Hi 7-night Med cruisers

I just logged in and for my 7-nighter, Pirate night is listed as Night 6, from 9:45 p.m to 10:30 p.m.

Dunno if this helps anybody planning, but now I'm super excited My booking window is coming up soon so that will be fun.

Here's a copy & paste:

Day 6
Thu, Jun 6
Naples (Pompeii), Italy
09:45 pm
(until 10:30 pm)

Thanks for sharing! I hope we can stay up that late after 4 consecutive long days of touring. At least we can sleep in the next day.

I hear ya! I'm so looking forward to that sea day we're getting. During planning last year we thought it'd be a good idea to extend our stay by going to Paris...but I'm gonna be SO TIRED when we get off that cruise. Not that I'm complaining or anything

That sounds nice. Do it now while you're young. By the time your baby's old enough to drive, it even sounds exhausting.

We are booked for June 2014 and like many of you, we plan on arriving in Barcelona early (2 nights) and then afterward to Paris for 3/4 nights. There is 6 of us. Any suggestions on where to stay in Barcelona and Pairs? Thanks for all the great ideas regarding the trip already! This is one that needs to be well planned!

We are using DCL hotel pre-cruise mostly for convenience and a bit of a splurge. There are a couple of threads about Barcelona hotels that once the search is working again might help, but I think the best thing for the 2014ers is to watch for reports as the 2013ers come back. In fact, once it's time for the 2013 season to begin, perhaps someone will start a review thread for us to put our hotel and excursion reviews in one place.

WOW. The cruisers on my 6/1 Med cruise are no joke. It's probably b/c there are alot of Gold & Plats doing back to back w/the EBTA.

I logged on "late" at 12:23 a.m. EST. Checked Palo Brunch, and Palo Dinner. Availability looked good. I'm Silver, btw (will be Gold after this cruise).

For our 9 people, I booked our DCL excursions first since we have nothing else planned. Pretty important, got what we wanted.

Then I booked our DCL excursions for ports which we may or may not need it. Offerings for Rome don't look that good.

Returned to Palo Brunch & Dinners---hardly anything left, can't get a table of 4 for anything. Alright, that's fine. We'll eat 2x2.

No more good Swedish spa appts or manicures. Only things left are on Port days....

OK....

Returned to Palo & Brunch ressies at 2:21 a.m EST, and there is absolutely no Palo Brunch left at all. None. I know things will open up but this is ridiculous

It's like BLACK FRIDAY but for DCL ressies. My goodness.

LOL I guess the rest of us will have to make do with the scraps.

I am holding tight for Rome as I think the new Pope will bring many visitors into the city especially on a Wednesday (when the pope comes out to wave).

I didn't plan on going into the Sistine chapel with my boys, but will may give it a miss completely depending on how popular the Vatican City is when we are there.

Don't forget they don't release everything to book on-line so you may get what you want on board if you head straight to the Palo reservation area

I'm there with ya

I don't want anything so it's all good just to do kids club and pat.

We're bypassing Vatican City all together I will look at it a smile from the other side of the Tiber and that suits me just fine this time around.

Makes me feel better about staying up past midnight to book Palo. We wanted brunch the second sea day and had no problem getting a seating for 2.

Not doing DCL excursions or spa so....that was it. Didn't do check in will have to do that later.

I plan on doing most ports on my own so I can go at a nice easy pace for the kids, also I have troubled knees and may need to rest. I will be doing the Colosseum for sure and the forum. Hope to do the Trevi and steps, but I am just trying to be reasonable with my day and not try and do too much!!!
