That is what I remember from Alaska two years ago as well - 120 days out. They kind of screw themselves over by waiting so long. I have already booked for Rome and Turkey. Only thing I will do with Disney now is the Historical Scavenger Hunt in Malta. Everything else I can do on my own or book a tour guide at the sites in Athens.

I wonder why they are taking so long? All the other tours are up.

slg - any reason they need to be Disney? Only reason I can think of is guaranteed to return to the boat on time. I have used the Rick Steeves book for recommendations.

But isn't our cruise still 165 days away? That would mean another 45 days if it's 120 days out, right? Or am I missing something??

I was just on the DCL website. The choice of Epheseus and Piraeus (Athens) is now available -- a message appears that "There were no results to match your search."

BUT it means the excursions are imminent!!!!

Hi everyone, and Greetings from the June 15th sailing! We are so excited about DCL having the excursions up, but so much to choose from - and some ports to figure out on our own! I popped over here to see what y'all might be planning!

You would be my hero if you could provide navigators when you get back. Probably a couple of others too.

Can experienced cruisers tell me why the excursions have to be Disney's. Just wondering. I have done six of them on my two cruises and I have never taken a Disney one. Partially because of cost, partially because they are always so late posting them.

We are back-to-backing so we won't be home before you all leave, but I'll ask the other folks to post Navigators as soon as they get back! We typically don't do "inaugural" sailings but with school schedules (band camp), etc., we had to sail early in the summer.

I was thinking about starting a thread on the main board for excursion planning for the Greece itinerary - I know it will only be of interest to our sailing and your sailing, but maybe other DISers have been to these ports, too, on other cruiselines and can offer ideas and suggestions. I've been reading some over at cruise critic but it can be intimidating!

I was not going to do a tour in Athens but I am starting to reassess. We want to do the National Archeological Museum and Acropolis and transit seems easy but there are lots of strikes in Athens. Starting to reassess.

We have a friend that visited Athens on a cruise a few years ago. She was ready to use transit system, but at the last minute, decided to grab a cab. She didn't get ripped off and said it was very easy.

I was wondering about the hop on hop off bus?
The blue line picks up at port. You can transfer to red line. Anyone else thought about this option?

Someone said that you wanted Navigators from our cruise in June. I will try to post them for you daily from the boat. If not the day we get back to the states.
