  1. Separate. beverage goes to bar staff and DSC covers waiters, stewards,and other dining room staff.
  2. Two off the wall suggestions. The food hall inside La Cote Ingles has a full wine section. Also Carrefour on Las Ramblas. It’s a big supermarket with a full wine selection at great prices
  3. Crowne Plaza Place de la Republique near Malais and short walk near a lot of tourist attractions including Louvre
  4. Escalate to YC Director . You are there and paying for a product and service. Not to settle!
  5. Just think Beatles Magical Mystery Tour. No solid idea until on board
  6. If lucky 75 minutes. Do self carry and hope you get off 730
  7. Why would I wear a name tag on vacation and get hassled?
  8. As a NY native I would not hire a car for the Rockefeller Center tree or Saks ad where it’s located on 5th Avenue is a parking lot during that time. Take public transportation plus the view is better
  9. In Barcelona cabs cannot operate if machine not working
  10. Credit card friendly. Mainly Visa or Mastercard not so much Discover or Amex
  11. Actually they do. Per conversation with a senior staff, corporate monitors the DSC and reasons given. It then falls back on on board senior staff
  12. I’m paying for service not to be understanding. To wait until after 4 for a semi clean room, no! If enough folks have conversations with management and pull the first day DSC, then will come with a solution fast including hiring more or make “ management “ assist.

  14. Get at cruise port . Very easy and a helluva cheaper than pre booking a card. Most if not all taxis use cards.
  15. Do! New Yorker suggestion. Go to Stella 34 on the 6th floor at Macys . Great viewing and best pizza
  16. The metro and port are not that close, especially for the"mature" and those with mobility issues. I would spring for the cab in Athens. Make sure hotel calls it for you.
  17. I hear these complaints and know corporate has already factored dissatisfaction in. The only thing they understand is to quote the Lizzio song, “ walk your fine a** out the door “ and go to another cruise line.
  18. To clarify for no Ny’ers. Cabbies call the taxi commission a kangaroo court as any complaint is up to the cabbie to prove their innocence and most complaints result in a hefty fine and loss or suspension of license
  19. Easy go to taxi stand right outside terminal and ask dispatcher as depending where hotel is flat rate around 30 euros. Cabbie tend to be relatively honest as the Barcelona authorities make the NYC taxi commission look like choir boys if they get caught cheating a tourist at airport
