Hi all -

Just a note to all of you, if you wish to join our Facebook group. Please PM either myself or kmitchel for us to approve you. There is an outstanding request from someone, that I don't know and it won't be approved until one of us receives a PM.

Thanks!

Lori

I took the liberty to create a google-docs spreadsheet to start collecting the information we'll want as a group for fish extenders, meet-and-greets, etc. Feel free to add yourselves (as little or as much info as you want). I added this same segment to the first post in the thread so it will be easy to find.

Add yourself to the Who's Sailing spreadsheet here: Roll Call Form. You can also sign up for the Fish Extender through the same form. You should be able to see your entry (and make modifications later on if you need to) here.

I sat down at my computer to do some responsible research in order to cast my vote, and got distracted by an airfare search. I found a British Airways flight that leaves Barcelona after noon on disembarkation day, and is actually one of the shorter flights between there and home - I plan to keep a watch on this. Airfares have remained steady for months now, and I am losing faith that I will ever hit my price point. If I have to pay more, I want that flight.

Now to go do my research.

That sounds great.
Noty sure if that got lost in a pile of junk mail as I don't recall getting this.
I'll have to look for a copy

I don't remember our cabin number (we've changed it when we added our kids) but I figure I will add it later.

Yes, I was hoping for cheaper flights too, but when we saw one we could live with we just went for it
Good luck with the research

Ok, just putting this out there in case there is someone interested in joining us.

I have a private tour with Rome in Limo for the port of Rome (Civitavecchia) and am currently sharing with one other family for a total of 8 (4 adults and 4 teens). We have room for more in the minibus (I think it is 6 or 7 more) if anyone wants to join us

We have opted to skip the Vatican museum as the day we are there will be extra long lines as entrance is free. We might try getting into St Peter's Basilica (assuming the tour guide can get us there at a good time when the line will move fast).

We will be hitting as many sites as possible so probably not suited for families with small children.

Send me a pm if you are interested in the details

Yes I would imagine you would have other things to see the second time around (or third for some people).

So I was reading someone's Med trip report and they talked about getting a cameo while they were in Rome. The picture they posted was beautiful

So I started researching cameos to see the range of prices and how to tell what a good deal is....and now I'm more confused than before
Didn't realize there were so many different types, styles, etc.

Apparently Italy is a good place to get cameos as many are made there, but you can get taken if you don't know what to look for

Anyone here know anything about cameos

In 2007 we were on an excursion with DCL and they made a stop in Sorrento at a cameo "factory". I was nice and saw alot of cameos. We were told there are alot of Chinese knock offs so you should shop in a reputable established store front. As far as value vs. cost I can't help you there. My wife has her grandma's so we skipped purchasing. As everything check the internet.

Laurie - that sounds like a great plan and we would so be considering this but we're going to explore the other areas from Civitavecchia on this itinerary so we can have a full day in Florence and a full day in Naples. We're going to hit Rome hard on the previous sailing. But I wondered if you could PM me the info you have for contacts with Rome in Limo.

I expect the shopping guide onboard will have some info about cameos, so while I would do some research ahead of time, I would also check with them. I have found their talks to be helpful in looking for authentic souvenirs vs knock-offs.

You should check out Orvieto. It is a walled Etruscan (sp?) city dating back before the founding of Rome,. A real time capsule walled city. Check it out on the web, it may peak your interest.
