  1. So sorry! I was looking at the Nieuw Amsterdam! 🙃
  2. You are under the pool deck. You will hear chairs scraping overhead very early in the morning. I would change if you can. We made that mistake once.
  3. Juneau requires about an hour of travel to the boats (30 min or so each way). In ISP it is about a 5 minute ride. Another advantage of a small port!
  4. We have stayed in both. On our second Avalon cruise, they upgraded us to a Panorama, which we were very excited about. Turns out, we really didn't notice that much difference, because we were never in the cabin. You mostly cruise at night and during the day you will most likely be at a stop, possibly rafted to another ship. You will be going in the summer and our upgraded one was a Christmas cruise, so quite a difference in usefulness of windows that open. If memory serves, the rooms are actually the same size, but the panorama feels bigger because of the windows. Is the panorama better?
  5. They should have a slow walkers group. Sometimes it doesn't make any difference, it all depends on the local guide leading the group. In Vienna, our guide walked so fast I thought we were in a race.
  6. I cancelled one excursion we had booked before the credit was available. Then rebooked and the credit was automatically applied. You do have to wait a few minutes between. I may have actually left the website and gone back in. It takes a few minutes for the cancellation to filter through.
  7. It may be too early for your cruise. If you the "Have it all" promotion, the specialty dining and $100 off shore excursion will show up on your planner. Ours just became active today. If you don't have the promotion, the rules may be different.
  8. Not true. I was able to book mine this morning online for our Aug 21st cruise.
  9. The whale watching here is phenomenal, much better than Juneau. The whales were bubble net feeding and it was fascinating. Don't dismiss ISP just because it is small. It is a nice change from the tourist heavy atmospheres of most of the other ports. It is quiet and peaceful and quaint.
  10. No reason it shouldn't be. It is actually part of the hotel and it looks like they are open. You can check with them to verify: capefoxlodge.com
  11. Yes there will be. If they are really cancelling all of these cruises and taking their sweet time notifying the passengers, we may be done with Viking. How much of a nightmare will it be trying to rebook our Christmas Markets cruise when they have cancelled (presumably) 10 out of 24 December cruises? I know our sailing was almost sold out, so I really don't understand this. If this is how they treat their customers, I think we will take a pass on sailing with them again.
  12. Yes, we are booked on the Mani, Basel to Amsterdam December 3rd. It is one of the sailings that is affected.
  13. Viking's website shows a concerning pattern of "sold out" cruises that were not there a few days ago. Certain days, ships going both directions on several itineraries are showing sold out. For instance, on the Rhine Getaway in December, all Friday and Saturday sailings in both directions are suddenly sold out. In earlier months, the dates change, but always the same day of the week, i.e. the same ship. This looks to me like a lot of cruises that they have been taking reservations for and collecting payment for may be cancelled. Thoughts?
  14. Agree. They have handled this aspect very poorly. If they were not going to have a way to use the credit, they should have waited to post the shore excursions.
  15. Yes! We rode up and down, no problem with mobility. In fact, coming down we saw a seal and a dog having a barking stand-off on the boardwalk! If you are there in August/September, the creek will be full of salmon (the seal was probably looking for lunch). Doesn't smell too good, but fun to watch.
