  2. We haven't yet used Viking Air. Does that make it Custom Air, or Air Plus, or just a deviation fee? Personally, I think I'd rather customize the front end to be sure to get there a day early. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  3. I'd imagine getting flights through Viking Air might be problematic with separate cruises. It's not exactly like B2B cruises since one is Ocean and one is River. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  4. Pretty straightforward: you leave your clothes for your room attendant; they wash (press) and fold your clothes, and return them to your room 1-2 days later. And they don't charge you. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  5. They're calling it "book now, pay later". They're advertising it as a promotion. Hopefully they will make it permanent. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  6. That's understandable. It's definitely a hit to your free cash flow. For us it was worth it for the small ships and no kids, combined with an excellent itinerary and all of their inclusions. But yes, it was more $$$ and farther in advance. It seems they're backing off their 12 mo. advance payment policy, advertising it back to the 6 mo. that it used to be. Still farther out than other lines. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  7. For laundry, we picked up a mesh collapsible laundry basket at either Target or Walmart. It weighed next to nothing and collapsed to a disc maybe 7" in diameter and about a half inch thick. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  8. Viking's 930-pax ships are small, and their Midnight Sun cruise would check all the boxes for a western Norway, fjords plus Nordkapp cruise. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  9. That's the exact day trip that we did in Oslo this past June, except in reverse. It was a great day. Note the part about picking up the Oslo Pass, as this provides unlimited tram, bus, and ferry use, as well as entrance to the museums, included in the cost of the pass.

  10. I believe you get about the same amount of "window" area, because although the door is smaller than the slider, you have 2 windows - the door and a fixed window. An argument could be made that the fixed window gives a better view from the sofa, because rooms with a slider have a wall next to the sofa. Somewhere in one of these threads, someone posted pix of the two window configurations. Honestly, there's very little difference, and it's only a personal preference thing.

  11. Touchè. You're always so prepared with sincere, sage advice. I totally wasn't prepared for subtle sarcasm. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  12. The North Cape (Nordkapp) is quite a unique destination and experience. Talking to and learning from the locals who live there - through two and a half months of the Sun never setting, and two and a half months of it never rising (and the nearly impossible travel that time of year) - was quite fascinating. To be fair, I would have more enjoyed an ability to be at the North Cape looking due north at the Midnight Sun AT MIDNIGHT. Unfortunately, cruise lines don't concur. Still, the trip up beyond 71* North enabled us to have 4 days where the Sun never set, which was the main "bucket list" experience we'd wanted. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  13. Seriously?! You'd actually suggest that someone seriously consider cancelling a trans-Atlantic cruise because the Infinity Pool, which holds maybe a dozen people if you pack them in, is going to be unavailable due to a planned service? That would be like cancelling an international plane flight because the in-flight entertainment system won't have a specific movie. They could skip half the ports on a cruise and not be obligated to provide any compensation. They could have just not said anything in advance, and just notified pax once onboard: Sorry; it's out of service. I'm sorry, this is one of the most absurd points of discussion I've read here in a while. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  14. Yes, that's what we'd heard. Lake District appears to have a high number of rainy days per year. Still quite beautiful, though. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  15. We had a door. It was fine. The window location is aside the sofa, so (possibly) easier to see out when sitting there. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
