  1. With the Covid lockdown, I'm not doing much and I'll help you research this if you'd like'
  2. I've looked at it this way for a few months now, but I don't know if it's always been this way. Of course, you could ask your TA to check with Viking directly. I was worried about that at first too! So I was relieved to find out that that doesn't happen!. I enjoy looking at what's available in some of the high-level cabins just for fun.
  3. Go to the Viking Cruises web page showing your cruise and the date. Click on the red "Book Now" tab at the upper right. Fill in Guest Information items, then click Next. Select a date and the Cruise Direction on the next page. 2. is Select a Stateroom Category-- click on the one you're interested in. 3. "Select a Stateroom Number"- the available room numbers will appear in this box. When you're done, just close the page.
  4. We've had the door twice and slider once, and we definitely preferred the slider. The door was very difficult to open, especially on a windy day.
  5. Our September VO Mediterranean Odyssey cruise got cancelled today. We have Alaska next June and decided to take the 125% voucher and book the MO again for May 2022 and upgrade the cabin to PS 3. Hate to not cruise this year, but we're happy with the way Viking has dealt with this.
  6. Uh oh, I must apologize for posting some mis-information. I've been corrected, and I want to say what the situation really is. We actually hope that Viking cancels the September 2020 Med. Odyssey cruise that we're booked on, so that we may get the 25% bonus voucher they've been offering. So, we're delaying actually canceling the cruise and are waiting for a while. As you may know, Viking posts a Cancel Date schedule for each cruise and the longer you wait to cancel, the higher the penalty it costs you--in that you forfeit a given amount from the refund. The good part is that for now, Viking will let you use that penalty amount as a voucher toward a currently booked cruise or a brand new booking (and refund the remaining amount). So, we've looked at the price of the Alaska cruise we have already booked for June 2021, and will wait until the date arrives that our penalty does not exceed that amount. That date is about 1 month before the Med Odyssey is scheduled to embark. So sorry I didn't explain this correctly to begin with. It's a bit difficult to explain, but I hope this makes more sense
  7. We were told 3 days ago that if we cancelled our September 2020 cruise, we could apply the voucher to our cruise to Alaska that is already booked for June 202. The Alaska cruise is cheaper than the Med. one, and we would get a refund for the difference.
  8. We hope to do the VO Mediterranean Odyssey cruise in 2021 or 2022 and are wondering when would be the best time to be in that area. Looking at September or October (or spring if that would be better). September looks rather warm and October may have more rain. What month would you recommend? Thanks!
  9. Definitely email Viking! But I think the address is Tellus@vikingcruises.com
  10. Thank you for this information. Lucca is sounding better and better!!!
  11. We've been to Pisa and Florence and were wondering about an optional Viking tour to Lucca. Would appreciate any information about it from folks who've been there. Our stop at Livorno is on a Sunday (not sure if that affects any sights). Thanks!
  12. I wrote a review of this cruise on July 21, 2019, "on Viking Jupiter now for British Isles Cruise". Check it out for info. The smaller ports in Scotland were terrific and full of interesting history.
  13. No AC on the train. Fortunately it was not hot when we were there,
  14. Our tour included walking along part of the wall but not the Memorial and Documentation Center. We visited the Allied Museum. If you have questions about what an optional tour includes, write to "tellus@vikingcruises.com" and ask them. They are wonderful and respond very quickly.
  15. Thanks for posting all this info--especially the website for ISP
