  1. Right now I am booked for a cruise on the Crown Princess in August 2021. I am curious to know if Princess is doing anything in terms of updating their HVAC systems and filtration on their fleet. I believe the Crown is about 15 years old and it would be nice to know if their system is updated even if their is a Covid vaccine by then.
  2. Schedule to arrive into the Southampton cruise port on August 30, 2021 on the Crown Princess. Staying on a hotel near Trafalgar Square in London. What is the best way and most reliable way to get there? Also what would the approximate cost be? Of course if the virus is still an issue there may not be a cruise anyway.
  3. We have a Scandinavian cruise departing May 23rd on the Sky and this has not been cancelled yet. Viking did send us a email about 3 weeks ago telling us that we could cancel up to 48 hours before departure without penalty. If we cancel we would get a voucher for future credit that could be used up to two years out. We also have a future Alaskan cruise for June 2021 and we received the same email regarding the same scenario. Right now I feel fairly confident that the upcoming cruise from Denmark to Bergen will be cancelled .
  4. Just looking at Viking ocean cruises in 2022. Right now they are showing cruises up to April 2022. Does anyone know when they will release cruises for the remainder of 2022?
  5. Sunset from aft of Reflection, October 2013. The colors in this jpg don't due justice to the real color of the sky.
  6. Picture from aft of Celebrity Solstice January 2016, lighthouse outside of Dunnedin, New Zealand.
  7. Planning on a cruise out of Copenhagen on Viking Sky the end of May. Given the issues of coronavirus I wonder if the crew is serving food to passengers in their buffet? Since using the same serving utensils by passengers is a great way to spread a potential virus. Having sailed with Oceania several times the crew serving passengers in the buffet is their procedure.
  8. Have recently booked an Alaska cruise for June 2021, Vancouver to Seward. Also have booked the post cruise land portion that goes to Denali NP. Just wondering if anyone did this during the 2019 Alaska travel season and what you thought of this?

    Whale Watching

    I have been on two cruises to Alaska and just love going on whale watch tours. On cruise with Princess and one with Oceania. Both cruises I did a whale watch out of Juneau. The tour itself was in Auke Bay, saw humpbacks both times. The second time there also saw a pod of Orcas, 3 generations in the pod. The other port was out of Icy Strait Point, many humpbacks and breaching as well. Hope this helps.
  10. Thank you all for the valuable information. Especially the detailed information regarding answers to all the possible questions. I think I will wait to purchase my card after I get to Copenhagen not knowing how energetic I will be feeling after a long flight from Toronto to Copenhagen.
  11. Going on a Viking cruise in May. Looking at getting a Copenhagen Card in the airport and then take the train to Nyhavn area where our hotel is. Thinking of buying the 72 hour card. We will spend two nights in the hotel and the ship does an overnight in Copenhagen as well. If we take the Metro to the hotel does the 72 hours start then with the Copenhagen Card or does it start with the first attraction that we use with the card?
  12. I had read somewhere recently that Viking cruises had a permit that would allow their cruises into Glacier Bay National Park. I am wondering when Viking will start cruising there?
  13. I am booked on the Viking Sky schedule to embark in Copenhagen on May 23, 2020. Which cruise terminal is Viking most likely to be using? We do spend an overnight on the ship in Copenhagen so kind of hoping the dock won’t be too far away from the city.
  14. Interesting information since Royal Caribbean Spectrum class ships will be docked there and both Azamara and Celebrity are both owned by Royal Caribbean. Would certainly be easier to get to from Tokyo . Got to be better location as well for land tours of Tokyo from the ship, especially when doing an overnight in Tokyo.
  15. I agree unless the cruise leaves from Yokohama. Cab fares from Tokyo to Yokohama would certainly add further expense.
