SOUTH AMERICA -Radiance of the Seas, transfer HELP at Port


Marie Hopkins

Recommended Posts

HELP!!! I am going on RCL Radiance of the Seas ship with 3 other friends. The final port is Santos which is about 70 km from Sao Paulo city. The cruise line ONLY offers transfers to airport. We are staying an extra day in city. I understand that although taxis are plentiful thay are not all honest. We would like to book transfers with a reputable company and also book a city tour but are having NO luck. Any suggestions? We leave the states on 28FEB. :confused:

Howdy Marie Hopkins! 50.gif Welcome to Cruise Critic!! 04.gif

 

Thank you for your post! However, you have posted on the Cruise Blogs & Websites Forum where members share the site address for their personal cruise-related travelogue blogs or websites. This is not the correct forum for your post since it is off-topic here. 05.gif

 

Read the Sticky thread titled What is a ROLL CALL and how do I find mine? at http://boards.cruisecritic.com/showthread.php?t=44773. The thread will tell you about the Cruise Critic Roll Call Forums. They are the place for you to get to know the other Cruise Critic members sailing with you before the cruise.

 

For information about your ports of call click here http://boards.cruisecritic.com/forumdisplay.php?s=&daysprune=&f=5 for our list of the Ports of Call Forums. In your case, you will want to research the Ports of Call - South America Forum at http://boards.cruisecritic.com/forumdisplay.php?f=76. That's where you can research for tours, excursions, transportation etc. Your fellow Cruise Critic members post their reviews/recommendations there. Also, your fellow Roll Call members may have information posted in your Roll Call thread. In fact, your Roll Call thread is the ONLY place on Cruise Critic where members can post a personal ad about sharing tours, excursions, transportation etc. with each other. Your Roll Call thread is a "captive audience" since you are all sailing together!

 

If you are new to cruising, click here http://boards.cruisecritic.com/forumdisplay.php?f=97 to research our First Time Cruisers Forum. Click here http://boards.cruisecritic.com/forumdisplay.php?f=114 to research our Ask a Cruise Question Forum. To research for information from your fellow Cruise Critic members that have sailed your line, ship or itinerary before, click here http://boards.cruisecritic.com/forumdisplay.php?f=83 for our Royal Caribbean International Forum.

 

If your cruise is 7 days or longer, don't forget to register for the "Meet & Mingle" Party hosted by RCI during your cruise for you and the other Cruise Critic members sailing with you. After getting to know each other on your Roll Call thread prior to your cruise, this will be a time and place with refreshments where you will get to meet face-to-face on the ship. Check out the following links for more information and to register:

 

- Meet & Mingle Info and RCCL Meet & Mingle FAQ

- Register to attend a Meet & Mingle Party

- Confirmed Meet & Mingle Party List

 

Please feel free to use the Search this Forum feature on all Cruise Critic message board forums with your key word or words. It will help narrow down the threads you will want to read during your research. Also, you can see if your inquiry has been asked and answered before. And it probably has... many, many times! 05.gif

 

Click the Search this Forum feature to open the drop down. Type in your key word or words then click the little Go button. I suggest you do not try a search with too many or too common of key words at one time. This will sometimes overwhelm the search feature with too many threads to scan and it will time out. From time to time, you may receive an error message that says "Search function is down". PLEASE TRY AGAIN in a few moments. This message will often pop up during the busiest times of the day.

 

The following information may be helpful too:

 

Be sure to read our FAQ, especially the Getting Started section. You will see how a new topic should be consistent with the specific forum you choose. It also gives a brief summary of the topics covered in some of the forum sections. Other important FAQ sections are Subscriptions (Receiving e-mail notification of replies to posts and threads you specify) and User Maintenance.

 

Click here http://boards.cruisecritic.com/index.php for the list of all Cruise Critic message board forums and be sure to read all Announcement and Sticky threads at the top of the various forums for very important information or instructions.

 

In the Guidelines we all agreed to follow when registering for our free membership, please note the Please Browse BEFORE You Post section since many of your questions may have been asked and answered before as mentioned above.

 

Be sure you are on the correct forum. After you have browsed/researched for your topic and possibly not found an answer, word your new inquiry title so the other members scrolling through the thread titles will know exactly the information you seek. This will help the members as they scroll through the thread titles so they can reply to you. It is best to limit each inquiry to only one topic or concerning one cruise line, port of call, etc. You will get more replies that way. Be sure to mention your cruise line, ship & sail date in your inquiry if it will help the members with their answers to you.

 

If you wonder what some of the icons/symbols/arrows on Cruise Critic mean, just use your mouse to slowly hover your cursor over the item and most often a tool-tip will appear with the name or action.

 

I sincerely hope this information will be helpful and glad to have you aboard Cruise Critic!
