Just got some good news from our travel agent. When we booked our Hong Kong to Bangkok cruise for this coming October we booked under a promo that provided a one category upgrade. So we paid a promo price for the lowest category and when I used the online “book it now” button was able to select a DV1 (highest DV Category) facing aft…alas, by the time I finished inputting the required information, the system said it was no longer available and we ended up with a DV2 on Deck 6-midship. Still not too shabby!

Week before last while looking to see how full the ship was, I saw that one DV1 had become available-and it was one of the wake facing ones. Emailed our travel agent, she could see it and so could her Viking rep but they couldn’t get the system to book it. They thought maybe the deep dive he had done to see which DV1 was left had locked the room up. Anyway, Clay looked again last week and it was still there. Emailed a friendly reminder to our agent and frankly we both had forgotten about it until just now at 10pm on a Sunday when she emails that it’s now ours! 😊😊😊

Now what will we do if they offer us a reasonably priced upgrade to a PV? Will be mighty hard to give up the wake views-haven’t had one since we went round the horn in 2010! As you can see if you go to our Instagram (@ClaynMike) it’s balcony is bigger than those on either port or starboard. We will be directly below the big infinity pool but based on reviews of this stateroom, that hasn’t been an issue for anyone.

Now just have to make sure the cruise doesn’t get canceled🤞

  1. Congratulations! We used to always book the corner afts on RCI. Once they upgraded us to a Jr Suite and we had to fight but got the aft back. That being said….on Viking I’d take the PV!! We’ve never had the luxury…
