  1. I'm just starting to research Venice. For hotel information and ratings, I use Tripadvisor.com.
  2. Thanks for posting this. It"s very helpful.
  3. This was our experience also. I would definitely book Alla again if we have the chance. We loved the Faberge and the subway ride. Actually, we loved all of it. And the price difference compared to Viking made it even better.
  4. Viking’s dress code can be found on their website. Basically, it’s business casual, or whatever your interpretation of that is. On our Viking Homelands cruise, I wore slacks and a nice top every night, which seemed to be the norm. I didn’t see anyone dressed up. A few of the men wore a sport coat, but most did not.
  5. I also recently discovered JJill and I love the 'Pure Jill' pants. I just ordered my 3rd pair when I saw their 30% off sale. I wear a size 12 in pants and the medium fits perfectly. Unfortunately, I haven't found any tops that fit.
  6. Thanks for sharing the pictures. We are boarding the Ruby this Saturday for a Pacific Coastal cruise. Sent from my iPad using Forums
  7. I just found this list of the 100 best restaurants in Canada. There are several in Vancouver. I usually use Yelp for recommendations. http://canadas100best.com/canadas-100-best-restaurants-2017/
  8. I have one from Ulta that I bought years ago. I keep it in the original bubble wrap and box that it came in and it has survived many miles of travel. It's similar to this one -- http://www.ulta.com/black-diamond-cut-10x-mirror?productId=xlsImpprod4320075
  9. Two words, ladies -- Stein Mart. The selection online is so much more extensive than what I have seen in the store. I ordered four dresses and I'm keeping these two. I can return the others to my local store. https://ii.steinmart.com/fcgi-bin/iipsrv.fcgi?FIF=/images/steinmart/source/steinmart/products/62916762_001.tif&wid=570=&cvt=jpeg https://ii.steinmart.com/fcgi-bin/iipsrv.fcgi?FIF=/images/steinmart/source/steinmart/products/61416681_432.tif&wid=1000=&cvt=jpeg
  10. We have been on two Viking river cruises. Dinner dress is fairly casual. Most ladies wore slacks and a nice blouse or sweater. I did see the occasional skirt or dress, but not very often. If your excursion comes back late to the ship and you don't have time to change, it's not a problem. Many people wore the same clothes they wore during the day. Men generally wore casual slacks (like Dockers) and a shirt/sweater. Sent from my iPad using Forums
  11. Thanks for those pictures. This is something on my bucket list which I will soon be able to cross off. I'm a native southern Californian and I've been to SF many many times. I've even walked across the Golden Gate bridge. I'm looking forward to sailing under it!
  12. Sorry I don't know the answer. Make sure you select the tour in English, as they have several different languages to choose from. It's an excellent tour - enjoy!
  13. Thank you so much for your detailed review! And I love all the pictures. We are booked on this cruise in December 2017, going in the other direction. I'll stay tuned in here for the rest of your review. Sent from my iPad using Forums
  14. Good walking shoes are an absolute necessity on the viking Homelands cruise. There are cobblestones everywhere. We did lots of walking on most of our excursions. The good thing about that is that I didn't gain weight after eating all the delicious food on board. :D
