  1. Yes, we do the very same thing KBourgeois! Actually, we have booked on our own twice (found cheaper air and routes) and this time, booked through Viking and then waited a few days to clear and booked and paid for our upgrade. Hope that helps.
  2. Anyone know anything about cabin #4048?
  3. Well several on this string don’t leave for months...we leave on our cruise in 20 days! We disembark in Hong Kong. We’ve been told by Viking “management knows about the situation and are discussing the options.” We aren’t worried; we just want to know before we leave as we have hotel reservations to extend in Hong Kong.
  4. We are only weeks away from our cruise...we leave early Sept. on Viking from Tokyo to Hong Kong. No notice from Viking yet. We are making an educated guess that Viking will change and we'll disembark in Taipei instead. Canade, Australia and US have all raised the level of warning to travel to Hong Kong.

    Boatharbour, We are seasoned travelers and certainly won't put ourselves at risk! Thank you for your comments! Yes, things are certainly getting heated up over there. I don't get ANY information from Viking. In fact, the guy I spoke to had NO CLUE as to anything going on in Hong Kong! We also know they are given "canned answers" to give to clients. We booked our air through Viking this time and know they will have to deal with getting us home...we aren't worried about that. We are "supposed" to go to Taipei, then a day at sea, then two nights in Hong Kong. We kinda
  6. We did the Baltic Sea cruise in May 2018. Am I reading correctly that they are still doing the same shows of Beatles and Abba? We leave on another cruise in Sept. and hoping it's not the same show 1 1/2 years later!
  7. We were in 6091 and loved the room. Only once or twice did we hear them move furniture on the outside deck but it wasn't at night or early morning.

    We got a great rate at the hotel. I checked today and prices have increased. Glad we made reservations when we did. i'll continue to check!

    We are arriving (end of cruise) in Hong Kong towards the end of September. We are staying at the New Millennium Hotel. I stayed there about 10 years ago (different name). It was a great location! We are watching HK news for updates and hoping things calm down sooner than later. I will also check to see if rates have come down since we booked!
  10. Liz Masterson, repost anywhere you would like to! I love researching our destinations.
  11. We went to Bergen a title over a year ago. Darling town! Bergen, known as the "Gateway to the Fjords," is Norway's second-largest city. We traveld in May and had warm beautiful weather...NO rain! woo hoo! We came in one day before we were to board the ship. Stayed at: Thon Hotel Bergen Brygge (walked to the ship) By the time we got to the hotel we were tired but walked to the wharf and had a fantastic shrimp lunch/dinner outside with a cold beer. We then walked a couple of blocks and went straight to the Funicular (we were told if it is sunny it is a must do as not
  12. Peregrina651, I can't post "live" as we went on that cruise a year ago last May. I do a ton of research before a trip and put together a booklet with flight information, excursions, "my walking guides", etc. That way we have it and we toss the paper away after that particular day. Tracy
  13. We went into Bergen a day early. LOVE Bergen! We arrived, checked into hotel (VERY close to cruise ship). Had a late lunch on the wharf. We got up in the morning and did my planned walk: Walking Tour: Historic Bergen Start: The Fish Market. Finish: West Norwegian Museum of Decorative Arts. Time: 1 hour 1. Fish Market: From here, walk west along the Strandkaien, hugging the harborfront on your right side, making a small detour inland at the Strandkaien's end. Within a block, at an angular jog in the avenue known as the Strandgaten, you'll see the solid, partially fortif
  14. We too shall just wait and see...I'll check it out once on board. 38 days but who's counting! 🙂
  15. You can do both at the same time. A little circle that you choose both names. We book excursions at the MOMENT they are available as to not get disappointed. We research way in advance.
