  1. Very concerned about air quality. Saw an article about Tennis Match in Melbourne. Some players had to drop out. Spectators had breathing masks. This is not the luxurious trip I signed up for. Kangaroo island, Batemans Island and Eden have been devastated and their ports closed. What are the rest of you doing?
  2. I was booked on a Viking Cruise leaving out of Hong Kong. As Viking makes you pay a year in advance, I cancelled. I did not like the answers they gave me. They had several cruises leaving out of Hong Kong in September. Personally, I do not want to travel to an area that is consistently having violent demonstrations and whose people feel that they have been wronged. Going to Australia with Seabourn instead. It is a big world.
  3. Our friend’s changed airports and got it down to $7500 per person. That is more than our mid ship deck 7 cabin is for a 15 day cruise.
  4. Bare in mind that the flight was booked with Seabourn and there was a$1000 air credit.
  5. Alaska air Ewr to Lax Virgin Australia Lax to Sydney Qantas Sydney to Lax United Lax to Ewr
  6. My travel agent does the legwork. Cannot believe that I got a $92 round trip NY to Sydney. Okay, it is economy. Paid for extra leg room though. When business is $8000. I will suffer a little.

    Please let me know how Viking handles this. When I spoke with them they had no answers.

    Hong Kong

    Cruise starts in Hong Kong this May. What would you do?
  9. My cruise does not depart until May. Just wondering what others think about departing from Hong Kong in the current political situation.
  10. The Hilton is a great hotel, especially the executive lounge. It is somewhat remote. Do not know where you depart from, but our Silversea cruise left across the canal from the hotel. There is a complimentary water shuttle that left us about 2 blocks away. If not the water taxi was over$100.
  11. i am interested in learning about experience with the AMA line. We have never done a river cruise. Generally speaking,we have cruised on the smaller luxury lines.
  12. We have travelled quite frequently on Crystal and less so on Seabourn. We loved them. Did not like Silversea or RCCL. We generally like to explore on our own or with small groups that let you linger when you find a spot you like. Just wondering what the excursion experience is like? I do not want to be herded like on RCCL. What is the caliber of food and service? We live in a suburb of NYC and are spoiled by all the culinary offerings. Are there onboard lectures? Would appreciate feedback from others who have travelled on luxury lines.
