  1. Thank you for posting your report. What a difference! Can't wait to be back in Alaska in September.
  2. I wonder if they are going to have shuttles/buses going to Totem Bight from there since it's so much closer than going from downtown?
  3. Right near the fort. Walking Distance. Beach La Francaise.
  4. Our day in Martinique here. This was in October 2019.
  5. We were there in 2015, so quite a while back, but here are some photos of our day there. At that time the shuttle boats were free so not sure how it is now.
  6. We used the City Blue Bus the last time we were in Barcelona. Here are a couple of photos of the bus and the location in port at the bottom of the page. It was 3E one way and 4E roundtrip.
  7. We also did CT on our own. We purchased the train/park tickets ahead of time online. The tourism office at the train station may not be opened at the said time and we were told that people who worked there was rude. We took the train to the fifth town and worked our way back. Very easy but need good timing. Quite an experience. Similar to Portofino but at a larger scale. You may look through my blog page for "MSC Back-to-back cruises 2019" to see what we did. I also have videos there.
  8. We just booked our September Alaska cruise and this will be our 6th sailing in Alaska. Prices already look higher for 2022, so if you want to try it out, this may be a good year. I know everything is still changing everyday but we look forward to this cruise. If all else fail, at least we will be visiting family in Seattle that we have not seen for two years.
  9. Wow! Thank you for pointing that out. That's amazing!
  10. Thank you so much for the kind words. Keeping the blog helps refreshing my memories of our trips. If you go to the "Home" page, you will find all the places we have been in the last 10 years. Thanks again!
  11. We loved ISP! We were there on our transpacific cruise a couple of years back and it is now my favorite stop in Alaska. Here are some pictures of our day there if interested. Looking forward to go back in September if it's a go!
  12. We love these longer cruises. Our last cruise was on MSC Divina from Rome to Miami with stops in the Mediterranean and Caribbean. Had a great time. Some videos here if you are interested.
  13. Wow! This is exactly for us! Read all the previous posts and wanted to chime in. Our very first cruise was in 1993 when our parents introduced us to cruising, fell in love but did not have the time and money to do it often. A few years later we purchased a Class C to make short trips. Then I retired in 2011 and since then we were able to take advantage of the lower cruise rates offered off season and have done mostly international traveling. We figured cruising would probably be THE way we would travel from now on and sold the RV in 2019 which is starting to give us pro
  14. We had a nice stay at the Intercontinental Yokohama Grand in 2018. A beautiful hotel, maybe not as convenient as the other hotels mentioned as it is a little away from public transportation. Can't beat the views though. Here is my record of our stay there: http://chiumemories.blogspot.com/2018/06/intercontinental-yokohama-grand.html
  15. Both of these hotels are in good spots with the Sheraton a tad little closer to all the action being right on Nathan Road (main street in Kowloon) and Salisbury Road. The Peninsula is right across the street and walking down Salisbury Road will take you to the Star Ferry. There are shops, malls, MRT stations underneath the hotel. Shangri-la Kowloon is in what they called East Tsim Sha Tsui area a little away from the main drag but there are shops and restaurants nearby also. It's easy to get around in Hong Kong if you don't mind the walking but personally I would pick Sheraton just for the con
