  1. We want to walk the Rafael Melgar Avenue from cruise ship towards the airport where I understand there are some WWII planes on display in front of their Air Base. IS IT SAFE? Also thought about using taxi/uber to go there and walk back.
  2. Different ships really do vary on what the door prizes will be. Sometimes there's a big spread of drinks and eats and other times just the basic coffee, juice and water with pastries. The Cruise Director can be either entertaining...or not so much.
  3. Dh and I each won this mouse … and still use them!
  4. Where can I find release dates for upcoming 2020 cruises? Specifically Transatlantics and N. Europe. Looking for destinations in Iceland, Scotland, Belgium; not the most common places, many of which we have already been to.
  5. My first time to Helsinki, coming on Brilliance of the Seas on 9 May. I read that on arrival in Terminal 1 (altho I do not know which terminal we will be at) I can buy single tram tickets. I want to get tix to take tram #7 to the Senaatintori (Senate Sq) and walk over to Kauppatori (Market Sq). I want to know if it's possible to buy roundtrip single tix or 2 tix (one for each way) at the same time for each person? I know there is a day pass for €9 pp but we are only going out and coming back - single tix are €2.50 pp. That would be only €5 pp. We are spending the day at Suomenlinna, using the water bus because I like their route better than the city ferry route.
  6. Coming to Tallinn on a Sunday May 6th Our ship arrives at 0930. Can't find which dock on the port of Tallinn website. All aboard will be 5:30 pm. I'm interested in seeing the KGB Prison Cells and also the KGB Museum. I found where the Prison Cells is in the Old Town. But the website for the KGB Museum, which is in the Viru Hotel, doesn't have a lot of info. It says to make a reservation - it's €11 pp. I'm not sure which of the 2 tour times we will make it there. 11:30 or 2:30 pm. On Trip advisor some reviews say you can make reservation same day by going to the hotel earlier in the day. How to get there? Would it be better to walk from the ship to the Viru Hotel; or take a bus? If bus which one? How much is the fare? I'm thinking to go to Viru Hotel KGB Museum first then walk over to the old Town where we can explore and also visit the KGB Prison Cells. Susan
  7. At Den Gamle By - does one still pay the admission just to walk around without going into the houses, museums? Where is the entrance? I printed the map on their website but it doesn't identify places. I hope they have a detailed map/brochure at the entrance.
  8. Found this on the website https://www.toppenafdanmark.com/ln-int/toppenafdanmark/transportation-find-your-way-skagen-frederikshavn-saeby Citybus in Skagen Line 1 will take you around all the sights of Skagen – from Grenen to Gl. Skagen and The Sandburied Church, as well as areas in Skagen town. Use a travel card, Text or cash ticket. You can also purchase a day ticket on the bus or at Skagen Tourist Office – then you can get on and off the bus whenever you like. The route is made up of three loops starting from Skagen Station. The service runs four times a day on each loop and there are more services during the summer period. Timetable for the Bus in Skagen: 01.11.17- 30.06.18 and 01.07.18-11.08.18
  9. What does the sign marking a bus stop at Tinghusvej/Sankt Laurentii vej look like?
  10. I found some info on the Skagen port website here that indicates there is a shuttle provided but it doesn't say to where in town. I'm assuming it the bus stop you mentioned. I found that the bus is 8 KR for seniors - can we pay the driver for a roundtrip, or separately each way? Or do we need to get a bus ticket somewhere else? I know the Sandormen is 30 KR roundtrip. We'll be in Skagen May 3rd. We are planning to shuttle into town and find the bus stop for Bus #1 and take it to Grenen. There we will get on the Sandormen vehicle that goes out to the tip where the two seas meet. Come back on the Sandormen, go visit the Bunker Museum across the parking lot there in Grenen, then get the Bus#1 back to Skagen. From the it depends on the time left if we go shopping before returning to the ship.
  11. Is it far to walk from the pier #9 where we will dock, to the bus station to catch Bus #1 to Grenen; or is there a shuttle? Is the walk to Grenen paved?
  12. Now that I have access to my eDocs for my upcoming May 1st cruise I find a page stating there will be someone to meet us from 0900 am outside the Customs Hall in Amsterdam airport. Transfers will operate between 0900 and 2:30 pm. Approx 30 min ride.
  13. We too will be there, at Langelinie C190, on a one-day stop on Sunday May 13th from 0930-1830. Are shops, restaurants and tourist attractions open on Sundays? Does the bus #26 run on Sundays? Was thinking about the Kastellet...is this an open area for walking around? Open on Sunday? So glad you are here ! Susan
  14. This info must be old....as of Aug 2017 they changed their tram routes and we now ill need to take # 7 to Senaatintori (Senate Squ) which is the nearest stop to Market Square. See this link
