The driver will wait with us until we have tickets. They said the same thing!

IF they don't go, we just stay with our driver until we are back to the ship.

Awesome - I'm glad they arranged that.

So here's a picture for you of the hydrofoil

So excited! Now that our flights are booked and hotel rooms paid for (save over $200 by doing that), I am feeling SUPER excited!

I'm working on details for the ports where we are not doing a ship-sponsored excursion nor a private guide. For the ports that we stop at twice, we're doing one offical excursion and then one on our own sort of day. So for Villefranche, we're doing one of the Monaco excursions and then when we are there again, we'll just hang out in the town, maybe go to the beach. In La Spezia, we're going to Cinque Terre on our own because it will be a Monday the first time through so the excursion to Florence we want to do isn't available, but it is with this itinerary. We're hiring a driver and guide for our first stop in Valletta but will use that opportunity to plan an "on our own" day when we go back. For Civitavecchia, we're doing Rome in Limo the first time (on a Tuesday) and DH and I are doing the Bracciano Lake excursion on this itinerary and then planning to hang out in town and get some gelato or something the rest of the afternoon. We figured Rome on a Sunday - the LAST Sunday of the month - would be crazy. Here's something we noticed though - for this itinerary, our all aboard is an hour later than the previous one. We figure we can get some laundry done that day while the rest of you are in Rome

Only 49 days for us till we fly to Barcelona!

Anyone else feel like time is flying by way to fast and they need more time to prepare? Cause I sure do! So much to remember I'm afraid to forget something.

I'm with you! I'm sure it will be fine and they actually do have stuff in Europe if we forget something, right?!? That's what I keep telling myself anyway.

Here's a link to Taxi info for Naples in case anyone needed it. Look for the ordinary urban tariff pdf.

We are thinking that we'll cab to the pizza place after our excursion. Here's what the pizza place said to do:

Take a taxi and let them lead to VIA CASANOVA n.109 near PORTA CAPUANA. With the taxi arrived in less than 15 minutes (3.3 km away).

This is the pizza place we're planning to go to.

Thank you so much for posting this! This will help us figure out how to get to the National Museum in Naples and then hopefully on to delicious pizza.

We are booked on the Pompeii, Sorento and Capri for Families excursion. This trip is all about sampling for us. We will come back on our own some day and do a more indepth coverage of things that really interest us.

That's exactly how we express it when talking to people about cruising - it's a way to see a lot of places and figure out if there are places we would like to go back and explore more via a land-based trip. I tell people that all the time when they are thinking about cruising - it's a sampler platter.

Hey, Anyone out there interested in sharing a private tour for Rome ?
We have a minibus and guide booked with Rome and Limo with Thumpery and her family and there is room for another family if anyone is interested.

We are planning on these sites:

Pantheon
Colliseum
Circus Maximus
Trevi Fountain
Roman Forum & Palantine Hill
Church of Bones
St. Peter Basillica (depending on wait time)
Pasta/pizza lunch, gelato, and souvenir shopping

And saving the Vatican/Sistine Chapel for our next trip...

Between the two families so far we have 4 kids ranging in age from 15-20.
Anyone interested send me a pm
Price depends on how many we get in our group so potential for saving money is very good

You guys will have a great time, and honestly if we weren't going to Rome the previous week, we'd jump at this. If you can't get to St. Peter Basillica, try to get to Basillica San Clemente. It's open from noon to 6 PM. Here's a link to their brochure. Our friends were there in February and said it's worth going to look at.

Well, I'm back! Hopefully for good this time. The last couple of months have been a little rough. My parents moved down here to be close to someone in the family as they were in poor health and in the time they were here their health has gotten much worse. Took my sister coming to visit the folks for me to realize that there was no way for me to do everything that they needed. Took until now to find the best place for them and get that all finalized. Still have a dining room and storage unit full of "important" stuff to figure out what to do with, but I think that there is a light at the end of the tunnel. Unfortunately, the tunnel is still littered with all the things that I haven't gotten done because they didn't make the triage list, but I feel hopeful.

So now I am scrambling to get things together for the trip. I was putting together a spreadsheet for clothing and I realized that I don't have when the formal/semi formal nights are. Does anyone know when they are?

Spent all morning trying on clothes to see what I have that will work, now I have to slot that into the spreadsheet and see what I still need while I have time to get something!

Has anyone gotten luggage tags yet?
