  1. Generally prices onboard is US list excl. tax - so you will save US tax - depending on ports on call you might find better prices at land like in St. Maarten.

    Make sure that you know exact local prices on the configurations you want to buy and then check for the local Apple shops in advance.

  2. We've booked my time dining for each night of our cruise and reserved our times online. If we decide that we'd like to eat more casually and go to the Windjammer instead, should we let the dining room know that we won't be there, and if so, how much notice do they need. I'd imagine that it happens often.


    I always make the MT reservation at the web before the cruise and then I do confirm the reservations at the reservation desk in order to get a good table!

    - and then I change reservations as needed while on cruise - including cancellations.

    You need to cancel the reservation if not used.

  3. It might help if we know a bit more about where you live - your expectations etc.

    Assuming this is your first cruise my recommendation will be a Caribbean cruise from Fort Lauderdale, Miami, Tampa or Galvestone with Celebrity, Carnival or Royal Caribbean.

  4. I believe to qualify as a group you need at least eight cabins.

    Found this at RCCL.COM:

    We do offer a cruise credit for every 8 staterooms (with a minimum of 16 guests) that sail with your group. The cruise credit can be used towards the base cost of one person's fare in your group, or spread across one or more fares in your group. The cruise credit will be allocated in the stateroom category equal to the stateroom category in which there are the greatest number of staterooms that sail in your group.

  5. Don't forget to look at flight schedules - flying in and out of different airports in Europe as well as the cost of flying from South to North in Europe will also add to the costs of the trip.

    Maybe you can find cruises out of Amsterdam, Southampton or another port in central Europe.

  6. My suggestion is 14 nights Celebrity Millennium, Indonesia & Malaysia Cruise (January 4 and 18)

    We did that cruise last year - see review at gemsofsoutheastasia.blogspot.dk

  7. We are flying in to Quito on 7/17, arriving around 10PM. Is the shuttle service to the hotel the price per person or per car? Do you have a ballpark figure of what the taxi fare should be? Do you know if they accept credit cards, dollars, or only local currency?


    Taxi is US$ 25 (cash) while a shuttle is US$ 50 (pre-paid)

    The yellow airport taxis are registered and safe.

  8. The most common credit card in Copenhagen is VISA, but you should have no problem with Master Card and American Express as well.

    Most places will add a 3% surcharge on foreign card transactions.

    ATMs/cash machines will accept those cards. Bring your PIN code.


    Rosenborg Castle and Canal tours both accept credit cards



    Rosenborg Castle is DKK 90,00 p.p.


    Canal Tours - my recommendation is Netto Bådene - both Nettp Bådene and DFDS does offer the same 1 hour guided tour

    Netto Bådene from HOLMENS CHURCH or Nyhavn is DKK 40,00 p.p.

    DFDS from Gammel Strand or Nyhavn is DKK 75,00 p.p.


    Public busses does not accept credit cards

    2 zones DKK 24,00 p.p.

    3 Zones DKK 36,00 p.p.


    depending on where your ship does dock Rosenborg and the Canal Tours are within walking distance.
