  1. A lot of things have to happen before cruising takes place again. Travel restrictions need to be lifted. Physical distancing rules need to be lifted. Attractions need to open up again. Bans imposed by governments on cruise ship visits need to be lifted. Travel insurance companies need to start issuing policies again. And a vaccine would be nice. After all that personally I’d be looking at 6 months of trouble free cruising before I’d consider hoping on board again. And by trouble free I mean no ships being denied entry by port authorities if passengers on board have a sniffle!
  2. Have tried the premium and standard wines at chef’s table and both have always been good with generous pours and refills. In fact we had trouble drinking our paired wines before the next course came out!
  3. LOL yes will see if any changes when I go on my next Viking cruise!
  4. Unless you encounter a website glitch where after making your allocated reservations in MVJ you are told you have '-1 reservations remaining' and can make some more! 😉 We also had no trouble making reservations for either restaurant via the app once on board. The 8 and 8:30 time slots always seemed available so our plan was often - 1. See the port we were at. 2. Get back on board, have a rest and go to the spa from about 6:30/7pm when we were often the only people in there! 3. Have dinner at 8/8:30 in Manfredis or Chefs Table.
  5. I've noticed that your pricing is very different from one country to the next. For instance booking from Australia if I go to your .no site I can get a Jan 8, 2020 Bergen round trip for 37688K (about $A6196) but if I look at your UK site it is 3848 pounds (about $A7098) nearly $1000 dearer for same category Arctic Superior cabin on middle deck! Can I book with your Norwegian site (I'm happy to read Norwegian!). thanks.
  6. We had a great Northern Lights trip last January on the Finnmarken - probably the best cruise we have ever done! Just wondering though why we only spent an hour in Stokmarknes - we were really enjoying the Finnmarken museum there but had to race back to the 'real' Finnmarken. It would be great to make that a longer stop on future voyages.
