  1. Perhaps this discussion ( CNN does a far better job of raising the issue and clearly elucidating the key points than I) may give skeptics here something to consider. https://www.msn.com/en-us/travel/news/white-island-should-tourists-have-been-on-new-zealands-most-active-volcano/ar-BBY1s12
  2. The company offering this tour was offering the trip even when threat was at level 3 https://www.geonet.org.nz/volcano/whiteisland If you are worried about the "nannies" I am sure you can find plenty of opportunities to walk around a live volcano. here's one in Nicaragua: https://www.tripadvisor.com/Attraction_Review-g551472-d646709-Reviews-Masaya_Volcano_National_Park-Masaya_Masaya_Department.html and here is one you can see by yourself: https://www.tripadvisor.com/ShowUserReviews-g642173-d3381782-r622420773-Scalata_al_Cratere-Isola_Vulcano_Aeolian_Islands_Islands_of_Sicily_Sicily.html No "nannies" to stop you there. As for me personally, I would be reassured to hear that my cruise line does their own due diligence when they offer some potentially high risk excursions and not assume that the local tour operator is extremely cautious about offering such trips.
  3. Looks like Azamara is still offering a white island excursion on its website . https://www.azamara.co.uk/shore-excursion-details/TRB3 There is a discussion about cancellations subject to weather but no warnings about the dangers inherent in such a tour . This is such a tragedy and should be a warning to any of us adventure travelers who have visited active volcanoes and maybe considering doing it in the future .
  4. Suzy-I've been researching similar options for the end of our Azamara Singapore to Dubai Cruise in April. May I ask how you found this company and how much the charge? Also-where are you planning to stay in Dubai? I've read different opinions on the topic. Thanks! Julie

    Mumbai tours

    Jane-reading your post as we pre-plan our Azamara cruise in April when we have only one day in Mumbai If you had to choose only one between your two days of touring which would you pick? Thanks Julie
  7. I am particularly interested to know what is available on sea days. Have any been posted here? Thanks Julie
  8. Las Teresita beach sounds like a good option for our upcoming Celebrity Cruise(in port Oct.19th-a Saturday. Shall we plan on some time walking round the town near the port as well? Thanks! Julie

    Website down?

    Roll call post for an upcoming cruise SINGAPORE TO DUBAI in 2029 alerted me to a change in the itinerary As I have not been notified I attempted to go to the AZAMARA website it seemed to be down.
  10. We already purchased a discounted first night in Murano-used our OB Credit Thanks all! Good for a chuckle today 🙂
  11. Guess I am not experienced enough, having taken only 3 Celebrity Cruises but -is it true that if you are in AQ you dine free in a specialty restaurant the first night?
  12. Since there seems to be a few Silhouette experts on this board can I ask some advice regarding shady areas on deck that might not be apparent to one who has never been aboard this ship? Are there any "secret" spots that tend to be less crowded-shady or not? Also, on our October 13th cruise out of Southampton, if we are in Aqua Class, what time will be ideal for boarding? Thanks all! Julie in Denver
