  1. Doesn’t look promising but I’m wondering if it’s any worse than any other cruise line. Perhaps ironically, I’m wondering if the fact that they’re demanding full payment so far in advance will significantly help their bottom line. Getting that much cash a year before they have to actually provide a service can’t hurt.
  2. Thanks for the responses, everyone. We decided to buy the Viking package for ease and peace of mind. 🙂
  3. Thank for the thoughtful response...Every on line forum has its share of trolls. 😉
  4. Thanks for all the advice, everyone. We decided to buy the Viking package for the peace of mind. :)
  5. Well, aren’t you a bowl of sunshine. Lol. I looked back through a week of threads before posting but admittedly did not think to use the search function. I guess we can’t all be perfect. And unless you’re the CEO, you really can’t guarantee that they won’t go bankrupt.
  6. Just after making a down payment on a 2022 cruise, I noticed that final payment is due June of THIS year. I called Viking and a nice young man gave me a vague non answer. My main concern is that if things took a turn for the worse and the company went bankrupt, I would probably never get my money back. Thoughts?
  7. Thanks for all the responses, folks. After reading all your comments, we decided to go with a different cruise line with more availability.
  8. I have a courtesy hold on a Viking cruise with a pre cruise addition of 2 nights in Oslo and a train ride to Bergen for just under 1K per person. The train ride looks to be under $100 if booked independently. I know anything booked through a cruise line is jacked up in price but do the transfers and such make this at all reasonable?

  10. I’m trying to book a Sirena cruise for next year and the only veranda cabin available is a connecting room (8027). Anyone ever sailed in one?
  11. “Pretty good hope” vaccine will work. This is scientifically meaningless. I’d be as thrilled as anyone if it works but I’m not holding my breath.
  12. To anyone scoffing at masks, please remember this- everyone in the White House is now required to wear them...except for the President, of course. 😕
  13. Exactly...this is no normal bankruptcy. This is the result of an unprecedented global health crisis that first came to most folks attention with reports of hundreds of stranded cruise ship passengers. It also puts in stark relief the inherent risks of cruising. I’ve loved cruising for decades but I have my doubts if I’ll ever cruise again and I’m sure I’m not alone.
  14. It was a quote from Steve Mnuchin while on Fox.
  15. The White House said today that international travel may not resume until 2021.
