  1. Came home from the Baltics via Amsterdam last August. It is the longest, biggest airport we have ever been to. Makes JFK, Atlantic & LAX seems small. Signage is not great either. So allow ample time.
  2. Thank you for letting us know about the Marriott Moxoy. I just changed our reservation from the Premier Inn next door to the Marriott. Even saved a little money for a much newer hotel. Love the advice we get through Cruise Critic.
  3. We also are sailing out of Southampton on the 23rd on the Island Princess. We are taking the National Express bus from Victoria Coach Station to Southampton. Have used them previously. Suggest you try Trivago.com and pick a hotel near Victoria Station. To get from Heathrow to Victoria Station is easy. Take the Picadilly Line underground, change at Hammersmith (no need for stairs as you merely cross the platform.) to the Piccadilly Line. If staying in Southampton suggest Premier Inn West Quay which is walkable from the bus station in Southampton.
  4. Last minute as in did on line check in 24 hours before our flight.. Only got boarding pass for first leg of flight with a partner airline. Told we need to get boarding pass at airport prior to boarding Virgin. Get to airport to find our seats were changed. There was no equipment change either time. Still do not know why this happened, but have read our case is not an isolated one with Virgin. Loved our flying experience with Virgin both times, but no longer want to take the risk of being moved around again.
  5. We have flown Virgin twice. Both times (at the last minute) our seats were changed and not at all what we booked. You may not get what you think you are getting when you get on the plane. That said I ended up with a middle seat and had no problem talking to my husband who had a window seat across from me. The foot stool was comfortable we ate our meal together this way. Just don't like the way Virgin seems to routinely change your seats.
  6. We are spending the night at the Best Western In Dover. Anyone with suggestions for dinner?
  7. As long as you booked them at the same time, you will automatically check in for both & get both boarding passes.
  8. If you have never been, you are missing a wonderful adventure. My hubby did not care about going to Cuba, but now raves about our visit there.
  9. Does your cruise line offer airfare. We quite often find it much cheaper booking thru the cruise line.
  10. Does anyone know if the San Juan, Puerto Rico offers luggage valet service?
  11. We want to travel to Brussels then Amsterdam after we disembark the Pacific Princess in July. Any suggestions how we do this, especially to Brussels from Dover.
  12. We live just outside Tampa. Having lived in So. California most of our lives, we feel the drive is very pleasant. Take I75 all the way down to Naples and go east on Alligator Alley. It is about a four and one half hour drive. Avoid getting to Fort Lauderdale after about 4:00 to avoid the heavy traffic.
  13. It was at Tampa Airport.
  14. It is my understanding the crew does get paid until the airplane is on the tarmac. We got stuck on a plane once & at the gate 3 hours. A magical time, since the entire flight crew had to go home and the airline order another crew3, from heaven knows where. Several of us chose taking an alternate flight.
  15. We are doing a Baltics cruise and want to go from Dover, U.K. to Brussels, Belgium the day we disembark. Cannot seem to find transportation without a very expensive cost or a late night bus. Any advice from our wise Cruise Critics will be very much appreciated.
