  1. How long did it take to get there and how long was the tour?
  2. We are stopping in Auckland, Bay of Islands, Tauranga, Piston and Wellington. We want to see Glow worms. Which port would be best to do this? Thank you in advance.
  3. Did anyone do the cable cars up? Is it manageable on our own?
  4. I know this is an old thread, but I just had to coment. I love the anchor and engine noises. The engine noise reminds me of our noise maker and the soft hum puts me to sleep. The anchor noise lets me know we are in port or leaving port. Since we usually book an inside noise, it's ideal for us. lol
  5. Agree. We aren’t rich and really worked & saved and have always lived on 1/2 our income so we were debt free by 45 and were able to retire at 57. That included driving vehicles for at least 10 years. Now the plan is to travel by ship, motorcycle or car for the next 10 years or so while we physically can. By the time the nursing home takes our savings, I don’t plan to give them much.
  6. I think we can handle the inside room, but if ever we plan to splurge, it would be on a WC. It's just so hard to spend an additional $12,000-$15,000 for cheapo me.
  7. Thanks all. We’ve always done an interior room. Fresh air would entice though. Has anyone done a world cruise on an inside room and would you do it again?
  8. We are looking at the 2022 Princess World Cruise and are hoping for similar Early Booking. Plus, Hubby will get military credit. Sgt, Major, can you advise what type of a room you book? We've always done an inside room for financial reasons as well as the only thing we do in a room (well, almost 😉 ) is sleep and change. But this will be a lot longer than our normal trip. We travel light as we are used to traveling double on a motorcycle. Thanks in advance.
  9. Sounds like I better wait until we are there and try to book last minute. Thank you for your answers
  10. We will be in San Juan January 9th on the Allure from 7 am - 1 pm ship time. We want to do a 2 hour excursion independent that starts at 10:30 and ends at 12:30 San Juan time, right next to the ship. Does the time stay the same for ship & island?
  11. Do the two hour Segway tour. So much fun, that I've done it twice. The office is close to the cruise ship too. You'll have to ask if the 9 year old is old enough though.
  12. I've done the segway tour twice. I'm in my late 50's and had no trouble. The segway office is the pier right next to where your cruise ship docks. Easy to find. You get instructions and get to practice in the courtyard before heading out. The tour itself is 2 hours and you get to see all the history while having fun. I highly recommend them. My husband has balance issues and couldn't go and we were refunded our money for him.
  13. I am bumping this up as we will also be looking for something to do with our 3 year old granddaugher and 5 year old grandson.
