I don't speak Spanish or Italian, although my daughters supposedly speak French... However, that being said I do have a fabulous phone scheme which allows me to make international phone calls to land lines (not cell numbers) for pennies. So, if we need to be making phone calls in English, I volunteer for that... Now, what kind of phone calls may you ask? I don't know. Maybe to make a reservation or ask about something? I don't know, really... I am just desirous of helping but don't want to mess things up.... I need leadership! Somebody let me know what I can do!
I'll have my fingers crossed that you board that ship Debbie

Your phone call offer will come in handy I'm sure, especially when we start to plan a Dis meet on the ship etc so thank Yiu

Happy planning

Mel, you're in Manchester!

We have been living in Failsworth/Newton Heath for 7 months now. Down the road, would you please keep me informed on plane tickets and transportation? We have another family of 4 traveling with us, and we were looking to hire someone to take us to and from port. DisneyCruise transportation can get a bit dear.

Hey you are close I will add a post when the flights start to be released, but Monarch have theirs available already. I'd also suggest grabbing a couple of taxis to the port or pre booking so much cheaper

Ok, I like to plan early. I'm having a rough time figuring how to get to Rome from the port cheaply. I've been to Rome 7 times (5 times as a tour guide) so I know how to get the most in the shortest amount of time, and therefore do not plan on paying for a tour. Anyone been to Roma via the port before?

If you have not booked your holiday yet, consider using Small World Vacation, Inc. Their prices are identical to what you get online with DCL, but they give you a $150 on board credit!! I hope that didn't sound like a sales pitch, but it just was a help to us.
