  1. We had a great time. (We have booked with him again in October 2020.) He moved us to different spots for the best snorkeling. He is knowledgeable of the islands and loves what he does.
  2. Our cruise will be stopping in Boston overnight. Does Oceania have a free shuttle from the port to Boston? If so how late does it run? If you have overnighted in Boston, how late can you return to the ship? We are planning to meet relatives for dinner in Boston and I am trying to plan our transportation from the port to Boston and back to the ship.
  3. Does anyone have any suggestions for any good books that involve Antarctica or Antarctica travel? When I booked my Antarctica Expedition with Hurtigruten (Fridtjof Nansen) they sent me a list of books that I might enjoy. They are mostly informative books. I enjoy fiction and non-fiction, and some biographies. I just happened to recently read a fiction book that I really enjoyed which had a whole section that involves a cruise to Antarctica. So for anyone interested, the book is "Where'd You Go Bernadette" by Maria Semple.
  4. On the Bliss November 3, 2018 Panama Canal. Several people from our roll call witnessed this. edited to remove face of winner.
  5. We are booked on the 12 night Antarctica expedition in December 2020. For those of you who have done this trip - Are there optional excursions in/on Antarctica? Or are all the landings etc. offered included? (I am not talking about pre and post cruise in Ushuaia or Buenos Aires.) I have looked on the Hurtigruten website for this year and all I see are the pre and post. (It will be much easier on the wallet if everything is included.)
  6. I have apparently posted this to the wrong board (River Cruise Ports) with a note that it was moved to forum River Cruising. I just figured out that I do not have to choose the sub heading and can choose the heading. I am excited to research those threads.
  7. I chose to stay in Bern for two nights. After we rent the car we would like to go to hotel Pilatus Kulm (if open) for late lunch and then to the hotel to check in. The second day we plan to go to Geneva. I would love to stay in Geneva but the drive back to the Basel airport for a 2:00 flight is too long. I have rented a car at the Basel Airport Switzerland side. We can take a cab from the port to the Hertz car rental. Unless anyone has a better idea☺️
  8. If anyone is still following - Is there a rental car agency close to the Basel port? Or that picks you up at the Basel Port?
  9. We will be on the Viking Ullur. We chose Viking for the Explorer Suites on the back.
  10. This made me laugh out loud. (No disrespect intended.) I live in the Atlanta area yesterday at noon our forecast was a solid NO RAIN before Saturday. At 5:30 we had flooding rainstorms.
  11. We are booked. Thanks for the advise about the docking situation. That helped us decide between an AA and an ES. Lots of pieces to the puzzle of this trip. Now I just need ideas for a hotel in Basel post-cruise. We are planning on a Vacation Rental for pre-cruise in Amsterdam with our daughter and grand daughter.
  12. We are booking a Rhine River cruise in June 2020 traveling Amsterdam to Basel. Traveling in that direction, is there a better side of the ship to be on for the best views?
  13. We were in a deck 11 aft Oceania Suite on the Marina. The suite itself is a little smaller than the Oceania Suite on deck 12, But the wrap around deck was a big plus for us. We entertained another couple or two in the suite on several occasions and there was plenty of room. The media room is quite small - just a love seat, end tables, and a coffee table. I did enjoy it for watching television while my husband napped. There is not a television in the living room. We enjoyed it so much that we are in the same aft Oceania Suite next month for New England.
  14. http://www.alltransfersinrome.com/ they were great. Nice autos, nicely dressed, very helpful with luggage, and a great price.
