  1. Giants Causeway ?? We did find a private tour that isn't too outrageous that will go here and along the Antrim Coast and stops along the way.....I think we might go that route??
  2. Thanks Geoherb! We decided to take the cruise ship bus to Edinburgh and do it on our own, it was what I wanted to see and figure since it is a little drive may as well take a ship excursion so if something happens they will wait for us!! Rather than trying to figure out the train to save just a few dollars!!
  3. Thanks for the tips you guys are awesome ๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰
  4. Yes I have read a lot some say strap others say the stairs are not all together so a break in between ๐Ÿ˜€it looks so cool we might try it I walk a lot hubby not so much and the couple we are traveling with are avid hikers so maybe they can carry us ๐Ÿคฃ๐ŸคฃI am going to be in the hunt for light boots!!
  5. Seeking help from those who wish to help out a 2nd time Europe traveler, but first time in British Isle's. Just some port info, since we probably won't get back to Ireland/Scotland want to make sure we see some beautiful sites!! We are both in our 50's with no restrictions!! Belfast - Giants Causeway or Gibbon's Hike?? We want to see beautiful countryside, we are traveling with friends who are a do it on your own people where I am a little uncomforatble and like someone to take me to places! I did post on the Gibbon's previously so know I need boats which doesn't help my need to pack a bag under 50 pounds for 18 days in Europe that has a 10 day cruise as part of it, but it does look so picturesque!! Greenock/Glasgow - Have read nice things about Edenburgh and the ship does have a do it on your own bus that goes there. Which makes me feel more comfortable than doing the train on our own! Is this a top thing to see in this part of the country? Holyhead Wales -- ?? Cork -- I did see the Blarney Castle as a huge tourist thing but I don't think I would want to kiss the stone!! Ring of Kerry Tour I heard is wonderful but need something from the Port and I know this is far away. Thanks for any suggestions you may have!!
  6. I am a planner!! The cool thing is even if you end up having to cancel you only lose $50 of your deposit pp and can move the rest to another cruise. That is if you get the restricted deposit which is usually the case if you pay half of a normal deposit! Oh well last minute is fun too, except for the pocket book!! You will have fun with your family on a brand new boat!!
  7. Thanks for the feedback!! I feel the same about Cabo, Cancun and Puerto Vallarta I have never felt unsafe but then again I am not wondering the streets late at night usually in a resort! Ok then if o donโ€™t have to worry about it a taxi it is! You wouldnโ€™t remember about how much a taxi was to gold zone would you? Just wanted to compare it to when I get a quote on the private transport we have 8 in our group so thought it would be nice to stick together if itโ€™s not too much more ๐Ÿ˜€
  8. We booked in March of 2018 ๐Ÿคฃ๐ŸคฃI always want a specific room just booked for New Years 2021 on the Mardi Gras wanted the corner excel suite it has its own jacuzzi!! We do an every other New Years Cruise with friends because it is so much fun to be on a boat on New Years ๐ŸŽ‰๐Ÿพ๐Ÿฅ‚they price match if the price goes down so why not book early ๐Ÿ˜€
  9. We are going on the new Carnival Panorama this New Year's and need some help. I have been to Cabo and Puerto Vallarta many times, but am a little leery about Mazatlan since even the cruise ships stopped going a few years back. I think all we want to do is go to a specific restaurant in the Gold Zone and probably just walk around there. I was wondering about transport there from the Cruise dock. I know its about 6 miles away so too far to walk. Should we prebook transport or is there enough taxi's when you get off. This new Carnival boat has over 4,000 passengers and with it being a new years cruise I am sure it will be full so not sure if we will be fine or if I should prebook a transfer. Has anyone went recently, I know not on the Panorama since it doesn't even sail until mid-December but maybe at port with other ships at the same time?? Thanks for your help!!
  10. Thanks Darren but we don't golf ๐Ÿ˜œbut being from the US I think just looking at the country side and buildings is enough for me!!
  11. What is a must do at this Port I am having trouble finding something interesting so want to know what people recommend. Thanks for your help!!
  12. Love the Aft Junior Suite friends had it on the Alaskan Cruise last June 2018 and have it again on our British Isle Cruise in June 2020 we got 1602 since their balcony is bigger it wraps to the side we had 1098 on the Alaskan which was to the side of them had a larger balcony for a JS on the side since half was covered and half was open it is said to be an obstructed view but it was fine. I love the back of the boat and figured we would save the $$ since the Suite is so much more $$ I thought $9,500 was enough for a 10 day but we will be in Europe!!! Did anyone end up picking the 1602?? Would like the details!!
