  1. Thank you for this info!!
  2. We sail on QM2 in early August. Does anyone know what they charge for internet? Are there any specials on internet minutes offered during the cruise?
  3. We will be stopping in Dublin, Cork, Waterford (Dunmore E) and Belfast in September. Has anyone just hired a taxi for touring in any of these areas? There are 4 of us and we really prefer to skip the "bus full of tourist" experiences. Any recommendations for private tours? Thanks
  4. We are taking the QM2 from NYC to Southampton UK this summer. We will then be spending 6 wks traveling Europe. We would like to ship a suitcase with our formal wear back to the US. Has anyone used a luggage shipping service. I found Luggage Forward will actually come to the port and pick up the bags. Thoughts?
  5. 4 of us are taking a TA cruise that leaves from Amsterdam and visits 4 ports in Ireland ( Dublin, Waterford/Dunmore E., Belfast and Cork) before crossing the pond. Are taxis readily available at these ports that we can hire for private tours or is it best to book ahead with a tour company? Suggestions of which private tour company we should use would be most appreciated
  6. Has anyone done this food tasting tour in Cozumel? It has good ratings on Trip Advisor but was wondering if any fellow cruisers have tried it.
  7. Great photos. We used the door hanger for ordering room service last night and it arrived on time and hot. Yea! Dinner at Givonni last night was good, not spectacular but good. The best part of the meal was the eggplant parm appetizer. Jazz quartet in Jazz on 4 was very good. Just wish they had more live music earlier in the evening. All in all a much better day than yesterday.
  8. We are on this cruise too. So far, it's been up and down. The ship is amazing! So much to see and do. I'm not a big complainer when it comes to cruising. Heck, I'm on a cruise and people are waiting on me but this cruise seems very disorganized. We went to dinner at Icon last night. We were seated about 20 minutes after our reservation. No napkins on the tables. No big deal. Waiter brought some when we asked for them. Then the Aqua show was cancelled last night due to illness and rescheduled to a night we had made reservations at chops so we had to go down and change the reservation this morning. Again, things happen. We wanted to have breakfast on our balcony this morning so we ordered room service last night via the tv. Unfortunately, after 45 minutes past the scheduled delivery time we still had no breakfast. I called down and after being on hold 15 min I was told it would be another half hr.( Hummmm I'm starting to see a pattern here). We cancelled room service and went to Johnny Rockets. Cold eggs, under cooked bacon and bread dried out but not toasted made for a nasty breakfast. We walked around a bit and decided to go to Saber for some guacamole however when we ordered this we were told they had no avocados to make guacamole! Really??!! No avocados and we just left port yesterday? The Waiter said they hope to get some in Cozume. All in all, none of these things are horrible but it does make me wonder what is going on. I just hope they get their act together soon.
  9. We are sailing on the Oasis in November. DH does not like buffets so I was wondering if anyone knows other options for lunch after we board. We don't mind paying for lunch if it means a less crowded venue. Thanks
  10. 4 of us will be stopping in Ocho Rios in Nov. All of us are in our 60s. Our friends are not swimmers and none of us want to just sit at a beach all day. Not interested in zip lines or horseback riding. Any suggestions for tours or things to do?
  11. We just returned from our cruise last week and booked with Cosol after reading so much about him on this board. He was great. The day we were in St Lucia (Jan 14, 2008) he had 4 vans. He drove our van and was both very informative and entertaining. All the vans go together so at each stop he entertained and informed everyone. He was very skilled at beating the cruise ship tours so we had no waits or crowds. He was great fun and we were thought the tour exceeded those offered through the ship and about half the price of the cruise ship tour prices. He was extremely careful to get us back in plenty of time. You'll see the entire island and have some beach time too. I'd use definitly use him again.
