Hello. My Mom and I with my niece are booked on the Superstar Virgo on Oct 26, 2008. The first trip of Virgo when she goes back to Singapore. I need advise on the shore excursions in Phuket and Penang. Which are the ones you would advise? We are just into shopping. Are its ports away from the shopping areas? Unlike when we docked in Halong Bay, no need for shore excursions since the market was already in the port. I hope that Penang and Phuket is the same.
I am planning to book Golden Landmark Hotel for a one night stay after the cruise. Shopping area and near MTR. Comments please.
Will just take MTR from airport to the Singapore Cruise Terminal via Harborfront MTR station ( is it walking distance to the cruise check in?) And then after the cruise MTR also to the hotel Bugis station. Is this a workable itinerary? I'm trying to save taxi, or taxi is cheaper since we are 3 pax anyway...
Please guide me, thanks.
