    Upcoming Viking Cruise

    Many of you will recall the events of March 2019 when Viking Sky got into trouble off the Norwegian coast.

    As part of the compensation for that episode the Chairman of Viking, Torstein Hagen invited us all onto a Maiden voyage of a new ship, then covid hit!

    On Saturday we will be leaving Heathrow early and probably not bright to fly to Rome and join Viking Mars for her maiden voyage to Barcelona with stops in Sicily, Sardinia, Malta and Menorca

      Lovely to be joining a brand new ship John and the island itinerary looks nice. Hope you both have great weather and cruise and can hopefully post some photos of the ship.

      And most importantly….calm seas.

            I doubt many forumites have been In greater peril when on board a ship. Fortunately a great outcome for most (a few injuries aside).

            There should be a great feeling of camaraderie I suspect.

            Have a wonderful time. Simply an excellent cruise line with ships that hit the sweet spot in terms of size and space (for us at least).

              Hi John.
              Enjoy! Don’t miss the sail in to Mahon you can almost touch the shoreside villas as you glide past.
              Then prepare yourself for the many steps from the quay up to the town.

                    Have the most wonderful time John! Mahon is just lovely. It was the last port on our first cruise, and yes, those stairs are a killer, but the view is stunning. We are all looking forward to seeing your pictures and hearing all about it.

                    Take care. Helen🛳🥂

                      My memory of Mahon is...shoes. I went a few times as a teen, with my parents and started my love of shoes there. Darn it.

                      Have wonderful holiday on Viking, John, and fingers crossed the engineering holds out!

                        Have a great time you are owed that ,John .
                        Sure way if avoiding the troublesome weather from last time too 😀
                        In Mahon, I recommend the Gin but I'm guessing you know about that already..

                          Looking forward to reading about this one.

                          Because - We are on a Viking ocean ship later this year.

                          We are also doing a maiden voyage, our first. Thats on Queen Anne.

                            Thanks JC and others, we will enjoy the sail into Mahon, we rented a small house for a number of years in Es Castell at the mouth of the harbour, loved to watch the various ships sail in and out, will probably visit the gin factory as well, no plans that day.

                            Mags, any questions please ask

                              Just arrived in the port, we have NCL Escape, Costa Fortuna and Celebrity Edge for company.

                              Need to wear face masks today and do daily saliva tests whilst in port, no great hardship unless……..

                              The ship is squeaky clean and gleaming, set sail tonight at 18.00 for Palermo.

                              The chef’s table menus rotate every 3 days, all included, next 3 nights are Californian, booked in for Monday at 19.00, sensible time.

                              hopefully, pictures to follow

                              John
