  1. we will be in Papaette over night on our cruise. I assume that means that something is going on late in the evenings but I cannot find a single activity at night. What am I missing? Doug
  2. we will be docking at Pt chalmers and wonder if there are shuttles or local buses to get to Dunedin? Doug
  3. spunks

    Ovation from Singapore

    thanks to everyone for the information. Doug
  4. Thanks for the reply......uh.....where is the octogon? Doug
  5. I understand that there is a bus right outside the Port gate. Where does this bus go?....is it a HoHo type or regular city bus? What is the best way to get to the casino and brewery? Thanks Doug
  6. We have only done 19 TA's to date, so I dont claim to be an expert.....but there is so much to do on the ships on the sea days you will discover you have to make some hard choices on which activity to pick. During the daytime the weather will likely be cold....and VERY windy.... Be warned.....once you start doing TA's you will not want to do anything else.....enjoy Doug
  7. Where does RCCL dock in Singapore? Thanks you for your help Doug
  8. the big question is why would you even consider taking a ships tour? You are on Cruise Critic....go to the thread of your cruise and you will find MANY private tours set up by your fellow passengers that are cheaper by half with less people and better guides. Doug
  9. sorry for the question.....but the $10.00 minimum to top the card off....is that Australia dollars?..
  10. We have a large group from our neighborhood (over 40) and have been booked with Alla for quite a while but they seem to be having some issues with the way we are to pay them. My question is simply...how did you pay them? We have no problem paying with credit card, but the way they want us to do it leaves us a bit uncomfortable. Thank you for any information you have. We have used credit cards and ATM machines all over Europe, so that is not the issue. Doug
  11. Malaga....if you are lucky....I am not sure of the date you will be there, but if it is later in November you can see them light their Christmas lights....far and away the best Christmas light display in all of Europe....also, be sure and drop in to the Casa de la Guardia....best sherry bar in Malaga...right off the main street Doug
  12. ok, if they dont give you a card anymore, how do you work the slot machines? If they do work the slot machines, what keeps someone that finds a lost one from running up a big bill and (I always wanted to use this word in a sentence) absconding with the ill gotten gains? I was just joking about using a "found"medallion in the Casino....no way to get away with that....but I do want to know what you use now for the slot machines. Doug
  13. On the Royal they had on demand first run movies and TV shows like Ray Donovan etc 2 years ago. Does the Regal have the same deal?.....it was great. Thanks Doug
  14. I wish the cruise lines would simply raise the price of every cruise by $25.00 per person per day and then not allow any tipping whatever. That way I would no longer be subsidising those cheap skates that like the cheap cruise prices but dont feel like tipping. That way no matter whether tipping is customary where ever one is from, the staff will be fairly compensated and I will not be carrying an unfair burden. Doug
  15. we have taken several of the free tours and found them to be wonderful....Very knowledgeable guide that are very proud and enthusiastic. The tours are great and you will not regret making that decision. I cannot recommend them more strongly. Doug
