  1. Great article, gives me hope that there will be river cruising in 2021.
  2. All AMA cruises are now cancelled until May 31,2020
  3. Use tom's port guides.com for lots of helpful info on Rhodes and Lindos.
  4. Have been to Kotor twice within the last 14 months and tendered both times when getting off the ship. Getting back on the ship we tendered once and once it was docked. We did a tour with Tour by Milo, which was excellent, the 1st time we were there and on the second visit walked around the old town.
  5. Thanks for the wonderful pictures. One of my favorite ships, can't wait to cruise on her again. Enjoy your cruise.
  6. Go to any bar on the ship to purchase it. We always buy it on embarkation day, not sure if you can purchase it after that.
  7. There's a little square just in front of the pre or post cruise land program, just click on that and it should bring up the info you're looking for.
  8. We have used Spain Day Tours many times and found them excellent to work with and excellent tours. They do tours in both Barcelona and Palma.
  9. We used her the 1st time we went to Valletta and it was a fantastic tour. Highly recommend her also.
  10. We also have changes to port times on the Star Norway to Arctic Circle cruise in mid June. Some aren't too bad but the time in Honningsvaag is considerable reduced, had been noon to midnight, now 4:30 pm to 2 am. Fun taking a long tour at that time.
  11. Lots of taxis in Barcelona. The day before we need the taxi, we ask the hotel to call and arrange for the taxi to meet us at a certain time to take us to the port or airport.
  12. Just booked AMA's new France itinerary Essence of Burgundy and Provence. It doesn't start until 2021 but looks fantastic!
  13. Last year in Kotor, 8 of us did a private tour with Tours by Milo. Excellent tour and very well priced.
  14. In Kotor, used Tours by Milo and thought he was excellent.
  15. Hotel Jazz is a nice hotel, have stayed there many times, and close to Las Rambla. Quite easy to get there by the airport bus also. Barcelona Day Tours which also goes by Spain Day Tours is an excellent tour company.
  16. Have used info.romeshuttle a number of times and are always happy with their service.
  17. We stayed 2 nights in Civitavecchia in September and the 1st night ate at Il Fuoco di Bacco. There is no menu as the owner/chef goes to the market and picks fresh ingredients which becomes each night's meal. It is a 6 course meal and costs 25 euros p/p. The night we were there, we started with cheese and charcuterie, then a tomato and rice dish which was fantastic, pasta dish, fish dish, meat and vegetable dish and finally dessert. A lot of food and delicious. The 2nd night went to Trattoria Sora Maria for pasta and it was very good also. Would recommend both of them.
  18. We disembarked from a cruise ship that day a few years ago. We had a tour with Spain Day Tours to go to Montserrat and a tour of Barcelona. Sagrada Familia was opened (we only saw it from the outside) and Park Guell was opened ... can't remember where else they took us in Barcelona but everything was a go that was on the tour and we were told most of the tourist attractions were opened. Once we got back to our hotel (we were staying 2 days post cruise) we had no problem finding restaurants and some stores opened opened that evening. There should be enough things opened so that it won't be a problem for you.
  19. I did that tour a few years ago with them and although a long day, it was a wonderful tour. I remember once we got to Almudaina Palace the tour group was broken into smaller numbers (maybe 10-12 people?) and in Valldemossa we had a tour then given time to look around on our own.

    AMA gratuities

    It's suggested 3 Euros p/p per day for the cruise manager and 12 euros p/p per day for the crew (that's divided up among all the crew) and 1-2 euros p/p for a tour.
  21. Thanks for posting these cruises. Hadn't seen them before and they look quite interesting.
  22. 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!
