Sniffle. Home just isn't as magical... I mean, last night at dinner, no one offered me a choice of desserts, and I certainly wasn't "forced" to have two of them because I couldn't make up my mind... OH THE INHUMANITY!!!

Was truly a pleasure meeting many of you - sad I didn't get to meet everyone. Next cruise, right?? (I think this is the start of another expensive addiction...)

Made it home late Friday night. Worst part was clearing customs in Los Angeles! Ahh, home sweet home. It was great meeting all of you and a special thanks to Jeff/Monstro for working the website. We truly feel like we've made some new friends for life with the bunch of you (sorry Dan, Eillen and Abigail, you're stuck with the Ashes now!).

It was a great trip. When do we start the thread for the Eastern Med trip in 2013? (fingers crossed).

Welcome home everyone and thanks for making a memorable trip for our family!

Paul, Wendy and Peyton

I was wondering if anyone had any positive or negative comments on tours booked on your own. I was to chicken to do that in an area I was totally unfamiliar with, but group tours just are too large. I'm looking for input for next time.

I almost feel like doing the same cruise again and doing our own thing would be fun and different.

Hope you are all settling into life in the real world. Jet lag and all.

We miss everyone we met on board. We had such a nice time.

Great time!

corbett744: We did a private tour of Rome and it was fantastic! We saw so much more than any of the tours and did them at our own pace. Because we we were in an SUV, we could duck around any traffic problems that the busses could never use.

The only problem with a private tour is that the ship will not wait for you if you are late returning to the dock.

It was wonderful meeting you all! I hope you had as good of a time as we did! Sooooooo sorry it's all over

Back from a Magical adventure....

We got back on Saturday after a few extra days in Barcelona.

Great to meet a lot of you. The kids made a lot of new friends too. Emails are going out daily now.

To the op that asked: We did private tours in Rome and in Florence. I wouldn't hesitate to do them again. We had a driver and a guide so we got dropped a lot then picked up at a designated location. We didn't have to hurry to stay on a schedule except to just get back to the ship on time.

Truly miss not being on the Magic right now though since we have probably done our last Disney cruise.

See ya'll down the road..
