fletcher locke - Answered a Question by Carey (25 Oct 08 14:33)

Hi My husband and I did a far east cruise last winter 2007 on the Oceania, we visited vietnam and we go our own visas for this trip, but I do believe that this particular cruise company did a group visa and they charged your cabin. What countires are you visiting? We did take some american dollors, creidt card and sterling. We did a 15 day extension ins Hua Hin Thailand and 5 nights in Bangkok and we just changed sterling into thai barts. The dollor is not good at the moment so I would hold off buying any. Linda and Andre Fletcher Locke .

Neil & Ida Down - Answered a Question by Carey (25 Oct 08 18:31)

I have been racking my brains to remember the taxi prices but can't, All I can remember was that it was not extortionate. Santa Cruz de Tenerife is not a great port and is often wet, believe it or not. Being at the north-western end of the island it means that most of the popular places are quite a distance. The mountainous top corner of the island is worth a tour and there are a couple of beaches there and the other place worth visiting is Puerto de la Cruz with a rocky beach, pool with fountains and an interesting botanical garden. Mount Teide is also interesting but often covered in cloud and very cold at the peak. Not the answer you asked for but I hope it is of some help. .....Neil.

They wanted to charge me 70 euros from the dock side to Las americas,if you go into the town on the shuttle bus the charges reduced to 45 and the journey took approx 45 minutes. If you go to the bus station (close by) the cost is about 15 euros each way and takes about an hour. I`ve done both and its cheaper by bus. M.Curtis. Southampton.

Use the internet via google to get contact with FRED OLSEN or P and O. They are the main sailers from UK in the midwinter and will give you their programmes for yoyages to Canary Islands. these Islands are the nearest you will get to gauranteed warmth. We can also fly to Barcelona or Genoa to get voyages to the Canarys on Costa NCL and Royal Carib vessels. Again, ask google to find their sites and programmes. Then--most important use google to find the best offers. Usually better than the companys. hope all this helps.

Port Or Starboard? Whats t...

By Gina Rowan

I wish I had a pound for every time I have been asked this question. I could have sailed around the world in Luxury! Aah yes! but would I choose Port or Starboard for my cabin? Or left side versus the right side of the ship?I suppose it depends on where you’re headed. I know that quite a few seasoned cruisers swear by the Starboard side. Although it really depends on what type of cruise you are on.For instance, if you are sailing in one direction, North or West generally people pr...

A Majestic Atrium the heart of the ship.

By DJ Weatherall

DJ Weatherall's blog

Majestic and her stunning atrium is the heart of the shipThe Plaza on Majestic is on Deck 5 – from here you can access 3 decks either by marble staircase or Panoramic Lifts – it is without doubt the heart of the ship. There are restaurants and bars, cafe’s and lounges, speciality tea and coffee takeaway or sit down areas and the all important shops.I know some lines prefer to have a royal promenade that runs along the centre of the ship – but Majestic just like Royal a...

MSC Loyalty Match scheme a hit!!

By Brad Smith

Brad Smith's blog

MSC have launched a new incentive to attract new customers and reward existing clients with an offer of matching customers loyalty level with competitors. Rather that just stop at matching cruise line loyalty levels, they have gone as far as matching loyalty levels for hotel chains and tour operators too.Clever move in my opinion, as I have many customers that specifically stick to a specific company as their loyalty levels are at the top level, so they love the perks they receive from their ...
