  1. hallasm, Thank you very much for the response. Another quick question. I know we can't predict the weather, but would you prefer the morning over the afternoon? Is it typically foggy in the morning . I will be there at the beginning of October. Thanks Again
  2. On the day we are in port, we only have enough time to do either the fjordcruise or a bus excursion to the lookout due to their timetables. Would we see mainly the same things on the sail in and out as the fjord cruise? Are there any smaller tour companies that do a fjord cruise besides the RIB boats and the one large tour boat? Thanks
  3. I was wondering if the Flam train ride and the Panorama Bus ride were both basically the same route and if I would see the same sites, or if they were completely different routes. Would you recommend one over the other ? Thanks
  4. Would doing the train ride in the morning and the bus to Stegastein in the afternoon be very similar as far as the scenery? Perhaps one of these and a boat cruise in the fjord would be a better choice? Are the train station and the tourist information booth close to the cruise port? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks
  5. I was wondering if we are able to bring any soft drinks on board on embarkation. I was also wondering on the Serenade of the Seas if you are able to do your own laundry. Some ships have self serve laundry facilities. Thanks in Advance Briam
  6. Thanks for all good information. I guess we will wait to see how fast the debarc goes before deciding if we still have enough time to make it to Rome. If not we will stay in the port area or look for something closer. Brian
  7. I am doing a back to back cruise on the NCL Spirit and would like to go into Rome on a debarc/embark day. We arrive at 6am and depart at 5pm. Would it be feasible to catch a train by around 8am ? Usually it is chaotic on debarc morning. We wouldn't have any luggage, but would we need a new key card to get back onto ship. Is it possible to get a new key card before the morning of debarcation? What time would be a safe time to head back from Rome? Thanks for any help
  8. I have an excursion to Caminito del Rey booked with Marbella Escapes, but am skeptical as to whether it will take place. Is there public transportation that would get me there. I am in Malaga on a Saturday which seems to make things a bit harder. I have found tour companies that would get me there, but they only operate on weekdays. Thanks for all the info.
  9. Thanks for the info. Guess I will start checking my planner weekly. Hopefully there will be a good sale before the sailing date. Will be sure to check around Black Friday as well. Brian
  10. Thanks for the responses. Does RCI only advertise their beverage sale on the trip planner? Brian
  11. Thanks Bob Do you have an idea about how long before the sailing date should I see the prices? Nothing so far, but our cruise is not till beginning of March 2019. Brian
  12. Hi I have read previous posts concerning the price of the beverage packages and sale prices. Where do they show them? If I go to my cruise planner, I am told it is too early to book ( cruise is next March) I can see a description of the package on the website with all the brands of liquor, but no prices. Do they usually advertise on their website when there is a sale? For some reason I am also unable to log on to their website. Brian
