, at least my underwear won't be spilling out of an open zipper on the baggage carousel, right??
  6. Thanks everyone! How long does it take to obtain Global Entry start to finish?. I see it's a bit of a process-with an in person interview being mandatory etc.
  7. Question about this brush dryer...is it dual voltage? Or is that not needed on most ships? Also, can you add some wave/loose curls with this doo-dad as well? 🙂
  8. No we don't.. and if we keep our flight as it currently is, we would be going through customs on our stopover in Chicago. Yikes.
  9. Hi all! New cruiser & international traveler here! Do you put little locks on your suitcases-not so much at the airports(I realize they need access in the event of searches), but if you're doing a pre or post cruise stay? For instance, we have a pre cruise stay in Rome. I'm just wondering if your bag is with you for transport from the hotel to the ship etc, as I am under the impression Viking will take care of transporting your luggage for you onto the ship once we check out of the hotel. Or does Viking need to also gain access to your bags, therefore locks are frowned upon? Thanks in advance for your input/experience.
  10. Oh ok...3:15 is pretty painfully early to be all ready to go....ouch.
  11. Our return flight will be on Nov. 13th--so there will be chances for bad weather by then in Chicago. Ok, y'all may have me convinced to call my Viking air plus rep and move back to the early flight with only one stop. I also didn't take into account that the first leg of our flight (Barcelona to Munich) would not in fact, be considered the 3 hour pre arrival since it is not international. So yay-that's one extra hour of sleep I did not account for. Thank you all! I'm super glad I found these chat boards. 🙂
  12. Hi Micktooth! We are on the Mediterranean Odyssey -Nov.1 cruise.
  13. Hi friends! I'm trying to decide on flights. The flight from home to Venice is all set for the start of our trip. It's the flight back home I can't decide on. So, how about a game of "would you rather?"-- Option A-- Take the 7:55 AM flight, disembarking the ship by 4:00ishAM), keeping in mind there will be wine the evening prior in Barcelona. Only one stop (Munich) before home in Denver. OR Option B-- Take a 12:55 PM flight, disembarking ship around 9AM, but with stops in Frankfurt, then Chicago, then home to Denver. Both are Lufthansa Air. Thoughts? FYI-We are using Viking Air Plus. There were a few other late morning flights, but they have less than 90 minutes, which I am under the impression is a maintained Viking standard for layover time. Thank you!
  14. The Viking Ocean cruise director I booked with told me I cannot bring my curling iron similar appliances(and I immediately went into panic mode)..So my question is- do they not check your bags for an iron?
