  1. We actually saw this book for sale in several of the St Thomas gift shops...Perhaps you can contact one of them by a Google search.
  2. I'm sure you'll pick what works best for you in the end. Enjoy this trip with your daughter !!!
  3. Absolutely agree with this option. Contact TJ Travel..We (just the two of us with a driver & guide) had an amazing private tour with them. Well worth the cost and you'll be so glad you decided to see this amazing city with this company. After all this could end up being you're one and only trip to St Petersburg...make the most of it. !!!!
  4. There will be a shuttle bus option from the port to Gustav Adolf's square. We had one on our port visit there with RCI for a small roundtrip fee charged to our SeaPass account. Use this option as it's the easiest to get into town.
  5. This is certainly a very interesting itinerary. Best of luck booking and please come back after this amazing trip with your experience's..it will be quite the read as have the other's that have posted above.
  6. We always print out our SetSail Pass but never have felt the need to print out luggage tags...Easy to just get the sturdy/strong airline type from the terminal porter...Write your cabin number on them...attach to luggage...and you're good to go. Many times the porter's have a black sharpie and do this quickly and easily for you.
  7. If you do decide to do that 10:00am flight home day of cruise end...just do self-disembark which should put you at getting off the ship at 7:00am. Last September off Freedom in San Juan we had had so many flight changes with our AA flight home to LAX via MIA that we ended up with the 9:45am flight...We actually were the first off the ship...at SJU approx 7:20am ...through the agriculture check...checked in for our flight....and at our gate in plenty of time...Best of luck...hopefully you'll be fine.
  8. Our first trip to Rome we also did a private tour (just the two of us with a driver) using RomeInLimo...a great company and very popular on these boards.
  9. Yes they do....however who do you think has made huge investments in the port and it's new pier ?
  10. Hyatt Place is contracted for booking flight crews with several carriers.
  11. Well if RCI has that rule it certainly didn't apply to my Southern Caribbean cruise on Freedom last September. A large group of locals from San Juan brought their instruments onboard...one morning in particular they marched through the crowded WJ...RCI staff and many onboard weren't happy with this cruise and what went on during it at all.
  12. Glad it worked out for you...However did you also price those one way tickets with your cruiseline?..Many have said that's when good deals are had.
  13. Nice to know how the timing facts of the excursion policy works better than they do
  14. And approx an $18.00 taxi which will be lined up at the door of the Sheraton...The doorman might even ask if you want to share with another couple in line going to the same port. We've seen this situation a couple of times....Enjoy your cruise.
  15. I agree with the HOHO in Boston...no need to hop off as it's a great tour with wonderful commentary. Do take a walker to get from the terminal to the HOHO location...not far but better to have the additional mobility comfort aid as needed. You certainly don't have to pre-purchase the HOHO at all just wait until you get to the ticket kiosk...Once on the cruise play it by ear as you arrive into Boston.
  16. Well... now with that (5:40pm) time frame it opens up more options for you like JohninDc has suggested. Hmmm....I think you're on our cruise?
  17. If you wait that close it will be refunded as an OBC I believe and not as a credit back to the credit card you used.
  18. Depending on traffic anywhere from 20-30 min and taxi should be approx 35-39 Euros.
  19. Consolidator's (3rd party) ... Sorry I prefer to book directly with the carrier. Best of luck and take note of all the terms involved.
  20. I don't seem to be able to using Chrome...again... maybe just me...Perhaps someone will chime in and if so I'll know for sure. I just remember being able to on another link provided at one time.
  21. The OP's key word in title was "possible". Sorry you disagree with me offering a possibility. I have no problem "leaving it at that".
  22. Well that's too bad I personally would miss Skagway...seeing one glacier would be fine...either one it wouldn't matter. I would even be fine with skipping ISP rather than Skagway...but we all know the investment RCI has in ISP.
  23. Well maybe it's just me but when I page all the way to the bottom the option isn't there...perhaps I'm doing something wrong ?
