  1. This is what they advertise for housekeeping and servers: Qualifications You are at least 18 years old and have graduated from high school.

  2. For the most part we had really calm seas although there were 2 nights that after we went to bed the ship started really rocking and rolling. I think that the Captain was speeding up to make the next port on time. Weather wise we only had one really bad day and that was Provincetown where it was cold, windy and raining most of the day.
  3. Breakfast at the Four Seasons was great. It was a buffet in a private room just for people getting on the ship. All you could eat with an omlet station. The test was done at the hotel and they checked your vaccination record.
  4. I would definitely recommend a cab and the ships office will book it for you. We took the shuttle and it was very disorganized and we were lucky to make our noon flight. Next time I will book a cab or uber.
  5. The ship was suffering start up pains and keeping workers was difficult. When they restarted cruises, they had to hire almost all new staff and almost every day some staff left, one got sea sick and left, some thought the work was too hard, and some found the stimulus money was just much easier. It seems to be a sign of the times. They were constantly shuffling staff. I must say the food, when you got it, was absolutely delicious. They were short servers but it was not their problem and they tried really hard. There appeared to be a shortage of workers in the kitchen delaying getting the food
  6. I have a final payment coming up soon on a Viking 15 day cruise and have serious reservations about making it. When I read about some of the things being talked about it is starting to sound more like being hassled than going on a vacation. We had our June Viking Cruise cancelled and were able to get a full refund. With the money the cruise industry is hemorrhaging I have got to wonder how much longer they will be able to give full refunds. The fact that Holland America just sold 4 ships is an indicator how much they are hurting. We took our first cruise on our honeymoon in 1969 from Miami to
  7. Here is a link to the European Unions interim guidance for restarting cruise ship operations in Europe. https://www.healthygateways.eu/Portals/0/plcdocs/EU_HEALTHY_GATEWAYS_COVID-19_RESTARTING_CRUISES.pdf?ver=2020-07-01-115942-557
  8. Thank you for the idea, I contacted AMX and they are disputing the charges.
  9. Viking cancelled our June 3, 2020 Iceland’s Majestic Landscapes Cruise on March 30. I applied for a refund and just got the final payment amount, which I paid by e-check, deposited back into my account today. I made the initial deposit, pre-paid gratuities, silver spirits package and tours on 2 different credit cards, and that has been put back on the credit cards. I initially had Viking Air but found out I could do better booking Business Class tickets direct so I cancelled Viking Air and that amount paid by e-check was previously refunded. I purchased nonrefundable tickets direct from Delta
  10. We did Israel, Egypt and Jordan with Viking and the whole 24 days were amazing but three of the most memorable moments were riding a camel 2 miles to the pyramids, visiting the Temple mount and Petra.
  11. I want to book an Eastern Caribbean Cruise out of Port Canaveral for June 2021. How will I know when June 2021 Cruises will be available for booking? I have taken 2 previous Disney Cruises so I believe I can book a day or 2 before the booking period opens to the general public. I will be booking for some other family members and there are some particular cabin numbers we would like to book. Thank you, Tom
  12. Thank you, I knew I could find the answer here.
  13. We are on the Disney Fantasy June 8th sailing. How many days before the cruise can I expect to get the documents. Luggage tags, airline tickets booked by Disney etc. Thank you, Tom
