  1. I look at bus site. If we walk up to QVB we can get on the 442 line direct to terminal. Short walk for one of the stops.
  2. Staying in downtown district for a week prior to cruise out of White Bay.....what is the fastest , cheapest way to get there. Uber taxi ferry bus????
  3. Doing third cruise in Dec with Viking. Before, we just let them make air arrangements and they where great. Question .......at the 75 day mark where air arrangements are make and not to our liking , can we cancel those , pay the 50/person and then request what we want. We need to get from West Coast to Amsterdam, and many flights have stops. From our city there is a Non stop and would prefer that obviously. Would one assume that's what Viking would offer initially???
  4. Know it's early , but can't fine previous posts. Is anyone interested or book on this cruise.
  5. Same here....after years of getting to Elite plus, now anyone can just buy the benefits. Why should we technically double pay for a coffee/ drink etc. We have moved to Viking Ocean, Far superior and within the same price range.
  6. Well stated. Elite Plus and now just a solid Viking Ocean convert.
  7. We where on the 29 run in Dec doing Santiago to LA. We have also done a previous 24 day run in the Caribbean with Viking...…..Totally sold. Background is we have done 105 cruise on ALL the major lines. Diamond plus...Elite Plus and every other category you can think. We have also done about 6 Crystal and Regent cruises and the bottom line is "bang for buck" no one can beat Viking for service , quality and amenities.
  8. Elite plus member doing first Edge run. First time in IV. Best location . Deck 6-9. Do beds alternate like the Solstice class.
  9. Suggest to just print out the Viking policy and when booking state you have copy of the guidelines and expect that as OBC or check upon return.
  10. We always gets the TA allowable OBC, but just have them send us a check direct to house upon return. Becomes part of next cruise deposit. When one gets that little white paper on the your door morning of disembarkation the only fee is the gratuities. I would just like to walk off owning nothing, knowing that is was paid upfront.
  11. Change of content. Having done several Viking runs and over 100 + other cruises, I feel Viking should just raise tariff and INCLUDED gratuities like most other premium/luxury lines ie Crystal/ Regent etc. I have put this on every post cruise sailing comment card with no answer. Do others agree.
  12. Never rely on Viking website for any deals. I normally use Price Alerts under Cruise Critic and I also use a website that allows TA's to offer prices on deals then have under group space or FAM fares. (Assured I can't post the name but google the answer.). I then use 3 TA's that I done business with to offer the best deal they can. Usually some will cut into there commission.
  13. On the Sun presently. Valparaiso to LA. Having done previous Viking cruises, first we find the food actually better than past cruises. As for last minute deals. They definably do exist. We paid 186/pp/der day for this cruise and in a DV 6 cabin. Had free air and transfers and have free pre paid gratuities by agent with 600 credit on receipt once back home. One just needs to look for last minute deals. At time of booking we had over a dozen cabins on all floors to choose from.
  14. I would still try. I have literally done this a dozen times without fail!!!!
