  1. We, the op on this thread, were told the same thing before the southbound trip last Nov. There was much grumbling about it on our roll call thread. Then, when we got on the ship, the pool was open for the entire cruise. Hoping the same for you.
  2. Yes, we did pay extra for the business upgrade. We knew that going in. We were subject to their routing and that is why we were so happy to get the routing we wanted. My point in posting was to say that, while it is frequently possible to request a specific routing for business class, it would seem that Viking contracts for a specific number of business seats on a specific flight. So, the earlier the better.
  3. We are flying to Barcelona in 10 days. When we booked our cruise last May, we were given free air and I paid for air plus so that we could upgrade to Business Class. After researching all possible flights, I called Viking to request Cleveland to Newark to Barcelona. I was told that all their contracted seats on the Newark flight were already taken, even though United showed many seats left. We were then booked Cleveland to Dulles to Munich to Barcelona with only 70 min layovers in both DC and Munich. I stewed about it for awhile and then called Viking air and explained my concerns. the love
  4. We were in that cabin last year and loved it! DH asked to have only cans of coke in the room fridge so, always six cans refilled daily.
  5. Got an email from Viking tonight informing us that the infinity pool will be shut down on our 22 day cruise, Nov. 13 Dec. 4, Barcelona to Buenes Aires. Anybody on board now have any info on reason why?
  6. Promptly and personally. We got a telephone call with the answer.
  7. We are Hilton Honers with beaucoup points. Checked to see if we could book a day room in Buenes Aires cause our flight misses the cutoff by 20 min. Yes we can for $326. Won’t take points. Sad.
  8. Interesting. We have used Tours by Locals several times and the very best one of all was Mumbai.
  9. You are right about the beauty of the Santa Croce. The first time we were in Florence my DH had that visit at the top of our to do list. When I asked why, he said that as a Catholic scientist, he had to go and apologize to Galileo.
  10. We have sailed into Bergen twice and both times the weather was spectacular! The locals were absolutely giddy both times, an absolute carnival atmosphere.
  11. Hmm. Wonder why they have never been stolen from the other lines. Having only cruised on Princess one time in our 37 cruises, I cannot comment on the amount of thievery that takes place on their ships but, a search on the CC boards will turn up many comments on the remarkable R— R——- products.
  12. Have done that frequently. Especially when staying in a hotel pre-cruise. got to love those wonderful plastic flasks.
  13. I also use the laundry service about every other day. i put it on the bed before leaving to go to dinner. It is pretty much always back the next afternoon.
  14. Then, of course, there is Viking--lets you bring on whatever you want.
  15. I guess I don"t but, what I have ordered is always sitting beside the ice bucket when we walk in.
  16. Hmm. Wonder why they have never been stolen from the other lines.
  17. Went on our first Princess cruise in June. Was surprised to discover that the bottles were so small and that they would not be in the cabin on arrival. Every other line has a a full liter waiting in the cabin on arrival. I assume that Princess is counting on you running out quickly and then buying from the bars.
  18. Thanks. We love the DV1 cabins facing aft. Glad to hear closet space is good.
  19. Only been on the Orion. What about the Jupiter? Drawers in closet?
  20. Sorry guys, I meant to type IAD. Fingers slipped I guess. Thanks for the help.
  21. In Nov. we will be flying on Viking air booked tickets, DUl to Munich to Barcelona. Only have 70 min. Layover in Munich. Will this be enough time. Worried about immigration and international to domestic terminals. Flying in on United and then switch to Lufthansa. This really has me stressed.
  22. What tour are you doing. Our problem is we spent 3 days in BA a few years ago and we saw all the regular tourist spots. We love Tours by Locals by the way.
