  1. We cancelled our September 2020 cruise. Except for the $100 cancellation fee, the entire amount of the cruise as credited back to our credit card in less than 24 hours! Great service, Viking! Hopefully we will be rebooking for the same cruise in 2021!
  2. We did Bergen, Norway to Montreal last Fall (seems like years ago!). It was at the end of the hurricane (don’t remember the name)...we spent extra time in Bergen, missed the Shetlands and missed one stop in Greenland because of the hurricane. We did get to the Faroe Islands (the ship preceding ours missed this). In spite of the adjusted schedule, it was an incredible trip; I’d do it again in a minute!

  4. Looking forward to following your adventures once again. Thoroughly enjoy your Instagram postings! We leave on our fourth Viking Cruise in September....counting the days! Safe...and fun travels!
  5. On our recent ocean cruise everyone was stopped at the entrance to the dining facilities and “reminded” to either wash their hands or use the sanitizing mist spray before entering.
  6. I would recommend climbing the Bay Bridge. The tour is well managed, totally safe and the view is awesome!
  7. For Copenhagen. Consider one of the “free” walking tours (you are expected to tip your guide at the end, no charge up front)...Google “Free Copenhagen Walking Tours”. Buses can’t navigate the narrow roads around the important sights and you miss a lot of the charm of the city from a coach.

    We gave them a few choices of type ( i.e. Chardonnay, Pinot Grigio, Malbec) and they were able to supply our choices.

    The same for us. We “traded” all the booze and soft drinks for two bottles of wine that were replenished when empty.
  10. Agree with just_don’t...I have done both many times and the Flam trip is a “must do” IMO.
  11. I once agreed with you until someone pointed out...”but what about the people you don’t see...the cooks, the laundry crew, the people in the engine room, etc. By prepaying the amount, all are included...”, and you can still leave a bit extra for your cabin steward if you wish.
  12. In the past tipping in the Scandinavian countries was considered impolite and insulting. All employed people were considered “professionals” and there was no need to tip. I don’t know how much things have changed with the increase in tourism, but my Scandinavian friends still do not tip.
  13. Only during the daytime when the market is open. In the evening it is really quite pleasant.
