  2. O Thank You!! This wasn't my first Itinerary choice - But agreed , as to be able to help my folks plan and make the most of the Sites at the ports. I am so happy to hear your Positive Thoughts!!
  3. Looks Like 3 Formal Nights on our 16 day cruise from Singapore north to Shanghai - Octogenarian Parents & 3 middle aged ladies traveling. Been on several Princess cruises but never in this part of the world - Will formal nights here be similar? If there are other differences - Other than attire - would love to hear about that too.

    Singapore Port

    Thank you for ALL Your Suggestions... The Port is the Marina Bay Cruise Centre (MBCCS). We are staying in Chinatown area but wondered if after dropping off luggage at Port, We could take a taxi to some spot closer to port area to spend an hour or 2 . AND that brings up a Second Question - We are a group of 5 adults - So are taxis readily available for 5 passengers? Again Thank You!!

    Singapore Port

    Are there things to do and see after dropping off your luggage at the port? Between Hotel Check out time and the ship leaving is there anything worth walking around to see that is very close to the port? What facilities does the Port offer? Any Suggestions would be very helpful!
  8. Did you reserve and pre-pay for your shuttle online first or just show up and pay there??
  9. Gorgeous Photos! How many people on your Dyea Dave Emerald Lake Tour?

Anything You would like to add that would be helpful is Very Much Appreciated!!
  12. What are some Pros & Cons of taking White Pass & Yukon Train Both Ways - or Bus one way and train other?
  13. I have been told by a family member who lives in Buenos Aries for almost 5 years now – that he has never exchanged money in a bank – always in Casa De Cambios ( Translation - House of Change) for the best rate.. Especially if they are large bills. (100's bring the Best rate) - Be sure to Bring only new untorn/unfolded bills. You will need Passport for ID. Right now it is around 35 - So $100.00 USD would equal 3,500 AR Pesos Here is a Trip advisor post from this year basically saying the same…... https://www.tripadvisor.com/ShowTopic-g312741-i979-k11258410-Casas_de_cambio-Buenos_Aires_Capital_Federal_District.html I just googled " casa de cambios buenos aires" and many options show up
