  1. Thanks so much for your fantastic review. Love your pictures and write-ups. Went to the Norwegian Fjords last year on the Jade and loved it so much that we're booked on the 14 day Norway and Arctic Circle cruise next June on the Star. Was excited before but after reading this review, June can't come fast enough!
  2. Have been on the Spirit 7 or 8 times and have never booked a restaurant reservation online. We book once we get on board and have always been able to get the night and time of our choice.
  3. I was on the Spirit in April and the cruise ended in Rome. The NCL transfers were $60.US p/p and there was 3 different times for the transfers depending on what time your flight was. 6:30am for flights after 12:00 7:15am for flights after 13:00 9:15am for flights after 15:00
  4. Hi PTCruizer, We are spending 2 nights in Civitavecchia before our cruise in September so was quite interested in reading your post. We are also staying at the Fuori Dal Porto and was glad to read that you liked the B&B and Civitavecchia. We will certainly go to Wine Experience Enoteca, sounds like you had a wonderful experience there.
  5. Enjoyed your review! Would the cruise be suitable for someone who doesn't speak French? eg, reading menus, ordering meals, shore excursions etc.
  6. I've done a few b2b's and no problem to either stay on the ship or to go off it.
  7. Another vote for the Hotel Olimpia. Have stayed there a few times, a very nice hotel close to the Port area and easy to get to from the airport by bus.
  8. Thanks for your thoughts on the AmaMagna. Have cruised with Ama before and wondered what this ship was like. Thanks for posting the review.
  9. I've used Spain Day Tours which get excellent reviews on Trip Advisor. Have used them for Seville, Granada and Palma and they were all great tours.
  10. Thank you for your quick responses. That's what I thought but wasn't 100% sure.
  11. If you book a Sailaway cabin do you still receive your Latitude Points?
  12. Another vote for Spain Day Tours. We have used them many times in Spain and they never disappoint. Did the tour of Palma and Valldemossa and it was excellent.
  13. We thought the boat was well maintained and up to the same standards as the other AMA boats we have been on. I can't remember what regions the wines were from but the ones we were served were well selected and appropriate table wines.
  14. Glad you liked the review. It's a wonderful cruise and you'll have a great time; I would love to do it again. Enjoy your cruise!
  15. DAY 7 Lyon There was free time in Lyon until 12:45pm when the boat departed for Collonges. It wasn't raining and was a little warmer than yesterday so we decided to walk to the Old Town which was a pleasant 30 minute walk. Unfortunately we didn't bring umbrellas and as soon as we reached the Old Town it started to rain. We spent about 40 minutes there and then walked back and just as we got close to the boat the rain stopped. There was a briefing at 10:30 am for the passengers who were doing the post extension in Paris and for those who stayed on the boat, there was a presentation on silk painting and printing from 11 am until noon. A Lyonnaise lunch was served at 1 pm with a huge cheese table. There was only 1 tour in the afternoon from 2:30-6:30, a Beaujolais excursion that departed from Collonges but the tour returned to Lyon where the boat changed it's docking position to the Quai Claude Bernard. The tour was quite scenic as we drove by fields and vineyards of the Golden Stone region. We spent time in the medieval hilltop village of Oingt which was named one of France's prettiest towns. We had a tour of the town and then some free time. Then on to a winery where we tasted 3 different Beaujolais wines, 3 different breads, cheese and dried sausage. We returned to the boat at 6:45 and by the time we freshened up just got to the last 15 minutes of S&S. Dinner was at 7:30 and the entertainment was Laszlo. This was Halloween and some of the staff were in costume. It was also the end of the cruise. The next morning breakfast was served from 7-9 am and staterooms had to be vacated by 9 am and luggage out by 8:30 am. The lounge was available to relax in while waiting for your transportation, about a 30 minute drive from the airport. It was a wonderful cruise, one that I could enjoy doing again, hopefully with nicer weather.
