I will be glad to start a new thread, but before I do, does anyone have a suggestion for a name for our group? I can include it in our title of the new thread. It appears to be the last Med cruise of the season. Maybe some thing about a "Last Tango in Paris" but maybe something more spanish?

Last Flamenco in Barcelona
Hi everyone, I've just moved my booking from the 10 August cruise to this one as the price difference is quite something

This will be my 3rd Disney Med cruise and I'm super excited 'Hi' to everyone on board so far

Cruising with me is my husband Leigh and DD Lydia (14)

Let the planning commence

We are also in WDW during October - we book our ADRs on 4/14/12 - although we are not on the DDP this time, so only have a few character meals to book. Where are you staying?



We were on the Magic last Aug in the med - we absolutely LOVED the med ports - I dont recall the timings changing very much if at all though, and I think the days were long enough - just!!

I did the DCL 1/2 day tour on my own in Monte Carlo (we had planned to do it DIY as a family but there was an accident on the train line and the buses were unbelievably packed as a result - so we spent the morning wandering around Villefranche with the children and I booked the last minute tour in the afternoon for just me) - We plan to do Monte Carlo as a family this time as I loved it and im sure DH will too - and I think we'll book through DCL as their tour was fine & easy on the legs!! and asI am unsure whether the boys would enjoy the hill walking especially if we have the same 45 degree+ heat we had last year I think DCL might be the way to go here for us!!

We stayed onboard at La Spezia last year, but will do the DCL tour of Pisa I think next time - the train sounds easy, but as I am being brave in both Rome and Naples - I will have at least a couple of care-free guided tour days!!

Last year we did DIY in both Rome and Naples (Pompeii/sorrento) through private car tour companies - but next time we plan to just take the bus to Rome and have a wander around the colliseum, spanish steps and Trevi fountain, and we'll take the hydrofoil to Capri, as it sounds easy enough.

Happy planning everyone!!
Ah Amy we cruise again lol

I think a vote might work best. Although, when is too soon? Are we big enough yet?

There aren't many of us are there? Maybe a roll call on for the 1st page would be useful for example: Dis name, no in party etc

The only DCL excursion I booked was the highlights of monaco and montecarlo which was a half day tour (5 hours I believe) and I think it was something like $179 - but my memory isnt too good!!
Hi again Tony just wanted to say I haven't found a list of excursions, but I did find my receipt for the Montecarlo tour and I got that guestimate very wrong!! I only paid $62 for myself on the 1/2 day tour - a bargain compared to the $179 I guessed earlier!!

Thanks, we were a little worried the excursions were going to be too expensive for us. But that sounds a lot better.
