    Parking at Brooklyn terminal for westbound crossing

    Here’s the response I received from the Brooklyn cruise terminal. I guess we’ll be parking at the airport... ————————————— Good morning - sorry we do not accept vehicles on non-cruise days. Sent from my iPhone using Forums

    Parking at Brooklyn terminal for westbound crossing

    Thanks for the info. I’ll give them a call, since that is a bit unclear if it’s possible to park when it isn’t an arrival/departure day. I’d be trying to park there about 10 days before my westbound transatlantic so the car is there when I return. Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  4. Good morning, Does anyone out there have any experience with parking their vehicle at the Brooklyn Cruise terminal before a westbound crossing so that the car is conveniently waiting nearby when the crossing is over? I just wasn’t sure if they allow you to park on days where there isn’t a cruise departure. I was planning on parking the car, then getting a ride to JFK for the flight to Europe. Anyone out there ever done this for a westbound QM2 crossing? Any feedback would be appreciated! Steve Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  5. Hi guys, We’re cruising the Baltics on RCCL out of Southampton in June. (Navigator) When we cruise out of US ports, we have gotten in the habit of putting cash towards our onboard account rather than a credit card. (We have credit cards...we just feel we have a better handle on our onboard spending this way.) Anyhow, is it possible to do this on a European cruise? If so, what currency do they prefer at check in? I would assume GBP, since we leave out of the UK? If anyone has any experience with this, any feedback would be appreciated!

    Wonderful Copenhagen 2017 edition.

    Hello, everyone. We will be docking on a Sunday in June at Oceankaj (berth 333, I believe) The wife and I are planning on just strolling around central Copenhagen for the day, and possibly taking a canal cruise from Nyhavn. A couple questions...do the cruise lines have a shuttle to take guests into central Copenhagen, or would the public bus/taxi be a better option? I think I read somewhere that the 26 bus doesn’t operate on Sundays. We’re not really operating on any specific schedule, we’d just like a simple way to get to the central part of town for a few hours. Suggestions? Thanks in advance Steve Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  9. Haha...what are the odds of that?!? See you on board! [emoji568][emoji568] Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  10. We’ll see you on board...we’re on the June 15th departure from Southampton as well! Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  11. Very nice pictures! Did you notice more motion than normal way up there? (I actually hope the answer is “yes”!) Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  12. Hello, all Does anyone have any feedback on the Panoramic Oceanview cabins on deck 12 of Navigator? We snagged 1802...the one looking directly out over the bow for our Baltic cruise in June. Seems like a very quiet area, being behind the spa and all. Anyone stayed in them? Love to hear your experiences. Steve Sent from my iPhone using Forums

    Gift Certificate vs. OBC

    Thanks for the info, guys...much appreciated! Steve Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  14. Hello, Quick question. Is it possible to call RCCL or the travel agent and add a certain amount of OBC directly to our account, or does one have to buy a gift certificate and then redeem said gift certificate to receive OBC? The website is a bit muddy in regards to this. On other lines, I’ve been able to just purchase OBC directly, but in our cruise planner it only shows gift certificates for sale. Any insight? Thanks in advance, Steve Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  15. We’re on a Northern Capitals cruise next summer on RCCL. Looking for tips on how to deal with all the different currencies. It looks like we’ll be using Pounds, (not an issue, since we’ll be in the UK for a few days) Danish Kronur, Norwegian Kronur, Euro (for Helsinki and Tallinn) and Rubles for St. Petersburg. Obviously, credit cards will be the way to go for the majority of purchases, but will it be possible to exchange small amounts of cash to use for transportation, restaurants, etc. while we’re in ports? Will merchants in Scandinavia (or Russia) accept Euros? Any tips from anyone who has dealt with this issue would be appreciated! Thanks, guys Sent from my iPhone using Forums
