We enjoyed adding on the garden tour to out tickets when we were there last August. I highly recommend doing so if you have an interest in gardens.

We have used U.S. cash for almost everything we've purchased in the islands. We have occasionally prebooked excursions independent of the cruise line with vendors where we have had to pay beforehand...

I don't think the OP's friend has a reasonable complaint. If I called a travel agency and talked with someone who admitted he was new to the job and did not know a lot, I would have thanked him and...

I got to go on a spring break senior trip to England and Spain that a Spanish teacher and history teacher organized. My mother was reluctant, because my brother had signed up four years earlier for a...

Since there are so many possible cruises, you should wait. I frequently kept spreadsheets of cruise prices for the ones that used to fit DH's school break schedule when he taught at a community...

Dublin Castle was just OK. We had a rainy day our first day in Dublin, so being inside wasn't a bad idea. But coming after our tours of Kensington Palace and Buckingham Palace, it wasn't that...

We stayed in Kensington and walked up for tickets. We had about a 15-minute wait. People who bought tickets ahead of time had a separate queue and got in ahead of us. I got us the earliest tickets...

If you're still working, you might be better off just going on the land tour and not the cruise portion. I can't imagine being off from work for so long. Before I retired, the longest trip we ever...

Last year, we enjoyed the garden tour at Buckingham Palace a lot. We also went to Kensington Palace in London. They'll still have the exhibit called "Diana: Her Fashion Story" going on through this...

We booked our flights to London for September through Princess's EZair. They were surprisingly affordable. We are taking a daytime flight, so I'm not concerned about being able to recline. I can live...

I tried to look up my CC loyalty level, but Celebrity's website kept giving me an error message when I clicked that I couldn't remember my user name and password. I guess that's one reason we haven't...

It was the prepay price at Park 'N Go. I can't find a similar increase now around the summer holidays, probably because there aren't as many cruise ship sailing in the summer months. And it's too...

Both times we've driven we've parked in the decks at the pier. Both times were holiday sailings--and Park-n-Go had raised its rates correspondingly to where it was just a couple of dollars a day more...

Glasgow was easy with the hop-on/hop-off bus. We took the train from Greenock. You can buy a package that includes the train ticket and HoHo bus.

We enjoyed our tour from Invergordon to Urquhart...

Notting Hill is not convenient walking distance to any of those, but being close to a Tube station makes that OK. Staying there would put you less than a mile to Kensington Palace and less than two...

We do. But when we went, they were letting everyone in the dining room go on the next tender.

Our HoHo bus went in the order you listed, so plan on getting earliest ticket possible for Trinity College to see the Book of Kells. Some folks report an hour for their visit, but two would be better...

We were on the Caribbean Princess last year. It carries around 400 fewer passengers that the Royal Princess, which is one of the Princess ships doing the British isles this summer. I booked our...

Saint Patrick's Cathedral would be the obvious choice. Attending Mass in a cathedral is special.

If taking a Princess cruise tour, I suggest making sure you have two nights near Denali National Park. And skip the Natural History Tour that Princess includes for either the Tundra Wilderness Tour...

Recently, we've been taking at least two and up to four bottles for a week-long cruise. The first two bottles are free to drink in our cabin and then there's a $15 corkage fee for additional ones on...

We bought the combo ticket last summer at the station. It was very convenient. When we got on the HoHo bus, we showed the driver our train tickets and he gave us new HoHo tickets. We visited the...

We enjoyed the HoHo bus in Dublin on our second day. Princess provided a free shuttle bus to Merrion Square. We walked from there to Dublin Castle, by St. Patrick's Cathedral, and to the National...

From reports, the people who have lived on ships enjoyed it. They can have friends come on board for a cruise or two. They can meet new people every cruise. Plus the staff dotes on them. I'm fine...
