  1. Thanks to all for the great advice. It's amazing there are 3 or 4 different types of public transportation in the Baltimore, DC area, each serving a different geographic area but also overlapping somewhat. It's going to make a very interesting decision-making process to compare all the hotel prices with the amenities they offer, and taking into consideration their proximity to various train/light rail routes. 🙂
  2. One more thing to add to my request: we will have a car, so we don't want to stay in a hotel in downtown Baltimore or Inner Harbor that charges $30~40 a day for parking. We are willing to stay a little farther out of the city so that we can park for free, then drive to the nearest MARC station and do a free park&ride. (Obviously don't want to be too far out of the city.) Thank you for any suggestion you guys may have.
  3. Hi, my family will extend the cruise vacation by a few days afterward. We want to stay in a long-term-stay type of hotel (Residence Inn, Towne Place Suites, Homewood Suites, or similar type with free breakfast and a kitchen) and do some sightseeing in Baltimore and in Washington DC. Based on my research, the best way to go into DC is via MARC train. So I would like to get recommendations on hotels that are near a MARC station that I can park&ride for free. Any advice? Thanks.
  4. My extended family will be on Veendam at Amber Cove on Nov 29. 6 or 7 of us are planning to take the taxi to 27 waterfalls. I have read in other reviews that the taxi driver will stay at the park and drive us back. The person who wrote the review said that he/she left their phones and wallets in the taxi. Have anybody else done that? I find this slightly risky and nerve-wrecking. I also heard the park has locker that we can rent. Does anybody know the price and the size of the locker? I will probably feel better leaving the valuables in the locker, but I also don't want to offend the t
  5. Thanks. The place closes at 3 PM, and our ship docks at 11 AM. By the time we get off and take the taxi to get there, it will be about 1. We won't have time to do all 27 anyway.
  6. I read in a few threads on this board that due to drought conditions, the 27 Waterfalls only had 12 that were open. That was during the summer of 2019. Now it's Nov, and my family are on a Holland America cruiseship Veendam that will stop at Amber Cove on Nov 29. I am wondering if the drought condition has improved? If anybody knows the latest condition, or knows where I can find out, please let me know. Thanks.
