Re: Re: Med Tour Advice?

Our arrangement with Marcello Marseca is for 400 euros for our group of six plus and additional 100 for a local guide for a 2 hour Pompeii tour. Split six ways, we feel those prices are acceptable.

Behind the lumberjack show, you can rent fishing gear and fish the creek for salmon. Catch and release or have packed and shipped home.

Re: HAL's no tipping policy

Re: Which ship to Alaska?

I agree with what Karen16 said. I think the ports, itinerary, and in the case of Alaska, which Glaicer(s) you see are as important as the ship. One plus for HAL is that they have many Glaicer Bay...
