  1. Wow! The Taste of Britain meal looks yummy! 😍
  2. So sad when you sleep through breakfast, isn't it? 🤣 We left Viking Sea a month ago, and your photos are making me miss it SO much!
  3. Exactly! Plans are on hold until our daughter finds out if she can study abroad in Australia next winter. If she does, our travel budget will all go towards touring the land down under!
  4. How wonderful! I've just followed your blog and can't wait to hear about your journey. I have been looking at doing this cruise in reverse in the fall. Best of luck with everything. You've definitely got an adventure ahead of you! We completed our first Viking Ocean cruise in February, and we were SO impressed by the beautiful ship and incredible staff. Enjoy! 😃
  5. Wow! Your photos are breathtaking! This itinerary is definitely on my bucket list. Thank you so much for sharing. 😃
  6. We just disembarked on Saturday. Everybody's sensitivities are different, but at times I found the smoke smell to be quite overwhelming throughout that area. I was prepared before our Le Bistro dinner to ask to wait for an inside table, if they tried to seat us on the "patio" by the staircase. That evening it was particularly bad. Other times, not so much.
  7. I'm eagerly following along! It really is an excellent itinerary for a transatlantic. 😃
  8. Thanks so much for sharing! We are on the Breakaway in February, so I'm thrilled to read that you had such a great time! 😃
  9. We absolutely loved it on the Encore! I would definitely do it again! 😃
  10. I absolutely loved it, and have subscribed. We're taking our first Viking Ocean cruise in February, so I can't wait to follow along. Thank you for sharing it with us!
  11. Espresso martini! YUMMY! 🍸 I believe it's a $5 or $6 upcharge without the Plus Package. Any bar with an espresso machine should be able to make it, even if it is not on the menu. If you're a whiskey drinker, the Whistle Pig Rye ($35 a glass) is smooth and velvety! You can ask for any cocktail to be made with premium liquor. It makes such a difference! Although we are not generally champagne drinkers (which most people who love the Plus Package seem to be), bottles of wine with dinner (and the assistance of the wine steward) were very nice as well. We loved the PPBP! (Specialty coffees and sparkling water with every meal were the icing on the cake.)
  12. It was around $300 per person for our 9 day cruise. It varies depending on the length of the cruise.
