  1. I am aware it's about a 3 hour drive, but thought there might be bus/shuttle service. I did look into renting a car, which seems affordable. And I hadn't even thought of flights. They seem a bit expensive, but thanks for all the info, everyone!
  2. Has anyone taken a shuttle from Orlando to Miami? Wondering if anyone has a recommendation of one to use and the approximate cost.
  3. Kelp Reef is located at Fisherman’s Wharf and only does tours. Victoria Kayak is at the Inner Harbour and does both tours and rentals so you can venture out on your own. We had rentals booked at Victoria Kayak last weekend but had to cancel due to the weather, so I haven’t actually been out on either of them. https://victoriakayak.com/ https://kelpreef.com/
  4. Generally show times are 7 & 9 PM, but that can vary by half an hour or so. It at least gives you something to go on.
  5. Please confirm (or deny) that I'm right about this: any 2- or 3-bedroom suite on any NCL ship is listed as a per person price, correct? So under no circumstances would it ever be cheaper to pay for a 2-bedroom suite and split the price between two couples?
  6. There's more than one thread on the Norwegian forum where people share exactly what they bid, what was accepted, and what was not.
  7. Yes, but when you come back, all that same scenery will be on the port side...
  8. I appreciate the responses. It seems that all cruise lines charge for some extras - even those such as Heidi13 sails with; their upcharges simply make the base fare higher. I think I’d rather start with a lower base fare and then add on those things I’d actually use.
  9. I have only sailed with NCL. I often read people saying that NCL “nickels & dimes” you to death. Because I have no experience with other lines for comparison, I’m curious to know: what exactly is included in other lines that NCL charges extra for?
  10. Thank you all so much! We’ve only ever cruised NCL so I’m not familiar with what RCL offers. This is very helpful. Loved the link to the Cruise Compass too!
  11. We’re considering the Symphony of the Seas. It looks amazing with so many activities and entertainment options. But I can’t seem to find a list of what activities and entertainment are complimentary vs. an additional cost. Can someone point me in the right direction?
  12. I've been in the pools on all of the ships I've been on, and a couple of hot tubs too. Never gotten sick. Never died. Never seen puke in or around one. I'm pretty sure it's fine to go in.
  13. You can also consider just going a la carte at the other two restaurants you want to try, instead of buying a package. Victoria is lovely and perfectly safe. If you enjoy walking, it's a beautiful and leisurely stroll from the cruise terminal to the inner harbour. I would suggest either walking or taking a cab to Fisherman's Wharf first. Enjoy a wander around there (and be sure to look for the seals!). From there, catch a water taxi ($6/per person) over to Chinatown. The water taxis are one of my favourite parts of Victoria. You'll get some great views of The Empress Hotel from the water taxi. You can also buy a hop on hop off package for the taxis and ride them to all kinds of destinations. Be sure to stop at the main Inner Harbour right in front of the Empress and get off. Walk down Government Street and definitely buy Roger's Chocolates! I could go on all day about Victoria and all the things to do there. Been there too many times to count and absolutely love it.
