    Hmmm....we didn't do the Chef's Table because of our aversion to seafood, and when we looked at the different menus we really couldn't find one that we would like. If they changed the menu after we booked I doubt that we would be happy... Thanks, again, for posting.

    Viking Jupiter [VIDEO]

    I did, thanks, and I saw video from another angle. I guess the "splash" that they were referring to earlier in this thread was actually the ship hitting the pier. I posted because I was surprised that none of them had weighed in, then I did more research and saw the impact. Sad.

    There's a story saying Viking Jupiter crashed into the pier at Piraeus and sustained some damage while being assisted by 3 tugs?

    Yes, we are Auckland to Bali, so we'll need it all! Just like a few years ago we did Barcelona to Stockholm....short sleeves in Barcelona, down jackets and hats and gloves at the end and they deiced our airplane!!

    Thanks again so much for your review. We leave in a week and I am now going to take some stuff out of my suitcase and replace it with cold weather clothes! I'm in AZ and was expecting summer there but it sounds chilly.... Hope you enjoyed your ribeye! Manfredi's ribeye is SO good!!

    Viking Orion -Reviews for excursions getting worse???

    Viking, thank you for answering the concerns via this forum. We are (very shortly) embarking on the Viking Orion 2/24 to 3/26 from Auckland to Bali. Several months ago I expressed my concerns to you via email regarding the excursions. I am happy that you have been looking at the problems and we are really hoping that we have some really nice tours. One of the reasons Viking is supposedly superior to other cruise lines is the included tour in each port. Sure, we could book our own (as we did on over 50 mainstream cruises), but a big lure to Viking was the included tours. Sure hope that they get better! For the price that we are paying, the included tours sure figured in. We don't have unlimited vacation funds (sure wish we did!! still working!!)

    Thanks so much!! We will be sailing into Sydney Harbor March 9? from Auckland on our way to Bali. Can't wait!!!!
  14. Some of us ordered room service and packed it up, some of us went to the World Cafe and bagged it up and brought it with us. We booked a private tour for 6 of us so that we would not be held up waiting for other people. Was only a couple of $$ more than the van that the CC people got together, and we got the CC discount. Plus we had some extra time to see other things because we decided to bring our lunch the second day. The first day we ate at a local restaurant. It was easy getting through immigration, we just had our passports and Alla confirmation. Can't remember what time, but it was an hour before the meeting time...we just wanted to be sure we were there in time. So we were pleasantly surprised when we left early.
