  1. Our last AZ TA was two years ago. There were bridge lessons(beginners/intermediate) and duplicate bridge each sea day. I also joined the sea choir for the first(and only) time. It was fun. We practiced each sea day for about an hour and then performed toward the end of the cruise. You don't need a good voice to join. (I can attest to that)
  2. Taxis will be readily available or you could order Uber. There is a lot of road work going on now in Montreal so travel times aren't predictable. I would allow 45-60 minutes and you'll be fine.
  3. You won't have to line up again. You'll get a special re boarding line that will expedite boarding. You're close to Bayside Market and can walk around, shop and eat/drink. Lots to do for all ages. They have instructions for b2b cruisers which will make your transition easy, especially if you're keeping the same cabins.
  4. The time from the Waterfront Station (the station near the port and the terminus of the train) is 25 minutes to the airport. Canadian customs is usually pretty quick. The walk from Canada Place( once you've cleared) to the train is about 10 minutes. The line through US immigration at YVR can be 10-30 minutes depending on the number of travellers. Add the airline check in and security which can be 10-20 minutes and you've got a total of 55 to 85 minutes once you clear Canada Customs at Canada Place. You should be fine if you're off the ship by 8:30. Global Entry takes a while to get so you not may get approved by September.
  5. You'll have time to do the excursion and see parts of the city. The Giants Causeway and surrounding area is beautiful and interesting. I'd also suggest doing a Black Taxi tour in the city. It takes around two hours and gives you a good historical perspective of "the troubles". If that doesn't interest you then I'd suggest the Titanic museum.
  6. Yes there is a sign for Global Entry. We informed the staff that we had Nexus and were told to go in the line for US citizens. We only waited about 15 minutes. The line for Non-US citizens was massive and wasn't moving. So glad to have Nexus.
  7. I have done this from FLL and MIA. The Alamo location is only a couple of minutes from the port. They do drop offs at all of the ship terminals. Like any shuttle, you might have to wait a few minutes for the shuttle if others are dropping off their cars at the same time.
  8. I ordered it last week on the Reflection and it was I ordered it last week on Reflection. Three round slices that weren't dark but very dense and dry. At least the chefs are consistent in their preparation from ship to ship. I had three bites and couldn't stomach anymore. Ordered a large Caesar salad instead.
  9. There is a great wine shop in the "born district" that carries wine from all over the world. I've bought wine there many times before and after cruises. It's called Vila Viniteca. They are also a distributor so they've got excellent prices as well. It's close to the shuttle drop off area but not close to the port.
