Default Century Sky Update

Viking River Cruises inaugurated the Viking Century Sky at a ceremony Sunday night in Chongqing, part of a special three-day cruise. Agents where among those who got a first look at the five-deck vessel with 153 balcony cabins, plus a Western-style galley and two elevators, both of which are unique on the Yangtze. The company carried 5,000 passengers to China last year on its first Yangtze vessel and expects to boost that number to 18,000 this year and to 25,000 in 2006, when it adds the Viking Century Sun.

And we are boarding on September 11 in Chongqing for a 4 night voyage thru the Three Gorges. What date will you be leaving the ship? We will be arriving Chongqing after spending 4 days in Lhasa, Tibet. We will actually be arriving in Beijing late on September 1 as an early arrival for a tour that starts in Beijing on September 3. Looking forward to an interesting trip. Clarence

We debark on Friday, Sept 9 in Shanghai. Have you received your pre-cruise documents yet? We received our Visa info and hotel itinerary. I am very excited.

Hmmm. Getting off in Shanghai on Sept. 9 and we are getting on Sept. 11 in Chongqing? Something does not compute. My itinerary says "The Viking Century Sky departs Chongqing for 3 nights on Sunday, September 11, 2005, arriving Maoping Wednesday, September 14, 2005." I don't think that the ship can make it all of the way back to Chongqing in 2 days since it takes 9 days for it to go in the other direction.

Yes, we have received the Visa and Hotel info. We wish to stay an extra night at the Shangri-la in Shanghai however Viking has sold their entire allocation of rooms and the hotel is completely full so we will have to go elsewhere.

This should be quite an experience! Clarence
