  1. I have a cruise scheduled for next year on the Viking Venus. Is the Venus going to be completed on time with all of the issues currently going on?
  2. OK, I know that nobody has seen Venus - she is still fitting out at Fincantieri. But I am curious to know if any features of Star fell by the wayside as the VO line was built, or perhaps if newer ships have features not found on Star. "Asking for a friend."
  3. (12:35 p.m. EDT) – Despite shipyard slowdowns related to the current COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic, Italy's Finantieri shipyard has successfully floated out Viking's newest oceangoing cruise ship, Viking Venus, at its yard in Ancona. Viking Venus will be the seventh oceangoing cruise ship for Viking since the debut of Viking Star in 2015. The ... View the full article
  4. I'm considering booking a Viking Homelands cruise for 2021, and my dates work for either the original Viking Star, or the brand new Viking Venus. I haven't been on a Viking cruise before, but it looks like all the ships are fairly similar. Does anyone believe it's worth paying a couple grand extra for the new Venus? Is the Star aging well? I plan on booking a Penthouse Jr Suite if that makes any difference.
  5. Thanks to Peregrina651 for posting this information, for those of us with a vested interest in the maiden voyage it looks like we now have an indication of when that is likely to be, as of yet none of these dates have been posted on Viking's UK web site Thanks for the heads up! I managed to find also the reposition cruise of the Venus from Barcelona to London on Jan 26, 2021.
  6. We are on the Viking Jupiter in South America. We attended a feature today by the resident Astronomer, Dr. Raymond Arvidson. He is quite distinguished and has been on many Viking cruises as resident astronomer. Speaking with him before the show today, we were discussing the planetarium - its functionality and use. He let us know that it is his understanding that only the Jupiter and Orion will have the Planetarium. Specifically, the Venus and future ships will NOT have the planetarium implemented. It apparently is proving to be just too costly for the benefits received. As such, the Planetarium shows will only be available on the Jupiter and Orion(which is primarily the Far East, Australia/NZ, Alaska). This makes sense to us, as perhaps the concept was good, but the implementation was lacking somewhere, and it certainly took away a lot of space in the Explorer's Lounge.
  7. We will be doing the Mediterranean Odyssey in October 2021. Any input from those that have done this itinerary, suggested optionql tours, quality of the included yours,etc. would be appreciated. Thanks in advance. Michael
  8. Will they not do this until the ship has its inaugural sailing in 2021? Just wondering, being that there are roll calls out that far for other ships.
  9. Since Viking Venus is filling up for 2021 In Search of the Northern Lights cruises why is there no option under Roll Calls for this ship? We are on the February 2 cruise out of London.
  10. I am a complete stranger to Viking Ocean, and would like to hear personal experiences with these cabins on cruises. Noise, access, etc. We are looking at the maiden cruise on 26 January 2021 B2B with the Northern Lights cruise on 2 February, so we would have plenty of cabin time.
