    DAILY DOCK FOR JULY, 2018

    Good morning! We're half way through the month of July already, and the summer is flying right by us. We've been lucky with a lot of sunshine here, but really could use some rain because my lawn is nearly dead in spots. Miranda, our Viking cruise runs from October 6-13, 2019, Basel to Amsterdam. We are spending 2 days in Lucerne before the cruise, and right now have no plans to spend extra time in Amsterdam. But if that changes, you'll be the first to know! Enjoy the rest of the weekend, Crazies!

    Posting on other Cruise Websites

    Yeah, the moderators over at the "critic" site are very trigger happy, and the people over there can be downright mean and vicious. With that said, however, I have in the past, been able to hook up with other nice people on the other "Critic" roll calls specifically to share a tour. My Christmas wish is that we can increase the traffic here on all the forums and especially get more people to post their future cruises on our "Roll Call & Group Cruise" forum so that we have the opportunity to do the same - meet up on a cruise and plan tours together, both for the camaraderie and the savings!🙂 What we have that the other communities don't is a small but tight-knit community of friendly people, and we really have The Dock to thank for that. The Dock gives us the opportunity to get to really know people in a more personal way that you could never do with people behind the keyboard. It's no wonder that our CruiseCrazies group cruises are usually made up of our members who frequent the Dock.🙂
  7. Just booked my daughter and myself on this cruise with 2-day pre-cruise extension in Lucerne. My brother and his wife are coming, too.😁 Who's joining us?

  14. Some of you may remember my brother, Norm and his wife Dana. They have booked their first river cruise for next fall, specifically, Oct. 5, 2019, 7-day Viking Rhine Getaway, Basel to Amsterdam, with 2-day pre-cruise extension in Lucerne. I'm planning on joining them with my daughter, Jenn, because I can't convince David to go. Anyone want to join us and make it a 2019 Crazies Cruise? October is a popular month, and ship is filling up, so let me know. Otherwise, I'm afraid that with our early summer Paris plans, two weeks on Cape Cod and the Viking Cruise, my vacation time is all taken for 2019.
  15. With ships getting bigger and bigger, the cabin choices can be mind boggling. By studying the deck plan before booking, you can avoid disappointment get important information about a cabin's size, # of guests it accommodates, whether it's located near noisy areas, near an elevator, and what amenities they include. Another consideration, if you're looking for a cabin with balcony, is whether the balcony is covered, uncovered or partially covered. A travel agent can be your best friend when choosing a cabin.😁
