    There is a recent review here:
  2. There is a luggage storage facility (Deposito Bagagli) in Piazzale Roma next to the entrance of the People Mover - this is the one that we found most convenient. Other options found here: https://europeforvisitors.com/venice/articles/venice-left-luggage.htm
  3. Not something we would recommend - there is no way that we would attempt a trip into AMS with such a short window of time. In addition to getting to/from AMS, you must factor in screening time at Schipol and during the summer months this can take quite a while.
  4. Agree with previous post - we DIY from Naples - very easy to DIY and no need to book a ship excursion.
  5. We didn't need to book any tickets in advance as entrance is free. We simply took the Connexxion Bus (#391) from Centraal Station - Zaanse Schans is the last stop.
  6. Forgot to include: Transportation options here: https://www.rome2rio.com/map/IJmuiden/Amsterdam Are both of your tours booked in AMS? Where do you meet your guide?
  7. Public transportation is rather complicated and it will eat up quite a bit of your time. Your best options would be, imho, ship shuttle (if one is offered) or taxi (will be rather pricey due to distance). You might also try uber. Is the a port visit or is your cruise ending here? There is a public bus that you can take but you will need to walk some distance to the bus stop - if memory correctly serves, the bus takes approximately 45 minutes but note that the bus does not terminate in AMS city center - it terminates at Sloterdijk station.
  8. I would check with your cruise line - they will most likely have the information for which you are looking.
  9. My guess would be that many onboard the scientology vessel were not vaccinated.
  10. We DIY for both Schonbrunn & the Hofburg. You can take the U4 to the Schonbrunn station and from there it is a mere 550m to the palace (about 8 minutes).
  11. Pacsafe offers some great anti-theft camera and tablet bags. Link below: https://www.pacsafe.com/bags/camera/ You can also purchase just the anti-theft camera straps: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B000TCU1Z8?tag=ng0101-20 Never leave your camera, tablet, smartphone, etc. unattended by placing on table, over the back of a chair or the like.
  12. The USA is still attempting to grapple with the problem of overtourism in the national parks. Yellowstone was simply swamped with tourist hordes when we visited 2 years ago and one of the park rangers told us that there has been a lot of damage to the delicate ecosystem.
  13. hah - my first thought was that you had lost your mind. 😎
  14. Yes, and we are not surprised. Many European cities are instituting regulations to ameliorate issues caused by overtourism.
