Cool Cruiser

Cool Cruiser (2/15)

  1. I'm not sure what you mean by the current inability to go further into the park.
  2. We are thinking about booking the Alaska cruise and wanted to get an opinion about the Denali Extension or the Pristine Alaska. We are thinking of booking the direction from Seward to Vancouver so it would be a pre-cruise extension.
  3. Intended Address in Japan Postal code 1600023 Prefecture TOKYO TO City Shinjuku Ku Address 6-6-2 Nishi-Shinjuku Hotel Name Tokyo Hilton

    Tipping in Japan

    I would like to know what the norm for tipping in Japan. Tour Guides, Taxi drivers, Private car services, Private guides, restaurants/bars. Thank you in advance for the help
  5. We are also arriving early on our own 2 days prior but staying at the Tokyo Hilton which is the hotel for the "free" 3 days. We did not opt to pay the almost $2000 for the two days but only $900 for booking it on our own, we have to pay for our own transfers to the hotel. Can I ask you which service are you using? Our hotel recommends the Limousine Bus but we are leaning towards getting a car service (from Narita). Our transfer to the airport from the ship upon debarkation is included and not charged.
  6. You can check it at guest services so you don't have to walk around with it until your room is ready. This was our experience in our past Regent cruises (pre-Covid).
  7. We did an air deviation to come into Tokyo early but had Regent booked the flights for us. We were told that we had to provide our own arrangements from the airport to the hotel (which we booked the same as the Regent 3 day land), but we were told that all the other transfers were included. I'm wondering why you had to purchase the transfer at the end of your cruise.
  8. I googled the question and the answer was Yes for US. Citizens.......but I had a question whether it applies to cruising to S. Korea from Japan for US Citizen. Will an ETA (Electronic Travel Authority) Visa be required ? I don't see a notice from the cruise company for any visas necessary. Thank you in advance for help with this question.
  9. Since Nov 1st Japan has started a program to allow visitors to pre-register passport and COVID vaccination data in advance of arrival to get through quarantine, customs and immigration faster. To Anyone Entering/Returning to Japan (mhlw.go.jp)
  10. I have the hotel information for the fast track...but it asks for postal code, prefecture, I have the following information Tokyo Hilton 6-6-2 Nishi-Shinjuku Shinjuku-ku 13 160-0023 JP Is the 160-0023 the postal code? Prefecture is TOKYO TO? Any help is much appreciated.
  11. Thank you for your quick reply. We would rather not be stressed out with having traveled 19+ hours and with our luggage so we would opt for a private transfer. We appreciate the cost information on that from both airports.
  12. Did you call the hotel to make sure you keep the same room? We are doing the 2 nights on our own and then Regent has the included 3 night land portion (same hotel). We wanted to keep our same rooms for all 5 nights. Wondering if that was hard to do.
