Has anyone cruised DCL in the Med before? I'm wondering how much time we should allow for tendered ports?
The all ashore time for LaSpezia is 7:45am but we won't be on a DCL excursion. Maybe I should change our driver pick up time from 8:00 to 8:30
or even 9am?

It's a 9 hour tour and we'd like to be back in time for early dinner though we could make this our Palo night or eat in Topsiders.

For any tendered port, the DCL guests are generally taken ashore first, so it's wise to allow at least 30 mins for them. If you wait by the exit, you can follow the last group out normally.

We are not doing any DCL excursions. But we have both traveled a lot and are not being overly ambitious in the schedule

We're not completely on our own. We're doing a private tour with Rome in Limo. I have asked them several times over the past few months in conversation if anyone has ever missed the ship & they said no. They'll be there at the dock holding a sign with our name on it then drop us off there too. They get awesome reviews on tripadvisor.com. Not even one little petty negative comment so I trust that they'll take care of us just fine.

Besides DCL tours being cost prohibitive for my family of 4, my parents are also cruising with us & have some mobility issues. A large group can only move along as fast as the slowest one in the group. I don't want my parents to be stressed the whole time trying to keep up. With a private tour, we can go at a slower pace. They can enjoy the tours and I won't spend $4000 in excursions. Eveyone wins!

Google it and it will come up. Super helpful. Hope you guys have a great time on your cruise!
Thanks! Exactly the kind of thing I'm looking for!

I will! We're from Waco... and we have the same avatar.... your daughter wouldn't happen to be Chinese also? Ours are adopted from China, so they really like Mulan.

Curious to know---what time is your scheduled return time for Rome? We're using a different company and I'm not super comfortable with our return time, but my ambitious "want to see it all" personality keeps telling me it will be fine. Worse comes to worse we'll train it to Naples but still....

We have asked Rome in Limo to have us back to port two hours before all aboard time which we will confirm that morning. Our logic is that if we leave Rome in time to be back two hours ahead, if we have vehicle trouble on the way back, there is time to get a replacement vehicle and have us on our way. Our kids are a little freaked out that we are going that far from port not on a DCL excursion - they are afraid we will be left behind, so we are sacrificing some time in port for their peace of mind - and to help them learn that it's ok to do things on our own as long as we have careful planning. So we figure 90 minutes drive from Rome to Civitavecchia (which I'm not sure is right - it might be closer to 75??) and we'll have our driver plan our day so we're on the port side of the city towards the end of the day.
