Great day on the HOHO, canīt wait to board tomorrow. Sitting at the Apple store at the West end of Las Ramblas charging our phones on their computers, lol. Didnīt want to bring an adapter (buy one) for a day and a half so we just were hoping to run in to somewhere that had a USB plug in to charge the 'ol iPhones. Hope everyone had a great day in Barcelona!

Hi Cindy~ thanks for all the great updates from both of your trips! What tour guide did you use in Dubrovnik?
Thanks,
Patti

Hello! I wasn't on your cruise, but it just so happened that I was in Venice, Italy the same day your cruise was. I was there with a group of 230 high school band and choir students (if you saw a sea of maroon polo shirts, that was us!). You were just being tugged in as we were on the ferry to Venice and I snapped a few pictures. Maybe you can zoom in and find yourself on deck.

You're welcome. I was way too excited when I saw the Magic coming in, lol! We had a great European tour of our own, but I'm not gonna lie, I was jealous of everyone onboard that ship. I would have traded places in a second if I could, haha!

Hope everyone had a great time!

Thanks for the photos!!!

(This is the first port in 15 years of Disnsy Cruising that I have been aware of the ship being towed. I wonder if it was an attempt to not disrupt the bottom or sides of the canals with the thrusters!)

Hi,

Who did in Rome the "guided visit of the vatican museums + 4 hours on your own"?

I have the following questions :

When did you leave Civitavecchia ?

When/where did you arrive in Rome ?

Did you see Shutters somewhere in Rome ?

Where were you supposed to show up for the guided visit ?

When were you back in civitavecchia ?

We arrived in Rome at approx 9:45

Did you see Shutters somewhere in Rome ?
We did not but I know they were there as I saw pics displayed at Shutters during the course of the cruise

Where were you supposed to show up for the guided visit ?
My group had to be back at Vatican Square @ 1:45. The Disney tour of the Vatican/Sistine chapel was slated for 2pm. It seemed like the entire ship was there on line. They opened the doors at 2:30 and each group proceeded in slowly! There were A LOT of groups.

When were you back in civitavecchia ?
Approx 4:45

Thanks for the FE gifts!

Thanks to all who participated in the Fish Extender exchange - what fun to find such sweet and thoughtful and fun trinkets and gifts in our fish extender!

There were two that were particularly useful for us and I don't know who they were from but wanted to say a special thanks. The first one is the one that had the coin purse with the dollar / penny - I know there must be some significant meaning to it but don't know what it was and wondered if someone could explain - and we used the coin purse for our Euro coins (but kept the dollar / penny in, too). It made it easier for me to keep up with all those coins!

The other was the hand soap that was in the travel kit - I had never seen that before - it's little sheets of soap that when you add water, you can wash with it. I put it right into my daybag and the next day needed it! I went to Bracciano and Wine Tasting tour, and the public WC in Bracciano, while it had plenty of tp, there was no soap. So I was able to use it then - and the other ladies on our tour were glad I had it because I shared it with them!

And how fun to come home and have so many things I can use at the office - notepads, pens and pencils, and magnets for my filing cabinet to remind me of the fun we had meeting each of you.

Cindy, glad the coin purse was useful. My 10 yr old DD is into origami and made the origami heart from dollar bill. We thought it would be neat to include something she makes in the FE gifts. She was so excited every time we receive a gift in our FE and asked to deliver the gifts all by herself.
