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.

My Dream Cruise

By Edward Griffiths

Make no mistake, my heart lies with the Ocean. The rolling waves, the fresh sea air and the gentle shudder as we slice through the water will always give me goosebumps, but this got me thinking – do I have a dream cruise? The answer is YES! Tonight I was browsing some options for a customer when I stumbled across a stunning itinerary on a truly iconic ship. Here is that itinerary:Southampton, United KingdomAt SeaAt SeaAt SeaAt SeaAt SeaAt SeaNew York, United StatesAt SeaAt Sea Christmas...

Celebrity Edge is on its Way

By Robin Clarke

Robin Clarke's blog

So the brand new Celebrity Edge has now gone on sale for her maiden voyage on the 16th of December starting her Caribbean voyages where she will be based in Fort Lauderdale. This ship is like no other at sea with so many fantastic new amenities on-board such as the new infinite balconies which even I was blown away by this. The balcony itself is now within the cabin and has a separator if you wish to use it to separate the balcony from the cabin. You then have a switch that you can push that ...
