  1. My Crystal Ball says my cruise In Search of the Northern Lights February 2, 2021 will be canceled. The starting date for booking shore excursions has come and gone, still no excursions listed, the starting date for making reservations for Specialty Dining and Spa Treatments for my level of cabin is today, and nothing is available. The final indicator will be November 19th, the date Viking is to purchase my airline tickets, if that does not happen I will be 100% sure that the trip is canceled. Also under current travel rules, Great Britain is requiring 14 day quarantine for folks arriving fr
  2. With other vendors, I have booked the cheapest available flight on Delta, and used my Delta credits to upgrade my ticket. You might want to check with Delta to see if they allow this practice when dealing with Flight Ease.
  3. Probably because it is a nice video from a great location at the Southern most town. I have been there, and thank you for the post it brought out some good memories.
  4. Viking has 7 ships, each ship carries 930 guests, the whole fleet carries 6,510 guests. Why are we discussing what happens on a ship with 7,000 guests??
  5. While I am sure the September 27th cruise out of Seattle to Auckland will be canceled, OP is incorrect in the statement that it was canceled in May. It is still being sold, and the final payment date is July 29th. My TA has been in contact with HAL weekly about this cruise as I am using various FCC's and Gift Cards for payment and we are working out the details so I get the most I can when it is canceled.
  6. Absolutely, I have 4 cruises booked in the next 10 months, for a total 53 days on the ships. hope they all do not get canceled.
  7. The numbers of passengers on HAL any given week is about 35,000. Do you truly believe that a couple of hundred of you posting about your unreal expectations on receiving your refunds, will motivate HAL to change their process, during this unprecedented outbreak of sickness?
  8. Several Ports have already reopened. https://www.cruisecritic.com/news/5319 https://www.cruisecritic.com/news/5097/
  9. Want to make your final payment closer to your embarkation date, just don't book the cruise until you are ready to make the final payment.
  10. Dave your really missing the point here. Your reply says nothing, just like the article. The fact that someone is considering something does not mean it is going to happen, nor does it mean it is not going to happen, all that it means is possibly something may or may not happen. There is no information in that article that would be of any use in planning future travel.
  11. Did anybody read the article? There are no definite decisions on what dates or what the procedures will be going forward, the article basically says nothing, except that at some unknown time travel will reopen with some unknown procedures.
  12. Already booked 3 cruises, 9/2020, 10/2020 and 2/2021. Hope they sail.
  13. Have a safe trip home and thank you for letting us cruise along with you. We had to cancel our Eurodam cruise to Hawaii from Seattle, Hopefully in the fall.
