Your Questions Answered – Chris Cruises

As I write this, we nonetheless have 5 extra sleeps left with Viking Cruises on board the beautiful Viking Sky. This might be an excellent time to reply some reader questions. Let’s leap proper in.

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

Sure, certainly, Roger. Ebook onboard and revel in:

  • Decreased Deposit of $25 per individual
  • $100 per individual onboard credit score
  • Push the ultimate due date ahead, bringing 6 further months to pay
  • Potential 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 purchasing it upfront or blocked websites one may must test in with (or ship brag pictures to) these at residence. Viking notes proper up entrance that they use a satellite tv for pc based mostly Web connection which may and can range in pace and availability. Should you actually actually actually need to remain in contact or be reached, cellphone calls will be created from the ship, assuming you haven’t heard of mobile telephones. They’re cool. Be cool. Convey one. I write for this web site on daily basis we’re touring. It really works superb. Numerous inappropriate moaning on message boards about this subject.

“What if a tour is bought out?” asks Sal Z including “Do you e-book with tour operators as a substitute of reserving by means of”

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

  • In case your tour is canceled, Viking mechanically 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 components embody a each day crimson and white wine that change, reflecting the locations we go to.
  • Viking tour costs are in step 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 isn’t any cost for visits to the medical heart. I paid $$$$tons for a go to on an enormous ship cruise.
  • No children- we put in our time on kids operating up and down cruise ship hallways at 3AM and can cross on that now thanks.

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

Nicely, they had been providing free worldwide air, so sure, we did. As a result of we had Viking Air Plus. That $150 per individual Air Plus price covers lots and offers the flexibleness it’s possible you’ll want throughout occasions 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’s one tour supplied right now, 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 give attention to 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.
