  1. Sorry, but I can't personally recommend any tours. Staying so close to so many sights and the tube we toured on our own. I did investigate London Walks, but never used them.
  2. Great! I hope you like it as much as we did. You might try The Sanctuary House on Tothill St. for the pub atmosphere. We have gone to an Italian restaurant, Colosseo, on Victoria St. several times. Both of these restaurants are quick walks from St. Ermin’s.
  3. Thanks, Pooh. I thought that would be the case but wanted to check. Do you know the price of the individual promo(packages)? I saw them once on the Princes site, but can’t find them any longer. Anita

  5. I did a quick crunch of the numbers, and it may be worth it to use the sale. My question is, what happens to the air reservations that I made on EZ Air? Do they stay the same? Do I have to rebook them, if available at the same price or the price states today?
  6. Great! You will be happy with St. Ermin’s and the area. We used Blackberry cars from the airport at £39. This was the Fall of 2018. We are retirees and also did not want to bother with luggage especially after the flight.
  7. We have stayed at St. Ermin’s Several times. It is well cared for with clean rooms and a helpful staff. It is an older building with rooms of different shapes and sizes. What attracted me the first time was that it is within walking distance to many sights from Buckingham Palace to Trafalgar Square. For those going farther a field the St. James Park tube is around the corner. We have never eaten in the hotel, but there are plenty of restaurants for lunch and dinner in the area. We usually do breakfast at a Prete a manger; there are two locations that are very close.
  8. We usually get the Soda and More package since my husband always seems to need a glass of soda. He does not drink water! He also likes to get some type of juice to have in the room over night; he gets this at any bar before we head up tot our room. The only time we do not purchase the package is on a port intensive cruise where we will be off the ship just about every day. It is well worth the money for us.
  9. We leave on the Sapphire on Oct. 21. It is our first time booking a guarantee. I know we will have a room, but I keep looking because I am more curious and excited rather than anxious. We booked a BD balcony guarantee.
  10. This is a bit off topic......We are using EZ Air to and from Europe this Fall. Going is a direct flight, and we will be in London 3 days before the cruise. My question concerns the return flight from Rome. We have a quick connection in Zurich. I was wondering if there is any help for us from Princess, if we miss the connection from Zurich to home - EWR? I hate doing connecting flights, but there was no alternative from Rome.
  11. Thank you John for the info about the mini taxis. This sounds like the way to go, but are there enough taxis to accommodate cruisers when a large ship is in port?
  12. We will be there in October. I was wondering what are the chances of getting one of these private taxi/minis when a ship is in port. I see that our ship, the Sapphire, is running several of these tours for $79 a person.
