im hoping to get the running bug, my new year resolution was to up my exercise, plus my sister in law is turning 40 and she is trying to get as many people to sign up for half marathon in october.

so if i do start i will definately sign up as that would be my motivator/kick up the butt i need to keep it up

Yowie! I had coccydynia back when I was pg. You gotta buy the pillow that looks like a wedge of cheese with a U cut out on the fat side. Don't get the donut pillow. My butt feels your pain!

I'd be interested! I tried running on the Wonder on our first cruise and it hurt my knees something awful. Our second cruise I made sure to walk two miles a day and hit the gym. Name the time and I'll be there

I'm from the UK so Europe isn't that bad to travel too - even for 3 nights. So would rather the Wonder be over here as I would have already been on the Magic. Although I wouldn't have the holiday days for it - I already have a US road trip booked for 2014 and we are planning for Tokyo Disneyland which excites us more then another Disney cruise for now!

Our travel agent called DCL and confirmed that they are running transportation from Hobby through our Transatlantic cruise. They asked for our flight information, and our reservation has our transportation listed from Hobby.

Besides limos.com, does anyone have a recommendation for transportation from IAH? We are a party of 6, so private works best.

Hey gonecrusin, sorry for the late reply. Been out of commission travelling and got back just before a 2 day blizzard that knocked out power.

I'm a Canadian that's been travelling back and forth to London for about 6 months now for work. There's lots of stuff to do. With 2 days, you're going to have to really get choosy to decide what to do. Do you want to see museums, castles, trendy stuff, etc. I've been to many of the museums and quite a few of the in-town touristy things.

I know nothing about your likes and dislikes, but if I knew what I knew now but had never been to London, I would do 1 day of hop-on-hop-off bus (Original Tours?) and one country-side tour (Premier Tours). I'd probably do the windsor castle/stonehenge tour. It's so easy to walk around London but the hop-on/hop-off will give you good narration. And here's a tip for that - if you're not getting a good narration, hop off and hop on the very next bus. I'd say about 2/3 of the guides are good.

My wife's never been to London so this is approximately what we are going to do. We have 1 extra day than you.

I don't mind doing my own research but I keep getting stuck trying to find the right website. There are so many resellers or something.

Can you point me in the direction of the best website to use?

Thanks for the tip, I will try and avoid SAS.
I'll second SAS having small seats. I had to fly in Europe on them once and when I tried to sit down, my knees hit the seat in front before my butt hit the seat. That was a bad 6 hours...

Due to some scheduling problems, we will not be joining you on this cruise. We were able to book a transatlantic on RCL which will fit my suddenly rearranged schedule. I wish you all a wonderful trip!

[QUOTE=queenbee99;47146479]Thanks! I went to their site and at first was able to book to Houston but now can't even get anything to come up besides from Barcelona to Iceland. It keeps saying invalid airport. Do you know anyone that has flown with Iceland Air? Read any reviews? I was wondering how their service/flight was. thanks![QUOTE=MandyGirl;47141117]

I'm not sure if this was already mentioned or you figured it out yet, but their website works kind of weird. Keep trying different options. It took me a while to figure out the right things to pick to make the right flight paths show up.

Yep - it was also funny how you could book a one-way but come up with other options, sometimes cheaper, for a stopover. Figured that helped the hotel cost for us.

Due to a variety of scheduling issues, we will not be joining you on this cruise. We were able to book a transatlantic on RCL in April, which will work with my new schedule.

I wish you all a magical cruise!

Again, I'm still behind and catching up. Hopefully it's not all dealt with.

I found there comes a moment with Iceland Air's website where you finally understand why it's working the way it is and you say "aha!". After that, it's much better going. But, I couldn't to save my life explain what that "aha" moment is. Keep trying.
