Recommended Posts

Part 2!

IMG_7919.thumb.JPG.31d6b96e99442d87f3e55550feb947cb.JPG

In the lounge Stacey is excited to try the super salty pretzels, weird cheese covered nuts and various other stuff!

Unlimited wine, beer and sodas!

IMG_7923.thumb.JPG.3c251b296737e331b98e2c4797e2b3ce.JPG

The peons can look down at us in the lounge :)

IMG_7924.thumb.JPG.9563c31890af8feb6037abfe4ebd5024.JPG

The had a selection of the menus - you can see they are pretty pricey, even by Scandinavian standards. The pizza place was reasonable, so that is where we decided to have dinner.

Obligatory!

IMG_7929.thumb.JPG.87393f5426aa29079e20647a519c0de6.JPG

Time to sail away form Copenhagen! It is freezing!

IMG_7936.thumb.JPG.8b78d3ded7e8d7f8a36dfd42027bb975.JPG

The indoor spaces were nice. This was the wine bar. Things did get busy later at night.

IMG_7938.thumb.JPG.b540cde7d6e66ad2fc2995425fbf33fb.JPG

The buffet was getting set up, but it was pricey and a little too seafood heavy.

IMG_7939.thumb.JPG.75899682ba787811f435591a2f54b401.JPG

More buffet!

IMG_7943.thumb.JPG.335eb5e6ac1d436da768b56ce0026742.JPG

The duty free shop took up a huge chunk of one floor.

IMG_7944.thumb.JPG.968d1a1b3a285929103a35cf41de195c.JPG

It was so big it even had supermarket style registers!

IMG_7947.thumb.JPG.dd735b35d633f60e16db70c7daa91874.JPG

And a meat and cheese cold case!

IMG_7955.thumb.JPG.7bc5c46afa4efab7e90ef75b7caf6f42.JPG

Stacey was very excited that there was a Mermaid Bar... but it wasn't open. So we brought our sparkling wine out into the cold windy weather anyway!

IMG_7956.thumb.JPG.3fdb46bb3d62e1798c4ab8b73597b4fa.JPG

So strange to see a flag on a cruise ship that isn't Bahamian!

IMG_7958.thumb.JPG.5f99bc226bb03b0a03b95e398cd54371.JPG

You could get SUPER close to the bridge while sailing!

Part 3 and Final! Overall we had a GREAT time and would do something like this again in a heartbeat!

IMG_7973.thumb.JPG.00c8546a861fa3cdf2a8c5be7d89985c.JPG

So much to see before the sun went down, this was the castle from Hamlet on one side and the other side was Sweden!

IMG_7974.thumb.JPG.4129b799de9feb6a4037c95b8ede8e29.JPG

One of my favorite things to photograph, no matter what cruise I am on in the world...

IMG_7979.thumb.JPG.8a7a8da9e523037c1d5e6ca0dbf37c88.JPG

The actually had a decent promenade deck that if the weather was nice would have gotten some use!

1832565588_IMG_79832.thumb.JPG.4ac8c3834be9970a4b418abefbf3303d.JPG

Our dinner menu! Prices were not horrible and the pizza was decent!

IMG_7984.thumb.JPG.139090cd7c0ca2a2db8509db8029a34a.JPG

PIZZA PIZZA!

IMG_7987.thumb.JPG.d94c1b9937ca15870567dd6885c78fe2.JPG

This is one of the upgraded spaces - not bad for a cruise ship pizza joint!

IMG_7989.thumb.JPG.fc96f3ffb141c67d56c7eaed1c6564f2.JPG

The pub which would be hopping later!

IMG_7991.thumb.JPG.e241123decac61969967042d26901f25.JPG

Overview of things to do!

IMG_7993.thumb.JPG.fa59ba9011a92634128eb35f00a62c2e.JPG

Only cruise ship I have seen with multiple pay phone rooms! Never saw anyone using them however.

IMG_7995.thumb.JPG.86e82fa36420c55b1f389077e3bfd34a.JPG

After asking around for hours, we finally got this handy list of the cool things we can see along our route!

IMG_7998.thumb.JPG.c6421d9a875efcb6be334c965db65a4f.JPG

We also finally found the "pool"... it was super weird, empty and you had to pay 5euro to swim.

IMG_7999.thumb.JPG.3ae56ca3b87c30b31138d65f0c36d3a0.JPG

Deserted kids play area

IMG_8001.thumb.JPG.1975244a99833bf5724566b58910512c.JPG

Indoor "pool" :)

IMG_8006.thumb.JPG.c67bbf7035c427ea5f422b05ef9dec6f.JPG

They converted two staterooms into an arcade which was kinda weird!

IMG_8007.thumb.JPG.5a8e38508e8412d8dcce1b6c570fe088.JPG

Guest Services seemed to be more about selling items than actual service.. :)

IMG_8015.thumb.JPG.613532922995486646c7a4edddba77cb.JPG

The main lounge was HOPPING! Decent singers and hilarious to watch the Scandinavians dance without a care in the world!

IMG_8017.thumb.JPG.be7e96621b52f29c512160fdaf18e80a.JPG

This was our favorite place to sit on the ship. You are in your own little hidden world when you sit there!

IMG_8021.thumb.JPG.d563001d7de86b3ed55e9b12c240ec2f.JPG

Other lounge that didn't even get going till 2300 with a DJ. Crazy for a one night cruise!

IMG_8025.thumb.JPG.18696e1ea08296978b95b472b6866408.JPG

Breakfast time! We had a separate and much nicer buffet in the Steakhouse. Fresh mixed juices, lots of cheese, pastries, etc.

IMG_8027.thumb.JPG.9fc378b452118fcd8a5ea36b347286c1.JPG

Yum!

IMG_8066.thumb.JPG.7c5e94bca8c6e4f49df282d23a58a770.JPG

View of arriving in Oslo from our room!

Thanks for a great trip!

That actually looks pretty decent. What did you do once you arrived? And did you feel sea sickness?

 

We had actually been to Oslo before Copenhagen, so this was just returning for one last day before our Flight. Oslo is a BEAUTIFUL city and spending 3.5 days there really just let us scratch the surface.

 

I don't usually get sea sick, but Stacey sometimes does and we didn't have any issues on our voyage. That being said, I did read reviews that this route during the fall can get a bit rough. Since it is a smaller ship, it would be a different experience than a large ship in the Caribbean.

Yeah, it's both weird and awesome being on one of these 'small' cruise/ferry ships. We listed so much at one point on one of our crossings that I left the restaurant and stood near a door to the outside until we righted ourselves again!

 

Thanks for the report Reed!

 

I wish we had all of these different methods of cool transportation in the US!

It's exactly what you would expect on a cruise ship. It would be kind of weird to slide down the mouth of a realistic looking fish figure...

RCCL confirm the delivery on thursday (the boat will leave St Nazaire for Southampton on Sunday).

When I look the pinterest page of Lloyd, il seem to be work to finish. My neighbour who work on the shipyard say to me that there was again workers on the first cruise of Norwegian Epic to finish the work. I think that it is going to happen with Harmony.

Yup. It happens a lot. There were shipyard employees on my Trans Atlantic maiden Quantum of the Seas cruise doing some cosmetic work on the ship.

 

The model looks finished though.

And those plants in Central Park look like they have been there for ages!

Hello everyone.

 

In a couple of weeks I'm taking my second Viking River Cruise, this time through the Bordeaux region of France.

 

Is there any interest in my posting a photo trip report?

 

Would be happy to if you like.

 

Can't wait!

Yes... yes.... YES!!!!

 

Even though not everyone on here will admit to it, we all LOVE photo Trip Reports. Especially when it is something that most of us don't get to do.

 

I know I would love to see your photo trip report, and I bet SharkTums would love to see it too! Can't wait!!

 

Also, have a good trip!!

Absolutely. River cruising is getting bigger and bigger and I'm considering a Central Europe one at some point.

Alrighty then, will post a photo TR once home.

 

As stated before, this will be our second Viking river cruise, and our second cruise of any type. We did the "Romantic Danube" itinerary in August of last year (from Budapest to Nuremburg, with the Prague post-cruise add on trip) and liked it so much, that we booked the Bordeaux cruise shortly after getting home. Cannot believe that the time is almost here! Viking does an excellent job of spoiling you, and I'm looking forward to gaining the inevitable 10 pounds

 

Since we'll be in Bordeaux, we *might* drink a little bit of wine

Count me in as someone interested too!

 

Oddly enough, Viking River Cruises are based in my current city of Woodland Hills. Nowhere near any of their routes.
