  1. we love Vancouver have been there before! Agree great city.
  2. very helpful and a lot to think about, thanks
  3. Hello, We will be cruising on the above cruise summer of 2020. Much of this cruise is a repeat for us so I am looking for advice on any non included excursions others may have taken and if you felt the price was worth it? Thank you in advance.
  4. Very helpful information, thank you! I think our flights are part of our package with Viking...need to check on that. I assume if we are booked with them, they won't leave without us. But as you said if we come in a day early it is stress free...
  5. Thank you everyone for your help. Looks like we will probably fly in a day early.
  6. Are most of the included excursions for Viking's Ocean Alaska cruise walking tours of the towns/ports visited. Trying to plan now and research whether I should book with some independent operators. Thank you.
  7. We will be on the Orion next August 2020. Flying from the East Coast, does anyone recall what time the boat departs from Vancouver? We have been to Vancouver several times so would prefer not to do the pre Viking Vancouver excursion. Trying to decide if we should come in a day early to Vancouver on our own or just fly in day of departure. Long travel day but next next day is scenic cruising, the Inside passage.
  8. Hi has anyone done the Lake Como pre trip for the Rhine Getaway? pro's con's? we pre booked Lake Como but are re thinking if we should to Lucerne. We went on the Grand European two years ago and loved it and some of the stops will be the same, but hopefully the tours will be a little different.
  9. Great news, just returned from our trip and the Basketball tournament is available. There is a channel called special events and they played all the games so my husband was over the moon. We enjoyed watching the games at O' Sheehans and the staff there always made sure we had a great booth for viewing. Go HOOS!
  10. thanks everyone, my husband is researching bars at our stops that might carry the tournament. HUGE basketball fan
  11. Noala 26 was the bike ride excursion a NCL excursion?
  12. Mostly the itinerary but if there are things on the ship we shouldn't miss that would be great too.
  13. Anyone have any tips on what not to miss for the Western Caribbean Cruise on the NCL Pearl?
  14. Ugh...husband will not be happy. Thanks for the quick response.
  15. Does anyone know if the Pearl as TV channels that will cover the men's NCCA tournament? We are traveling 3/24-3/31. Thank you
  16. All these reviews and pictures have been so helpful, thank you to everyone.
  17. wow... now I am getting excited, thank you everyone for all the ideas and reviews. I appreciate your help.
  18. thank you everyone for your comments and suggestions
  19. Harvest Caye, Belize (10-5) Costa Maya, Mexico (8-5) Roatan, Bay Island, Honduras (7-3) Georgetown, Grand Cayman (10:30-6)
  20. We will be traveling on the Pearl in a few weeks and trying to decide which Mayan ruins to visit. We will probably want to visit two to compare. Does anyone have any thoughts on which port might offer the best Mayan ruin excursion? We are open to the ones on that the cruise offers or a private company. Thank you.
  21. Thank you, we were thinking of trying the Haven as we hear it is wonderful but the only room they have left for the cruise we are considering is a two bedroom and that is really way more than we need. I think we will just go with a suite. WE are thinking of the Western Caribbean cruise have you done that one?
