  1. ken and clay, thanks for your experiences...I will opt for Clay's glass-like sea state. We had very rough weather crossing the Bay of Biscay. The dividers on our balcony were opening and banging...our balcony glass shattered ( the one outside not into our room) and our friends had water sloshing into the cabin...we were on deck 3 forward! Viking crew fixed everything VERY quickly!!! We missed Porto!
  2. sometimes the extensions dont show up when it is all booked. does it still show on your "my journey?"
  3. Why weren't you up on deck or in the Explorer's lounge? Are you not close enough to land to appreciate the landscape when rounding Cape Horn?
  4. I have an extra comforter put on the bottom of the bed when I first get on board!
  5. If you do decide to buy a bottle of your new favorite wine...they will store it for you and bring it to wherever you are eating!
  6. Clay, this will become a favorite of mine forever....so true for so many aspects of our lives!!
  7. everyone needs to find a cruise line that suits their needs....Viking does not try to be all things to all people...for those of us that it fits we appreciate that....but as Jim says the day will come and we will have to find one more suited for mobility issues. I don't want to become an obstacle to others' enjoyment of their cruise.
  8. they did have fever tree a couple of years ago!!! although not available on the ship I suggest you try Hendricks with Elderflower Tonic Water by fever tree...not your father's G&T!!!
  9. I love WALKING tours!!!
  10. LOVE walking the promenade deck...I was sad to see them cover the windows in the part by the bow where the anchor rode is stored and some mechanical stuff....we used to like seeing the crew working!!!
  11. It can change during your cruise and can depend on your cruise. That is why we get the SS package...you can have the wine you want IF it on the list by the glass!!!
  12. WOW I would love to be on a Viking Ship with 336 passengers!!! We are in the middle of trying to sell a house and moving or I would be cruising RIGHT NOW!!! Even our poor sailboat thinks we have abandoned her this summer! Word to the wise....moving is not for the faint of heart!!! We have been in this house for 39 years, not sure why I thought I needed to change that!
  13. Mini bar will not stock special cocktails or or up graded wines but if all you want is a simple mixed drink you should be fine and you can carry it with you anywhere on the ship. I like trying the different cocktails and having an after dinner drink while watching the evening show!
  14. I am too lazy to comb through all recent posts so I think I will have a Negroni and ask those of you up here in the LOUNGE. What is MDR like on the "Welcome Back Cruises"? Were reservations mandatory or with set times and table mates?
