Same for us, but we would be up for a scheduled "event" some time, some where ... ideas? suggestions? Sea Days?

Which reminds me - do any of you go to the Trivia games they have on the ship? We've been to a few - some folks are "hard core" about it, but generally most of the other guests we've encountered are fun and easy going. The boys have enjoyed the family ones like the Pirate trivia and the "name that tune" ones that are sometimes done in the Promenade, and at times have gone with me to the ones that are adults in the mornings (because we didn't realize it was only adults but it wasn't busy so the CM said they could stay).

We like to go to Mickey Mania and such in Studio Sea, too.

The Cutest and Great Explanation of the Vatican City

So, I love watching www.viralviralvideos.com after a long day of work. I ran across this cute and great explanation of the Vatican City. I tried to explain it to my DDs (and I am Catholic hah!) and they were confused. But now I will just show this to them:

Looking forward to the Cruise!

I am going to look for the Disney store in Barcelona.

You'll find my daughter and I at most of the trivia events Cindy ... not hard core, but competitive.

Mail your postcard or letter from the Vatican City

I found this information online. This is so neat! I have to try it. I will probably take an hour writing postcards.

Many visitors to Rome take the opportunity to mail postcards and letters back home from another country, no, not Italy ó Vatican City! The Vatican has had its own post office and stamps since 1929. More items are mailed from the Vatican City postal code (00120) per inhabitant than from any other postal code in the world. The Universal Postal Union has called the Vatican, ďone of the best postal systems in the world.Ē

In fact, the Italian postal system has such reputation for slow service that I know Romans who will only use the Vaticanís postal system when mailing things abroad. Why? Well, your mail will get where itís going faster than if you mailed it from a regular Rome post office and spent the same amount. Plus, isnít it neat to have Vatican City stamps on your postcards? (Remember, you canít use Italian stamps here!)

There are several outposts of the Vatican Post Office including one near the museum and one of the left side of St. Peterís Square as you are facing St. Peterís Basilica. Another advantage of visiting the post office ó their stamps are truly beautiful and the perfect souvenir to bring back home for any stamp lover.

We don't drink alcohol either. We do go to some of the trivia games though we are not hard core at all.

Could the following parties please clarify their FE numbers?

pawhitejr: The numbers columns show 2 adults and 0 children, but there appear to be 3 children listed in the names columns in addition to the 2 adults. Could you clarify your total for the FE please (2, 5, other?)?

finkerbell: There are 2 listings on the spreadsheet under the "finkerbell" disname, and although the cabins are different, the names appear the same. Cabin 7563 shows 3 adults, and Cabin 7043 shows 4 adults (3 with the same names as 7563 plus one additional name). Could you clarify the actual number of travelers (3, 4, 7, other?) and cabin(s) for the FE please?

MEB51: The numbers columns show 3 adults and 0 children, but there appear to be 5 total people listed in the names columns. Could you clarify your total for the FE please (3, 5, other?)?

Kayancam: The numbers columns show 2 adults and 5 children, but there appear to be only 6 total people listed (1 and 5) in the names columns. Maybe there just wasn't enough room. Could you clarify your total for the FE please (6, 7, other?)?

justthat: The numbers columns show 2 adults and 4 children, but there appear to be only 5 total people listed (2 and 3) in the names columns. Maybe there just wasn't enough room. Could you clarify your total for the FE please (5, 6, other?)?

htmlkid: The numbers columns show 2 adults and 1 child, but there is no 3rd traveller listed in the names column. We don't need specific names, but could you please clarify how many travellers for the FE (2, 3, other?)?

Thank you so much!

I noticed these as well, can the people listed please verify the information so that we have correct numbers for the FE

I can clarify mine (MEB51). Sorry for the confusion. There are five of us who are traveling in two cabins. We have 3 of us in one cabin and 2 in the other. Marie

The museum made an exception for the group on the 15th of June to include children from 4 to 13 years old.

I recommend emailing them ahead of time prior to your visit to see if they allow your child to join a class after the cruise.
