  1. I am excited to follow your trip report and your impressions of the Edge. We were in Santorini a few years ago and did the walk down to the tenders. You will have no issues with walking down but just know that you are sharing the path with the donkeys and the “presents” they leave behind. The steps are very slippery so make sure you wear shoes or sneakers with good traction. You will also want to look where you are stepping as you walk down. We first took the ferries to Oia and then the bus back to Fira. It is one ticket for both modes of transportation. You will see the vendors selling the tickets. I don’t remember the cost. When we were there in August it was very crowded so going to Oia first made sense as it wasn’t as crowded early in the day. Santorini is absolutely beautiful and I hope you enjoy your visit. I look forward to your report. Regards, Karen
  2. Will it be quicker to take bus 6A or walk. Will we have to pay another fare to take the second bus.?
  3. We are traveling this year to Copenhagen on Celebrity Reflection. It appears we are the only Reflection cruise coming into Oceankaj, as all the others are docking in Langeline.
  4. Hi Danish Viking: Thanks so much for this information. I just read all 15 pages and I have a few questions. You said in the above quote that the taxis were plenty and buses were rather empty. Did you mean there were plenty of taxis and few buses or empty buses that no one was using? We are arriving on September 4 on the Celebrity Reflection and will be in Oceankaj port from 10am to 6pm. We plan on taking bus 25 to Norreport and walk to city hall where we will pick up the Free Walking Tour. Will we be able to make it there for the 11:00 tour? One more question- we are buying a SIM card for our phone so we will have data on our phone while we are in Europe. We downloaded the DOT app to buy bus tickets in Copenhagen and it appears you can only buy one ticket at a time for one person. Do you have any experience using the app to buy bus tickets? Thanks for your response
  5. We are going on this cruise in August. Can you tell me where the ship docked in Stockholm and Copenhagen? Were you able to walk to town or did you take a cab?
  6. I too am awaiting response about wifi calling . All we need to do is check our business email and go on our business website to check for messages. We would also want to make wifi calling. We figured we would buy the regular internet package but if the Surf package suffice,s of course we would rather spend less.
  7. We are traveling with friends in 2 veranda cabins. There seems to be many unsold aqua class cabins as the prices were really high. As we get closer to sail date I am interested in any move up opportunities to Aqua, however we only want to move up with our friends. Does anyone know if 2 reservations can be linked so that we both can move up together? Thanks
  8. Did you change to the lower cost internet package (Surf Internet Package) ? We will be on the Reflection in August and only need internet to check our business website, email and make wifi calls on the IPhone. We don't need to stream sites like Netflex, etc... Can you shed any light on the internet . Enjoy the rest of you cruise. I am enjoying your review. Thanks
  9. We are going on a 12 day Baltic Cruise in August. We usually have 4 perks so never had to purchase the internet package. Now we only have 2 perks and we need Internet to check our business email, go online to our business website and make wifi calling on the Iphone. We do not need to stream movies or go use skype or face time. Is the Surf Internet enough for our needs? Does it run slower than the regular internet package? Thanks
  10. Thanks for the info. I cancelled The Quality Suites and booked Anchorage Grand Hotel. The fact that we can walk to the train station for the early morning trip makes this a great choice. Thanks for the recommendation.
  11. We have a reservation for one night at this place. We will be driving back from Denali and leaving the next day at 6AM to take the train to Seeward. We choose this hotel because it was close to the train station. Is it ok for one night or should we look for something else. Thanks for info
  12. Thanks so much for the detail response. We are arriving in Seward the day before so we wanted to know the embarkation time so we could plan our day. Knowing we can get on earlier helps alot since Celebrity gave me the incorrect time. I had read your trip report and saw your mentioning the late muster time. We are not quite sure what time to make our specialty reservations as the options were 7:00 and 8:00 (and other earlier and later times), We do like going to the shows and don;t like eating too early. I like how they did the muster when you were on 2 years ago, maybe they will do it that way on our trip. In any event, we are very excited about the trip. Thanks again.
  13. My husband and I are sailing on the Millennium in August Southbound from Seward. I have 2 questions: 1, What time can we board the ship? I called Celebrity and they said boarding is between 2:30pm and 6:00pm. However I have read trip reports of people boarding earlier and having lunch on the ship. 2. Muster Drill - I read on a trip report it was at 7:45pm and dinner shuts down at 7:30pm. I went online to make a specialty restaurant reservation (as it is our anniversary that day) and there was a 7:00pm option. How does the ship handle this? I called Celebrity and they had never had this question before. Anyone have experience with dining on the first night when the muster drill is during dinner hours?
  14. My husband and I are avid cruisers and excited to celebrate our 32 wedding anniversary during this trip to Alaska. We are active and youthful 60/61 years old. We will be on Celebrity Millennium on August 24th (our anniversary date). We are arriving 5 days earlier on August 19th and have done some planning but need to fill in a lot of blanks. We like to enjoy our time and not feel rushed. I am not interested in going on any helicopters or planes but enjoy the outdoors and can walk for miles. Sunday , August 19th - We arrive around 1:30PM after 10 hours of flying and waking up at 3AM. We will be renting a car at the airport. We are staying at Home2Suites by Hilton . We plan on touring around Anchorage and getting ready for the next day. Need suggestions for must do sights, restaurants, etc... Monday , August 20th - Leisurely drive to Denali. and staying at Aurora Denali Lodge for 2 nights. Need suggestions for sights, restaurants along the way. Not sure if we plan to detour to Talkeetna. I have read conflicting remarks about it. Tuesday, August 21 - Tour Denali with Bus tour. Still looking into different options . Suggestions?? Wednesday, August 22 - Back to Anchorage, will have car all day. Staying at Quality Suites Historic Downtown. (very close to Alaska Railroad for early the next day) Thursday, August 23 - Alaska Railroad to Seeward. Staying at Hotel Seward. Still researching Seeward. May go to SeaLife Center . Not sure if we want to do Kenai Fjords. Advice - is this a must do? Friday, August 24 - Cruise Day Cruise Ports - Juneau - Mendenhall Glacier and Hike to Nugget Falls and walk around town Skagway - Chilkoot Charters - Yukon rail and Bus Excursion Icy Strait - Glacier Wind Charters - Whale and Wildlife Excursion Ketchikan - No plans yet. May do a ship excursion since we have onboard credit to spend. Vancouver - 2 days - Staying at L'Hermitage Hotel - still researching. Thanks for any advice to help with researching this awesome trip.
  15. We arrived early morning the day before our cruise and also stayed at Hotel Traghetto. We decided to go straight to Civitavecchia since we knew we would be very tired after traveling overnight. We were staying 5 days post cruise in Rome. The main reason we choose Hotel Traghetto was because we could walk to the port shuttle. We arrived around 10am and the room was not yet ready. They held our luggage and told us to come back in a few hours. We walked around the town. There is a very good pizza place on the corner. The included breakfast was just ok with mostly pastries, and muffins, but we knew we would have plenty of food on the ship. Have a great trip.
