  1. What is the availability of parking in Oia?
  2. Just get there early and there should be spots available.
  3. I have a pacsafe strap and bag. Hopefully, they will work for you.
  4. We did a ship tour and found it well organized. We saw just about all of the main sights and had some free time to boot. The guides were great and we did not feel that we overpaid.
  5. There are some pictures from the Santa Cruz barrio in a link I put in an earlier post. Our tour gave time for lunch on our own, which was great because we had a quick lunch. The one site we missed was the inside of the cathedral. However, that was our choice as we chose to walk around. Also, if we wanted, we would have had time for a horse and carriage ride. I agree that Seville is worth the trip from Cadiz.
  6. We had the same choice and chose Pompeii. No regrets. Pompeii seemed like a unique destination. The only negative was how hot it was that day in July.
  7. I wonder if anyone has a picture of the new setup.
  8. We sailed in late May and there was plenty of space.
  9. I can also answer for pre-COVID. We were once late arriving (on the ship) coming back into Baltimore. They held up traffic coming into the lot until spaces opened up by those leaving. Since there was only one entrance to the lot our uber (who had passengers on board for the follow on cruise) could not get in to pick up.
  10. I was thinking the same thing as the previous poster. Taxis are lined up at the port and ready to go. It is an efficient operation. Ride to the airport is a little over 30 minutes. As the previous poster said, not sure what changes have been made due to COVID.
  11. It is really unbelievable how easy they make it in Baltimore. Everything close in.
  12. In Juneau, helicopter with glacier landing. I am also a fan of the train in Skagway.
  13. I would also go with Capri unless Sorrento gets extended down the Amalfi Coast.
  14. We've cruised out of Baltimore twice in late December. While it can vary both times first and last days were indoor days.
  15. I've sailed under Verrazano Br and it must have been a smaller ship because it didn't seem as close.
  16. People on their first trip wonder why I am setting up with my camera or video
  17. I've cruised from Baltimore six times and it never looks like the ship is going to clear the Key Bridge
  18. Have also been there on Christmas and everything was open
  19. We've done the walk to the Queen's stairway. OK way to spend a morning. We have also gone to Cabbage Beach (by taxi). Beach is very nice, but as a previous poster said - no facilities. We went in the morning and back to the ship for a late lunch.
  20. So, that is another evening option instead of the wall!!
  21. What about the cable car? Does that remain open?
  22. Interesting question. I would probably not be first in line but if it got consistently good reviews,, why not
  23. Here are some pictures from our trip. Mark and Karen Alaska 2011 (shutterfly.com)
