Check with your airline for delays. FAA says delays from Philly are averaging 2 hours and 20 minutes.

Hi there! We are on the 6/27 Med cruise, and I have been stalking your board looking for updates...this is one thing I have been looking for...how were the fountains?

Was it worth it? Did you see the Disney themed show? How crowded was it...safety??

Thanks so much!! Safe travels and have a GREAT time!

Fountains were good. We were with a tour group, watched the 9 and 9:30 show. The group did not stay for the Disney show. It was worth the time. This was a family event and we felt completely safe. We stood back about 50 yards, had an unobstructed view of the whole show. There was literally no one in front of us for the first 40 feet.

Disney has spoiled us and the fountains were kind of meh for me. We went for the Disney remix and it was still light out. Perhaps it looks better in the dark with lights. We could barely hear the music and then it abruptly stopped. Apparently 2 people decided to join the show by jumping into the fountain and it was a show stopper.

For anybody subbed to this thread to glean info for their cruise, here's tip 1 for La Spezia. If you're going to Luca and Pisa ( and probably Florence) sit on the right side of the bus. The sun seems to favour the left side for almost the entire trip. It was very hot today. We were all expiring from the heat.

We were not, but the following one to Venice will be charged 21% VAT for onboard purchases.

We are on the 7/13 sailing. I assume y'all weren't charged because of the ports that were non EU?
