Guy - Answered a Question by Tim Eyre (13 Jan 09 09:59)

Morning Tim, Can answer two of those, Lisbon we had to take a shuttle bus into the centre it seemed to be a long way but I think that was because of the road system, Vigo was easy, strolled off the ship and followed the crowds. Liked Vigo, walked through an old area with lots of restaurants and then found a more modern shopping area, next to where we berthed there was a shopping complex which was OK. Have a good holiday, best wishes Carol.

Carol, thanks a lot. Is it correct to assume that the cruise line often put on the shuttle buses or is it the local scheduled service? Thanks again. Tim.

When you leave the terminal at Lisbon if you walk straight ahead for about 150 metres there is an underpass into the railway station, automated ticket ticket machines in English, 1.20 euro return into Cais do Sodre station (terminus) 6 min trip, trains every 10 min, from where it is an easy 10 min walk to where the shuttle buses drop you off at Praca de Comercio. Plenty of trains coming back, electronic destination boards, look for Alcantara station. Good underground system in Lisbon too. There are city tour buses leaving from the port as well.

Hi, thanks for this info. Would you have any information regarding local trains/bus to Fatima from Lisbon? Are there taxi's outside the port offering trips to Fatima?? Any info would be appreciated.

Haven't paid much attention to Fatima trips as I'm not religious I'm afraid. The Lisbon-guide website states that Fatima is 135km from Lisbon which is a fair old distance. It also says "The best way to go to Fatima from Lisbon is to take the bus from Sete Rios , the main bus station in Lisbon. The buses leave on hourly basis and the entire trip takes 1,5 hour. For more information on bus schedules please have a look at Rede Expressos" I suspect you would be pushing your luck to try and do this trip on your own and a taxi for 170 miles would be pretty expensive. Perhaps best to visit Lisbon Cathedral and leave the Fatima shrine for another time.

We were on P & O Arcadia and the ship provided a free shuttle bus that ran back and forth to the ship so it was easy. I didnt know about the train so of course that would be an option, but we saved the legs for walking around the city! Regards Carol.

Royal Caribbean. Something for...

By Dean Michaelides

Every single year its seems like more and more ships are being released. 3-6 star 300 passengers to 6000 passengers there are hundreds of cruises out there now. My question is can anyone beat Royal Caribbean and do they have a ship for every one?I recently had a training with a Royal Caribbean rep and she advised there aim would be for cruise customers never to look elsewhere when it comes to cruising. A bit like Dubai for Holidays. There idea it to have such a wide range within there fleet f...
