I believe it was:
Discovering Florence
Jumping Back into Eternal Rome
The Best of Ephesus
Athens Acropolis and Sightseeing

Jen, we just booked our excursions tonight and couldn't get Jumping Back to Eternal Rome But they may open up some spots for each group. i suggest you try to reserve that one first. my husband did Rome first and didn't get it so we are doing Pantheon, Squares and Fountains-A walk in REnaissance Rome.

We also got:
Monaco, Monte Carlo & Eze
Explore Lucca and Pisa
Athens Sightseeing, Acropolis and New Acropolis Museum with Lunch
Ephesus, Didyma & Miletus with Lunch

We are very happy! Now it's time to concentrate on Fish Extender gifties

see ya, marianne

Or just if there is still availability?

The excursions we are interested in are:
-Jumping back to eternal Rome
-Ephesus and Sirince Village (all ages one)
-Blue Grottos and Fishing Village

I am wondering if I should figure out some 2nd or even 3rd choice excursions for those ports so even if our first choices are booked, we can grab a different one for now and then keep checking for availability.....

thanks in advance for your advice!

Jumping Back to Eternal Rome was gone by 12:02. It was there and then - poof - gone when system confirmed availability. The other two you wanted are still available.

We are on the same tours for Villefranche, Athens, and Ephesus.

I would keep checking back if you really want jumping back to eternal Rome. People will change their plans as it gets closer or they decide to do things privately.

I booked our excursions for Delos.

I heard that I could purchase a ticket much less expensive by taking one of the ferries to Delos.

I also couldn't get Palos dinner reservations for sea days.

I will try to switch it while I am on board.

So, I booked the dinner when we get back from Ephesus.

But my husband decided to DIY with a tour company recommended by Tripadvisor.

They will pick us up from the ship.

So, we will DIY all the excursions.

We are on a tight budget.

Jumping Back into Eternal Room is available now for at least 4 people. I just checked it.

Well we got all that we wanted. The Eternal Rome was out, so we opted to do that one on our own. My wife has been to Rome many time for work, so she knows her way around. We decide that this would save us some money. Can't wait.

Got a question about Rome. We did not sign up for a tour going to do our own thing. What is the best way to get to the City Center from the Port? Does anyone have any experience with Fast Track Express Train to Rome?

What company are you using for Ephesus? We are planning to do Ephesus with a private company and haven't decided which one.

We're looking at this one http://www.smartcruisetours.com/inde...sions-by-train There are people on other cruise forums who have used it and it appears like a good option.

We're using Magical Steps Travel. Decent price, quick email response, good reviews on Trip Advisor.
