  1. I’m planning my January Quantum cruise and have tried to make a list with the 18 onboard for 'Complimentary Dynamic Dining', 'Complimentary and casual-service' as well as 'Specialty dining options available for an additional charge', in order to plan my dining options.

    Hope I got them all right.

  2. Oh well, without starting a new topic the only other thing I got, and some will bash me for this, lol, but YouTube! Yes, it is the most popular, but gosh I wish more people knew about and used Vimeo!

    Really good topic that certainly needs to be discussed in this forum.

    I am one of those who uses Youtube - I have a Vimeo account, but have not used their services - and at the time I started, I fand Youtube easier. Recognizing that there are annoying ads - but then Youtube the other hand free to use for an annual payment on Vimeo.

    But I would really like to know what Vimeo can offer compared to Youtube

  3. As by ECCruise - no elevator - Darwin Restaurant is at deck 3 while the Discovery Lounge and exit to outer decks are on deck 4 - Stairs not that step or high.

    Just note that Xpedition is never docked - so you need to do a panga ride from the pier to the ship when arriving. As well all excursions are by panga - however, Crew is however very, very helpful so doable.

  4. I have been driving few times from Newark to Boston - under normal circumstances it should take four hours - but it can also be 5 hours.

    But why drive from Newark to Boston rather than flying infer Boston Airport.

    Do not plan to fly into USA the same day as the cruise does start.

  5. Is it just me or are some of you plain tired of watching jerky videos on youtube of cabins, suffering vertigo as we delve deeply into closet space and floor space???? Please, give us some perspective of the entire room! :rolleyes:

    Makes sense, but often difficult to reproduce the correct impression of the cabin using an ordinary video recorder.. I welcome any comments to these videos:

  6. Last time I did pass TXL I had to go out and through security again - did have less than an hours and no problems. As mentioned a very small airport.

    Since both legs are AirBerlin there is absolute no problems - only if delays on the transatlantic - assuming that you are arriving at least one days ahead of you cruise.

  7. Do not know exact which ports - and 'krone' is different in Denmark, Sweden and Norway.

    Finland, Estonoa, Latvia are Euro land - and you can use Euro in most cities round Baltic. And USD is St. Petersburg.

    Have som Euro and USD - credit cards are widely accepted - only if you plan for public transportation and some museums you might need local 'Kroner'

  8. No reason to panic yet - the Bárðarbunga eruptions is not expected to produce the abundant fine ash capable of being transported long distances through the atmosphere as for the Eyjafjoell eruption in April 2010

    I was flying via Reykjavik April 19, 2010 from Boston to Stockholm - one of the few routes in operation in Europe during the eruption.
