Great! We are traveling with two other families whose boys will be 16, 13, 13, 11, and 11. Not a girl around except for the moms!

We booked our tour with Rome in Limo this morning. We've requested that we return by 4:30 PM to the port even though we are scheduled to depart at 6:30 PM so that we'll have a buffer. These are the specific sites we've included as places we would like to see during our tour if time permits.

The Forum
Circus Maximus
Spanish Steps
Palatine Hill
Mamertine Prison
Capitoline Hill
Victor Emmanuel monument to be able to go to the top for the view of the city.



I also booked our pre-flight hotel in ATL, so that's one more thing off my list!

I am anxiously awaiting the Greece and Turkey excursions too! I have an idea of what we'd like to see in Athens and Ephesus and I've sort of put on hold researching doing it on our own until I see what Disney offers (and at what price!)

I did notice that Barcelona is now listed as a port adventure location but as of last night, no excursions are listed. I was hoping this was a sign they are updating the port adventures....

Plot thickens ... Barcelona is now off the Port Adventure listing
PS ... definitely want to go to Delos while in Mykonos ... want to see the birthplace of Artemis and Apollo!

What scares you about that? Do you think they are changing the starting port? Maybe just redoing the adventures ....... I hope!

Just saw this on dcl's site:


Please be aware that on June 17, 2013 (Disney Magic 12 Night Greek Isles Cruise), saint patron of Pisa is celebrated. Religious sites such as the Cathedral and Baptistery may be closed for temporary events. The Piazza and the Leaning Tower of Pisa will be available.

Hmmmm.....

The museums in Florence are closed that day because it's Monday and I believe they are always closed on Monday.

I just checked my reservation 176 days until we sail!! Since concier/platimum can book shore excursions in 56 days I would hope that the excursions for Turkey and Greece will be up on the site soon!
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all of our shipmates from the Colonial Capital of Virginia. Sue
