Holland America has Newport on its itinerary for 2014 but Princess, Celebrity and Royal Caribbean have all seemed to drop Newport next year. Anybody have any information concerning the change?

Valparaiso Taxis
After debarking in Valparaiso is it difficult to hire a taxi for transport to a Valparaiso or Vina del Mar hotel?

We have used Extreme Elegance twice and were very pleased with their service. We are returning to Galveston for a cruise in May and will use them again.

billie5, a pattern of activity does exhibit intent. I will grant you that "almost every billing" is a bit of hyperbole. However, a few hundred double billings is something more than "lousy...

cruiseco, the difference between the situation you described and the eCruiseStore situation is the intent to defraud. The intent to defraud may not have been able to be shown in your situation but...

Those who have been scammed by eCruiseStore should check the activity on the credit card they used with eCruiseStore. I like many others paid for my cruise in full in May. In June eCruiseStore...

The first thing to know is that you will sit on the opposite side of the train returning from the side you sit on going. If you go as a couple that is fine. If you go as a single you get paired up...

Gail, it really isn't an 18 hour day. It is more like a 16 hour day but it is sedentary. From 3:00 a.m. to 4:00 a.m. the Lido is open if you need food or coffee. At 4:00 the show lounge opens for...

I was on the cruise with rimau and took 6 HAL excursions. My overall impression was disappointment. There was nothing special about the excursions and they were grossly overpriced.

We were in Copenhagen in September and had no problem using our credit card in the stores, restaurants, and in our hotel. We stayed in a small boutique hotel. It may not be accepted everywhere you...

We recently stayed at the Hotel Christian IV which we found to be a perfectly adequate hotel for our three day pre-cruise stay. It was not fancy but clean and functional with a great breakfast room....

We have just returned from our cruise which started with a three day visit to Copenhagen. Saying “thank you” does not begin to express our gratitude to Danish Viking and CruisinEurope for all of the...

Buy a transportation pass which allows you to use the buses and the water ferries as much as you want. Much safer than the scooters and much cheaper (and less aggravating) than the taxis. You can...

I totally agree with the suggestion as to the Frog and Onion. Each time I visit the island I head over there for a Dark and Stormy. They do have a beer tasting special of about four of their...

Unless you are in a suite the butler is the room steward and nothing more. During our Quest cruise in January (which we thought was fabulous) our butler was horrible. Most of our room stewards...

Try flights-to-europe.com. We got a great one way fare on that site. It was immediately posted on the Delta site.

Also note that the weight limit is 50 lbs. per bag on Southwest unlike the 60 lbs. on many legacy carriers. There are signs everywhere and they seem to enforce the limit.
