  1. https://cruisefever.net/royal-caribbean-extends-cancellation-policy-on-their-3-cruise-lines/?fbclid=IwAR3lL4PjZV-wKzo2Jz0tAjM0zlg4XLdCh3XUR_QWqXjU0bnM_KpKGjF_tPY This is great news! From an article from Cruise Fever today.
  2. I am hoping that the Viking offer of 125% FCV or 100% money back will still be available if they cancel this cruise. We will wait to do anything until we hear from Viking. If the cruise does happen I think the only port that may not be available would be Bermuda as the Azores are in Portugal and ship will be in port there. I did some research and Portugal should be open for flights in October but I have not booked flights yet and the prices, right now, keep going up. Everything changes day to day so one never knows what to do. Our plan was to do a week in Portugal, using an Air BnB, prior to
  3. I have a question for those of you who are very familiar with Viking cruises. I have my first Viking cruise scheduled in October 2020. It is the transatlantic from Lisbon to Miami. I am uncertain that this cruise will happen or that we will be able to go, but am hoping for the best. Do you think that the level of service and the quality and choices of food and entertainment will be the same as it was before the Covid crisis shutdown? The cruise lines have taken a devastating financial hit and I wonder if this will reflect in the onboard experience. Thank you.
  4. The Governor of CA has called a State of Emergency due to the situation of the Grand Princess and the recent deaths, in CA, due to Coronavirus. Maybe you are late to disembark because of this.
  5. I was on the Panorama for the 2/15 sailing and we saw whales as we were nearing Cabo - keep an eye out. Also, there could have been a time change last night & that's why the Java Blue wasn't open?
  6. Lots of great info on this forum! We have done many cruises, but never a TA. I finally convinced my hubby that we should take one. We are doing a Westbound from Lisbon to Miami in October and an Eastbound - Ft Lauderdale to Amsterdam in April 2021. After reading some of your comments I changed our cabin to Starboard side on the Eastbound TA. We are very excited about our TA adventures and hoping for smooth sailing and sunny skies. Thank you for great information.
  7. Does anyone know what purchased items should show up in My Planner and when would they show up? I'm on Feb 15 2020 Panorama sailing and I made a dinner reservation for the 555 Fahrenheit and also the Pasta Making Class at the Carnival Kitchen. These do not show up in my daily planner - are they supposed to? I called Carnival and the customer support rep I spoke with was new and did not have an answer for me. I received an email for the dinner reservation, but not for the class in Carnival Kitchen. Thanks for your help.
  8. I also booked for our Panorama cruise in Feb and I didn't have to prepay. I got an emailed confirmation, but it doesn't show in my planner. Does your?
  9. Thank you for sharing your cruise with us. It is very informative and beautiful. I will be following because we will be on our first Viking cruise in October 2020. I am looking forward to your next episode. Smooth sailing!
  10. We are booked on our first VO cruise on the Viking Sky Lisbon to Miami in October 2020. Was wondering what kind of activities and entertainment there might be on sea days? There are 4 sea days in a row and am hoping for some activities (other than eating & drinking 😀) to keep us from getting bored. Thanks
  11. I was in Puerto Penasco last week. We asked several local restaurant owners if they know when the port will be complete and nobody seems to know. We didn't go to look at it because there isn't much to see.
