Seager - Answered a Question by Burton (09 Jan 10 12:22)

Hi, My husand and I are doing this holiday at the end of Feb 2010. We have 4 nights in Las Vegas and then fly to LAX and transfer to Sapphire Princess for 7 night Mexican Riviera Cruise. The agent we booked with offered us a transfer from LAX to ship and after cruise transfer back to LAX for £70 both ways for 2 adults. I took up this offer as I have not done this before! Hope this helps and have a great trip - I can't wait!!

Hi! I did similar a few years ago independently, Vegas & the same cruise but different line, Carnival. We were considering a taxi on arrival at LAX but a Carnival Rep saw our bag tags & asked if we wanted to take the transfer coach. We agreed on the basis that some paperwork formalities were completed on the coach & meant we could dodge one of the queues on arrival at the docks, although it would have been cheaper by cab. The ports in my opinion have little to offer, like some of the Med ports, wander round for an hour, sit at a bar for an hour & get back on board. Nice but nothing to get excited about. Others may offer different advice on the ports, but I admit to being a bit of a Philistine when it comes to cultural expeditions! If you've not done Vegas before you'll probably wish you had longer as there's a lot to do & see......A great holiday all round though........Wilba.

After recently returning form a 6 day adventure to the Fjords on Fred Olsen Balmoral it is easy to see why people have such affectionate things to say about them. Many of my colleagues feel the same way regarding Fred Olsen. It is just the feel of the ship when you embark it just feels like you are back home. Maybe this has something to do with the smaller ships so much more personal and so much more warmth than the larger ships.I sailed from Newcastle which was fab for me living in Leeds , o...

In just over two weeks time we will be going on our first family holiday abroad!. We have had many lovely holidays in the UK. Cornwall, Devon and the lake district being some of our favs. These holidays have always involved a very long drive with a car packed full of stuff! and then when we finally arrival there is normally food shopping to do, meals to be cooked and cleaning to be done. This year we all felt we needed a “proper holiday” so after many many hours of research we are...
