  1. We were on the Panorama We were not offered a cancellation but there were 30 ish people who cancelled. We were told we would be receiving a 50% refund for each of the two days we were in the hotel. I’ll be watching for that in the next couple weeks.
  2. Hi, I've just returned home from my trip on the Danube on 2 Nov. We were scheduled to sail from Budapest to Prague (last two nights in hotel in Prague) We were not able to join the ship in Budapest with the water levels, but we were put up in a hotel for two nights then taken to the ship in Bratislava. The rest of the trip was traveled as planned with no ship swaps or other changes. Avalon did a great job keeping all the excursions and services as close to the original plan as possible. Mother Nature sure has been tough on that region this year. It was a fantastic trip - glad we didn't panic and cancel.
  3. Thank you all for posting with updates. I don't board in Budapest until the 24th, so I'll keep doing my rain dances
  4. Thank you for the update - I'll keep dancing
  5. Thank you so much - we sail on 24 Oct, so I'll keep an eye on her.
  6. Does anyone have an update on Avalon Panorama on the Danube - Budapest to Prague? We are to sail in one month. Thanks
  7. Thanks for starting this thread. We will be stopping in Reykjavik next year for one day on a cruise (hopefully, weather permitting). Looking for a great private tour for 8 - 10 people for the day to get a good feel for the country (as much as you can in that short of a time). Anyone have some suggestions for us?

    Best non beach excursion in st. Thomas

    Did any of you go snorkeling during a tour with Sunny? Which beach is the best for beginner snorkelers? But they want to see some fish not just sand.
  9. Thanks so much, Dave for the cabin locations.
  10. Dave - thank you so much for all your work on this - I've been lurking for the last couple weeks since my two booked trips are not until 2014, but decided to hop on the band wagon. If you have time, would you do a shot of cabins D712 and B615 for me? Thanks so much. Really excited for tomorrow as I know the rest of you are too.

    33 nights on the Ruby - Caribbean - TA - Med, Review with Pics

    I can't believe I have missed your review for 8 days. Where have I been? Working on my 1200 photos. :) Wow - - you are doing a fantastic job on this review - so glad I was on the trip with both of you. This brings back so many memories. Thanks again for organizing so many of the tours on the last leg. We had a great time. See you again in 2014.

    Barcelona Day Tours - Anyone used them

    Just back from our trip. We used Barcelona Day Tours for a half day tour prior to boarding the ship. They did a wonderful job for us. It was a great way to get a very quick overview of a beautiful city. Very pleased with their services.

    Athens tour guide question

    Just back from the Med. We had a wonderful day in Athens with Paul from Athens by Taxi. We did the full day tour which included the Parthanon then out the coast to the temple of Posidan. We did a lunch stop at a great restaurant. If you get the Professional tour guide, make sure you communicate how detailed you want them to go. Ours went too far into the history of everything - after 15 min at each stop, we just were falling asleep. Our fault for not communicating we just wanted brief discriptions so we could see more. She did a great job, just too much detail for our group.

  15. Thank you for the advice -- I'll keep working on some options.
