  1. No lyft in Amsterdam. However a friend just told met there is Uber XL, that seems to have cars up to 6 persons.
  2. I doubt if this is possible. There arenot that many cars in The Netherlands that can hold 6 adult passengers plus the driver. Also the distance is about 40 kilometer which might make it rather expensive. Are you aware of the special busconnection to Keukenhof? https://keukenhof.nl/en/how-to-get-there/your-journey-with-public-transport/
  3. Indeed. 80% of the tickets come online 2 months prior your day of visit, on the day itself only 20% of tickets can be booked. Check their website: https://www.annefrank.org/en/museum/tickets/ Be aware you have to go up a steep stairs.
  4. From the HAL website: Wine and champagne bottles (no larger than 750ml) purchased in ports of call are welcome to be brought onboard subject to a US$18.00 (subject to change) corkage fee each, irrespective of where they are intended to be consumed. Alternatively guests can choose to have these bottles stored and returned on the last evening of the voyage at no charge.
  5. I guess about 100 Pesos, it is a rather short drive. Also you can take the bus marked aeropuerto from across the terminal more or less in front of Walmart. Cost will be 10 Pesos.
  6. Be aware they donot dive from as high as in Acapulco.
  7. It shows the Jewel and also the Brilliance on that day. Nothing yet for the rivercruises. It simply is too far out. Where ever the rivership will dock it cannot be extreme far away. Very unlikely you will need a hotel.
  8. Indeed, but they arenot allowed to pick you up for the return.
  9. Yes they will. But Easter in general is extreme busy. Not just tourists but many mexicans on vacation. Beaches are packed.
  10. Yes absolutely safe. Be aware in most buses you need to pay in Pesos. 10 Pesos per ride. Get off near Hotel Rosita at the beginning of Malecon or any stop there after. Donot take the bus with Tunel sign. Sometimes you need to transfer to another bus near the stadium. Just show your ticket for the (free) connecting bus. On the way back take a bus with sign Sams, aeropuerto or Marina. Be aware there are 2 walmarts in Vallarta, so let that sign not confuse you. In cabs always make your price before entering. Ride back should be around Pesos 100/120.
  11. What day will that be? You probably can check the locations on the website of the cruiseterminal Amsterdam. https://www.ptamsterdam.com/cruise-calender/# In general Jewel will dock there, but location of riverships is often not that far away. However riverships have more docks in Amsterdam.
  12. For Puerto Vallarta check Los Veranos: https://canopytours-vallarta.com/ or Canopy River: https://canopyriver.com/ both great companies.
  13. Get in contact with the guy that now does Dagtoertaxi. He might be a bit more expensive then Marius, but is a good driver. http://dagtoertaxi.nl/ Or get one of the frequent trains to Enkhuizen. With your ticket to Zuiderzeemuseum (outdoors!) you will get to the museum by small ferry from the station. You can then stay as long as you want. https://www.zuiderzeemuseum.nl/?lang=en
  14. No very unlikely with a HAL transfer. If you realy want to be at the airport in time, book a private transfer and take your luggage of the ship yourself.
  15. Cab from the airport to city centre Amsterdam will cost around E. 60. or more depending traffic. You might try Uber which often is cheaper. Pickup is not at the terminal but near the Sheraton Airport Hotel Otherwise indeed train will be the cheapest and easiest.
