  1. Thanks for all your replies. We are staying at H10 Casa Mimosa and the receptionist there quoted Euros 70 plus 10% VAT to organise a taxi and never having been to Barcelona before, thought someone would point me in the right direction for a cheaper option.
  2. Thanks for your reply but with a flight back to the UK, I think I would want a reservation to be on the safe side.
  3. Could anyone recommend a reliable taxi firm for a transfer from our Barcelona hotel to the airport? The hotel has quoted some silly price to organise this for us. Thanks as always for your help.
  4. Thanks again to everyone who has replied to this topic. I would have preferred to do this itinerary around April, but HAL isn't sailing that month. I think the experience of being in the Far East for the first time will far outweigh the vagaries of the weather - well, that's what I'm hoping for at least!!
  5. Thanks to everyone for their comments. You can never rely on the weather anywhere in the world these days. We were on a Caribbean cruise including New Orleans for Mardi Gras this year where it was 4 degrees! To add insult to injury, the previous Tuesday it had been 17 degrees. We just weren't prepared for it clothes-wise and I ended up wearing about 6 layers of my Caribbean wardrobe at once!!
  6. It's Noordam's itinerary on 17 January 2021(!!), so yes, we do have ports in Vietnam. As it will be winter in UK when we leave, we will definitely have our jackets with us so we'll be prepared. I don't want to wish the time away, but I'm really looking forward to it. Thanks for your advice.
  7. Ah ..... Well, the cruise is booked now, so we'll just have to go with the flow. Thanks for your advice.
  8. Thank you! You're making it easier to decide on this cruise.
  9. Thank you so much for a very detailed reply. This is just the sort of info I was hoping to receive. It makes it a lot easier to plan if you get feedback from someone who has done the cruise, so thanks ago.
  10. We've been looking at this itinerary, but is this the right time of the year to cruise weather-wise? I know there's no guarantee of good weather anywhere in the world these days, but would appreciate any advice as to whether it could be too wet for sightseeing. We're not worried about lower temperatures as long as it could potentially be dry. Thanks for your help.
  11. We are looking at this cruise and wonder whether it sails at the right time of the year weather-wise. Apparently, it could be foggy and damp in Singapore, it is the wettest month in Koh Samui and it will only be around 14 degrees in Hong Kong. I know you can't rely on the weather these days in any part of the world, so would appreciate your advice. We're not worried so much about it being cool, but whether it could be too wet to sightsee. Thanks for your help.
  12. Does Celebrity usually run any excursions after disembarkation at Boston or if not, could anyone recommend a tour operator who might pick up at the port or locally, please? The flights back to the UK are out of range at the moment, but usually depart around 1915 hours, so don't really fancy hanging about at the airport for hours. Thanks for your invaluable help.
  13. Which berth number does Connie usually use in Venice, please? Thanks for your help.
  14. Thanks so much for all that good advice. I've noticed that on the day we arrive in Barcelona, there will be 4 other cruise ships in port as well. I will definitely check with our hotel if we can store our luggage in the event we arrive early.
