Not been before but a contact advised Sea port: 4 km from/to Bangkok seaport 500 m from/to boat taxi (Thewes pier) hope this is helpful others might be able to supply further information.

Sorry Bill but your contact has given you wrong steer. Laem Chabang is the cruise ship port & Legend is definitely docking there on this cruise......Regards Wilba.

Thanks Wilba, he was until 5 years ago Master of a merchant navy ship so I think I posed the question incorrectly you are right I checked my Cruise Cal website and the ship is there on 2nd/3rd February. We do our best, by the way Happy New Year.

Laemchabang port is a two & a half hour journey into Bangkok (112 miles from memory) & as this city is known for it's night life then an overnight hotel is worthy of consideration. There will be plenty of taxi's willing to take you as I think there is little on the way that requires a tour company/bus. A cheap 3 star hotel should only cost about £30 a night & if I had not done Bangkok before, I would certainly be looking at this kind of option. Hope this has been of some food for thought.........Wilba.

Hi Scott, going on same cruise in Feb- any idea what sort of clothing to pack for the cruise and have you had your visas sorted out? I am off to the Chinese visa office on 7/1/09 and i think i will need visa for Xiamen and Shanghai- is this correct? I have reaslised that there is more to than just going on the cruise!! I have my husband to thank for as he chose to go on this particular cruiseand we are first time cruisers. Pauline- Suffolk.

Hi Pauline. We are packing clothing for the warm weather and some others jumpers etc for when we arrive in Shanghai as I think it will only be in the late 50s temperature wise. We are off to the Chinese visa office on the 12th but it is all so confusing isn't it? You will love cruising, once you have been you will be hooked!! You are very adventurous to try the far East on your first cruise but it sounds great doesn't it - we can't wait.

Many Thanks Mrs Scott for your advice. Royal Carribean have changed our inbound flight itinerary so will definintely need to have warm clothing for Shanghai. I am from M'sia originally- have been to S'pore before but never been to the other countries. Looking forward to this cruise.

Hi Scott, We are om the same cruise, 4 of us, we are going by limo, sightseeing for the day, to pick us up at the port, take us to Bangkok, and return in the evening, about 10 hours, for a price of 5700 baht inc all port and toll fees. Have you found out the formal days yet, as they have only told us 3 formal days, but no dates. John.

What Jane failed to show/mention

By Kerry James

I have been watching this series of Cruising with Jane McDonald (Friday nights at 9pm on Channel 5), and thought that when she was on MSC and Viking she did show more of the ship to the watcher/cruiser which I did think was lacking in the first series.I was surprised MSC had them back on as in the first series she didnt really show of the MSC Divina but was pleased to see that she was showing the newest ship in the fleet – MSC Meraviglia (at the moment until the MSC Seaside and MSC Seav...

As you read this I will have started my own holiday – and yes you have guessed it I am off on a cruise…Firstly I will be spending 3 nights in the Mestre area of Venice to explore this beautiful city which I must admit to having never been to before (other than landing at the airport for a transfer to Trieste in April) I am looking forward to strolling around the beautiful streets, stopping for an ice-cream or a coffee in a lovely square and also to exploring the waterways of Veni...

Ryanair are a joke!

By Neil Holmes

Neil Holmes's blog

Well you have read the news. Ryanair are planning to cancel 40-50 flights a day…..yes A DAY because they have messed up their pilots holiday rota’s!!! I thought Michael O’Leary’s hair brained idea of ‘low cost standing room only on his flights’ was nonsense but I couldn’t believe my ears when I heard this news. Firstly are all their pilots taking holiday in Sept-Oct ? Is there a cheap deal we don’t know about and all the staff at Ryanair are...
