  1. Did you ever get a response? We will be there in two weeks
  2. Many thanks for your thoughtful reply. It about seals it for us: Celebrity again! I plan to book when we board Reflection in about three weeks. Also we cruised all the major rivers...on Vantage Deluxe.
  3. We are planning an Alaska Cruise in August 2021. Substantially the same itinerary is available on the Revolutionized Millennium and Viking Orion. We would book a Sky Suite on Millennium; really enjoy Luminae and Retreat ( née Michaels Club). Are there equivalents on Viking Ocean? I am hoping tho hear from folks who have experienced both lines: the good and the not so good. Thanks
  4. I did this in the Viking Forum. No helpful replies, most are Viking cheerleaders .
  5. We are considering this cruise for August 2021, Sky Suite. We are also considering a similar itinerary on Viking Ocean. I am having a hard time getting detailed information comparing Viking with Celebrity Sky Suites. HELP!
  6. How does Viking Ocean compare with Celebrity Sky Suite? The MDR seems to have mainly table for 4-6. I saw no tables for two, our strong preference. Also I can’t seem to find a sample wine list or dinner menus. We are in the process of deciding between Viking and our usual Celebrity for an Alaska Cruise. Any comments comparing the two lines will be helpful
  7. The biggest problem with upgrading to a Suites Class is the difficulty in returning to Aqua or Consierge Class. Service in Luminae and Michaels Club is wonderful. Beware to scones at afternoon tea in Michaels Club! Waiters in Luminae have memorized your preferences after a couple of meals. In short, everything is better in Suites Class
  8. We upgraded from Aqua Class to Sky Suite. As Sky Suite folks we received all the regular amenities of Suite Class: Luminae, Michaels Club, Boarding & Disembarking priorities, etc. We did NOT receive the Premium Drink Package and Unlimited internet which are usually included when we make our original booking in Suite Class. Our previous AQ booking included gratuities and some OBC, and the regular Beverage package. I paid (OBC) to upgrade to the Premium Beverage Package. We were notified of the successful upgrade about a week before our Cruise date. However we were sent the upgraded luggage tags by email only a couple of days before embarkation. I hope this helps.
  9. I am NOT INCORRECT. I am correct, we actually did it! Please read my words! You do not get the usual Suite perks as I enumerated, beverage package, extra points, internet, etc. You do get Michaels Club, Luminae , etc.
  10. We accepted a “bid-up” on Summit in September 2018. The usual Suite Class perks do NOT apply to such upgrades . You get the same number of Captains Club points as your original booking, in our case for AQ. However, the real impact is that once in Suites class (Michaels Club, Liminae, Butler, etc) we upgraded all our future bookings and new cruises.
  11. We took advantage to a similar upgrade offer a couple of cruises ago. We are hooked; our next three cruises are all Sky Suites. Luminae and Michaels Club are the main advantages. Lunch is served in Luminae on embarkation day and all Sea days. We also very much like the extra room in our cabin(especially storage) and disembarkation . You should also receive al four “ extras”
