  1. We were on Explorer last year, large balcony cabin 10117. Great spot, no movement or noise. Personal choice but I wouldn't bother with a large balcony again as the extra balcony space seems to be taken off the cabin. Would rather have more space in the cabin. Being towards the back we were just upstairs to the Market Place for breakfast, very handy! There are plenty of water dispensers on each corridor so you can fill your water bottles. The dining areas are bright and modern and it's good having the Italian section. Yes, a lovely ship much newer than Dream. However, again personal choice, we preferred Discovery due to the layout of the ship. Don't have any doubts, just book - you will have a great time
  2. Thank you so much. Having checked, it seems we can take the little train up to the town and then wander back through the streets.
  3. Agree also to DIY. If you want to go up to AnnaCapri and the chair lifts, you can take a bus but I would recommend taking a taxi - we shared with someone else. The queue for the taxi was enormous and the buses are only small due to the narrow winding streets. Also agree to book your return ferry as soon as you arrive then you know you are guaranteed a place at the time you require it.
  4. Has anyone done this itinerary yet? Just wondered what you did at each port. Some of them we have visited before so looking for ideas. Thanks

    Does anyone have any info on Tarragona cruise port? I believe it's quite a walk into the town, are taxis easily available and what is the cost to the cathedral. Any other info would be appreciated.
  6. Personally that's one of the reasons we like cruising, dressing up in the evenings as we don't get much opportunity at home. Makes it more special.
  7. Thank you for your comments, always good to have up to date info. Look forward to our cruise on her in September.
  8. Hi, does the X80 pick up at the port and does it go direct to Athens or stop to pick people up? Thanks
  9. We had a pleasant day in Molde. We walked from the ship up the hill to the Romsdal Museum which shows how the Norwegians used to live. There are several houses to look round and there's a cafe. The town is known for it's roses and you can smell them as you pass people's gardens. The town is pleasant enough with shops and cafes. Lots of cafes near the ship for those who don't want to walk far.
  10. Sorry only just seen your post. A few years ago we booked deck 3/4 but decided to take pot luck with the cabin. We were allocated 418 which was 3 cabins from the front. At first we were delighted as this cabin was larger than previous cabins but we were awaken at 6am every morning with what sounded like the anchor being lowered. I would definitely take my chances with the lifts rather than have this cabin. Must admit we always have ear plugs in our luggage. Enjoy your cruise!
  11. Thank you both for the info. Could you please advise the cost of these tours?
  12. Definitely bring the binoculars, last year we had whales alongside!
  13. Lucca is a beautiful little walled town well worth visiting. Not sure if there is an excursion or a train from Marina Di Carrara but may be worth looking into.
  14. Google Marella Explorer 2 AI Drinks Package you will find all the details.
