On our cruise which went all around South America we found the port cities on the west coast to be lacking as destinations in themselves. These are places where you have to take a tour if you want...

Unfortunately they don't anymore unless you request them (so they do have them- the OP can ask the steward). This was a shock to me on our recent Q.V. south america cruise.

My notes from our recent visit there on the QV say there was a shuttle to the Mall de Pacifico run by the port. We took a tour so we didn't use it. I think it was a fairly short ride for those who...

In my experience (5 transatlantics from Brooklyn), things really die down for arrivals by 2:30 (14:30).

I would not want to cut it to close in case of traffic. I wouldn't want my dogs to pick...

Just to give you the 3rd perspective...we took a ship's tour to the park. We really enjoyed it since we got the history and some interesting views. The park roads were largely dirt and windy but the...

Has anyone ever shipped their luggage in between ports? I'm looking at a cruise ending in Rome, then we intend to travel around Europe and come home from Southampton. I would need to ship at least...

Yes of course, my bad. I was focused on the ship ....not the city. I'll read more carefully in the future.

What port are you talking about? If it's Fort Lauderdale for example the airport is very close and HAL did a great job getting us off the ship and on our way .

We've done it twice there and the...

Good point that didn't even jump out at me. What a tremendous cost savings.

We were just on the QV and used the specialty restaurant, table's for two were the norm. Nothing to worry about there.

I hope the thought there may be cliques on the ship doesn't stop you from doing a trip. It's an amazing experience.

You can always change tables if the company doesn't suit you and do it as many...

Obstructed Views on website?
I could have sworn that at one time you could go on the ask cunard site and see pictures that were taken of the view outside obstructed view cabins. Now, I can't find it.

Does anyone have a link...

Good point. I see the Amsterdam already has a cruise scheduled for 5/12/2020 so that would seem to eliminate choice #4.

Choices 2 and 3 would give you a 14 day gap while #1 gives you a 12 day...

It took a while for us to notice the change to the Chart Room. I think the whole area is very nice and won't disappoint old fans of the venue. They added the Britannia Club restaurant and that was...
