  1. We did the overnight in Kyoto last year. Arrived in Kobe at noon, shuttled to downtown and took a taxi to the station, took the train to Kyoto, stayed at the Hotel Granvia right at the main train station and had a TripleLights guide the whole next day, our cruise departed at 8pm so we got to see alot. We decided on the hotel at the train station so we could leave our overnight bag there during the day, and then picked it up on our way to the train. It was a fantastic experience!
  2. We are doing Siem Reap post Millenium cruise next month, We have our air, hotel arranged etc. Can you recommend a tour guide or itinerary for Angkor Wat?
  3. When a ship is overnighting in a port at the end of a cruise, can passengers disembark with their luggage early on the final day- like at 5:30 AM? Need to know to make flight reservations.
  4. Anything with the Tokyo Olympic 2020 logos. There are Olympic stores in a number of cities.
  5. Generally you tip in US dollars. They can exchange foreign currencies at the service desk.
  6. Alushar, Thank you for doing the liveish review.We are on for next year in Jan., your pictures and accounts of excursions, etc are really helpful. Have a great ( long) flight home!
  7. Have you noticed much air polllution on this cruise. We are booked for next year in January, reverse itinerary. DH has asthma so concerned about too much “ bad air”.
  8. As a further note,. The mood has been surprisingly good, considering that the shops and the casino have been closed during this entire Japan section. There are very few activities, nothing new has been added to keep people occupied. After our second stop in Kobe, today, we are headed for two days at sea. Sent from my iPad using Forums
  9. Is the price for internet packages the same onboard as what is in the cruise planner? Basic price, no Captains club, discount offers, etc. Sent from my iPad using Forums
  10. Is the cost of internet pkg (not considering Elite discount or 20%sale) the same onboard as pre cruise? Sent from my iPad using Forums
  11. OP here, thanks. I switched over to Chrome and got it printed ok. I agree though, we dont really need it, except for the luggage tags,we changed cabins and needed the new ones with the new cabin number. Sent from my iPad using Forums
  12. Has anyone else had trouble printing from the CCL website today? My Express passes keep coming out all garbled. Sent from my iPad using Forums
  13. How do you order from the mdr menu, I thought only the standard room service menu was available to guests other than suites. Can you also order from Blu if you are in AQ? Sent from my iPad using Forums
  14. Is this Charger issue primarily on Celebrity, or are other Cruise lines also cracking down on power strips, chargers, etc with surge protectors? We havent cruised other lines recently. Sent from my iPad using Forums
  15. We have done this previously in other locations. The procedure is you must email the cruise line customer service and request an “Early Disembarkation Waver”,include in your request all of the pertinent details, including confirmation number, names, reasons for departure, dates etc. It may take them some time to respond because they have to contact immigrations to be sure that they will be available. ( since the ship will overnight there, this probably wont be a problem since Immigration will have already been processed, but they must know that some passengers are not departing with the rest). Luckily you have some time before sailing for them to process the request. I wouldnt make flight arrangements until you get a downline confirmation. I would also request that customer service notify you that they have received your request and to have them give you an aprox date that they might let you know their answer. Be sure to keep the paper trail. Sent from my iPad using Forums
