  1. Does anyone know what days and times the 2 shows are performed on the NCL Sky 5 night itinerary Rock you tonight and Showdown? Trying to book specialty dining and don't want to overlap Thanks you
  2. I have a question about the LCV $ discount on internet packages - does anyone know if this can this be applied against the "Experience More" packages? thank you for any information J
  3. We used GV Tours in Puerto Montt and I highly recommend them. they answered my (many) inquiries promptly and patiently and were extremely accommodating. our guide was excellent - informative, answered all questions, great sense of humour. And the included empanadas and wine were delicious!
  4. We were in Ushuaia a few weeks ago and pre-rented a car with Budget- across street from port. we drove to Tierra del Fuego Park - entrance fee can be paid in pesos or by credit card- and explored the park, taking several of the shorter walks. the map you receive on entering is quite clear and gives details of each trail - most are one way so allow time for return. Also shows locations of parking areas, visitor centre, washrooms, etc others from our cruise took one of the “buses” to the park and back. They run every hour or so and have several drop off/pick up points throughout the park We picked up car at 9.30, spent a few hours at the Park (4 walks, had our passports stamped at End of World, and went to visitors centre to see the small interpretive Museum plus have a snack), drove back to town via the hills and ski area behind the town which gave us beautiful views over the whole bay, filled up with gas/petrol downtown and then returned the car at 4.30- just to give you an idea of timing. and we used credit card for all purchases so didn’t need to get pesos- most of the stores also took US$.
  5. We arrived 2 nights ago at 11pm and had prebooked with TaxiDatum. They answered emails promptly and our driver was waiting with our names on a sign. vehicle was clean and our driver was friendly and pointed out sights on our way to Miraflores
  6. thank you -taxi premium seem to have amazingly reasonable rates I’m waiting to see if Azamara are providing a shuttle but if not will taxi premium a call
  7. Which car service are you booked with and whatare their prices like? thank you for any information 😄
  8. which ship are you on? Our Azamara sailing Dec. 1 has just received notification that check in will be done at a Miraflores hotel and then Azamara will bus us to the port
  9. We did Ig. on our own - allow yourself enough time for disembarking and getting to airport- it’s not too far but BA port was a little crazy last time we were there, with long lines for taxis- so have transport pre booked. Holiday inn express Puerto Madero In Buenos Aires used to have a luggage storage- we took cab from ship, dropped our big luggage there, then flew to Ig. with just small bags. Then on return picked up bags and stayed there the night before flying back home. Definitely one full day to do Arg. Side of falls. We stayed in town and took the first bus out in the morning and got back to hotel around 6pm. after a non stop day. An amazing day. I even swam at the small beach on the island under the falls so wear a swim suit! Also plastic bags to protect phones, cameras etc- you will get wet from the spray! Take bug spray ! Keep an eye out for toucans in the trees, and avoid the monkeys! Enjoy!!
  10. We’ll be in one 1 December sailing so will post about our experience. Thank you for all your feedback
