  1. As expected my Viking Ocean cruise (7/26) was cancelled today. I had this same cruise booked in 2019 but was "bumped" when Viking said they were overbooked. That cruise also included airfare. As a result I was offered a certain dollar credit and a future cruise where I would be given a suite. This was then booked for late July 2020. Now I was told that when this cruise was cancelled I would be offered 125% future cruise credit but no airfare and no suite. As a result, booking the same cruise next year will cost me $9000 over and above my credit for their lowest level cabin. Not happy and not i
  2. I dont find most of the search tools for finding and comparing cruises very useful. No price drop alerts, no way to compare choice, prices don't include all costs (taxes, internet, tips etc), no ways to just look at just the lines you normally like. Am I crazy? Has anyone found a better way? What do you consider when you chose a cruise?
  3. Im considering my first Viking cruise. Im a veteran having taken just under 50 around the world. My normal lines are Crystal, Azamara and Oceania. How does Viking compare? One thing I have noticed is dont call the sales line off the website unless you want to browbeaten into submission. I have never had such rude, high pressure people speak to me about a cruise. Comments?
