    China Highlights

    I am posting this for my cousin who does not remember his password. [FONT=Times New Roman]I wish to report a very negative experience with China Highlights, a Chinese company that arranges tours in China.[/FONT] [FONT=Times New Roman]We paid in advance a total of $840 to this company for a one day tour of Shanghai for 6 persons. Unfortunately our cruise ship the Diamond Princess was unable to dock in Shanghai due to fog; it skipped this port entirely. China Highlights was informed by telephone early in the morning of this fact. Nevertheless when we requested a reasonable refund of 50% they refused and refunded only a total of $60, the amount that they saved on admissions to parks and museums. They apparently had the legal right to do so because the fine print in their contract excludes refunds in all circumstances including weather and acts of God. However, I think their action indicates a very consumer unfriendly attitude and I certainly will never do business with them again.[/FONT] [FONT=Times New Roman] [/FONT] [FONT=Times New Roman]The GasteinGuy.[/FONT]

    New Years in OSJ

    [quote name='StCroixCruiser']I was in Old San Juan last year for New Year's Eve with two of my sons following an 11 night Celebrity cruise. There were some restaurants open, but many were closing early for private parties or so their employees could go to parties of their own. After a little exploration we went the simple route and just went to the Embassy Suites for the evening for dinner at Outback Steakhouse and then hung out in the casino. It turned out to be a great decision as I hit a big jackpot (triple 7's) 15 minutes before midnight (I never play slot machines, but my youngest son was 18 and old enough for the casino there but he wasn't up for learning to play craps that night so we settled down at some slot machines). The machine was still paying out when midnight came and we had been cheering for awhile along with everyone around us. The jackpot didn't completely cover the cost of a 2 week trip island hopping, but it was a nice rebate! LOL There were bands and dancing and cheap drinks and a snack buffet. Not what I would have done if I'd been there with a b/f, but it was safe and easy with my sons. Late nights in Old San Juan can feel a little sketchy walking around some of the darker areas. That kept us from winging it in old town, although we would have liked to find an area where we could have watched fireworks at midnight and that kind of thing. We had done the Segway tour through old town and the fort earlier that afternoon. Most things were slow to open on New Year's Day. The restaurants in the hotels will be sure to open at some point, as will McDonald's and other fast food.[/quote] We appreciate your reply. Happy New Year.
