    Florence tour

    Does anyone have a recommendation on a private tour out of Livorno with a company that is not just a driver but a tour guide as well? It seems like most companies are mostly drivers only. Thanks!
  2. Thank you Blackshirt. Well, today I can see the 1 device. I did not see it the other day on Cruise Planner. The difference between the two makes the 2 devices a good deal and we may likely need to be on at the same time (work stuff) so not a bad deal overall. Thank you for your response.
  3. Thank you for the responses. Just to clarify, like I mentioned in my original post, I usually sail Celebrity. I have read that Royal doesn't give me the same perks as I get with them..... hence this post. Also... the Cruise Planner mentions that I get TWO devices per person... not one. So my question was, can me and my cabin mate share the package for 1 and both of use our own ONE device? There was no option for VOOM for 1 device. It was for 2 devices. And in response to discounted items with my status.... does Royal give us coupons like Celebrity does? Like laundry and wifi? If so, I'll wait on the internet, but I read somewhere that they don't give as great as coupons as Celebrity does.
  4. I haven't sailed RCCL in quite some time. I'm used to Celebrity where my status gets me free wifi. In the Cruise Planner I'm seeing the price for the Voom package and it says two devices. So... can my husband and I just buy for one person and both of us sign up one device? I don't do a lot of online activity but thought it looked affordable if only one of us purchased. Thoughts? Thanks in advance!
  5. Thank you so much everyone! I'll check all of this out. I appreciate the responses.
  6. Hi all... does anyone have any recommendations on things to do in this port? It looks beautiful but having a hard time finding things. I'd LOVE to do something active... SUP'ing or bike tour. Anyone have any experience with this port? Also, where exactly do we go into on the tenders?
  7. You did very well on your pricing. We usually fly Delta no matter what... living in SLC and all. But to go to Auckland there was just no easy way and I was NO WAY flying to SYD first and then backtracking. If it's Delta equipment, it's the only choice. That is a great price... especially from where you are departing. I would never book a domestic flight without an hour layover and depending on the international connection, I could need well over 2 hours. That said, I have terribly long layovers for this New Zealand cruise. Uggg. Good job on your flights! Have a great time!
  8. Does anyone have a recommended transfer company I can reserve to get to the cruise port? There are 3 of us ladies :). Would a taxi be cheaper? I'm thinking with luggage and all, we may need something a bit larger than a standard taxi. Thanks!
  9. Very few Delta flights are letting you upgrade after buying economy seats with miles now. It's very frustrating. What cost us $159 last year to BCN, now the ticket is more than twice as much as econo to fly PE. It looks like they are kind of reinventing the class, but they are going to have to do a lot more than offer drinks and priority boarding to what the PE cabin is now. Their international PE cabin is ridiculous. And this is coming from someone who loves Delta. I just booked flights for our NZ/Australia cruise and we can't do anything with Delta that makes sense. I'm not flying to SYD first to backtrack back to New Zealand. After terrible options and pricing, we bit the bullet and paid for nice Air NewZealand flights going from SLC to SFO to AUK... all premium economy and the seats look soooo much better than we've ever had on Delta's PE.
  10. Excellent info. I will get ahold of them for my trip in January :). Thanks!
  11. Awesome! Thanks guys! I'll plan to be there at noon then!
  12. Does anyone have any experience with how early we can board the ship in Singapore? We'll be sailing on the Volendam on December 6th.. after the dry dock so no one will be coming off. Thoughts? I was thinking of getting there at noon.
  13. I guess I just don't get the appeal of the beverage cards... for us it's going to be the same credit card used at the end of the cruise anyway. We don't buy anything but drinks and the gratuities added at the end of the cruise.
