    Viking Sun World Cruise 2019

    I loved reading the posts from the first WC and a couple of blogs folks kept too. Now SantaFe1 you will be on board posting here, not from your armchair at home. So happy for you and all WC's that you all took the plunge and are doing a world cruise.

    Worth a read ..

    I agree with the writer's review in every aspect. Viking Ocean cruises adn their ships are exactly what I had been looking for. I used to think sea days were a waste of time. Not when in a Viking ship. I loved my 8 sea days on my 2018 Transatlantic. Will book another Vinkg cruise in 2019.

    sparkling wine

    Thanks for the tip. I love sparkling wine of any kind. My favorite is Cava which Viking does not have on its ships.☚ī¸

    On my 15 Ta VO cruise in 2018 ,we had seafood of all kinds. The lobster served in MDR was not the tiny rock tail kind. These were huge. Very tasty and not rubberly or dry. The variiety of seafood served in the buffet each night was great. They had a sea food grill set up on the outside deck one evening with grilled fish.

    Long lead times

    You certainly can book a fall Viking cruise in the Srping of 2019. Not every sailing in the Med will be sold out. As a past cruiser you will get $200. per person if you book within one year of your previous sailing. Also sign up for the VO email. I have seen some deals:reduced price of certain categories or reduced airfare in these emails Some of these deals are for saling only month in advance. Also book through a travela gent to get some addtional OBC. Good luck and keep track of your favorite Viking cruise for the fall of 2019 until you are eady to book.
  9. Thank you for your detailed review. I share you feeling of elegance throughout the ship. I never sat on all the various types of chairs and couches they had. And I was on a 15 day TA cruise with 8 sea days!

    Thanks for the link. It does take up some of the space, but still looks like a wonderful view forward from the upper level of Explorer's lounge.

    Viking Jupiter missing

    I sent an email to CC in September that Jupiter was not on the forum sidebar or roll call meet and migle. I got a reply that they were working on it for the sidebar on the Viking forum . It was a software issue. They did put it on the meet and mingle list.But that was before the new makeover of this site.
  12. Well it is good to see Cruise Critic back up and running. I see we now have a way to send messages to others , and a button to say "Like and thanks" Still exploring the new site.

    Viking Orion

    Thanks for posting this video of the Orion. I have been to Piraeus port twice. Both times it was full of cruise ships and always impressed as the ship moves in or out of this port.
