  1. You typed too fast for me... 😁
  2. To see the actual times, you will need to book the cruise, so to speak. You can have your TA book a cabin with a 72 hour complimentary hold with no deposit required and you will receive an invoice showing the port times. If it does not meet your satisfaction, cancel the booking, no harm, no foul.
  3. Not sure I understand 🙄
  4. I can only speak for PV cabins, as that is the only category we have been in, but there has always been a heavy duty felted tote type bag in the cabin with magazines in it. It is about the size of a paper grocery bag with handles and we have used it for transport of laundry.
  5. We have only booked GTY cabins on Viking and have never had any issues. 50% of the time, we have been upgraded, although never above the basic category we booked (e.g. PV3 to PV1). Never disappointed and always knew our cabin number before leaving the house.
  6. While soliciting for a roommate may be against CC guidelines, I don't read the OP post as an ad looking for a roommate. I read it as asking where or how to look for a roommate. Just my opinion.
  7. Not absolutely sure, but I think the confiscation criteria is if the item has "surge protection" built in. Apparently they consider it a potential fire hazard.
  8. Not a hater, but you can ask for anything, they might not be able to fulfill your wishes, but at least you tried. I definitely have a pillow issue, both allergy and firmness. I always ask at any hotel, etc. when the pillows are not going to result in a good night sleep (typically the first thing I check when entering a room). Usually they are able to accommodate my wishes, even at bargain hotel chains. You can also ask for different bedding (extra pillows, blankets, sheets, more or less), extra shampoo, soap, hangers, …...
  9. Yes, I can't speak to Waves as I have only been on an R ship and Waves grill was never been open for breakfast on my sailing, only pastries, fruit and such.
  10. If you want freshly scrambled eggs, all you have to do is ask at the omelet station.

    TV in cabin

    Agree with rallydave. However, on the ships that have the new TV systems, the on demand movie/tv show selection is quite extensive and you should have no problem finding something that you would enjoy.
  12. When your booking window opens you will be able to see the Chef's Table menu for each day of your cruise and make your decisions at that time.
  13. I appreciate your comments, but having grown up in Tennessee, I have to comment that Jack Daniels is not bourbon, it is Tennessee Whiskey 😀. I have found the same in my travels in Europe and I am very partial to JD. As a side note, being frugal throughout my life is what has enabled me to travel now as I would like, hard to break old habits. That's the point, trying to avoid "hoop jumping". I am retired with time to search the internet and research upcoming travel, thus avoiding hoops before they are in my path. Alternatively, I could be spending my time looking into Alien Abductions. I think looking to save a few $ on an upcoming journey more productive. In this case, I have determined the best approach and most cost effective method based on the GOOD information I received from other posters on this thread. Thanks to all that provided the requested info.
  14. Yes, and in the context of what all is going on in the world today, probably 100% of the postings on this forum is "overthinking". Thank you for your insight on the topic I posted.
  15. Thanks, given that, it comes out to $18.76 per liter of Jack Daniels at 80 proof (40% alcohol) and would save just under $8.00 a liter. Just need to decide if its worth dealing with the extra two to save $15+, but definitely worth bringing in my allotted 2 liters for us.
