-I requested a suite in the older building, but there are only 3 suites in that building and at first they were unable to fulfill the request. No matter though, we were upgraded to a spectacular Park Executive suite that was possibly the most spacious hotel room I’ve ever been in. The room normally sells on their website for $1,100 per night, so not a bad deal for 18,000 points per night (a value of 6.1 cents per point). The room had 2 bathrooms, a vast dining and living room area, an office, a couple of closets, and a huge master bathroom and rain shower and jacuzzi. Not that I don’t have any complaints about the room though. The light switches are seriously poorly conceived. They are too “modern” for practical usage, even their own employees could barely operate them. Also a dozen lights are controlled by a single switch which is highly impractical and switches are not where they ought to be and are quite … [Read more...] about Trip Notes: Buenos Aires, Argentina
Buenos aires argentina
For example we needed to find a boat that departed from Ushuaia on a Monday and returned on a Thursday. A Sunday departure would have required passengers to be in Ushuaia for Shabbos. A Tuesday departure would have arrived back into Ushuaia on Friday, requiring passengers to be in Ushuaia for Shabbos. Halacha (Jewish law) requires that you not board a ship 3 days before Shabbos, which ruled out Wednesday-Friday departures. The reason for that is so that you can acclimate to the waters and have a pleasant Shabbos. There are leniencies potentially available on modern stable cruise ships, but as we would be crossing the infamous Drake Passage where the waters can be quite violent, where no such leniency would apply. … [Read more...] about Antarctica Trip Notes Part 1: Buenos Aires+Planning And Positioning For The Adventure Of A Lifetime
A lot of the most valuable and popular anniversary night hotels are going away. Those include the Hyatt Centric South Beach Miami, Hyatt Regency Coconut Point Resort and Spa, Andaz Costa Rica Resort at Peninsula Papagayo, Hyatt Regency Amsterdam, and Hyatt Regency Hong Kong Tsim Sha Tsui. Maui gets hit hard, with the Andaz climbing to category 7 and the Hyatt Regency climbing to category 6. Category 5 luxury bargains like the Park Hyatt Buenos Aires, Park Hyatt Mallorca, Park Hyatt Seoul, Park Hyatt Abu Dhabi, and the Andaz Mayakoba near Cancun all become less of a bargain, going up from category 5 to 6. Tokyo loses a highly rated bargain as the Andaz joins the Park Hyatt there at category 7. A true Maldives bargain, the Park Hyatt, will also climb to category 7. No top-tier category 7 hotels are going down in category. My kids will be bummed that their pool around the corner at the Hyatt Place Legacy Village has climbed up from category 1, which … [Read more...] about Hyatt 2019 Annual Category Changes, Lock In Lower Rates And Anniversary Nights At Hotels Getting More Expensive Now!

It also houses the ship’s infirmary. Deck 3 houses the triple cabins, as well as the mud rooms and zodiac boat exits from where we would change into boots and leave on Antarctic expeditions. Deck 4 has the twin cabins, the ship’s boutique, and the main dining room. Deck 5 has the superior and superior plus cabins, as well as the lounge, bar, and an aft observation deck. Deck 6 has the suites, the Bistro with its indoor and heated outdoor seating, the ship’s bridge, and an aft observation deck. Deck 7 has the pool, hot tub, exercise room, and the library with expansive views forward. Deck 8 is the main forward observation deck. Most decks have indoor and outdoor portions.
