  1. This happened to me when I accidentally used a VPN and the location delivering the VPN was in the UK. The website checks where your network traffic is coming from and loads the version for that location. I would suggest double checking your network setting and VPN. It drove me crazy until I figured out that I had VPN's into my companies UK site.
  2. So sorry to hear this Jan and Shari! My thoughts and prayers are with her and your whole family!
  3. We will be in Auckland in November and are looking for a half day tour that will pick us up at our hotel and drop us off at the airport after. We will have done some sightseeing the prior day and a half. On area we are interested in is Rotorua. Any recommendations of tour companies? thanks, Charlotte
  4. Antiche Figura (sp), near the Piazza Roma and across from the Train station on the Grand Canal.
  5. +1 for the Intercontinental! Plus you can watch your ship arrive!
  6. We were on Sirena last November returning to MIA on the Amazon Cruise. We cleared customs in Puerto Rico, so did not have to do that in MIA. BUT, Sirena was late in arriving in MIA and then a medical emergency had to be disembarked, so regular disembarkation was delayed by 2 hours. So things may go smoothly or there may be glitches. I always opt for a noon or later flight for the added buffer. Charlotte
  7. Congratulations Bob and Betsey! Thank you for sharing your journey of finding each other with all of us. Best wishes for a long and happy future! Charlotte
  8. I must admit, I am missing the daily updates from Bob and the othe RTW cruisers. Where are y’all now?
  9. Congratulations to both Bob and Betsy! Best wishes for a fast recovery!
  10. Adding my prayers for Bob! I have looked forward to his posts each day to vicariously be part of the RTW cruise. Please try to keep us all posted as he improves. charlotte
  11. Did your status update online prior to receiving your cards? My sister applied for renewal in April and her status online is still in processing....
  12. Has anyone used and recommend an Arrival Airport Concierge Service? We are arriving at 5am in Oct 28 and I am thinking after such a long journey, such a service might be a good idea. Thanks! charlotte
  13. We were in Capetown in December of 2017 and used www.ilios.co.za. They will customize for you. We did Table Mountain (couldn't get to the top due to crowds) lots of the other natural sites, The Government gardens and Museum and they dropped us off at the airport. We really enjoyed the tour and I would recommend them. Charlotte
  14. I will always remember on one cruise our last port was an overnight in Istanbul. We arranged to leave for the airport at 5am on the second morning and Dottie was there with a bright smile to wish us well and say goodbye! It was 3 hours before normal/formal disembarkation. Definitely left a lasting fond memory with me.
  15. Concerning the Burj Al Arab, I visited it 4 years ago while visiting my Nephew and family. It is spectacular! At the time the only way you were allowed on the driveway up to the hotel is if you had a confirmed reservation for a room or in a restaurant/high tea. They had a guard post and traffic arm at the street entrance to the driveway up to the hotel. They may have decide to offer tickets to sightsee, but I suspect advanced purchase is required. Charlotte
