  1. See this: https://www.tripadvisor.com/ShowTopic-g3575948-i28159-k12846530-Tel_Aviv_Sheraton-Tel_Aviv_District.html
  2. I believe that the reason it disappeared is that TripAdvisor's policy is that it only publishes reviews from people who have taken a tour (or stayed at a hotel or eaten at a restaurant). In this case, the poster did not take the tour.
  3. We had two fantastic days with CJays Tours in December 2018, as our ship spent overnight in Tauranga. First day we visited Waitomo Glowworm Caves and Hobbiton. Second day we did Redwood Forest Tree Walk, Blue and Green Lakes, and Te Puia in Rotorua. I highly recommend them.
  4. Creating a mock booking, I get a lower price with two one ways (departure only and return only) than I get with a round trip. Is it possible to book two one ways on EZAir?
  5. I sure hope you're not trying to select seats for a Virgin Atlantic flight on the VA (Virgin Australia) website!! I suggest you go to the VS (Virgin Atlantic) website. You might have better luck!
  6. You should really reconsider your choice of cruise tour. The 10 day is too short, and you likely will not have sufficient time to get into Denali Park. Find a cruise tour that stays a minimum of 2 nights at Denali so that you can actually get into the park.
  7. We did this trip by free shuttle from port, walking from shuttle terminus to the train station, and taking the bus from adjacent to train station, but our port day was longer. I think you have plenty of time, but how much money do you want to spend? If budget is not a limiting factor, then you could either (1) go all the way from Marseille port to Aix-en-Provence via Uber, with fare estimate of 41-54 euro, or (2) take Uber to the train station, and then take train the rest of the way, with Uber fare estimate of 15-19 euro to train station. I don't think you have sufficient time to wait for the free shuttle. Try to get off the ship as close to 0700 as possible. If you see a taxi, then take it to the train station. Otherwise, consider an Uber either to the train station or all the way to Aix-en-Provence. If budget is a limiting factor, then wait for the free shuttle, and stay in Marseille.

    Offbeat Rome?

    I recommend the following: 1. bike riding on the via Appia Antica on Sunday 2. Villa Farnesina. This is a beautiful villa that is decorated with Raphael's (and others) frescoes, including numerous trompe l'oiel. 3. Palazzo Doria Pamphilj. This beautiful palazzo houses a private gallery of works by such artists as Carvaggio and Raphael. 4. Domus Aurea. This was Emperor Nero's palace and is now an archaeological restoration site with virtual reality. It's a great place to visit in the heat of the summer, because it's underground and therefore self- air conditioned!
  9. Assuming you are referring to the 2 May 2020 Brilliance of the Seas sailing, I suggest you reserve the $299 Air2Sea BA flight from AMS to MIA, then either rent a car one way, take the bus, or book another flight from MIA to Tampa. Most people would not think that $299 is expensive for this flight.
  10. Don't book the TWT. It's too expensive, especially with kids. Book the 1400 NPS shuttle to the Eielson Visitor Center. This shuttle will get you further into the park than the TWT, costs much less for the adults, and will be FREE for kid 15 and under.
  11. Rent bicycles and do the Nelson to Mapua ride: https://nelsoncyclehire.co.nz/one-day-mapua/
  12. If you look at the company's website you will find that this is NOT a licensed tour company for Israel (no documentation of certification by Ministry of Tourism). As such, it is illegal for them to provided guiding services. I urge other cruisers in the future not to risk their limited time on an unlicensed, illegally operating tour company, when there are so many superlative licensed companies and private guides available. You might end up with a similar result to that described above.
  13. We rented in Bar Harbor at Acadia Bikes and took the free shuttle from the Village Green. https://www.acadiabike.com/bike-rentals
  14. Is it possible to hold duplicate bookings? In other words, can one person be booked in two cabins simultaneously? We have a quad cabin booked and might have a 5th person join us. If so, we would move two people from the original quad into a double cabin and add the 5th person to the original quad to make it into a triple. I was thinking of just booking two of the current quad passengers into a separate double cabin now to reserve the room. Would that be possible, or would Princess not allow it?
  15. I really recommend that you find a cruise with a long port time in Juneau. Then book the Mendenhall Glacier Trek, which is the best active tour in Alaska that I have taken. https://beyondak.com/trips/mendenhall-glacier-trek/
