I'm having so much fun trying to find safe places to eat while off the ship. I have a severe reaction to gluten, and a couple other things as well. Does anyone else have dietary issues? And have you found a safe place to eat in our Monaco/France stop? I found multiple places in Rome and a couple in CT and I believe I can navigate around it in Greece. On our other tours I can just go back to the ship.

Again, this is for families who want to DIY in VF and CT and feel more comfortable traveling in groups.

Heck, it's always fun to have fun families traveling together.
  • taking pictures of each other's families
  • sharing a nice lunch together
  • Children swimming together and sharing stories about their home town
  • having a gelato eating contest.
  • Just to name a few...
Abayaflowers - thanks for this - we will definitely want to get together with those interested in doing CT on their own. I'm seriously looking forward to this port. We have some friends who di it in 2007 and I fell in love with their photos and they regaled us with tales of how charming the area is. And yay for having people you trust to take pictures of each other's families - we try to get our annual family photo made on vacation, usually as a snapshot from somewhere interesting.

That does sound like a challenge. Are you doing Monaco on your own or as part of a tour? You may want to check with the TripAdvisor Monaco forum and ask over there. This blog post describes finding places in Monaco with salads, etc., that you might find of interest.

We are part of an all day tour in Monaco. I will ask on the ship if I can't locate anything beforehand. Maybe I can have them make me a sack lunch before the tour. I'll go check out that other form to see if there is more info on Gfree in Monaco.


I am also doing CT on our own. Our train schedule is printed. We have a copy of the trail map. I found a couple Gfree friendly restaurants and the names of good gelato shops. Looking forward to a leisurely day in the Cinque Terre.

Have you tried posting something on TripAdvisor. Great! advice from well-traveled people in the designated areas.

You have to go to the travel forum > click Europe > country > then the town.

You can post your questions there.

Hope this helps.

Safe travels to everyone!

Remember... passports... ID... plane boarding tickets...cruise documents... debit/credit cards...cash...snacks for the plane...

I could go on, but totally excited.

Our family will be leaving on the 12th but will sign off on the disboards on the 11th. If there is wireless on our flight, I will post stuff.

We leave home on the 11th but fly out on the 12th. We will have wifi at the hotel on the 11th and don't check out til after noon, and then we have a mifi to use for the ATL airport until boarding, so I'm sure I'll be posting and reading here and on FB until we start meeting folks at the airport. Then maybe if they're willing, we'll do some photos in the airport

We have free wifi in the lobby at the Renaissance, and I have read that there is free wifi aboard the Bus Turistic (hopefully gonna rack up a lot of FourSquare points - LOL).

Is anyone else staying at the Hilton Diagonal?

It seems that so many of you all are at the Renaissance, but I wondered if there would be any other DIS'ers at our hotel.

Father's Day Cards

My dad and my brother both have birthdays while we're gone, so I was getting their cards and remembered it's also Father's Day while we are away. Thought I'd post that here in case it's slipped up on others who wanted to send their dad a card before leaving.

Also...it's a good idea (if you have a way to make copies at home) to make a copy of the first page of your passports, credit cards, DL just in case (God forbid) something is stolen or misplaced. I also photograph my luggage so that if lost (it did on our way home from our Medi cruise in 2007), I show them the photo with exact dimensions. It worked and I had my luggage within 24 hours.

Safe travels everyone! We leave from Dulles on the 12th (through Brussels) and will be staying at the Grand Marina in case other are staying there...

See ya real soon!
