Met with the surgeon today. Surgery is scheduled for the 6th and if all goes well i will go home that day. I'm looking forward to getting this done and over so that I can enjoy the holidays. Hope everyone is having a good week.

While recovering from surgery I looked through all of the stuff we brought back from the last med cruise. In 2011 we will be in the ports of call a little later than we were the last time. For places like Rome this will be great because the port is quite a distance from Rome. A lot of nights dining times were pushed back so that people on excursions could dine in the dining rooms. Again this was helpful when in Naples and Rome. All ports that are repeats are doable on their own but if it is like last time Disney really offered some amazing excursions. The only place we will most likely do on our own is Villefrance the train is extremely easy to use our favorite place was the midevil village called Eze. It was beautiful and had a lot to explore. In Barcelona the bus turistic is the easiest way to see everything you can buy one ticket to cover all three bus lines which are designated by a color. The three lines cover all the major tourist sites and even if you speak no Spanish which we don't they were very easy to use. There is also a chocolate factory in Barcelona not to be missed. Disney offered an excursion on sailing day but we went on our own. Tickets for the bus can be bought before hand or as you board the bus. I know it is early still but if y'all are like me it is never to early to start thinking and planning.

Thanks for the info! Interesting to know that Disney pushed back the dining times to accomodate people. Are there any excursions in particular that you really liked?

How are you feeling? I hope your recovery from your surgery is going well.

I'm feeling a lot better. Glad the surgery is done and over.

It was really good that Disney pushed back dining the days we were at Naples and Rome it was nice to be able to go back to the room and clean up before heading to diner.

Our favorite excursions were in Naples and in Villefrance. In Naples we went to Pompeii, Sorrento and Capri. There were 2 versions of the excursions one regular and one designed for families we did the one for families because in Capri you took a boat tour through the fragolina rocks which was really neat. If they offer those choices again we will do the other because it did something different in Capri. Both had lunch in Sorrento in a restaurant under 100 year old lemon trees. In Villefrance we did Monaco, Monte Carlo and Eze. Toured the palace and saw the changing of the guard in Monaco. In Monte Carlo we had lunch at the Cafe de Paris and then could go to the casino or shop. Eze is a midevil town on top of a mountin that was just amazing we had a short amount of time to explore and shop before the bus ride back to the port. The times in port while seem long really are not long enough to really see the place but they do give you a sense of what they are like especially if you get a good local guide.

Did you see on the main board that they mentioned that DCL is starting put up info about the shore excursions for some of the Med ports now? I don't know if it only applies to the 2010 cruises or 2011, but I checked Barcelona and it does list the chocolate museum you mentioned. I can't wait for them to put up all the excursions, and then plan obsessivley for the next year and a half, lol. There's also another big drama since DCL apparently has either suspended or cancelled the Med cruises from 7/30/11 onward and it's unknown why. I'm really surprised that they'd make changes at this point, but who knows.

I saw where they had done that to those later cruises. It will be interesting to see what they will end up doing. I figure most of the excursions for our cruise will be the same as the ones for this upcoming summer. The only thing that may change is if an excursion does not sale well or if there is not positive feed back it will be dropped.

Welcome IrishCowboy. Will you be sailing with us in 2011?

In case I don't get back on before happy Thanksgiving everyone!

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone too!!

I have to say I'm very curious about what's going on with the later cruises. I'm very excited about our Med cruise, but if they moved the TA back earlier into the summer it would be very tempting.

We would love to do a TA but it would have to be in July as that is the only time i can get off. If they offered a July cruise going to Venice we would probable switch since except for the three new ports we have already done this cruise before.

Excursions are up on DCl's website. A few are the same as the previous med cruise which is good because we actually wanted to do the Pompeii Sorrento and Capri excursion again. There are some really interesting ones one in Naples that includes a special lunch sounds like a lot of fun. Just have to wait and see what works and what doesn't and what they will change before our cruise. We do have the advantage of trip reports being done before we book excursions.

Is that a former Key Lime Pie-Rate I see there?! Hope you are doing well.

Sorry fellow cruisers, I haven't dropped off the face of the earth, just life got in the way of everything. I'm hoping that I won't have to cancel this cruise. It's far enough away though that for now I will just wait and see what happens with life "stuff" for now.
