  1. Thanks for the replies! Yes I use Uber app and I don't "call" Uber 🙂 I'd love to use local proper taxis service, but people reported been ripped off by the taxis waiting at the pier, because some of them would paint their cars to look like the recommended ones.
  2. Our cruise ship Norwegian Gateway will call in Tallin. What's the best way to get Uber from the cruise terminal to Alexander Nevsky Cathedral? I'd imagine the pier would be very congested with tourists and taxis. Should I walk to a close by landmark and then call Uber? I'd read the forum about the taxis warning, and I am not sure if I'll be able to find the recommended Tallink Takso and Tulika Takso from the other taxis at the pier, and I've never used Taxify. We cannot walk up the hills and steps to Alexander Nevsky Cathedral, reason for the ride to the cathedral, then walk back to the ship. Other suggestions for the ride to Alexander Nevsky Cathedral (or top of the hill in Old Town) are welcome. Thanks!
  3. Thanks for the photos and info! Was there a bus ticket dispenser inside the cruise terminal?
  4. Celebrity and Royal started to charge non-refundable deposits even for advanced reservations, and Norwegian offers free cancellation up to the final payment date.
  5. I was following the news of Norwegian cutting short 2 days on Getaway 04/27 sailing, and I hope there will be a satisfactory solution for all fellow cruisers. I should also report that I received a email from TA today that Norwegian changed our upcoming summer Getaway Baltic cruise schedule to dock in Stockholm instead of Nyshahamn, to "enhance the guest experience" as the email stated. My understanding was Norwegian stopped calling in Stockholm last year, and I am glad that Norwegian decided to call in Stockholm again. Now I just have to figure where in Stockholm the ship docks 🙂
  6. thanks for the replies! Is there an option to "add fare" to the City Pass Small to go to Frederiksborg Palace in Hillerød? I plan to buy the 96 hour City Pass Small (cheaper for more days), but plan to visit Frederiksborg Palace in one of the days. Thanks.
  7. thanks for your reply, also your blog was very helpful with nice photos!
  8. Hi, does anyone know where is the drop off place in Stockholm? We'll be sailing in Getaway and are interested in taking the excursion "Stockholm on your own" from Nynashamn, but the Norwegian website only stated drop off in a central location... Thanks!
  9. Hi, I read up the wonderful info in this Copenhagen thread, and looked up the City Pass website, and would like to confirm with the local experts here: City Pass Small is good enough for trips between CPH airport (or downtown Indre By) and OceanKaj cruise port, but I should get the City Pass Large if I plan to go to Frederiksborg Castle. I plan to buy the City Pass on arrival at CPH airport (I read that you can buy online and they send you SMS to your cellphone, but I am not sure if I'll have data reception in Copenhagen, also not sure if I could stack 4 passes in one cell phone for the family). Thanks in advance!
  10. Thanks so much for the replies! Just wanted to confirm that I should call Norwegian excursion instead of booking the excursion online using my Norwegian website account.

  12. Hi, we have the $50 discount per port cruise excursion promotion and also $100 of shipboard credit for our upcoming Baltic cruise, and I am confused about how to take advantage of both in a cruise sponsored excursion. Should I book the excursion prior to boarding the cruise, or book it once on board? I read that I might not be able to use the shipboard credit if the excursion is booked prior to boarding, but others mentioned that the excursion was not charged until once on board even if it's booked prior to boarding. Thanks in advance! Michael
  13. Thanks for all the replies! Norwegian excursion transfer info says 10 hours tour duration starting at 7:30 AM, which means the last bus leaving for port would be around 5:30 pm. I've read in the forum that the line to purchase 24 hour transportation pass at the Nynashamn station had a long wait, but it would be interesting to visit the city station deep underground! Do you know if the signs are in Swedish only, or English as well? Thanks for all the helpful info!
  14. Traveling in Norwegian Getaway, will dock in Nynashamn on a Sunday in June. Norwegian transfer costs $50 pp (#30 children), but we also have a $50 cruise excursion credit, so total after the credit would be $130. For a family of 4 (2 adults and 2 teenagers), what would you recommend, Norwegian transfer or DIY train to/from Stockholm? Thanks in advance! Michael
