Just look for the grandmother with an 11yo boy that look like pack mules with our backpacks!

Hi Res Graphic

Sorry for a public post that should be a PM, but I do not have PM privileges yet.

For Cindy or Jan, do you have the place-names-in-ears graphic in higher resolution? I would like to use it for T Shirts and I am afraid when I blow it up it might get fuzzy. Many Thanks! Bob

So sorry about your Mom, Sandie!

I just spent a week in the hospital with my Mom.

I'm banking that all the work I've done for this cruise in the past year pays off for losing a week right before the cruise. Today is packing and I know that I will feel much better when that is done.

I feel like I'm ready to leave now!

Happy Father's Day to all our cruising fathers!

Cindy is already in Barcelona as she is also sailing on the Med cruise preceding ours.
But Jan is still around and on the facebook page.
That is where most of our chit chat and planning are at this point. The first post of this thread has a link to send a message to join the facebook page (it's a private group). But that could take a while so in the mean time I'll leave a message for Jan there for you

Welcome Aboard

Sorry for no participation lately. Mom fell and broke her hip and has been a real handful lately!

Still have some planning to do for the last couple of ports.

I have so much difficulty packing light. Need to pull out the non clothing items and get them all together. I usually way overpack in that area, but when I don't take that duct tape is when I need it!
Sorry to hear about your Mom
Hope she is feeling better soon

This week is our packing and buying last minute essentials

Been to a number of the ports in other ways.

But it is our first time in Rome. Does anyone still have space in a group for four? We are really only interested in the ancient sights, not the Vatican.

We are flying overnight PHL-BCN direct on US Air arriving the morning of the 27th. I know, tight. We will go straight to the port unless someone has a better idea for me. Thanks!
We filled up our Rome tour just a couple weeks ago.
We're using Rome in Limo as so many other cruisers have used them with good results.
They do have private tours for a group of 4 that cost maybe a little more than a DCL excursion but you get the car to yourself.
http://www.romeinlimo.com/rome-civit...highlights.htm

So close to the sail date that you shouldn't book this unless you are sure you will use them.
I can point you to some trip reports of people who used this company later if you are interested.
