It must be a set time. If you look at the website given above, it clearly states: ONLY GOOD FOR FLIGHT DEPARTURES AFTER 12:30 PM. (caps are theirs, not mine.)

Yes, definitely and I'd want to go sooner rather than later (before it's completely spoiled).

Well, even Galdalf says there is more to Bilbo than meets the eye.

And isn't it through travel and through working through problems on his own that Bilbo grew and stretched himself? ;)

It could mean the cruise that ended on Nov 3rd, the one that went from Nov 3-13, and the one that started on Nov 13. Transactions occurring between the 3rd and 13th could've involved all three...

I agree. And the bottom line is that cruise lines are notoriously risk averse (at least the ones that cater primarily to US passengers). Unfortunately they know bookings will suffer if too many folks...

Tendering is actually a good thing at Mykonos (unless you have a mobility issue that makes it difficult).

When you tender, you are dropped off right in the heart of the town. If you are docked,...
