  1. Found this photo in another website .. repeat World Cruisers presently on Viking Sun. Anyone recognise anyone ? Anyone prepared to ID themselves 😁
  2. We have been in 8019 (3 times) and 7002 (once). Both excellent locations. 7002 is closer to Explorers Lounge etc, 8019 is closer to the open area above the pool (good for photo opportunities etc). A couple of times we have heard some noise above 8019 from people playing on the sports deck (during the day), but the sports area on Deck 9 is closed at night so it is not a problem in the evening. We have booked 7002 for South America next year, simply because it is a little less expensive. 💰
  3. One final thought SabreSailor .. comments above relate to the 'included' laundry service. On the last full day on-board (ie when no included service available) I believe you can pay extra for same day return of laundry .. which we have never done. A couple of times we have used the laundry machines to do a quick wash / dry in the evening prior to disembarking.
  4. Apologies .. yes of course millybess is correct. Your underwear / socks etc will be in the box but your shirts / trousers etc will be on hangers in the wardrobe.
  5. Never used dry cleaning service .. but if you leave your laundry bag and laundry form on the bed by mid morning it will be collected - and returned the next afternoon (all nicely folded and wrapped, inside a cute box). This means no laundry service on your last full day on-board as you disembark early the next day. We have completed 4 Viking Ocean cruises in Penthouse Junior Suites and love the laundry service perk. Enjoy.
  6. hello to all on board, and to all who are watching from afar. We haven't posted on CC for over 12 months, but we do still read posts from time to time and we heard the latest Viking WC is underway - so we couldn't resist a quick hello. We have now completed 4 Viking ocean cruises (all great) and have South America (BA - Santiago) booked with Viking for late next year. We will obviously be very interested in reports on that section of the cruise. Best wishes for a safe journey.
  7. G'day Mark. We are pre-registered for Basel - Amsterdam with Scenic for 2021. This goes on sale in Jan / Feb 2020, so we can't actually answer your question. But we will be interested in the thoughts of others with more experience on this issue - and we will be very interested in following your Budapest - Amsterdam adventure (your thoughts about cabin, food, tours, on-board experience etc). So please feel free to post your thoughts from time to time. We did Budapest - Amsterdam with APT some years ago and had a great time (perfect weather, perfect water levels) so we hope you have an equally great time. Cheers from Qld
  8. hello Annarundel FYI below, a couple of interesting past discussions. As suggested, there is lots of very helpful information in this forum if you keep searching. Obviously you need to know your cabin category and the number of days application to that category. Dinner and spa reservations usually open up a week after your excursion bookings https://boards.cruisecritic.com.au/showthread.php?t=2664442&highlight=payment+for+excursions https://boards.cruisecritic.com.au/showthread.php?t=2661550&highlight=payment+for+excursions
