  1. Thank you all for your wonderful help. We have decided to take the leap of faith and go for it. It is truly a blessing to have this message board to gather information in order to make a choice. 🤗
  2. My, my Kathy. I am really impressed by your ability to spell the places you visited! I wouldn't even attempt to pronounce the "O" city you refer to, let alone recall its spelling. Thank you to my fellow travelers for responding and giving me the encouragement to make the decision to add Macchu Picchu. My husband and I have invested in a treadmill to begin building our muscles up so we can withstand walking for long periods under strenuous circumstances - being in the North, outdoor walking is tricky and I prefer the warmth of the home. Happy sailing.🥰
  3. We have been told that we will have a problem with breathing, and altitude sickness. what was your experiences? Other travelmates as well?
  4. So, we are pretty much sold on the smaller ship. Celebrity Xploration would be our choice because they include Quito and will arrange everything. Also, we are long time celebrity cruisers and prefer them. The choice now is Northern loop or southern loop. Any thoughts?
  5. My husband and I are 70 years old, in fairly good physical health. We are now planning a cruise on Celebrity Xploration and are undecided about selecting the add-on for Machu Pichu. Also, what were some of your experiences on which "loop" to choose. We are considering, strongly, the southern loop. We will not be snorkeling or scuba diving. Also, what time of year is ideal? We have done some research and came to the conclusion that March would be best. Any thoughts on that? Thanks for any suggestions, comments both good and bad. We believe in taking advantage of other people's experiences. 😉
  6. My family, including my husband and I are interested in traveling to the Galapogos Islands on a catamaran. Any suggestions?
  7. Thank you for your explanation of the anchors on the invoice. We are showing only two ports anchored for the August sailing. You are indeed a god send to some of us who have never traveled on Viking before. It helps tremendously.
  8. Would you be so kind as to list the ports that are tendered. I can't figure it out from Viking paperwork. Thank you.
  9. I don't remember if I asked already 😕, how is the internet speed? Thanks.
  10. My hubby and I will be traveling on August 1. This is our first Viking Ocean Cruise. We look forward to your travelogue. Thank you for sharing with us.
  11. When are excursions posted? Will we have to schedule them? Are there choices for each port? We are going to Norway/Iceland in August.
