    Thank you! That's encouraging!!!! Maybe I'll suck it up and give it a shot! ;p

    Giants causeway

    Would you mind telling me about the walk down to the rope bridge? Is it as long a walk as it is to the Giant's causeway from the visitor's centre? We are visiting in September, and I am trying to determine what the walk to the bridge will be like (I know about the causeway as we've been there before). We are hoping to cross the bridge, but the walk to/from it will need to be taken into consideration for our group. Many thanks in advance!
  6. Loving every minute of this. We have a week in London in early September, before boarding the Royal for her trans-atlantic back. I've already made a note of "Liquid History Tours" :)
  7. Thank you so much for sharing your experiences. We will be in Bergen in September on a TA cruise on the Royal. We have a boat cruise booked for the morning - "Rodne Fjord Cruise". It departs at 10 am for a 3 hour cruise. We are wondering if we should tour via the HOHO bus afterwards, or just meander through the market on our way back to the ship. We are in port from 8 am to 6 pm. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Floorplans for new Sky Princess

    Interesting re the OV cabins! It would be MUCH easier if we could have seen the deck plans before booking!

    Floorplans for new Sky Princess

    Hey Frank! :D Chris and I are going to book the 21 day TA on the Sky later today (once its all open). We had thought of booking the 28 day - and its still not 100% ruled out - but as I get closer to retirement, I am trying to "save" 1 - 2 weeks of vacation time over the next 2 years in order to retire a month earlier. Let's plan on getting together!!!!

    What to do in Honolulu when your flight home is at night

    We just returned yesterday. Our flight was at 10 pm on Monday night. We booked our condo until Tuesday. SO GLAD WE DID! We were able to completely enjoy ourselves right up until the last minute. Had our showers and got ourselves all ready late in the afternoon. Never felt like we were "hanging around waiting to leave". The late flight home is exhausting enough. I can't imagine how we would have felt had we not been able to relax on that last day.

    Holo Holo Maui Tours

    Precisely why we are doing it as a tour. We wanted the day to be relaxing and enjoyable for both of us, as it will be our first visit to Maui. Well, technically our second, but the first time we were there we did a whale watching tour (which was incredible), so I don't count that as we really didn't see "Maui", but rather the water surrounding it! LOL We are travelling with friends who have visited Maui several times, so they won't be joining us. But the 4 of us are renting a car on Hilo. It is indeed much more cost-effective. But sometimes, especially on vacation, you get what you pay for.

    Holo Holo Maui Tours

    Yes, we did prepay. I will try to remember to post back (memory isn't what it used to be!! ;p ) We are in Honolulu after the cruise until mid-October, so if I haven't come back to update here, please post again to remind me.

    Holo Holo Maui Tours

    We have booked with Holo Holo Maui for our upcoming visit. Tour with them on Sep 30th. We booked a private tour "Road to Hana". While I can't comment on the tour itself, obviously, I can tell you that they have been absolutely wonderful to deal with. They answer my emails very promptly, and have been a pleasure to deal with.
  15. Safe travels, and thank you so much for taking the time to do this. Your annual trip blogs are always enjoyable. :)
