  1. Many thanks for the information. Have a great time when you visit New Zealand.
  2. We will taking our first cruise to New Zealand this November. can anyone give us any information on the areas we will be visiting. we would like to take in some nice scenery if possible. Dunedin - 08:00 till 18:00 we are considering the Taieri railway, has anyone been on this trip ? Akaroa - 08:00 till 18:00 is this area nice enough to spend the whole day there, or would you recommend hiring a car or using public transportation to visit other places. Wellington - 07:00 till 16:00 not really got any ideas yet. Napier - 07:00 till 14:00 not a lot of time, so we need something nice that’s not to far away from port. it will be Sunday too. Tauranga - 07:00 till 18:15 thinking of hiking mount Maunganui summit and then base. does mount Maunganui beach have safe swimming ? or is there better options ? Aukland - 07:00 till 14:00 Again not a lot of time, probably a busy city so don’t want to travel to far from port. thanks for anyone who can help us, we are open to all ideas, and are really looking forward to seeing New Zealand. also any great places for lunch would be great to

Khasab. - 08:00 till 18:00 Abu Dhabi. - 2 days. can anyone give me any information on places to visit, how best to get around, and any scams to watch out for. is it best to have local currency, or could you get by using a credit card? ANY information would be great. thank you.
  6. We visited Reunion island some years ago. We did our own thing using public transport as we don't really take the ships excursions. That said, Reunion island can get very busy, and we were a little worried about the time. If I ever visit Reunion island again, I would take a ships excursion. Better safe than sorry.
  7. Thanks for the replies. We don't usually use the ships excursions, we usually try and make our own way by using public transport. Could you tell me where the nearest bus stop is ? We have the times for the bus, just don't know where to catch it. As for Vestmaana, can you book the cliff tour on the day, or is it likely to be booked up. A bit worried about booking in advance in case we fail to make it on time. Do they have any other tours ?
  8. Has anyone visited the Faroe isles ? We will be visiting in July as part of an Icelandic & Northern isles cruise. We dock in Kollafjordour - 09.00 till 16.30. Can't decide wether to visit Torshavn or Vestmaana. Has anyone any information on the area, and how to best to get about. We usually avoid the ships tours. Any info on Kollafjordour would be welcome also. Thank you.
