Thanks for sharing all the great information about Venice and the possible movie premieres!

And thanks to these boards I now have a new kind of anxiety dream. Used to be I had exam dreams, or more recently, race dreams, but now I have cruise anxiety dreams! I dreamed that we had to get up early for an excursion and I didn't know where we were supposed to eat breakfast and when I looked outside there was a big water spout! Thank goodness they will only last a few more months.

He says the money can earn interest in our account instead of Disney's

Joining in the fun!

Hi all!!!

Lots to catch up on:

Through some crazy back and forth, we booked on this cruise. Long story short, we had the mid July Greece cruise booked on opening day, bought a new house, lost my job, owned 2 homes while having no job, got great new job, in the meantime, canceled July cruise, rebooked 4 night Dream with family. On said 4 night Dream, kids convinced me to book Med cruise. House sold, June Greece Med cruise booked, son was convinced by GF to run marathon, so moved from June Greece to June Venice Cruise. Had to convince my DH, he said yes, we PIF'd and here we are!

Whew! So what do I need to know???

I recognize some names and will try very hard to catch up!

PS, I am Platinum, I have some general idea of what I want to book, so lots of studying in the next few hours...lol!

My heart skipped a beat when I clicked on your link because I thought I had ordered the wrong tickets.....but thankfully I didn't. We finally committed to our Malta plans and will be going to the Hypogeum at 10:00 and then we're doing a Segway tour in Dingli at 11:30. The Segway operator is arranging for us to be picked up at 11:00 and then another driver will be driving us back to Valletta at 2:30. We are using maltasegwaytours.com and doing the 2 1/2 hour Adventure.

Welcome back on board! I believe we cruised together before. We are mostly doing things on our own, except for a private driver in Rome which we are doing with Mrs. Scooby and Thumpery.

Helpful website

I found a website today that I wanted to share with everyone. It is called www.tomsportguides.com He has been to most of the ports on our cruise and has some very helpful maps and information. We were in Gibraltar several years ago so I looked at what he provided for this. His information was spot on. I hope you find it to be helpful.

My anxiety dreams usually involve not being able to find my family
or missing the ship...
or finding out our reservation was canceled ...
oh, don't get me started

Scared the heck out of me too
But we bought ours from Heritage Malta. Our tickets are for 2 pm.
They limit entrance to 10 people per hour so we bought ours as soon as we knew we wanted to go

Thanks for the warning Jan
Did this affect you ? Do you have tickets from Maltaticket ?
Hope they manage to fix this

Yes it does make sense
But we had rebooked this cruise when on the Fantasy last summer and didn't recall what our password was to access the Dreams account...so some tense moments until we found the email with our password
Glad we had the 2 day buffer and FTR Dreams got back to us fast and reminded us often so the drama was no fault of theirs.

Hi Nicole

Welcome fellow irate:

Glad you're with us
You have your work cut out for you as the excursion lists are long !!
Many of us are using Rome in Limo for private excursions and you can get a secret itineraries tour of the Doges Palace in Venice for less than 20 euro pp if you go direct to the Venice site (someone posted the link a couple pages back).
DCL will include transport to the Doges Palace in their tour but I think the whole thing is about $300 pp with them.

Me too. I paid it off tonight so my Platinum friends can include us when they book brunch tonight. I am officially paid in full. That is one price tag.
