  1. Our September sailing date is approaching fast and I have a question for anyone familiar with Reykjavik. We will be arriving early morning at KEF airport and once through customs etc. will be heading directly to the Skarfabakki Cruise Port, arriving possibly 8 or 8.30 am. Boarding starts at 1.00 pm. Would anyone know if the cruise terminal building will be open early morning for people coming in from an overnight flight? We would be happy to sit inside, but don't fancy the idea of standing outside for a while waiting for the doors to open. Thanks for any information you can give.
  2. Oh my, what great responses to what I thought was a simple question..... I've really learned a lot reading all these posts. Thank you one and all.
  3. We are newbies on Oceania (Riviera) and I see posts regarding making reservations in the specialty restaurants. Am I correct in assuming one doesn't need to make reservations for the main dining room, but for the specialty restaurants (those with no extra charges) it's a good idea or even necessary to make reservations? Many thanks in advance for your advice.
  4. Thanks for your response. I must admit it's very difficult to get any idea of the cabin size from the deck plans of cabins. You can only guess at it.....
  5. I know this is a very new ship but has anyone stayed in cabin 6169 or has any information on it? In the HAL website it looks to be a little larger (longer room) with an angled balcony. Thanks in advance for any info.
  6. Thanks everyone for your comments. I think I'll have to delve a bit deeper to check out your suggestions. We will probably be checking into the hotel mid afternoon and won't need to sightsee etc. Just need a clean bed for the night and somewhere to grab something for supper. We were planning on flying Porter Airlines from Toronto Island but may have to re-think that too if the tolls are added in from EWR. It can get quite pricey I guess. Again thanks for all your help, it's really appreciated.
  7. We will be flying into EWR the day prior to our QM2 trip next May. First question.... is Carmel, Arecibo or Dial 7 the best way to get to a hotel in Brooklyn from EWR airport? I've booked The Look Hotel - Red Hook on Seabring St. Is this in a decent area? I know it's a short cab ride to the Red Hook terminal, and it's one of the more reasonably priced. The other option is the Insignia Hotel on 61st St. A little further away, the hotel tells me approx. 30 minute drive to the cruise terminal. I would really appreciate any input from those who know the Brooklyn area. Many thanks in advance.
  8. Wow, thanks Bob++ and sddsddean for such a quick response. Needless to say I had no idea of the location for ship and Matthew Museum. It's certainly something to think about. However, my husband is really eager to see the Matthew Museum as he's from Newfoundland and realized the significance of his heritage. We'll certainly endeavour to get there somehow. Thank yo both again.
  9. We will be stopping into Bristol in May on our cruise and wonder if the Matthew Museum is close to the ship's tender point or the tie up port itself. Hopefully, someone may have done this already. Would really appreciate any info. Many thanks.
