  1. We flew into Zurich 2 years ago before our viking river cruise from Basel. We took the train to from Zurick to Lucerne, then Interlaken, Laussane, Bern, and Basel. We stayed at each city 2 nights average ($200) per night. There are many trains each day and we did not need reservations, we traveled the end of October. It was very easy to navigate and I had researched it every place before we left. We stayed at hotels near the train station so we could walk and had a large carryone suitcase. We would definitely do this again maybe to different cities. Lucerne was our favorite and from Interlaken we took a day trip on the train to the Jungfrau region.
  2. Who should we ask for wine glasses. We asked the steward and he said we could get them from the bar. We did that a few times and then they said get it from your Steward, asked the front desk and they said call room service. Before we have always just picked up 2 from the bar.
  3. Does anyone know if Taxis' on Moorea take anything other than the local currency.
  4. I think I tried both of these and one was booked with the ship tours, and the other was only doing tours.
  5. Has anyone taken a taxi to the Hilton Hotel and back. I'm wondering if it is difficult to get a taxi in Moorea. We want to do a day pass there. I have tried local charter coompanies and they are booked with the cruiseline.
  6. Has anyone taken the local bus to Waikiki and back. We did it quite a few years ago but I'm not sure where the closest bus stop is.
  7. We have always been welcomed in the lounge before dinner. We are going on a cruise with a lot of sea days and hopefully this hasn’t changed. I read a comment recently that a ship was only allowing elites.
  8. My mistake, we do Board on the 11th for Trade Routes, we leave SD on the 10th. I am ready to go now!
  9. We get on the ship Wednesday and can hardly wait.
  10. How do you get to the Hilton from the tender port. Is it easy? We are on a princess cruise.
  11. We took the train from Victoria station (we were staying in Kensington and took a cab to Victoria station) and it was very easy. Bought tickets ahead of time online and took the direct train. It was very cheap but you need to have the credit card you booked the tickets with. The taxi was very cheap to the cruise terminal from the train station. Our ship would have been very difficult to walk to and we are big walkers.
  12. Ate at Alfredo’s on sapphire last week and very few people there. They would not let us bring a salad from the international cafe because of cross contamination. We would not go back.
  13. We did a tour with Xuan Le in Nha Trang and Saigon and he was excellent. Best tour guide we have ever had. He even bought fruit for us to try. We saw so many sites and he explained everything that we did. You can’t go wrong with Xuan!
