  1. We did a snorkeling tour through Viking on a cruise last fall. The catamaran was a local company, we had about 25 people.only indoor space was a very small bathroom. The boat was The Castaway Girl in St. Thomas.
  2. As long as we are discussing Rome, I am curious about Viking’s pre cruise extension. Our cruise starts, we are flying in a couple days early because we have never visited Rome before. If all flights go as planned, we arrive at 9:00 a.m. and will be transferred to the hotel before setting off to discover our highlights. We will enjoy another whole day on our own before transferring to the ship. What can we expect on that transfer day? Any sightseeing / panoramic tour from the motor coach?
  3. Google Viking Voyager App It shows a blue Viking ship.
  4. Here’s a detailed review from a fellow passenger. I don’t recall if the Fjords/crab excursion was offered in April 2018. We met with family in Bergen.
  5. What are the current offers for booking onboard?
  6. We enjoyed a delightful trip, enhanced by the rum punch!
  7. We did the NYC to San Juan Cruise in 2018. It was a last minute deal decision so didn’t have a lot of time to plan the excursions. The included Viking tours were underwhelming, I would recommend booking your own adventures.
  8. We had a similar situation during the Explorer Sale in October, 2018. Our TA talked to Viking and got an OBC. Could have saved more by canceling and rebooking, but stayed with our original reservation.
  9. https://www.vikingcruises.com/oceans/my-trip/current-sailings/index.html update on Viking website
  10. We were also on the Oct 2018 sailing from NYC. The location of the ship was easy wLking distance to the Intrepid museum. We had an early flight and walked there after dropping our bags off.
  11. On the crossing in 2019, how were the seas? What activities did they offer during the ar sea days?
  12. Just got off the Sea yesterday in San Juan, Puerto Rico: Everyone received color coded luggage tags and a disembarkation letter a couple days prior to the end of the cruise. This cruise overnighted in San Juan. I will paraphrase. Preparing your luggage - Tagged luggage needed to be placed outside the cabin by 10:00 p.m. for the transfer to the cruise terminal. Any luggage not placed outside is your responsibility to transfer off the ship. Passports, medications, breakables and valuables should be kept in your possession or in your hand luggage. Vacating your Stateroom - all staterooms must be vacated before 8:00 a.m. Due to local requirements, all guests must disembark the vessel no later than 9:30 a.m. In our last Viking Daily, the disembarkation schedule was detailed by colored tag: All groups meet in Atrium on deck 1, gangway was on deck A. Aqua 1 4:45 a.m. Green 1 5:00 a.m. Orange 1 5:15 a.m. Red 1 5:45 a.m. Aqua 2 6:15 a.m. Green 2 6:45 a.m. Orange 2 7:15 a.m. Red 2 7:30 a.m. Aqua 3 8:00 a.m. Green 3 8:30 a.m. Purple 1 9:00 a.m. White 1 & 2 9:15 a.m. Black 1 At leisure, directly ashore from 5:00 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. (We had a late flight 3:38 p.m. and were in White 2.) Dining(breakfast) was offered: Room Service 24 hours Viking Bar 4:00 - 10:15 a.m. Mamsen’s 6:30 - 9:30 a.m. Aquavit Terrace - closed The Restaurant 7:00 - 9:00 a.m. World Cafe 5:00 - 9:00 a.m. Viking arranged a ship visitor pass after disembarkation. We were allowed to return to the ship and relax in the public areas until we were transferred to the airport at 12:30 p.m. The World Cafe and the Pool Grill were open for lunch at 11:30 a.m. The 9:30 disembarkation included: leaving the ship, retrieving our luggage from the color coded group, and processing thru U.S. customs, with nothing to declare and showing our US passports. Viking loaded the luggage onto a truck for transport to the airport. Once everyone was off the ship, we traded our passports for the visitor pass and returned to the ship, spending time in the Explorer’s Lounge, having a light luncheon at the near empty pool grill since most of the other visitors went to the World Cafe. It was interesting to watch the next group of cruisers arriving and wandering around in awe. Around 12:15, we were called from the Atrium for our final walk out the gangway, retrieved our passports and climbed on buses to the airport. Once we got to the airport, we retrieved our luggage which had already gone thru the USGA screening. Then proceeded to airline checkin, TSA security, etc. Overall and well executed process.
  13. You can download it early but it is only useful when connected to the ship’s WiFi. We find it to be a very useful, but not perfect app.
  14. It was offered on the last At Sea day of our 15 day cruise. We still have a week before disembarkation.
