  1. @Jenal2, I think you have misunderstood the YouTube video. With the greatest respect to Emma who created the video, the premise is not which cruise line has the best Sars-Cov-2 protections in place, but instead which are her top five cruise lines that have published Sars-Cov-2 measures. Emma has considered her preferences and headline price (without a comparison of what is included in the ticket price) in order to reach her personal ranking. As has been said on this thread, no one knows what each line will eventually offer in terms of Sars-Cov-2 protection measures, so
  2. Not really any of our business. i f you a shareholder you could propose a motion at the agm, but otherwise as a customer your only choice is to buy or go elsewhere.
  3. One thing to note is that there may not be a lift (elevator) at the station so you will most probably need to take your bags up a steep set of steps.
  4. Hi Uktog, I don't think this is a case of one cruise line v's another, I think we all have to be visibly seen to be following guidelines for cleanliness and this means washing hands whenever you wish to eat at the buffet. Sadly the majority of hand sanitisers will not protect anyone against Noro virus or Flu virus mostly because they don't contain the right chemicals (some do) and secondly because they are used incorrectly - a quick wipe isn't good enough. The best policy is to follow the healthcare recommendation of regularly, repeatedly wash hands for at least 20 seconds. Like it or
  5. Sadly this doesn’t protect anyone from those who eat from their plate with their fingers at the buffet, lick their fingers and then handle tongues or fruit. I am disappointed to tell you that this happened lots on my recent Viking cruise and I have seen it on other cruise lines. I always ask the crew to change the serving utensils but they never speak to the offenders. If you really care, wash your hands, use a napkin to handle tongues and do not think it is cool to eat food with your fingers.
  6. We have snorkeled twice with Woodwind over the years and have been very happy with our choice to be repeat customers. Be safe and be happy!
  7. On our recent Viking Sea cruise (West Indies) embarkation was delayed due to passenger sickness on the prior cruise. A letter explaining the situation was given out as passengers arrived in the terminal, and there were announcements, but many passengers walked right past the sanitisers as they boarded the ship. For the first 7 days, a crew member politely asked everyone to wash their hands as they entered the World Cafe, but this was bypassed by many if the crew member was replenishing towels. There were no such requests at the pool grill and I didn't see anyone sanitise or wash thei
  8. We used WhatsApp using Viking Wi-fi. Our phones stayed in airplane mode. Simple, effective, no cost group communication.
