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.

Sailing from the UK, theres...

By Trevor Smith

I am finding that a lot of my new customers are giving cruise a taste because of the hassles flying, big queues, over the top security, scan this, scan that and then hanging around for 2 hours for your flight, and that’s if it is not delayed. Because of this, the increase in people wanting to sail from the UK has risen. Very much a stress free start to your holiday, no worries over how much luggage you can take, all you need to do is get to the port.But did you know that it is not just ...

Why I never pre pay my gratuities

By Chris Halford

Chris Halford's blog

Almost every day I have conversations with customers around gratuities and if you are a first-time cruiser it can be confusing, and you may not be sure what the best etiquette is.Cruise lines would prefer I tell you to pre-pay your tips because its better value, or because it helps you budget for your trip, but personally I would rather be upfront and honest. Tipping, for me, is a personal thing and each person has their own ideas about what is the right thing to do. I used to always be an ad...

Is Smaller Better?

By Lesley Millward

Lesley Millward's blog

There are so many of the larger ships out there, and they do seem to be getting bigger and bigger don’t they! My lovely client Mr S asked me recently to give him a list of all the smaller ships that he could choose, because he isn’t a fan of the bigger ones. Point taken Mr S. I actually prefer smaller ships too.Of course, it is interesting to note what actually defines a smaller ship? To some people it would be about 2000 people, to others about 300. A smaller ship may not hav...
