  1. Iceland has many ports. Some have taxis. Some don't. Taxi is a very expensive way to get around in Iceland, which is a very expensive country.
  2. They are both amazing. South coast will be 2 big waterfalls, black sand beach, and it might include Solheimajokull, which is a huge glacier you can walk up close to. Golden Circle is one incredible waterfall, the Geysir, that spouts every 5-8 minutes, and the national park where democracy was invented, Þingvellir (Thingvellir)
  3. Helicopter options in NYC feel poorly timed right about now
  4. We are seeing Hadestown in September, bought the tix right before nominations came out (and prices went up). Network was rough, but Cranston deserved the award, he was amazing. Last time we were in NYC we ate at the "secret" upstairs place from Joe Allen's. And were seated right across from Joe!
  5. no bug spray needed for Iceland. If you go to the Lake Myvatn area (not to the baths or the geothermal area) there are non-biting midges in great numbers. You may want a head net for them
  6. Hundreds of folks do this successfully at every disembarkation
  7. Lots of info on this hotel, etc, on the boards at Flyertalk.com if you don't get info here
  8. Prom is great. We loved everything about Gary (writer, stars, concept) except for the actual show, which is close to the bottom of our all time list of ranked shows.
  9. How you will pay for it depends on the car service company. There are many websites that list tolls for the NYC bridges and tunnels. Rates might be different for a car service company than for you and me, though. The amount will also vary severely depending on which of the 3 metropolitan cruise terminals you are sailing from.
  10. Answered in your other thread. They were never 6 oz. and they weren't very good. I liked the comparison above: It's like the difference between pastrami at a good deli and pastrami if McD's sold it.
  11. Sterna is fine, they are regularly recommended on T.A. boards
  12. KEF recommends arrival 2.5 hours prior to flight. MANY flights leave within the same time slot (like, 15 in an hour) so crowds to check in get very large, with lengthy lines. Our worst case was a 90 minute wait to check in. KEF may be a "small airport" as hallasm suggests, but it's a very crowded airport, and from check in to gates can be a 15 minute walk down a very very long hallway to the International departures area It is about an hour from the city to the airport, a taxi will run you upwards of $150.
  13. You are correct, I meant out of New Brunswick
  14. Where exactly are you starting from, D&S? As mentioned, trains are expensive and very slow. There are alternatives, but it helps to know your entire plan in order to help
  15. What are your ports? What are his interests? Not going to be much in the way of "thrills" in a place like Boston other than Codzilla, but there is something for everyone here. We really enjoyed the Tidal Bore in Newfoundland. Lots of white water and wetsuits were needed
