  1. Hope you mke it aboard and the ship does not leave without you. I remember when you were first looking at this cruise. Enjoy and please post during your cruise. And you are sailing Jim Avery, that will be very cool. Say hi to Jack Patti 💕
  2. Thank you for your detailed review of your family cruise to Greece aboard the Constellation. I love the M class ships and have sailed the Connie three times in Eastern Med. I always loved eating in the main dining room with great food. it is sad that the cutbacks in staff makes others work harder and longer shifts on board. You are so right about walking hazards anywhere in Europe and the crowds during the summer. We too walked down the donkey trail on Santorini . It was September and still in the 90's and saw some older folks take terrible falls. And I am older.! What a great gift you have given your boys with this cruise and trip . The best part for me is also meeting folks from all over the world. I have only cruised in Europe, with one short Caribbean cruise ( which was totally diffrent vibe) , and love the international favor of the passengers and their interest in travel worldwide.
  3. An overnight at St. Maartin sounds like a good alternative. BTW, let us know how the hurricane recovery has gone after one year+.
  4. ebtrip. I hope you post your feedback about the cruise when you are on board in April. I have bookmarked this cruise. I love the idea of another canel and three ports in Denmark.
  5. I want to do a cruise that stops in Denmark, but do not want to go to Russia. Trying to figure out a cruise with my sister who is a school teacher so can only cruise in June or July. Or try to fit in a cruise in the Carribbean with her during one of her week breaks. It is complicated. I could find a friend to cruise with and go anytime, if all else fails.
  6. Thank you for your detailed review as an experienced Viking cruiser. I hope to book my second Viking cruise this year. In the meantime ,I love reading the Viking forum.
  7. I loved reading the posts from the first WC and a couple of blogs folks kept too. Now SantaFe1 you will be on board posting here, not from your armchair at home. So happy for you and all WC's that you all took the plunge and are doing a world cruise.
  8. I agree with the writer's review in every aspect. Viking Ocean cruises adn their ships are exactly what I had been looking for. I used to think sea days were a waste of time. Not when in a Viking ship. I loved my 8 sea days on my 2018 Transatlantic. Will book another Vinkg cruise in 2019.
  9. Great live review and loved your pictures.. thank you for taking us along your adventure. As a first time cruiser, do you like cruising? Have you book your second cruise?
  10. Glad you and your TA worked out the Quantas air flights. i agree with others about trveling with others and booking excursions together. have the conversation bwfore you all book. Merry Crhistmas and Happy New Year. My vent is where is the live blog or live report of the next World Cruise folks for 2019? I so miss reading about their adventures.
  11. Just finished talking to my friends Jim and Louise ,who are on your roll call and on this cruise. I have sailed with them before on Celebrity ships. They are great fun. Look forward to your live blog and your experiences as a first time cruiser. Cheers!

    sparkling wine

    Thanks for the tip. I love sparkling wine of any kind. My favorite is Cava which Viking does not have on its ships.☚ī¸

    On my 15 Ta VO cruise in 2018 ,we had seafood of all kinds. The lobster served in MDR was not the tiny rock tail kind. These were huge. Very tasty and not rubberly or dry. The variiety of seafood served in the buffet each night was great. They had a sea food grill set up on the outside deck one evening with grilled fish.
  14. You certainly can book a fall Viking cruise in the Srping of 2019. Not every sailing in the Med will be sold out. As a past cruiser you will get $200. per person if you book within one year of your previous sailing. Also sign up for the VO email. I have seen some deals:reduced price of certain categories or reduced airfare in these emails Some of these deals are for saling only month in advance. Also book through a travela gent to get some addtional OBC. Good luck and keep track of your favorite Viking cruise for the fall of 2019 until you are eady to book.
  15. Thank you for your detailed review. I share you feeling of elegance throughout the ship. I never sat on all the various types of chairs and couches they had. And I was on a 15 day TA cruise with 8 sea days!
