[Resolved] Viking River Cruisesonboard booking information not clear or complete

My husband and I have traveled with Viking on 4 river cruises and have always been very satisfied with our experiences. On our last trip in May 2018, we decided to book an ocean cruise for April 2020. The information we received in our cabin to encourage us to book while on board indicated that "Onboard bookings are made on behalf of your Travel Agent". No where in any materials we received from the person who booked our trip onboard was there an indication that we needed to do anything or that there was a time frame for an action on our part to transfer this booking. No inquiry was made about our travel agent so I assumed it was something that could be taken care of in the future. When I e-mailed my travel agent today about this trip, she contacted Viking and was told the trip had to be transferred to her with in 6 weeks of the booking. I called Viking and spoke with two people who told me that it was too late to make the transfer and no exceptions can be made. How can this be when no information was given about any necessary procedures or time lines? This trip is still more than a year away and we have made no changes in it at all. Had there been any indication of a procedure or time limit I certainly would have complied. I don't feel this is fair. Is there something that can be done?
