  1. Thank you everyone for your tips and perspectives -- valuable information which I really appreciate. Just to confuse things, we have been thinking maybe we should focus on Norway more, since that's one place we really want to experience. So what are your opinions on the Shores & Fjords 8-day cruise (same as before), and adding on the 4-day extension of Best of Norway & Scenic train? Worth it or better to stay with the ocean and river combination? Thanks again!
  2. I'm considering the 15-day Rhine and Viking Shores & Fjords combination river/ocean cruise for 2023. Looks like a new offering starting in 2022? The idea of experiencing both types of cruises and seeing both Scandinavia and parts of Europe is appealing as this would be a "once-in-a-lifetime" trip due to budget limitations and increasing difficulty in handling overseas flights. We've never done a river cruise but have sailed 7 ocean cruises (with Alaska and Hawaii being our favorites) with Celebrity and Princess. Everything we have read and heard about Viking is very enticing, particularly the smaller size. We would likely be in the lowest stateroom category on both ocean and river ships which means being last on the list to make reservations for shore excursions and dining reservations. Would the included excursions still be available? Thanks for any advice and tips you can provide! JR
  3. We received an upsell offer for Grand Princess 15-day cruise to Hawaii from balcony to mini suite for $399 per person. I'd like the extra space but not for an additional $800!
  4. Thank you for this wonderful review. Like several other readers, I had never considered this itinerary but you have converted me!
  5. Jeannie, so sorry to read about your setback and missing Tahiti, but I know you will recover quickly and make the most of your time. Take care.
  6. Seems to be in use now headed to Hawaii according to Pescado Amarillo's current blog.
  7. We have a balcony cabin on Grand Princess and are considering renting a recliner. Does it fit through the door of a non- HC accessible cabin? Thank you for any insights.
  8. I understand that if you aren't quick enough to get the free tickets 60 days in advance, there's a chance to walk up on the day of your visit and get tickets to the Arizona memorial. If those run out, can you still visit the Missouri, Bowfin, and other sights at Pearl Harbor?
  9. I am trying to get a travel insurance policy transfer from a cruise we cancelled to a new cruise we booked on a different line. My deadline to purchase a new policy to get pre-existing conditions covered is June 3, and now I'm getting concerned that we won't get a decision about transferring the existing policy in time. Assuming I don't hear anything, should I buy a new policy on June 3 and use the 10-day review time as a buffer to buy a little more time? Thanks.
  10. Thanks for the replies. Sounds like the soda package won't be helpful, as canned drinks are not included and Sprite Zero is not offered as a fountain drink? But I can pre-order sixpacks so that is a positive.
  11. I have searched but didn't find an answer regarding availability of Sprite Zero onboard. I appreciate any responses. Thanks!
