Just got the letter below from Viking that our Hong Kong to Bangkok cruise is canceled. Disappointed but not surprised given the visa issues. Any ideas for something fun to do this fall?
Dear Viking Guest,
Thank you for choosing Viking for your upcoming voyage on board the Viking Orion.
While travel restrictions have eased in most destinations around the world, cruise travel remains complicated in some regions, particularly in Asia. We had hoped that by now traveling freely in the region would be possible; however, several of the countries along your itinerary remain closed to cruise travel, preventing us from sailing as scheduled.
We are contacting you today because you are currently booked on one of the departures that cannot be operated as planned, requiring that we make the difficult decision to cancel your voyage. We share deeply in your disappointment and offer our sincere apologies for these unavoidable circumstances.

We want to support you and protect your travel investment. Therefore, we are offering a 110% Future Cruise Voucher which you can use on any river, ocean or expedition voyage in 2022, 2023 or 2024. This voucher includes 100% of the monies paid to Viking, plus an additional 10% value. Additionally, any vouchers you may have applied to this booking have automatically been reinstated and are available for your immediate use.

Oh, rats!! So sorry!!!!
Very disappointing but understandable.
We had our first cruise ship for over 2 years call into Auckland today, the P&O Pacific Explorer. Unfortunately a lot of shops in Queen Street, the main street, a short stroll from the wharf, are closed mainly thru covid 19, the winter flu and a dire shortage of workers. However the Sky Tower and casino are both open.
Cheers, Sandy 😀 🌺
