Taking the Oosterdam on 9/20. Have not been to most of the ports. Anyone that could comment on the HAL shore tours in Amsterdam (Canal trip?), Brussels (Choclate factory?), Monaco (Nice or A taste of the Riviera?). We will be flying out of Rome about 1:00 pm or so on debarkation day. Does anyone know what, if anything, is available to see from the ship to the airport? Thanks
My suggestions would be Amsterdam canal trip with Rick. museum, tour to Bruges as Brussels is a long trip and really just a commercial city and Nice unless you want to see the Casino and the church where Princess Grace is buried.
Nothing to see on the way to Rome airport except the countryside. Airport is about 40km outside of Rome so no time to go there. The only way you could do that is take a very early train from the port to Rome , take a quick sightseeing tour then take a train to FCO.
i can tell you that the cruise excursion staff on this ship is the MOST organized I have ever seen .. I heard absolutely no complaints about excurusions .. they went off without a hitch. The day in Moscow turned out about 4 hours long .. but the ship was in port that night so no one seemed to care much .. they kept food available so all was fine
It is a lovely ship and you will have a great time
