  1. When do they charge the corkage fee - at the check in security line or when you bring it to the restaurant? How can they charge you if you open it yourself in your room and drink it there?
  2. When is it due to be completed and back to sailing? We are on June 30
  3. We’re on the June 30 sailing. I hope things are resolved by then! This is our first river cruise...
  4. We did it with an independent tour company. There would have been plenty of time, but they left almost 2 hr late due to waiting for a couple to show up who had reservations (they never showed, so we had the tour all to ourselves). It was a fantastic trip down the river to the ruins. The guide was fantastic and brought our lunch to eat at the ruins. We had a mad dash in his car after getting off the river on the way back to the tender dock, but he raced down alleys and side streets at breakneck speed getting us to the dock just as the last tender was getting ready to pull out! We were very nervous about missing the boat but this was the closest we have ever come with an independent tour company. They guarantee you get back in time. It was the fault of the people that didn't show, and if we had left on time it would have been no problem. I would book independently again however, the money saving is substantial and having a smaller group is a major plus.
  5. Hopefully they get this contained - we are due to sail on her Feb 3! We just had this same problem in October on Jewel of the Seas out of Rome. We couldn't get in our cabins until evening because they were deep cleaning everything on the ship.
  6. Does anyone know if you are allowed to bring food off the ship when disembarking in Barcelona? (Norwegian Spirit) We wanted to bring something to eat on the train from the ship when we left (muffin, sandwich, etc.) but were not sure if this was okay. I know some ports have those dogs that sniff out contraband and they make you throw it away.
  7. thank you for the information!
  8. Does anyone have recommendations for transfer companies from Paris city center hotel to CDG airport? We have heard that taxis do not come in a timely fashion to our hotel even when they are ordered at a set time. Don't want to chance missing our flight waiting for a taxi to arrive.... Also, how much time should be allowed for a 10:40 flight.
  9. We are disembarking in Barcelona (ship arrives 5 am). How much time should we allow to get to the train station for a 9:30 train to Paris? Not sure how far from the terminal the train station is, or how complicated it is to find our train.... Any info is appreciated. We plan to just carry our luggage off the ship.
