  1. ^^^This^^^ Without exception, I've always gotten a better deal when going through a travel agent. There are other cruise forums that allow travel agent recommendations. I would find a good one for a WC and absolutely book through him/her, just for the OBC, if nothing else.
  2. Thanks for the insight on the BDB discussion Notamermaid.
  3. Looks like Germany is trying to do something about low water levels. Comments? https://www.bloomberg.com/news/features/2020-09-06/germany-is-re-engineering-the-rhine-europe-s-most-important-river?fbclid=IwAR10PigjmK7IUaoGs2OyOqpJOWDdd3YCnTOldZQUL2gvHmAit3de3Bbeoi0
  4. Personally, if I could stand the hip pain, I'd wait for the vaccine (maybe Jan?) before I did anything. So let's say you had surgery in Feb. That would give you 2 months to recover before your cruise. I'd talk to my doctor and see what he/she recommends about recovery. Just my 2 cents.
  5. My wife got sick once on a mass market cruise line, and there was a doctor on board for treatment. He prescribed some medicine which they had on board and everything turned out ok. What would happen on a Viking ship?
  6. Thanks for the heads up. Beautiful photos of his journeys.
  7. I guess it depends on where you are but we've had good luck with Uber
  8. You might try posting your question on the "cruise air" forum https://boards.cruisecritic.com/forum/77-cruise-air/
  9. I, too, suspect the rest of 2020 cruises will be cancelled. IMO, we won't cruise again until after a vaccine is available.
  10. I'm pretty sure HAL has cancelled the 2021 world cruise. I also read they sold the Amsterdam.
  11. I guess I'm somewhat of an optimist but I think there will be a vaccine late this year or early next. Once that happens, it will be a quick trip back to normal. I'm hopeful we'll be back to normal in the spring of 2021.
  12. Thanks for the info. My BC/BS does not cover international medical costs. And yes, I also view insurance (and airport parking, etc) as just another cost of the trip.
  13. I would check and double check about BC/BS working in a foreign country. Most times it doesn't.
