    Cool Cruiser
  1. Has anyone been in the Grand Suite on the Star Princess? Some people said it was noisier than the side suites. Just wanted to find out which were the best ones. Thanks in advance for any feedback.
  2. Still trying to find out about the Bosphorus cruise. Can you by your tickets ahead of time or get in a line up? I ask as there seems to be only one night one a week, Saturday nights during the summer and I can see it being very full. Any help would be appreciated.

    Glass bottom boat ride

    I read that there was a glass bottom boat ride out of Portinax Ibiza, that was suppose to be good value. Has anyone done this and if so how was it? Any replies would be appreciated as we are trying to plan a day of our cruise on Ibiza.
  4. We're going to be in istanbul a few days after our cruise and wondered if any readers had done the "night cruise on the Bosphorus" by IDO. If so can you buy your tickets ahead of time since it is just on Saturday nights? I'd appreciate ANY replies!!

    Rome Cabs vs. Rome Cab

    We have used Rome Cabs twice in the past and they were TERRIFIC!! There were four of us setting off on a cruise with tons of luggage but were met with an appropriate sized car and taken to our hotel. The next day at an agreed upon time the driver picked us up at the hotel and took us to the port. No fuss, no muss, no bother!! The drivers were wonderful and the dealings with Stefano were great. My e-mails with questions re: times, costs or anything else in general, were answered almost immediately. A GREAT company to deal with.

    Early flight from Venice!!

    At the moment we(2 couples) have a seven am flight out of Venice. My question is, "what time should we be thinking to leave the hotel(as yet unbooked) and how should we plan to get to the airport" I guess an alternative plan would be to book a hotel near the airport, but that defeats the romance of staying in Venice doesn't it. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!
  9. We are booking a cruise from Venice to Athens with stops in Egypt, Isreal etc. My question is, which side of the ship should we book?? It seems to me, land is always off the port side on this route. Is that good or bad?? Thanks in advance for any advice.
  10. Does anyone have a good company to use for transfers from the airport to Rome and then the next day to the cruise port? There will be four of us with all the accompanying luggage. Any help will be appreciated!!

  12. Can anyone suggest a good means of transportation from Southampton to London? There will be two couples and the appropriate luggage for a two week cruise. Any help would be appreciated as we are all first timers in England.

    Rates from airport to Rome

    http://www.samilimousine.com/rates.htm Came across this company's web site and it looked quite good. Has anybody ever used them (or even heard of them)? Thinking about rates for 2 couples (and luggage) from airport to city centre and then in two days to the port. Any help would be appreciated!!
