  1. Just booked this cabin. We prefer aft cabins but not many choices available. Appreciate comments from those of you who have stayed in on Deck 8. TIA.
  2. Looking into 2021 Sky cruise only cabins available are dv4 cabins 4080 & 4082. Please, are their any obstructions or problems with this deck 4 location, aft port side?
  3. Just boarded Viking Sky in Miami for the 14 night transatlantic to Barcelona. I’m going to be posting in my blog (link in my signature) but will post The Viking Daily here and anything else of interest. If anyone has any questions just let me know. Embarkation was a breeze. Absolutely no line at checkin when we arrived at 12:40. There were at least five folks in red scarves begging us to come to their station. The medical questionnaire included questions about visiting Asia or Italy and then a nurse checked our temperatures.
  4. The Sky has been sitting off Fort Lauderdale beach for a few days now. Here’s a photo of her from my condo about two miles south of where she sits.
  5. My husband and I were on the March 2-14 Northern Lights cruise on the Sky. We've followed the stories of the problems and rescue of the passengers and crew of the next cruise. Because we were doing this cruise, I began following several other roll calls to get ideas and share information with others, especially since this was the first year for this route. The way Viking has handled the aftermath is really impressive. I wanted to start this thread because what passengers are posting on the March 14 roll call makes me love Viking even more. The reimbursement of passengers has been total and really very prompt. My hope is that some of you who were on the ship will share the information of the follow-up by Viking with the larger cruise community. Glad that you are all home now and recovering from your amazing adventure.
  6. Viking Sky has been noticeably missing multiple ports on its recent 7-day cruises out of Miami. Also, she seems to be making progress at less than normal speed. Is the Sky having propulsion problems?
  7. Just got notified of an upgrade on Viking Sky from Deluxe Veranda 4055 to Penthouse Veranda 6076. Checked the deck plans and saw that 6076 is right below the World Cafe! I called Viking to say I wanted to keep my original cabin, but the rep said 6076 will hear no noise from above - completely soundproof. Can anyone on here advise me about that? Also, will we potentially feel more motion in 6076 than 4055? 6076 is supposed to be bigger than 4055. Please help me decide what to do. Thanks!
  8. The buffet has a bar at the front and then an alfresco dining area. Does the bar and alfresco remain open all day for drinks and relaxing.?
  9. Having a wonderful time on Viking Sky. I have already written a post regarding this ship and our excursions for the first 5 days of our trip on June 8th roll call starting at page 6. I tried my best to paste below if you are interested in reading that and will continue my posts on this forum going forward per CC members request. . If you have any questions I will try to respond. We have just left Seydisfjordour which was beautiful and quaint. We just walked around the town, cute little quirky shops. I would not waste your time taking the included tour in this town since it is simply walking around town with a large group and guide, you can do it on your own very easily. We were very lucky, the weather was beautiful , we were able to eat outside for breakfast and lunch. Temps have been in 60’s and sunny. Unfortunately they have just just informed us that we are skipping Torshavn, Faroe Islands due to rough seas, so they are extending the days at sea to 2 in a row and adding a stop in olden Norway with a cruise of the Norwegian fjords . So little disappointed missing the islands, but as long as we got to see all of Iceland with great weather, I am quite satisfied with the captains decision. Will post later, again if you have any questions, I will try to answer.
  10. Viking Sky in bad weather is adrift off Norway. https://www.euronews.com/2019/03/23/cruise-ship-adrift-off-norway-to-evacuate-1300-passengers Here are some screen shots from Marine Traffic showing details and it's current position. Current time on scene is 1600 hours.
  11. Hi Everyone, We sail in February. We didn't really pick this itinerary. We were due to go to Cuba but were offered this instead. Would anyone happen to know if there are people hanging about the port that could take us to a beach nearby for Belize, Cozumel, Merida ( Mexico)? Honestly, I don't feel like doing any of the excursions - just want to go to the beach and swim and be a bum 🙂 Please advise. Thanks in Advance, Eliz
  12. I'm surprised that the Viking Sky "parked" in Ashdod today, given the rocket attacks. Here's a hope that the ship and all passengers and crew remain safe.
  13. We are headed to return to the Viking Sky on Dec 16. Does anyone have a list of the current staff onboard? Especially curious about the Cruise Director and band (that plays nightly in Torshavn
  14. We are currently onboard the Viking Sky enjoying Trade Routes of the Middle Ages. It’s a sea day today, and I’d be happy to answer questions or seek out information if anyone has something specific to ask. We are first time Ocean folks, so it’s all a wonderful new adventure for us.
  15. We have just received an email from Viking asking if we are prepared to register, confidentially, for a survey on behalf of the Accident Investigation Bureau of Norway, they would like to survey guests as they complete their investigation.
  16. My parents are sailing on the Viking Sky from Barcelona on October 30. They're starting to take note of the riots in Barcelona and the rest of Catalonia, and are, understandably, getting concerned about their pre-cruise arrival time as well as the cruise itself being disrupted. I suggested they start to think about Madrid or Valencia before the cruise and then just get to the port via driver on the day of. They have trip insurance, but they believe political disruptions are not covered. Has anyone spoken to Viking about this situation, or have there been other posts about this on other boards? Anyone been through something like this before? Any other suggestions? Thank you.
  17. Hello. Does anyone have photos to share of either cabin 6020 or 6021 on the Viking Sky, they’re ADA Penthouse Jr Suites. Thanks in advance. Sent from my iPad using Forums
  18. We have a “hold” on Viking Sky cabin 3041 till Wed. (2 days from now) on a 7-day Caribbean cruise. I had told the Viking sales rep that I wanted a cabin that was mid-ship and that had cabins on the deck above us, so that our cabin would be quiet. He assigned us a cabin on Deck 3, and when I looked at the ship’s deck plan, I see that Deck 2 has a shop, a piano bar, an atrium, a promenade, and a restaurant! So, I fear that there will be potentially lots of noise below us. The sales rep had told me that cabin 3041 was near a lift, but that should not pose a noise problem. Can anyone advise me about Deck 3 and the issues I’ve raised? Thank you!
  19. Did Viking do renovations to the ship during its repairs? Specifically, do the DV closets now have the 3 drawers similar to DV closets on the Viking Orion, or is it still just the 3 drawers under the safe and none in the closet?
  20. We are considering booking a cabin on the Viking Sky, cabin number 8106. I am concerned about a couple of possible noise factors and hope someone can give me some advice. This cabin is directly under the sports deck, so I am concerned about hearing pounding feet early in the morning. The other concern is that the fairly short hallway where 8106 is located leads to the upper entrance of the Explorer's Lounge. I don't know what to expect regarding likely noisy late nighters. Does anyone have something to say about either of my concerns? Thanks, Susan
  21. I'm thinking not but then I read something about only being able to eat in some of them once during a cruise (?)
  22. We will be on the July 21 cruise leaving from Copenhagen. I have assumed that there was only self-serve laundry service but I just read a post about the problem with the laundry stickers. So, is there laundry service and, if so, what are the prices like? Is there a laundry package which includes unlimited laundry service. I had this with Windstar and loved it.
  23. Ha anyone stayed in a forward Explorer suite on the Viking Sky? If so, was there noise from the Bridge located above #5000 or #5001 or other passengers above #4000 or 4001?
  24. I guess I should have seen this coming (and yet was kind of hoping it wouldn't)...will certainly be interesting to see how it plays out. https://abcnews.go.com/International/viking-cruises-faces-class-action-lawsuit-high-seas/story?id=62926477
  25. The tragedy of the Titanic put aside, it would really be interesting to know whether or not there have been other instances in recent history where cruise ships have either issued a mayday and/or been evacuated by helicopter. I did various types of searches on this but all that comes up is the Sky. Then I looked up 'cruise ships in bad storms', etc. and of course lots of different events show up, most recently the Royal Caribbean 'Anthem' that was in the hurricane. Still, can't help but wonder if this event qualifies as being unique. I'm betting that the mix of factors involved probably is - not so much just rough seas and wind, but can't help but wonder if the combination (at least partly) of the cyclone, loss of engines, and then drifting perilously close to a rocky coast might indeed be a one-of-a-kind situation.
