I was checking out some excursions for my family who are silver and thought you would like to know that the cooking in Tuscany is sold out you will not be receiving your phone call saying it is cancelled! Congrats.

Double Trouble - welcome!

Last night we booked:

Villefranche: Monaco, Monte Carlo, and Eze
Athens: Acropolis Sightseeing and Archaeological Museum with lunch
Ephesus: Ephesus, Didyma, and Miletus with Lunch
Malta: Malta by Private Vehicle - 4 hour van with driver and guide

We were not comfortable trying to do Athens and Ephesus on our own so those were the most important to us. For Malta, we'll be there a 2nd time so we thought we would do a private driver/guide for the first time and then our own thing the second time. The price is fair enough for an excursion by the time you divide it by four and get your "per person" cost for us, and easier than trying to find a private arrangement ourselves. For Villefranche, getting to Eze on our own just seemed to complicated so we decided since they are bundled with Monaco/Monte Carlo which we wanted to see, that would work, no worries.

I don't know about y'all, but I was really tired this morning! I think part of it is that I was using one of the boys' desktop computers and sitting in a dining room chair to use it - not comfortable!

We got our emailed confirmations and I had printed out our activities from DCL so I can show it to the boys and DH so they know what we're doing.

Cindy your comment reminded me that if you are linked to other reservations every time you book something and/or make changes those linked to you get a copy of their reservation. This happen to the other 3 staterooms in our group when we booked our shore excursions a couple of weeks ago. They got an email each time we confirmed a reservation. I guess i will call DCL next week to let them know so we dont get a bunch of e-mails when the Silver Group books.

Does anyone know if DCL is sending the spiral books anymore? I printed out the book from the site 54 pages and after page 19 it was one sentence per page 😱

I don't know. I don't remember receiving for our last Med Cruise Aug 2010. By the way, I experienced the same thing after 19 pages. I thought that it was my fault. Then, I tried printing again.

So, I decided to cut it short and leave those pages out.

I have been putting together a binder with tabs on what we plan to do and some research that I have accumulated from the disboards and cruisecritics along with information from my friends who have traveled in Greece and Turkey as recent as September 2012.

Very excited.

Jeff, go back a few posts and see the link reference in my post with the roll call and spreadsheet link. There is a link there for the Facebook group as well.

Cinque Terra was our second choice. Kirstyn likes aquariums .. so I though I would let her win that port, as I won most of the others

So the only DCL tour we are doing is Nice and Monaco - value package.

We have a private tour in Rome, Pisa and Lucca, Ephesus, Athens, Malta and Barcelona when we get back. We haven't figured out Mykonos yet, but have some ideas...we'll have to see you all on the ship because we'll be on all our own tours.
