I saw that too!! One of my fav shows. Venice is one of my favorite places and I don't see how you can't enjoy your time there. Karl manages to find something bad no matter where he goes. Of course I guess that's why the show is so entertaining.

Thanks for the link, MrsScooby. The churches in the pictures are all so beautiful. Looks like Venice will be another place where it will be hard to narrow down the choices!

BTW, on the blog he mentioned that Dubrovnik was switching to euros in July. As far as I can tell, Croatia may be joining the EU then, but it will take a couple of years to convert to euros.

On the TV show side, I have been checking my local PBS listings to see if I can find the new season of Rick Steves. His new shows include 3 on Rome, 2 on Florence, 2 on Venice and as a bonus one on London and 2 on Paris...

I set our DVR to capture all the shows, but so far none of the new ones have shown up... Oh, well....

I have been to Venice before, but am anxiously awaiting the excursions to come out.

I would like to go to the Murano Glass Factory. Anyone been there before?

It's a wonderful place to go. You can order any of the pieces in any color and they will make it and ship it to your home.

Hi,

My mom and dad are going on this cruise and she is trying to edit her information on the Roll Call, but she's not having any luck. Any tips or suggestions? I tried to edit it for her using the link in the first post, but the spreadsheet is not editable.

Also, she and my dad with love to link dining. Her and I linked with Diser's on our Hawaii cruise and she really enjoyed it. Any plans to do so on this cruise?

Thanks!

Krista

Yup, you're right about the currency...the latest I could find on google says to get some kunahttp://www.tripadvisor.co.uk/ShowTop..._Dalmatia.html
Gonna have to look for the Rick Steves' shows. Thanks for the headsup

Hi Krista,
Maybe send a private message to nzdisneymom for help with editing the info on the roll call.
My family is still trying to decide on early or late dining so can't link up until we settle that
Things are still a little slow on this thread, but hopefully picking up soon.
Have your parents joined the facebook page yet?
That seems to get a little more posting

Anyone interested in doing dinner in Venice on the first night?
Someone on the main boards recommended this place and I was thinking of calling for reservations...

Krista - the roll call spreadsheet itself should be editable by anyone - but it might be that you have to have a google docs account. If you want to PM me the info, I can go ahead and edit it for them.

Sounds great, I'll PM you, nzdisneymom and direct my mom to the FB page. Thank you to both of you for your help!

Ok, I think I finally found the right setting so everyone can self-edit anything that needs to change on their rollcall information on the spreadsheet. If someone wants to see if it's working, here's the info again:

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 think you should be able to edit it without having to have a google account. They don't make it easy.

Thanks for doing this
My kids make fun of me because I am spreadsheet deficient
The one type of software I don't need for my job, thankfully...

Being Human is on in a few minutes...
Anyone else watch the show??
My DH likes to make fun of it (a werewolf, vampire and ghost living together sounds like a bad joke), but I am enjoying it

So I also watch Grim, Once Upon a Time, Walking Dead, Game of Thrones, Big Bang Theory and How I Met Your Mother....

Thanks to DVR I even go out sometimes

Doing the paid in full dance!!! It's SOOO official now and the excitement has really kicked in! We are doing a few private excursions, and are ready to book the ones through Disney when the time allows. Wish Venice excursions would be listed! It was approximately 1 year ago when we booked this cruise. It's getting close!

Still haven't heard of anyone doing the pre-cruise 3-night Adventures by Disney in Barcelona.
