As I write this, we nonetheless have 5 extra sleeps left with Viking Cruises on board the stunning Viking Sky. This is able to be time to reply some reader questions. Let’s soar proper in.

Roger C from Tulsa asks “Is there any benefit to reserving on board, whereas crusing?”

Sure, certainly, Roger. Guide onboard and luxuriate in:

  • Lowered Deposit of $25 per particular person
  • $100 per particular person onboard credit score

  • Capacity to switch reserving to your journey agent who will look over it between deposit and crusing.

James B from Orlando asks: “How is the web? Quick? Sluggish?

First, it’s free. I believe we must always dwell on that thought for a second. No packages to select from, reductions for getting it prematurely or blocked websites one may must verify in with (or ship brag pictures to) these at dwelling. Viking notes proper up entrance that they use a satellite tv for pc based mostly Web connection which may and can range in velocity and availability. In the event you actually actually actually need to remain in contact or be reached, telephone calls might be created from the ship, assuming you haven’t heard of mobile telephones. They’re cool. Be cool. Deliver one. I write for this web site every single day we’re touring. It really works advantageous. Numerous inappropriate moaning on message boards about this subject.

“What if a tour is offered out?” asks Sal Z including “Do you e-book with tour operators as an alternative of reserving by means of MyVikiingJourney.com?”

Me? By no means. There are distinct benefits of reserving by means of Viking both prematurely (advisable) or on the ship. These benefits embody:

  • In case your tour is canceled, Viking routinely refunds what you paid. Outdoors distributors drag their toes.
  • Shore Excursions designed to showcase the locations you dreamed about are only one a part of the Viking expertise choreography. Different parts embody a each day crimson and white wine that change, reflecting the locations we go to.
  • Viking tour costs are consistent with everybody else.
  • Viking has most well-liked positioning in most ports of name. Not as far of a stroll to get to your tour. This one is big for vacationers with mobility points to think about.
  • There is no such thing as a cost for visits to the medical heart. I paid $$$$tons for a go to on a giant ship cruise.
  • No children- we put in our time on youngsters operating up and down cruise ship hallways at 3AM and can cross on that now thanks.

Jim R from Denver asks “Did you utilize Viking Air or e-book your individual?”

Nicely, they have been providing free worldwide air, so sure, we did. As a result of we had Viking Air Plus. That $150 per particular person Air Plus payment covers so much and gives the pliability you might want throughout instances when air journey is doing wacky issues. Like proper now. It’s the primary query you can be requested if calling Viking about your air drawback in transit. If the flight is delayed or cancelled, Viking will get us to the ship asap, which can be at a cease down the road on the itinerary.

As I write this, we’re docked within the Scottish port of Scrabster. A small port of name, there may be one tour supplied in the present day, the included overview tour, which was fairly in depth. We just like the native guides that Viking makes use of at every vacation spot, persevering with the deal with the place we go to and the way these locations relate to your entire theme of the crusing. On this case, the northernmost place in Nice Britain, one other cease on our British Isles Explorer crusing.
