    There is a 6-day May 10, Barcelona to Monte Carlo.  Don’t know after that. 

    TER777, where can find out more information about this cruise? I don’t see it on Crystals website. Thanks.

  2. Someone posted on another thread (I’m sorry I cannot locate the thread now but it was back in September 2023), that there was a cruise departing on May 10, but I do not see it on Crystals site. Anyone have info on this? Thanks

    Which set of ruins? How much time in port?

     

    King David and Viator have tours to Altun Ha that are reasonably done within the typical cruise port day.  Tours to Xunantunich or Lamanai are further away and with any traffic delays you could run the risk of missing the last tender.

     

    Thank you. Sorry, we’re there from 7 AM until 6 PM. Which tour operator do you recommend to go to Xunantunich?

     

    I am assuming Caracol is out of the question.

  4. Hello, coming into Belize City on a cruise this week , will be here from 8 -5, and looking to go to a Mayan ruins. Want to with tour group or driver, rather than with the ship. Which ruins would recommend and how or who would you recommend get us there? Thanks.

    This sounds great, were there any shady spots on the beach or a place to rent chairs and umbrella?

    I rented 2 chairs and umbrella. Since it was later in the afternoon I haggled and he dropped the price. I don't recall any shady areas on the beach.

    I've checked out this company and their page hasn't been updated since 2018. Are they still in business? Was your visit recent?

    Yes, we with them a few weeks ago when we were on the Celebrity Millennium... Great tour! Check out my review.

  7. GO TO taxi stand and Ask for Horace. Hopefully no one has snagged him yet. We met 2 other couples when we got off the ship that wanted to do the same thing. and For $25 per person he gave us an island tour and took us specifically to the Animal Flower Cave (my favorite), Bathsheba, Mushroom Rock,  Cherry Tree Hill viewpoint,  a drive by the Gun Hill Signal Station and then 2 hours at a beach on Carlisle Bay (beautiful beach and crystal clear water). 

    He will also drive by anywhere else you like if it is on the way.

  8. As soon as you get off the ship look for a big green open air truck. HAPPY HOPPY safari tours.  We were in Aruba last week. They have a great deal..$20 per person for Eagle beach Plus awesome island tour of the area with the Ayo Rock formations (my favorite),  the natural bridge, Gold Mill ruins, etc. We got to see other beaches, the California lighthouse, nice neighborhoods, Alto Vista Chapel, churches, government buildings, awesome viewpoints and natural wonders, a drive by the Ostrich Farm, squares, outdoor market and more with a couple hours at Eagle beach to finish things off. All for $20 p.p!

  10. Hi, we're leaving from St Maarten at the end of June and heading to Curacao for the day. When we arrive we would like to go to a close and beautiful public beach near the cruise ship port. Either a 20 minute walk or short taxi ride is fine.  I saw Avila Beach on the map. Would that be a good suggestion? Can we just lay our towels down or just rent a couple chairs and umbrella?

    Premium and Classic is the type of ferry - depending on departure time.

    If you want to do the cruise I’ll suggest that you book both the ferry and the shuttle bus at the web.

    Note that the ferry is sailing in both directions from Flåm and/or Gudvangen.

    The shuttle bus can be any type of bus - will be marked with a signin the front screen.

    In  addition to the shuttle also public busses - Nettbuss VY450 as well as Nor-way bussexpres NW162 and NW420. 

    Also available at the web.

    Thanks, how much is the public bus. Where do you by the bus ticket?

    Agree with mhb1757 - too tight schedule when 9am to 4pm- also depend on ship is docked or tendering.

    Both excursions are two hours - in addition shuttle from Gudvangen to Flåm 

    I have attached 2019 timetables assuming that times will be similar for 2020.

     

    The Flåm Railway 2019

    Fjord Cruise Nærøyfjord 2019

    Shuttle bus Aurland–Flåm–Gudvangen 2019

    Stegastein Viewpoint 2019

    Thanks for the great links!

    What is the difference between "premium low" and premium, and classic on the cruise.

    Also, for the shuttle buses, can you buy tickets from the driver? It is pretty obvious where to pick up the shuttle? What does it look like? 

    Thanks.

  13. I have read in some posts that some people do both the train and fjord cruise in one day. We are on the Celebrity Silhouette for one day in Flam on July 1 from 9am - 4pm. Looked online and based on current Flam railway and Nærøyfjord boat ride schedules I don't think we can do both on our own in that time frame if we have to be back on the I ship by  3:30, unless I am missing something? 

    Thanks
