  1. We booked with Play Around Tour and she created a great private day's trip. Highly recommended.
  2. That sounds like fun. Did you see post on a roll call thread about how long it took to disembark? Was concerned about how to know what time to book if prebooked something. Still trying to decide what to do.
  3. @eelectric: got our passports back today with visas in place. So paperwork from TA must have been satisfactory. Good luck with yours.
  4. If you find reasonable quote or company then would be grateful for any info. Just two of us. Only done RCI cruise but several with Princess. So very low on loyalty ladder here. QOS will be largest ship we been on. Be quite different i expect.
  5. @mking8288 many thanks for the comprehensive info. @eelectric have you prebooked transfer from cruise terminal to airport? Am now considering waiting for either ship organised shuttle or portside taxi.
  6. Once we finally got the paperwork from cruise1st and could fill in the forms. The visa centre is very busy but very efficient and didn't wait too long. My other half is going in on 26th to collect our passports so will know then if all good. Think we are on bus 4 too. Have you cruised RCI much previously?
  7. Who have not been the most knowledgeable or helpful of companies. Quoted me for transfer to Shanghai Pudgong airport and when I pointed out that this was not our itinerary said they did not have our itinerary details😀. Only just been able to apply for china visa too. Look forward to meeting you on the trip.
  8. Thanks for reply. QOS will be docking in Baoshan as stated and due to nature of our package we fly from Shanghai to Guangzhou where we get the flight back to Oz. Good to know that maybe waiting till we disembark to get taxi at the port is an option.
  9. Yes we leave Sydney on 28th May. After land tour get onto QOS for five day trip to Japan. Are you doing this trip too ?
  10. Despite buying package land and cruise trip with flights we have to make our own arrangements to get from cruise terminal at Baoshan Shanghai to Shanghai Hongqiao airport. The travel agent company are quoting between $175 - $200 for a pre booked car. Is this reasonable? Does anyone know if RCI Quantum of the Seas will offer a shuttle as this is a cruise aimed at the Chinese market, (Shanghai to Japan return)? Anyone with experience of this port and ease of using a taxi as I don't speak Chinese. Quantum are offering sight seeing with drop off but only mentions Pudong airport in Shanghai: the main international one. Information would be great as the travel company are not in the least bit helpful and don't seem to be all knowledgeable about their own product!
