I just had this happen last week. I booked through United. The outbound flight was on United, the return on Lufthansa. I booked my (free) seat on the United site, then went to Lufthansa to buy my...

I was hiking in the Lake District a couple of months ago and stayed in the Coniston area. A local museum had an exhibit on the Bluebird, including some rather smashed up parts (to demonstrate the...

Yes, everybody is on the same cruise. When you go to their website, you select the ship and sailing you'll be on. I thought it would be fun to meet some fellow cruisers during the ride and then be...

I only used them once a few years ago. It was convenient, they make a stop or two along the Thruway for food and restrooms. On the return, they wait for everybody. You probably won't leave the port...

Thanks for the info. I did look at Air Transat. The price was good but the schedule is tight. I'm going to be a couple of hours outside of Paris and would have to leave early to get to CDG. I may not...

Yes. Easy drive to YUL.



I've heard that about the clamshell seats. How are the clamshells for just sitting up and reading? What I'm really thinking of doing is flying coach over on the...
Looking to compare Premium Economy on Air Canada and Air France
The title pretty much tells it. I've narrowed down my options for traveling to Paris to either Air Canada or Air France, both using Premium Economy. The price is almost the same, although Air Canada...

Thank you for the updates. I'm leaving next week for the Rhine and although it's a little warmer there than here, I'd love for it to go up a few more degrees. Can you work on that? ;)

In any case,...

The ride is about 2 1/2 hours, and departs almost hourly in the morning.

Last I heard, Amtrak will be resuming its track work this spring, and some trains *might* be using Grand Central. I don't...

I'm looking forward to your posts as I'm doing my first river cruise this year, on the Rhine, in March. So there is a chance of green leaves? ;) It's possible that there will still be snow where I...

Nope, spot on, actually. I said it was $30 extra. The regular renewal was $64.50, then $30 for the enhanced. $94.50 total.

The EDL is $30 extra in NY and is good for 8 years.

I just renewed my NY license yesterday. The basic one can be renewed online. If you want the Real or Enhanced, you have to go to the DMV with lots of documentation. I definitely recommend taking the...

We used The Parking Spot last time we flew out of Newark. There are three locations and I'm not sure which one we used (I'll check, if you want). It was a holiday, so I took whatever was available. I...

Well, I did get my deposit back by invoking the 24 hour rule that the airlines abide by (cruise lines aren't held to it, apparently, but I tried to be nice). I went back to do a mock booking and the...

Well that was fun. I just called to switch from HAL to NCL. It turns out the deposit I paid this morning is non-refundable, part of their "reduced deposit" promotion. I did read the terms and...

SuiteTraveler - Did you leave from Seattle? I was hoping that leaving from Vancouver and through the Inside Passage wouldn't be too rough. And yes, both ships go to Glacier Bay.

I put a deposit down on the Zaandam this morning. But now here's an interesting wrinkle: I looked at how many ships would be in port on each day, and the Zaandam is going to have lots of company. The...

When were you on it? It was refurbished a year or two ago. I was on the Sun about 10 years ago and thought it was just "okay". I was hoping the Alaska scenery would make up for that.
Would you like to help me pick an Alaska cruise?
Yes, it's another "which ship should I choose?" thread :D

I'm looking at a September sailing, roundtrip out of Vancouver. The two ships I'm considering are HAL Zaandam and NCL Sun. They both have...

Then they wouldn't have had ID for the cruise, either, would they?

Yeah - I amended my post. There's a big wide sidewalk along the river. I guess that's the Greenway. It's a pretty and easy walk.

I came out of the shower and found the pilot boat bobbing outside my window :D
