  1. We have one day in port in January and are keen to do the Cable Car. However, if the top of the mountain is in cloud our backup plan is to do a short (1-2 hour) river cruise in the Kilim Karst Geoforest Park. I understand that we can show up to the Kilim Jetty and get a non-guided tour but is it possible to book a guided tour from the jetty? Or, will there be tour operators at the port that we could book a guided tour with when we disembark? Because this will be our backup plan we don't want to go booking anything ahead of time.
  2. We're keen to include a visit to an elephant sanctuary so thank you for recommending this one. The ship excursions aren't available for viewing yet but happy to consider doing it independently if necessary.
  3. Thanks for this - I've made a note of your driver's contact details and will very likely contact him closer to the time.
  4. I'm looking for ideas and advice from anyone who has been on a cruise that has stopped in Phuket. We are a family of 4 and will have an overnight stop there during our cruise early next year. Is it easy enough to book a driver for a customised tour when we arrive in Patong? If you have done this would you mind giving me an idea of how much it cost please? Also, any suggestions of what to do or what to give a miss would be greatly appreciated.
  5. Thanks NeilonBoard and Bpos, your responses are very helpful and will make it much easier for us to plan our itinerary there.
  6. Thanks Mrs f., have tried NCL but no response as yet.
  7. We're doing an NCL cruise that has an overnight stop there in January 2020. It looks as though the Jade will anchor off Patong Beach and we will be tendered ashore but the ship will dock overnight at Ao Makham port. Does this sound right? If this is the case, how long does the ship stay anchored off Patong Beach for? And will it stay at the dock the next day or return to anchor off Patong Beach? I'm trying to work out how we might spend our two days there and it would be helpful to know what part of Phuket we will arrive in and leave from each day. Have never done a cruise before that included an overnight port stop.
