Istanbul Dock and Boarding Early
Azamara website directions for boarding Oct. 11 confuse me since two locations are listed on their website: Salapazari (Karakoy) and Sarayburnu Pier off Kennedy. Which?

Since my approved request listed several who "might" board, I wonder and hope to find out whether the charge applies to all approved or only those who actually...

I've had a long wait for a taxi at the pier! If you can pull your luggage to a street corner across the street, I understand the problem is lessened.

Lucky hotel bid
We bid $82 on Priceline for a hotel in London Westminster, 4 star and got the Jolly St Ermins for late September. Just what we wanted with a perfect location. Total came to less than $100. By going...
Really free?
My TA called Seabourn and learned that transfer to BOS from Gloucester would be $100 per person! Say it isn't so! The commuter train might be a better choice in that case.

Promenade on Symphony
We ALWAYS choose this cat.

While cruising, we have marked on the ship's plan the least obstructed and some, unobstructed, cabins and go to Travelocity ( I think) to see what is available, then...
Go for it!
On a January cruise on the Serenity, my husband and I shared this experience with our group and extra fill-ins. I can say the wines were superb and generously poured. Here is the menu:

Keep us posted!
When you return from your OAT barge trip, do tell us all about it. My husband and I are on a Burgundy trip this May and have the same questions you do and more.

Thanks for your info!
