Is there a section on CR to discuss this...pros and cons,,specific questions answered,etc??If not,,maybe good to start,,as the river cruise section.May take awhile to get going,but know I have questions conc.my AMA cruise and airfare.
Have taken cruise air and booked on own,,but this one is confusing.With airlines I never heard of,,date changes,,,airport times,,etc...Also,,have found out most online travel sites DONT handle separate air,,just thru cruiseline.Any ideas?
I'm not understanding what you mean online sites don't handle separate air. Do you mean cruise only websites? What kind of questions do you have? The times and dates on air is always the time and date of the destination you are leaving or arriving at respectively. For instance if it says you are leaving Miami at 11:00AM on 2 Jun and arriving in Rome on 3 Jun at 6:00 AM it means exactly that. The air schedule has already taken in consideration and allowed for the difference in time change between the destinations.
I mean asking other posters questions re cruise air...
for instance,,specific airline questions and their experiences..like did you ever fly Asiana air,etc?
Internet vacations booking sites,,,like vacationsto....com,,abbreviated...just offer cruise and not separate travel agent to deal with booking air on own.This will be my 3rd different booking site,,and told me they only book assoc.cruise air and to find my own. Told they are "booking agents" not "travel agents".??
Am trying to find best deals for AMA river cruise from Orlando to Hanoi and back from Hochi minh and very confusing..
With regards to the airport times, the times listed, as mentioned, are local airport times. I live on the east coast, and have relatives on the west coast, so this comes up often for me when we book flights to see relatives. Example, if you're looking at a website and it states you arrive in Hanoi at 12:00 pm, they mean 12:00 pm Hanoi time.
