Cool Cruiser

Cool Cruiser (2/15)

  1. What company/transportation provider did you hire? We'll have a fairly large group and I'd love to look into something like that.
  2. For our upcoming Amsterdam stop, we will port at the cruise terminal in Ijmuiden. What is the best way to get from the cruise port to the Amsterdam city center? I've heard that there is a local bus route (Route #382). How far is the bus stop from where we get off the ship? Is it hard to catch a bus? How long does it take? Are there taxis readily available, and if so, what would be the typical fare? Any recommendations for private transportation companies? Any other suggestions? Thanks for your help.
  3. Can NCL on-board-credit be used towards the daily gratuities? I know with some cruise lines it can be and others it can't. We received $200 OBC with our NCL booking and I'm trying to decide how we'll use it.
  4. Do I have to wait for an email inviting me to bid for an upgrade, or is there some way that I can go ahead and bid before that?
  5. I understand that most NCL itineraries offer a laundry special mid-way through the cruise that lets you have cleaned as much as you can fit in a paper bag. What is the size of the bag? Also, any tips or suggestions about fitting as much as possible in the bag without the bag tearing? Thanks!
  6. I'm sure this is already answered somewhere, but I can't find it. If we decide to do the BOGO air fare, how soon prior to our cruise will we likely receive our itinerary?
  7. Which cruise terminal does NCL use in South Hampton? What's the best way to get from there to the train station?
  8. We have a european NCL cruise booked for this coming June. I know that with many European cities, there are various places a cruise ship may actually port and that different cruiselines use different places, some of which may be a ways outside of the city. We're just wondering where we'll actually get off the ship in these cities, and whether we'll be close to the town center or whether we'll need to find transportation to get into the "listed" town. For NCL cruises, can any of you tell us what to expect for the following stops: Gothenburg, Sweden Copenhagen, Denmark Warnemunde, Germany Hamburg, Germany Amsterdam, Netherlands Zeebrugge, Belgium LeHavre, France Thanks for any NCL specific help, insights, and suggestions you can provide!
  9. Our upcoming cruise in June starts in Oslo. We're looking at spending several days in Oslo prior to the cruise. We've never been there and its always been high on our bucket list. Do any of you have recommendations for a good hotel? We want something nice but don't need fancy or high end. We're looking for something reasonably priced that has good access to sites of interest and public transportation.
  10. One of our stops next June is in Zeebrugge, Belgium. We're scheduled to arrive at the Zeebrugge Cruise Terminal at 8:00 a.m. I've schedule a tour that leaves from the city center in Bruges at 10:00 a.m. What is the best way to get from the cruise terminal in Zeebrugge to Bruges (and then later back to the cruise terminal)?
  11. First time with Celebrity next month on the Eclipse. One of our party has celiac disease and is therefore limited to gluten free food options. How is Celebrity with accommodating these needs? Any tips and recommendations would be appreciated.
  12. Thanks. Yeah, I don't like the idea that you can't see other excursions once you book something for that day.
  13. We have a cruise booked for next June. At this point, all we've paid is the $250 deposit. As I've been looking at excursions, there are a few I'm quite interested in. I hate to wait too long to book them and find that they're sold out. If I book an excursion now, can I cancel it later and get a full refund if I find something I'd rather do or if we change our minds and don't go on this cruise? If so, what would be the deadline for cancelling the excursion and getting a full refund?
  14. We're doing the 7-day California Coastal itinerary on the Eclipse in October. This will be our first experience with Celebrity. What might we expect for the evening entertainment in the main theater on a 7-day cruise?
  15. We're doing our first cruise on Celebrity in October. We can't do the on-line registration until August 31st. Just wondering how early we'll be able to check-in and board the ship the day of the cruise. Does Celebrity assign check-in time based on when you complete the on-line registration?
