  1. We were on the Marina last May and docked in Bordeaux about a ten minute walk from the center of the city. It was a wonderful and scenic location Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  2. Are excursions booked prior to a cruise refundable? If so, how far in advance must the excursion cancellation be made. Thanks for your help! Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  3. I started it last week and the first hundred or so pages are somewhat tedious, but provide a valuable background. I am now in the French construction period and find the book more interesting as I move forward. My canal transit will be in a January on the Windstar Star Breeze, and this book will make the experience more interesting and meaningful! Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  4. The lack of piano time is the evening is an annoyance for us too. We enjoy relaxing with a drink and music before going into dinner in the MDR. Last year there was a brief window of music which ended about 7:00. We found out the 'break" lasted two or so hours. We like Oceania's low-key, classy ambiance, but this is an area for improvement. We gave our feedback and I hope others will too.
  5. Oceania is more low-key than cruise lines such as Princess and Celebrity , and there are very few children. The adult demographic is older, but in my opinion, the average passenger is more healthy and fit. Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  6. Cartagena looks like an excellent DIY port. The Toms Port Guides website has an excellent profile of Cartagena. Here is the link. http://www.tomsportguides.com/uploads/5/8/5/4/58547429/cartagena-spain-08-20-2013.pdf
  7. Where does Oceania dock in Lisbon? Knowing which cruise terminal would be a big help in determining whether to take a tour or go DIY. Thanks you for input.
  8. Thank you all for your excellent advice. Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  9. For a first-time port of call in Lisbon, should we concentrate our one day in Lisbon itself or add Sintra to a tour? I know Sintra is wonderful, but also do not want to spread ourselves too thin.
  10. We will likely book the same cruise. I suggest you go on to the "Roll Call" on Cruise Critic for the cruise,and state your interests, and look for passengers looking for people to join a tour, or join one you are organizing. It is still early so there is not a lot of activity yet. Meanwhile, on Trip Advisor in "Things to Do" on the Bordeaux forum you will see tour companies offering the sort of day tours you want.
  11. Thank you again for the information. Minatur Wunderland then the central city in one day looks very doable.
  12. Thank you for all the information which is a huge help for planning our day in Hamburg. Is there a bus or tram line that goes from the Rathaus area to the Altona cruise terminal? Is it easy to get a taxi in Hamburg?
  13. Dora the Hamburg Hop on-Hop off bus stop at Altona cruise port and near Miniatur Wunderland?
  14. After spending a morning at Miniatur Wunderland in Hamburg., we would like to see some of the city. Are taxi drivers in Hamburg amenable to driving around for a look at the city before dropping us off back at the ship? We are not looking for a guide, just a driver who will point sights out. What kind of a price should we expect per hour in Hamburg?
