How Well Do You Remember Your First Cruise?
Hi, was thinking about first cruises -- mine was Celebrity Zenith NYC to Bermuda the 2nd week of September and of course we ran into a hurricane (or rather away). What do you remember about yours?

Hi, Leafeater, have done the Columbia from Spokane/Lewiston to Astoria. Fantastic experience -- and plenty to see and do. If you liked Viking in Europe you'll enjoy this, too.

I'm with Fairbourne, and frankly was surprised (and thrilled to be so) about how efficient the tenders were. They were large boats, not ship's boats, and the ride was a whopping five minutes to the...

Alas photopro2. Have come up empty despite numerous queries. Here's the official response from an official spokesperson: "We have no update on timings to give you."

For all the focus we’ve had on this trip off-the-ship, I thought it was important to say a few things about what the cruise experience was like. Is like. One more day (sad).

This is a great question, jodi0553 -- and hope my other pals from this voyage (and anyone else who wants to) will jump in, too.

We're pretty independent travelers and found the included tours to...

Hi, Photopro2 -- believe it or not I didn't forget you! Have asked around to a point, not gotten a sufficient reply, but am on to new sources, so will get back to you on this. Thanks for the nudge,...

Hi, Jodi0553, and thanks for the nice words and support. I don't mind admitting I'm ever so slightly envious that you have the entire trip to look forward to, though am grateful to have had the...

With you in mind, fairbourne, we ordered the Cullen Skink soup. Delicious. What's the name mean?


Azulann offers good advice. We literally have no other cruises planned this year (that'll...

How do you all feel about an all-midnight-all-the-time cruise of the Northern Lights in January - March? Big announcement by Viking today... Link: http://www.cruisecritic.com/news/news.cfm?ID=7917

Do you ever feel that, when you board your cruise, time (and ports of call and sea days with endless possibilities) stretch further than an infinity pool? And then, poof! You're looking down the...

I'm with jiminyC: Yes, Viking includes them with hand-towels and regular towels in the cabin, but your local hotel may or may not in Norway. We stayed at the Thon, and we had washclothes.

Honnigsvag, home of the North Cape, is the jump-off port for a trip to one of Europe’s most northern places. It’s beautiful, in a haunting, black-and-white (well, factor in some brown), stark way,...

Great question, russg140. I think it really depends on how much you want to eat out in Bergen. Norway's expensive -- while we're pretty raring to go on dining out when we're traveling, unless it's a...
Thanks! Carolyn
