  1. They Listened to us! I just went on Lindblad’s website and they have changed the maps from "uncluttered, modern, sexy, state of the art, wonderful graphic expression" ones back to “normal” and useful cruise itinerary maps.
  2. But, since you must reserve well in advance, before the cruise, I want to choose broadly what I want to "pay" for!
  3. Is there a way to know what the menu/region/cuisine will be on which days in the Chef’s Table in advance on a certain day/days for my cruise this December??
  4. You might look at the reviews on the website...
  5. While I see pre-cruise, shore-ex, on the myviking, no mention of post cruise to airport. Is it offered???
  6. Oops. I thought I was in the Iceland thread. I am referring to the current round trip Iceland cruises.

  8. Take a look at an itinerary on the updated Lindblad website. New map styles for each itinerary. A rough outline of the area, a white line showing the ship’s route, and numbers where stops are. No names of islands, seas cities countries! New, uncluttered, modern, sexy, state of the art, wonderful graphic expression, USELESS AS A MAP! Lindblad cruisers want to see and understand where they might go. Clear maps with appropriate detail of the surroundings. What islands might you see or be near? What other cities might you see or be near? What mountains, parks, rivers, sights of interest might be near the ports? They weren’t broken and Lindblad fixed them!
  9. How many passengers? I hate huge ships ever since a long cruise on the Enterprise!
  10. Now I am even more confused. The protocol website does not say what kind of test? A "Rapid-test taken by ACL at the ship prior to boarding" would be fine. But do I need to take the test myself? How do I find out which kind of test???? The website says nothing.
  11. Was a pre-boarding COVID-19 test required? Their web site (https://www.americancruiselines.com/account/covid-19-operating-protocol ) says, "...But at a minimum will include the requirement for a negative COVID-19 test result. " and "Fully vaccinated guests are not required to obtain a COVID-19 test prior to travelling to the ship and will be asked to present proof of the vaccine ..." ??????????????????????????? Sorry, This is a repost. I posted this to the wrong topic and can't figure out how to cancel...

  13. Where does the American Constitution Dock in Boston? I am confused as the American Cruise Lines website says “Boston/Charlestown.” Which is it? The main cruise port in Boston is Black Falcon Cruise Terminal, but that is NOT in Charlestown. ???
  14. My wife and I got back from a Baja whale cruise with Lindblad in February. · The purpose of the cruise is gray whales, gray whales, and then more gray whales. · You get gray whales, gray whales and more gray whales. Oh, and some visits to local, undeveloped islands to look at flora and fauna. · On the Zodiacs, or the local Pangas, while out whale watching you might see 5 whales blowing, spy hopping, or breaching AT THE SAME TIME. They estimate there might be 250-300 in the areas where you are watching. · No promises, but I you might well get a chance to “pet” a whale and perhaps get a whale mite on your finger (Don’t worry, we do not taste good to whale mites.) · The cabins are really, really, tiny, but functional and kept clean. · The food is good, basic, although sometimes not hot enough for my tastes. Lots of fresh local fish. · Naturalists and staff are excellent and have a deep and profound knowledge of whales, other local sea life, and the area. · The ship and crew are American and it the Stars and Stripes are on the fantail. · Finally, with apologies to Alfred, Lord Tennyson, · Whales to right of them, · Whales to left of them, · Whales in front of them, · Into the sea of the whales they rode.
