  1. Anyone been to Norway in October? I've read it's too early for any snow-related activities, but I'm wondering about scenery. Any snow-capped mountains that time of year?
  2. The only option for flights home from Bergen after our Viking cruise next year are flights with 2 stops. Here are my options for the stopover within Europe: 50 min in Oslo 1 hour 5 min in Copenhagen 1 hour 40 min in Oslo 2 hour 5 min in Oslo All four flights then connect in Newark or Chicago with 2 - 3 hrs layover. They are on SAS. Can someone please explain what will happen in either Oslo or Copenhagen? Will we go through passport control, have to re-check our luggage? Trying to decide how much time we will need. Thank you.
  3. I noticed today that 2021 Northern Lights cruises are up for Feb and Mar 2021 on the Viking Venus.
  4. When you canceled, did Viking require you to immediately choose another date, or do they keep your funds on deposit for a period of time until you decide on a new sail date?
  5. I have this cruise booked for 2020, but may need to cancel. I would feel better about canceling if I knew there would be a future opportunity for this itinerary. Certainly the question was not motivated by any other reason. I was hoping those more experienced Viking cruisers might at least know if they would release all 2021 at one time or whether there may be more yet to come based on how releases have happened in the past.
  6. I just canceled and rebooked 3 items today that dropped in price for a sailing on the Mariner next month. 8.99/day soda package, 11.99/day internet, 10.99 Coco Cay float, 43.99 Atlantis aquarium. Wouldn't normally book anything in Nassau, but one person in our group wants to see Atlantis.
  7. I noticed this cruise is still being offered in 2020, but nothing for 2021. Other itineraries have been released for 2021. Do you think this cruise will no longer be offered after the incident earlier this year?
  8. My SetSail Pass for my Mariner cruise next month currently shows deck 6, muster B11, but no cabin number assigned yet. Curious if anyone could tell me the location of muster B11.
  9. Does RCCL allow onboard credit to be applied towards gratuities?
  10. Are port times listed somewhere on the Viking website? Without port times, it's difficult to make decisions about the itinerary and to schedule private excursions. I am looking at some of the Med itineraries.
  11. Are the prices really less expensive when you book ahead versus on the ship? When I look in my cruise planner, it says about everything is some percentage off, but I wasn't sure if it was a marketing ploy and the same prices would be available once onboard. For example, I'm seeing the soda package being offered in the cruise planner for 8.99/day, floats at Coco Cay 13.99/day, wifi 12.99/day. This is for a sailing on the Mariner.
  12. Can you use pool floats in the new pool area, or only at the beach?
  13. Anyone done this itinerary? If so, how did you like the ports? A couple of them I'm not too familiar with. Thanks.
  14. I have been to Rome, Naples and Livorno on a previous cruise. Wouldn't mind returning though, as there were things I missed. Never been to Greece. Not a Game of Thrones fan. I like the idea of sailing from Rome and then into Venice. I would like to try Viking, but my main concern was I wasn't sure what the ports of Crotone, Bari and Sibenik were like, if there was much there to see in comparison to the bigger ports that NCL offers. Looking at the excursions offered by Viking in those ports, nothing really jumps out at me.
  15. Viking: Rome, Naples, Sicily, Crotone, Bari, Sibenik, Venice NCL: Rome, Kotor, Dubrovnik, Corfu, Santorini, Mykonos, Naples, Livorno, Rome Crotone, Bari and Sibenik are unfamiliar to me. How would you rate those stops in particular versus the NCL ports? I know Viking is a more upscale line and will be a smaller ship, but I'm more interested at this point in comparing the ports of call.
