Sim - Answered a Question by walters (24 Dec 07 12:49)

On our trip on Infinity to the Falkland Islands in December 2006 there was almost no availability for independent tours. Such a small population that all transport including private cars, 4 x 4's etc have been commandered by Celebrity in advance. Our Californian table companions took a mini bus which plied back and forwards and was an absolute nightmare trying to get a place on the way back. Remember many Mexican American, Argentinians, Chileans and other European nationalities who have no concept of queuing and would not even give any consideration to people in wheelchairs are on this ship in large family groups. It was a free for all. And no other way of getting back to Port Stanley. I would recommend taking the organised tour here or going on the web and trying to book a car in advance. Definitely do not take a chance on getting transport when you dock.

Thank you very much for this response, we have probably decided that as were are there for around 9 hours that we will walk where we need to go to see some of the penguins etc. On another note did you enjoy this cruise as this is the exact ship we are going on and have never cruised before at all? Thanks a lo.

Themed cruises all the way.

I had to smile this week when I read about Bonnie Tyler making a guest appearance on board ‘Oasis of the seas’ to help get passengers in the spirit to experience the Solar eclipse. Very clever Royal Caribbean, it’s almost as good as an episode of ‘Homes under the hammer’.Bonnie will be belting out her 80’s hit ‘Total eclipse of the heart’ alongside American rock dance band DNCE in the Aqua Theater about an hour before the eclipse next week. You ...

Southampton Port Parking I...

By Camilla Edwards

Camilla Edwards's blog

I always think arriving at the airport or port is really the start of the holiday but last time I cruised from Southampton it was a bit of a nightmare and very stressful. Traffic jams between Oxford and Newbury made us, and many other passengers, late to start with and on arriving at the cruise terminal the queues were horrendous to say the least. Sitting in a car for an hour and a half looking at Ventura is not the best start to anyone`s cruise. Fortunately we had booked Valet Parking so on...
