  1. Hi, I haven't used the shuttle, but I was looking for the same information and came across this youtube video from April/May 2019. At about 2 minutes in the shuttle journey is covered. Not sure of the exact location or if things have changed since then, but it seems to be 5 minutes from the city centre (one of the river cruise docks?). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EvoxdzmSB6w
  2. I haven't cruised in these cabins, but a google search brings up this review for A47 - https://www.cruisecritic.co.uk/memberreviews/memberreview.cfm?EntryID=518882 Cabin Review Large Inside Stateroom with Shower Cabin OA A47 fabulous - no complaints!
  3. Sorry to hear you're not getting answers from MSC. I'll soon be taking my second cruise with MSC for a family gathering, and again the admin problems have started. I hope my family choose another line if we cruise together again, it was an unpleasant start to our last cruise. The information below from a google search is from the MSC Canada website. I suspect that this might apply to other countries as I had also heard of the one time rule. I hope you find the answer to your questions soon. Conversion will be executed by MSC Cruises based on objective criteria and may only be done once per guest. If a guest has loyalty cards with multiple companies, he/she will have to choose which one card to use to take part in the promotion. Please allow 7-10 business days for your status match requested to be completed.

  4. Thanks for your review, we're doing this on Dawn October 2020, with Split in place of Dubrovnik. We still have very fond memories of our back to back Eastern Med and Greek Isles cruise on NCL Jade in 2016, just magical. We were back in Venice and Dubrovnik again this year and were really taken back by the increase in tourist numbers since then. The Alaskan trip sound wonderful, another bucket list one for us - insurance permitting.
  5. We sometimes ask for 'PG Tips', happily provided by the waiters and usually available. The tea count is probably a bit higher than the amount of tea bags used, I usually bring my own tea bags and also my family.
  6. Sorry, not a tablet. I was using a Windows 10 laptop. Hopefully someone will have a tablet solution.
  7. If you are on the P&O forum, go the the search area. The selection will default to 'everywhere', change this to 'this forum'. Hope this helps, it's the system I use.
  8. In the past, Insureandgo have allowed us to pay for an annual policy but defer the start date. It meant we had no cover until the start date kicked in, but we were happy with that risk. With pre-existing conditions it worked well for us, medical cover abroad was our priority.
  9. We did a nutshell excursion with Princess cruises. Bus Flam to Voss. train Voss to Myrdal, train Myrdal to Flam. We both loved the bus drive into the Naeroy valley, it was our favourite part of the trip, (although some tours did the excursion in reverse). Lunch at the Voss hotel was excellent too. We did the boat excursion last year, but our favourite is still the drive into the valley. Hope you have a lovely time!
  10. This link has information on Ijmuiden https://www.whatsinport.com/Amsterdam.htm . According to this, we'll avoid hours in the lock system, and I'm hoping this means we'll be more likely to dock in Amsterdam for our Christmas cruise. I've read on previous threads that high winds often prevent docking in Amsterdam. It would have been nice to pop back to the ship during our overnight stay, but maybe we'll have more time in port? I'm hoping we can work around this without too much disruption.
  11. Tallin. An easy walk from the ship, and a wonderful place for a self guided walking tour. I have to second Rhodes, Funchal and Venice. Now my brain hurts, they're all wonderful :).
  12. We're using this tour in June https://www.geirangerfjord.no/bus-tour-to-mt-dalsnibba . We're also on the Jade in Gerainger 11am - 5pm. Our tour leaves at 12:00 (meeting time 11:50), other days may be different. We are not the only ship in port, so I don't know if we'll use the SeaWalk or tender, just something else to bear in mind if you book a tour.
