  1. We stayed for 7 nights at the Rubens at Buckingham palace. Beautiful hotel and great location. Our room had a view of royal mews. Great restaurants and bar here too. Close to the train and underground station. Easy 2 block walk with luggage. We highly recommend My Brother and his wife stayed here for long weekend in september and they loved it too!
  2. We have stayed several times at best western and conference center on odonnell street. Free breakfast and free safe parking along with free shuttle back n forth from cruise terminal. Expect to pay around 110 to 125 for one night. Large rooms too! They have free shuttle that goes back and forth to inner harbor for sightseeing or meals in the harbor. Very accommodating. Highly recommend!
  3. I would never abuse the system. I was only asking as I had no idea that significant others and children automatically inheritent status. Never hurts to ask!!
  4. I just checked icelandair and the cost $2500 more for their premium sits and has a connection vs SAS non stop. I think I will go on choiceair site and book SAS non stop plus seats. Using choiceair will give us flexibility to change up to 90days before cruise. Plus nice to have reprice option with choice air if fares improve. Anyone know if I can pick seats now or wait till paid in full next may? I forget what I did last time with choice air
  5. Total difference is $800. We will be booking either scandic palace or The Square hotel and figure we can drop our luggage at hotel storage and go off to tour copenhagen. With SAS direct flight we would arrive at 730 am. Vs BA flight with 3 hr layover in heathrow would arrive at 1 pm.
  6. I will arrive 1 day ahead of cruise departure. Never travel same day. I am looking at booking SAS Plus seat. Lounge access is always preferred and I have priority pass membership I can use if not included with SAS. Past trips to europe we flew norwegian air premium seats and were always happy. How does SAS Plus compare to norwegian premium? I am leaning towards booking this non stop flight but my Dh wants to save $800 and go with british airways with connecting flight at heathrow.
  7. We have done it twice in last 2 years and always have fun. We are booked to do again on serenade this January. Good food and unlimited wine is nice too! We made new friends that night that we met up with a couple times throughout our cruise. You'll have fun. Go for it!
  8. We are booked on a b2b for August 2020. We have flown non stop with Norwegian for past trips to Europe but right now their ticket price is about $1500 higher and I don't want to book with them with all their financial problems. Has anyone flown with SAS airlines - particularly their premium economy / SAS Plus from Newark to CPH? Good or bad? I prefer to fly non stop when possible but if I have to the next best flights seem to be with British Airways or Lufthansa (both with connections either LHR or Frankfurt). connections make me worry about losing luggage and I cannot be on a 16 day cruise without my luggage. Please let me know thoughts on SAS airlines and their Plus seats. Thank you!
  9. Thank you for this information. We have narrowed down our hotel search to either scandic palace or The Square hotel. Similar location. Is there easy access to metro train or bus to get from airport and to cruise port with luggage from this location?
  10. Does anyone know if I can link my Brother to my diamond status? We do not live together but we are cruising together next year on a b2b and have separate cabins booked. I would feel bad to go diamond lounge without him.
  11. Whoops I had typo yes I meant scandic palace hotel.
  12. Disney springs does have alot of children / teen friendly activities. There is big Lego store balloon ride amphibous car ride in lake. shopping is not cheap but lots of nice stores and plenty of restaurants. March is a great time as long as it isn't spring break.
  13. Early december is a wonderful time to cruise the caribbean especially southern caribbean. You can do some holiday shoppjng at the ports too. I bought some cute ornaments for various family members on my last december cruise. Enjoy!
  14. We are all booked for a b2b Baltic/Norway cruise for august 2020 with RCCL. I would like to book a hotel in city center of Copenhagen that has AC for our 2 days before cruise departure. We like to sleep in comfort, especially when dealing with jet lag. Does anyone know if the scandic plaza hotel has air conditioning in their rooms. Looks like the scandic webers does but I like the central location of the scandic plaza hotel better. Thank you for your help!
  15. We have sailed on grandeur 3 or 4 times and always stay on deck 4. Our first time we were in cabin 4016. It was okay but like the other person said cabins in 4040 and up are in great position. Our last cruise we were in 4036 too close to elevator people can see when you open door. We are booked for march cruise in 4042. You'll enjoy!
