  1. We brought all currencies with us and thankful we did. Had we not had any and depended on CC's we would never have been able to do or buy anything in Bergen. Their whole system was down. We believe that we don't accept foreign currency here at home. Why should we expect them to accept USD for our convenience? Yes, they happily accept it but what can they do when a tip is offered in USD? Say no. I don't accept them?
  2. Our cruise was the end of May, beginning of June and the weather was perfect. If we would do it again we would book the exact same time. I can't remember the temps. We did dress in layers. We had rain in a couple of ports but it wasn't an all day rain. We had rain while visiting Pulpit Rock in Stavanger and it was a cold rain. The other port was not.
  3. We've always had the perfect guides. We do like TGBoss and get the included tour in the morning and strike out after it to see/do what we want. I do a lot of research before any cruise and have the highlights of each port printed out. Part of my research is must eat restaurants to have lunch. Missing a meal on the ship is no biggie to us. Experiencing the real food of the country is more important. The free shuttles are extremely helpful.
  4. Thanks. We haven't figured it all out yet but hope the surprise works out.
  5. Ok,. I am from the suburbs of Denver but when someone asks I just say Denver. It's easier.
  6. You are thinking the same as me and MJ is from New York.
  7. Well I see it more than 2 cents. More like a silver dollar.
  8. MJSailors, you are amazing! I appreciate you taking the time to help me. By chance are you mmouse on a different forum?
  9. We had the same worry. We used Norled. They were fabulous. We just weren't comfortable with Rodne's time frame for the ship. You just never know if something could happen for whatever reason. We still had time to explore the town afterwards.
  10. I can't thank you enough MJSailors for your detailed response! And thank you gometros for seconding what was said. Now off to do research. THANK YOU
  11. Great advice. Thanks everyone. We are platinum so we aren't cruise newbies but have never been to New York and as far as I am concerned it is it's own little country, LOL. Huge and daunting. DCL has a 2 day pre stay at the Marriott Marquis with transfers for 1066.00. Airfare is outrageous so was trying to save $$ somewhere. I am assuming that if I have DCL transfers that they will work similarly in Puerto Rico like in Port Canaveral. Great to know about the airlines not allowing you to check luggage prior to 4 hours out. That happened to us years ago in Orlando with Frontier Airlines. What a pain.
  12. That's what I was thinking. It is part of the US so I guessed it's one and done. Thank you Cedricandsophie for your input.
