Hi River Cruisers - I'll be setting up an online chat with Lona Lee and, since we all have different schedules and live in different time zones, I would like to know - using East coast time - what time of day works best for all of you and which day of week works best for you. For example, if you live in New York, you'd let us know that between 6pm and 9pm on Thursdays work best for you.

During our live chat we will discuss your travel options including the QM2 option, we'll discuss hotels both pre-cruise and post cruise, and we'll discuss any special requests and also if anyone is continuing on to Crystal Symphony to the Baltics with me, we'll cover that is well.

But right now, we just need to know what time and day will work for the majority of people.

PostSubject: Monday/Tuesday   2009 Viking Legend River Cruisers - Online Chat Icon_minitimeFri Jan 02, 2009 11:53 am

Before 6pm (eastern time or 2300GMT) this Monday or Anytime on Tuesday or anytime on most any other Monday other than this coming one.

Although I would like to join the chat, it isn't necessary for me, I can go with the group on any decisions and I have already made plans from Amsterdam to Copenhagen.. I may even have to get me a countdown clock bounce

These times work best for me, but I'll try to get on whenever the group can.

8:00am to 8:30pm Central time on Saturdays or Sundays
6:00pm to 8:30pm Central time Mon, Wed, Thurs or Friday (with notice, I could probably be online by 5:30pm)

Tuesday are bad.

And Thursday Jan 15th is bad.

Anytime after 10am (Est) on:

January 2,4,8,10,12,14,16,18,20,22,24,26,28,30 would pretty much guarantee I'd be able to attend.

Will consider other times/dates as well...just have to know ahead and be able to make arrangements. (IE...I'm probably at work...and when the bell rings....it's not recess!) Laughing

Maybe we can narrow it down to a couple different dates and times and see who still has issues.

Well, we don't seem to be picking a time tht all are available.... Any idea when this might happen?

I've been researching flight and hotels options and the Hilton's in Budapest are running a "January" special that seems to have VERY good prices, but the rates are not refundable, so I don't want to book anything until we have our chat....

Good point Murph!
Maybe we should decided a date/time...and those that can't attend....we can save a transcript.

We could also plan more than one ...and would give a second chance for others?

Anything after 6:30pm eastern time works for me during the week. Anytime on the weekend works. I'll be traveling with NDJollyMon though, so I'm sure he'll fill me in on anything I miss. Smile

OK, so are we chatting or what???

Maybe I should just post a bunch of questions here for answers...

The cabins look kind of small, will a normal suitcase or duffle bag style fit under the beds so they aren't taking up cabin space?

I heard we should consider the Hilton as a pre-cruise stay in Budapest. There are 2, the West End seems to be at the city center and the other one is in the Castle district. Which would be better?

Where do we board the ship? I can't seem to find an address or anything on any of the maps to show where this is in town?

I know there isn't a spa onboard, but after that long flight I think I'll really need a massage! Any recommendations on where to get one in Budapest?

Since we are in port overnight in Amsterdam, I am assuming we can get up as early in the morning as we need to to catch a flight. I'm looking at one that leaves at 11:15am. Is that too early? It's the only non-stop back to ORD, so I really want to be on that flight I think!

So, what does everyone think?

I see that onboard you receive a mile post type guide to the trip. I wonder if a digital copy of that is anywhere.

I received a paper copy from a previous cruiser. Not quite a mile post itinerary...but more detailed than the website.

Thank you very much. That's what I thought, but Pete (NDJollyMon) confused me by saying it was tonight. I will be onboard and ready to chat.

Pete, you troublemaker! Wink I'll probably be on a bit earlier than 7pm if anyone just wants to pop on and chat a bit.
