  1. What they told me on the phone yesterday is that the refund will go to the credit card that I used to pay fees. In my case, both American Express and Visa. They did say that the credit card companies sometimes take awhile to process . I will keep monitoring them. The figures that they gave me appear to be a total refund.
  2. Just got off the phone with Avalon. Kudos to them for making things so easy. We are getting refunds to our credit cards for full price of cruise. We were really looking forward to Paris to Marseilles, but couldn't see tying up that much cash for that long for rebooking.
  3. Haven't heard from Avalon yet.Our cruise booked for late May. We booked directly through them. Went to the my Avalon page. Nothing mentioned there. Guess we just have to wait it out. Good luck and be safe everyone.
  4. I have a question about the Bistro service in the lounge. Does it operate at the same hours as dinner in the dining room? Or can you eat earlier? I am a little concerned about going to bed on a full stomach, as that is usually doesn't work out well for me.
  5. Thank you youngdub. That is good to know.
  6. The Avalon hotel appears to be Hotel du Collectionneur Arc du Triumph. From what I have read online, it appears to be in a good location. Opinion?
  7. Hi. We are getting ready to pay our full fare for the Burgundy- Provence trip in May. We also booked 2 days inParis and 1 in Marseilles . My question for anyone who has done the land portion with Avalon is: how thorough are the included excursions of Paris? Should we be looking to make our own plans ?
  8. I have read the posts from the link from fuelscience. Thanks. I have also looked up Pot su Gard. Sounds fascinating. I would love to hear about the food. I believe that my itinerary has us in Lyon 2 days.
  9. Hi all. We have never done a river cruise. We are booked on Avalon Burgundy to Provence May 24,2020. Would appreciate any and all suggestions. I noticed that excursion information is not available until Feb.
  10. We cancelled June 20 and received full refund July 8.
  11. I just sent in my request for reimbursement. It has been 2 weeks since the ban was announced. Viking is just presenting a stall tactic in an effort to get everyone to complete final payments. That is not going to happen.
  12. My first inclination was to say without Cuba, that I had no interest in cruising with Viking. This thread has peaked my interest. If the cruise went to some less travelled ports like Antigua, Guadalupe,St Vinvent and Grenadines, St Lucia, and St Barts, I might consider keeping my reservation.
  13. Would really like to have a Viking response before my final payment is due in 3 weeks.
