  1. Would love some input. I am booked for a shore excursion in Napier to Cape Kidnappers for a Gannet Safari. My cruise begins in Auckland and I'm doing a 3-day pre-cruise tour of Auckland. I was reading that tour discussion last night and read this in the description: "Muriwai Beach on the rugged west coast. A stop is made on the cliff tops overlooking the beach. From here there is a walk of approximately 250 metres, through native plants, to the lookout. At the lookout you will be able to see the gannet colony. This is one of only two mainland gannet colonies in the world. You will be very clo
  2. Marc, where did you find this info. I'm on Regent Voyager next year and trying to figure out which port we're at. I'm hoping it's not Phy My. Jamie
  3. Have you joined the Roll Call for the cruise? I'm doing Auckland to Hong Kong and there are 2 roll calls that I see, one for Auckland to Shanghai (now Japan) and one for Bali to Hong Kong.
  4. Does anyone know where Regent Seven Seas docks in Ho Chi Minh City? I'll be on Seven Seas Voyager. Thanks, Jamie
  5. I'm taking a Regent Seven Seas cruise that ends in Hong Kong on March 1st. I realize it's a way off but I'm getting nervous about all that is going on in Hong Kong. I'll be spending a few extra days there at the end. I have a friend whose parents live in Hong Kong and she was just visiting them. I asked her if I should be concerned and she said she thinks once school's back in session, the protests will end. Has anyone been to Hong Kong recently? What's your experience? Thanks, Jamie
  6. I've used Tours by Locals before and they're great, just expensive. Thanks.
  7. Hello. On RSSC Voyager in February with a day and half at Laem Chabang. I've been to Bangkok before so am looking for a private tour guide for the Laem Chabang/Pattaya area. Do you have any recommendations? Thanks.
  8. When I was in Sydney last year, I took a private tour to the Blue Mountains with Sydney Private Day Tours. They were fabulous, I highly recommend. In fact I have 2 tours booked with them next January. http://www.sydneyprivatedaytours.com.au/
  9. Will be booking shore excursions soon for Regent Seven Seas Voyager that stops in Ho Chi Minh City. There are 2 different Mekong Delta excursions and I'm not sure which to take. I'm pasting descriptions below. Feedback greatly appreciated. The first tour is included at no cost - the 2nd tour has a cost of $149. Looking at maps, it seems to me that the first tour might not have much time on the actual river but I'm not sure. Any advice greatly appreciated. Thanks, Jamie Tour 1, no cost, 7 hours: Departing the pier, drive to the delta port of My Tho where the exploration on the Meko
  10. I will have 2 days where we are docked at Laem Chabang in Thailand, which is a good 2 hour drive to Bangkok. I've been to Bangkok before (and loved it), but for at least one of the 2 days would prefer to do something closer to the cruise port. Not finding a lot from googling or ships's shore excursions. Any suggestions or experiences? Jamie traveling on Regent Seven Seas Auckland to Hong Kong Jan 2020
  11. Has anyone done the shore excursion to Cape Kidnappers? Is it worth it? Can you describe the experience please. Thanks. Jamie traveling on Regent Seven Seas Auckland-Hong Kong Jan 2020
