  1. That is a creative and interesting solution to the question of turning the cabins around for the next cruise. For those of us sailing on June 26, it may be an easier process since the ship will have been in port since 8:00 AM, June 24 according to whatsinport.com. Suites may all be ready when we arrive. Time will tell.
  2. Go to a live chat or call Viking and inform the rep. It will be added to your Viking invoice, but there will be no charge. You will get an updated invoice to show it has been recorded. I informed Viking on a previous cruise. Didn’t get updated invoice as I did this time, but we found a nice cake and bottle of champagne in our stateroom. Enjoyed sharing with the 2 other couples we were traveling with.
  3. You can indicate some preferences on MVJ, Onboard Experience, You can indicate some preferences on MVJ, Onboard Experience, Preferences, Stateroom Preferences; however, mattresses are not listed there. I’d suggest doing a live chat with a rep. That’s how I was able to inform the ship of some special dates—anniversary and birthday—on our cruise.
  4. I see the many messages expressing frustration. Totally understandable. I’ve been lucky. Made dinner reservations with no problem and got in for shoreX reservations without much hassle. MVJ works for me and calendar shows all activities. Still many have huge problems. Our last cruise was VR Danube, Nov 2019. Low water caused a ship swap midway. Shortly after we got home we received a $500pp voucher for the inconvenience. Perhaps Viking will do the same for all this confusion. (Hoping!) There will be many vouchers issued if they do! The one hiccup is they are usually good for new bookings on
  5. As I read the document, we will be tested upon arrival at the airport by the Iceland government. Like you I hope that will change by June 26. Here’s to dancing on June 15 🕺 🙂‼️
  6. I received a Viking email today with “Important Travel Requirements.” this is copied from the message: Pre-Cruise Timeline Summary: 1. At least 14 days prior to departure, be fully vaccinated with a FDA/WHO approved COVID-19 vaccine. 2. 72 hours prior to departure, fill out a pre-registration form for visiting Iceland. 3. When you travel—be prepared to show proof of your vaccination and valid passport. I see nothing about bringing proof of a negative Covid test with you.
  7. If you haven’t found this already, Covid travel information is quite good at bringbacktravel.com you can select information by country.
  8. Health questionnaire can be found on MVJ under Guest Information, Health Questionnaire tab. Says it will be available 7 days prior to the cruise.
  9. We are now one step closer to Viking’s Iceland’s Natural Beauty, 26 June sailing. I’m checking in on MVJ using the Guest Information, Comfort Check-In tab. Be aware you will be asked to upload a photo. It’s becoming more and more real each day!! 29 days to go. 🛫🛳‼️
  10. You can find a bar beverage menu on the Viking page, just takes some poking around. Usually around 3 drinks will make it worth the cost. Remember you must purchase the SS package for both travelers in the suite, so that is 3 drinks apiece. Really not hard to do. Each of you have a double Bailey’s before or after dinner and you are 2/3 there. Have a special wine at dinner, another cocktail before or after and you are ahead of the game.
  11. The early bookings when the Welcome Back cruises were first announced did not include the SS package. But the cruise fare was lower then. Advice from my college days, “ There are no free lunches.”
  12. Travel materials for 26 June sailing arrived in the mail today!! It’s official now!!
