  1. Our cruis on Azmara finishes in Benoa Bali and we are getting of the night before as it is there over night. Will it be tendered for a smaller ship or docked if anyone knows. If it is tendered and we need to go to the airport at say 9pm how do you work that?

    The Azamara Quest will be docked in Benoa, Bali Monday, February 16, 2015.

  2. I have done the RCCL Norwegian Fjords - chosing RCCL, Celebrity or NCL depends on your preferences for cruise line and then the itinerary / ports of call - Geiranger, Flåm and Bergen are my recommendations.

     

    Being from Denmark, I'll suggest a cruise from Copenhagen - and also suggest late May or early June when there still is snow at the mountains.

     

    I did Ålesund, Geiranger, Flåm and Bergen from Copenhagen first week of June 2013. See the review of the cruise and watch the videos at my Norwegian Fjords Blog

  3. The 9:45 from Flåm will arrive into Myrdal 10.43

    Then there is a train from Myrdal 11:11 towards Voss/Bergen (arrival Voss

    12:05) - towards Oslo only few trains. Please note that this is current time - June time table not available yet.

    You can find train times at https://www.nsb.no/timetables/

     

    Myrdal 15:59 will arrive into Flåm at 16.55 - might be a bit tight, but doable.

    The trains is not 'sold out' from Myrdal to Flåm - only from Flåm, so not a problem getting seats at 14:43 from Myrdal to Flåm.

     

    You might be able to go to Voss - return trains are 13:14 or 14:40 - arrival Myrdal 13:55 / 15:30. - I like your contingency plan.

     

    An alternative is the train and being back 11.55 - just in time for a fjord cruise

  4. It does take approximately an hour - we did Kuala Lumpur on our own in January this year.

    We took the mono rail/metro from Bukit Bintang to China town and walked back to Bukit Bintang.

    Watch this short video from the tour

  5. The tenders service was running the entire night - like every hour. Return at 11pm should not be a problem. And morning should not be a problem either. X tours also start quite early.

    In addition to the ship tenders there were also local boats tendering.

    Here is my blog with pictures and videos from our cruise January 2013.

  6. We we did a cruise out of Shanghai we stayed at JW Marriott Hotel at Tomorrow Square - next to People's Square and close to Nanjing Road Pedestrian Street.

    Excellent hotel and excellent service.

  7. I have just been at Xpedition - excellent cruise. Do not know Ocean Spray except new and much smaller ship.

    Even with 96 passengers you feel like a family - and tours are all dividede into group of 16 with a local naturalist - very likely to me the same tours on both ships since those tours ashore are highly regulated.

    But I dont think you will be able to get an Xpedition cruise before fall next year - i did bokk almost two years in advance.

    I do have a review of our tour at http://traveltogalapagos.info

  8. We went on Millennium last january - visa for Infonesia was arranged by Millennium and charged to our on board account.

    Also in January 2014 you will be able to get your tourist visa on arrival to Indonesia.

  11. I have started to create a blog from our November 10 to 17, 2013 Celebrity Xpedition cruise to Galapagos

     

    The blog can be found at: http://www.traveltogalapagos.info/

    Please note that the blog by today is still not finished - need some proof reading (you are welcome with comments and corrections) - also more text, blog entries and pictures will be added soon.

     

    In addition some videos from the trip will soon be posted at:

    http://www.youtube.com/traveltogalapagos

     

    A 'sampler video' can be found here:

     

  12. (AM arrival will allow for 9:45 train - only 5 minutes from pier to train if docked - if tendered it might be different!

     

    If we leave Myrdal by 3:59, should we be able to return to the ship by 4:00pm or so (6pm departure).

     

    This is not fully understood:"If we leave Myrdal by 3:59, should we be able to return to the ship by 4:00pm or so (6pm departure)."

    But again - only short time is need to get back to ship.
