Terry, I read that you booked an independent tour when you visited Jerusalem last year. Our cruise in November docks at Haifa port in Israel. Itinerary says we dock at 6:00 AM. I was hoping that we could get off the ship at 7:00 AM and meet our tour guide on the pier. Based on prior experience, do you think an hour after docking is sufficient time to get off the ship. I understand that passengers who book a tour through Oceania are allowed off first. Being as this is a much smaller ship that we are accustomed to, wasn't sure if an hour was enough. Thoughts, please
PS I contacted your tour guide for Jerusalem and he was already booked, but he did refer me to another tour guide that he said was very good. So, thanks for all the information.
