  1. Enjoyed your scopes, I agree with your assessment.And I hope you are enjoying married life.
  2. Good news Wine, beer, and soda is free flowing at dinner and lunch on Viking. While the pre cruise package is pricey, we felt it was a good value since it included transfers and tours and good hotels plus the move your bags such. The one bad thing about Viking they require payment is full 30 days after booking, so it you book a 2018 cruise you have to pay in full now. We never purchased a mix drink but I think the price is reasonable. We went the last week in May and it was hot and crowded already, going in the Spring or Fall you will have a cheaper rate and less crowds. We loved Paris a
  3. Really too bad, something that was free now is an upcharge, the all-access tour takes 3 to 4 hours and a bridge tour was less than an hour. I agree with Billy loyalty perks are over rated. Taking away perks is never a good PR measure.
  4. I have been on 4 river cruises - 3 Viking and 1 scenic. We enjoyed all the cruises. Scenic had two special dinners, one was for people staying on the third floor which was like a Chef's table and the other is a dinner serving the local flavor in our case it was French. Both can include air and transfers and one tour a day. Viking had some optional tours in the evening for a reasonable price. Scenic is truly all inclusive, Viking you pay for drinks outside of lunch and dinner. If you are doing Paris, Viking is not the line to use since their ships are too large to dock in Paris. Our May cr
  5. We were on the IOS, my husband went down the final night to pay the bill. When we returned there was a $12.28 charge for mini bar, which we were told was for the water we drank. Problem is we did not drink the water and as D+ members we had 6 bottles delivered free. Personally I drink the tap water. So my husband called and they removed the charge only for $12.....it is a minor point, but this seems to be a common problem of RCCL billing for water that no one uses.
  6. We go to a travel show each year. The US Passport services has a booth there manned by government officials, they suggest you do NOT bring a copy of your passport, since you are at greater risk of the passport being lost or stolen.
  7. We enjoyed ordering the full dining room menu to our suite. Also having the luggage valet makes traveling easier. We a'so had a nice suite reception.
  8. great review. We thought Kenzie was a very well behaved child.Glad you had a good time on the cruise.
