“LIVE FROM” 2019 Oceania Insignia World Cruise, Jan. 11-July 11

Recommended Posts

cbb:  Regarding Kobe—I just pulled out some of the cruise info and the port was “Kobe Port Terminal.”  If that’s the port in 2020, then you just go out the terminal door and turn right.  The metro you need to get to Sannomiya Station (for the rapid express train to Kyoto) is about 100 feet ahead on the same level.  From port terminal door to Kyoto station was an hour.  We got back at 4 pm, in time for Baristas and trivia.

 

At the Kyoto station, there is a large information office where we bought our day pass and got info on how best to maximize our time.

 

In 2018, on the Beijing to Sydney cruise, I had a full day tour of Kyoto arranged for 8 with a Tours by Locals guide.  He lives in Kyoto and spent time living/working in the United States before he retired.  He took us to his favorite neighborhood restaurant for lunch.  We did the tori gates, among other highlights, but not the bamboo area.  I have done it on previous visits and it’s a very nice sight to see.

I didn't remember a shuttle in Hiroshima...

 

Further correction...per the Currents, there WILL be a shuttle, courtesy of Hiroshima City, taking passengers from the pier to the Peace Memorial Park tomorrow. 

 

It's Kagoshima that won't have a shuttle because we dock right in town.

Thanks...I spent plenty of time there on my last visit here, back in 1998.   You know...when I went around the world in 4 days, not 180...😄

Hi all, if anyone is interested in looking at my photographs from this ATW cruise, look at my 

FB page Assaf Shilo & my profile photo is of me on a Harley with angel wings. In future I will not be posting photos on this board.

Looks like Assaf is posting publicly on FB, so no account needed to see his photos.

We saw it go by the Imperial Palace.  Not too many brave souls onboard because it was in the low 50’s with a very cold wind blowing (like riding a convertible in snow country).

senior citizen-

thanks for the response.  We'll be there in June and I've already included the routes and maps on my dump document in case we want to do that one of our days there.   Sometimes it is a great way to see a place.

Apr.3.2019. Sorry to hear that due to poaching, Komodo Island National Park will close for one year with hopes of increasing from the current population from 5000.2C71AD95-12C3-4365-9E90-507D3C6589DF.thumb.jpeg.4c7ff706407d2cf5a0bbbd6fbfd7402a.jpeg

Your world, your way.  Thank you for your comments.  Could not agree more.  Photos provide a glimpse, a tiny aperture into the experience that awaits.  Surprise yourself.  Capture your personal memories and share your passion; pilot boats, food, culture, scenery or in the moment.  If you are continuing around the world on Insignia, please post your photos.  As pop idols Chad and Jeremy said “but that was yesterday, and yesterday’s gone”

See_More out (until Regatta in August)
