Yes, we will be on both the Oct 12 and Oct 24 cruises. We are currently planning to take the train to the port. We have booked the Best Western Universo hotel for Oct 11. It is close to the train station. We have read on several other posts from previous travelers that the train only takes about 1 hour to the port. However, we would also consider going with a group if it could be arrainged at a reasonable price. Hope this answered your questions. Larry.
