  1. My husband was stationed in Fairbanks in the late 60's, and he would very much like to go back to see how it's changed. Since Viking does not have cruisetours like some of the other cruise lines, does anyone know of a tour company that does the land tours the way, for example, Princess does...part bus, part railway with the glass dome, from Anchorage to Denali to Fairbanks?
  2. Great advice, everyone! I've just ordered the Apple / SD card cable and will definitely be taking at least six SD cards.
  3. Thank you so much, Coral! That sounds like it fits the bill. Will definitely look further into it.
  4. Thank you all for the recommendations. I'm going to look into each of these.
  5. This is what I'm looking for: An Alaskan cruise followed by a land tour that ends in Fairbanks, as my husband was stationed there in the 60's and he wants to see it now. Must include Glacier Bay. I've been on a Celebrity cruise that did Hubbard Glacier, so I'd much prefer Glacier Bay. I've been on Viking, Celebrity, Norwegian, Oceania, Carnival and Royal Caribbean, and I've found that I prefer the smaller ships...but I would not mind a larger ship if it went to Glacier Bay. This cruise would be in 2020.
  6. Aside from taking a laptop, what is the most reliable and compact way to backup photos from a smart card?
  7. Thank you Peregrina651. Your advice is very helpful!
  8. CCWineLover, my absolute favorite private tour in South America was in Stanley, Falklands. We went through Estancia Excursions to Volunteer Point. A long, bumpy ride in a 4-wheel drive vehicle was totally worth it when we arrived and were able to walk among thousands of King and Gentoo penguins and view them in their natural habitat.
  9. Thank you, Orangegurl and LunaSeaRetreat...that worked! How nuts is it that you get a message saying that the reservation cannot be made, but then you can make it!! Oh well, all's well that ends well. Thanks cmaasfamily...we have 8 more traveling companions who won't be able to make their dining arrangements until next week, so hopefully we will be able to get into the restaurants at the same time.
  10. We have a Penthouse Veranda booked for a May Empires of the Mediterranean cruise. As our dinner reservations became available today, I stayed up until midnight to book them. I tried to book Manfredi’s for dinner on day 3 of our cruise. Every time slot was taken between 6 and 8. So I tried all the other nights (except 1, where we were having dinner on our excursion), same time slots, and there were no availabilities. is this normal, or could there have been a glitch in the system? What good is being able to make 2 reservations at each specialty restaurant if you can’t make a single reservation at a decent time?
  11. Thank you OneSixtyToOne! That's very helpful.
  12. Looking at the deck diagram on the Viking website, there is a shaded area underneath the Deck 5 PV1 cabins. Is this an obstructed view?
  13. Thank you for the info, Cindy! We're all over that tour!!
