Hi everyone,

I hate to say that we won't be joining you all on this cruise. We just got off the Dream and I switched our reservation to the Fantasy for the same timeframe. The $$$ and logistics to plan this cruise were just too overwhelming and my daughter is still fairly young (9 yo). Maybe we'll try again in a few years.

I hope everyone has a wonderful time and I will still be reading this thread and will be looking forward to trip reports.

Hope you have a fabulous cruise on the Fantasy. Shame you won't get to do the Med though, but maybe you will do it another time.

I love Disney so much - but two more days and saved $1000 - we are doing some time on land too so the saved money was nice. Figured as much as we will be sightseeing off the ship it didn't really matter that much anyway. Hope you all have a wonderful trip!

Enjoy your cruise, shame about Disney but as long as you have a fabulous cruise then that is all that counts.

When I priced other cruises I just couldn't find anything cheaper (for some reason). Maybe it is because I live in the UK??

Can I be cheeky and ask what cruise your are going on?

Sorry to hear some want be joining us after all, I hope you have a wonderful time on whichever cruise you end up

Congratulations on the baby news

Totally excited now we're in under a year just gt back from a lovely relaxing break to Ibiza am now thinking we may start our trip next year with a weeks beach break. Some of the uk flights have been released but I think they look really expensive compared to this year so will hang tight for a while.

Hope everyone's doing well, keep watching those tickers

I'm so excited that I can now say "we'll be doing a Med cruise in LESS than a year"!! Our flights don't come out yet for a while but we'll think about booking as soon as we can find a decent deal. There used to be great deals when you book roundtrip but now it's the same price whether you book both segments separate or together. So I think I might book the flights to Barcelona well before we book our flights back just to make sure that we get on the flight we'd like. I'm also just about to put down a deposit on our private tour in Naples. It's so exciting to be able to start booking things!

One year and counting

I am so excited about this trip. I can not wait. I have been waiting for the airfair to post, but nothing yet. The week before our cruise is over $1400. from NC to BCN. Wow, sure hope it goes down. 4 people will brake the bank with all the excursions.

I have read that Barcelona is not safe and we should be very careful when traveling there. Anyone been before???

Thank you for your comment but I'm no longer doing the work on the rollcall. I had spent a good bit of time on a rollcall and was surprised when Tracer00 announced she had taken it over and created a website. The website is very nice. I posted a link to the website and removed my rollcall link.

I went to Barcelona in May of 2011 on the Transatlantic Cruise with DCL. Barcelona is very crowded in the tourist areas and I constantly had a tight grip on my purse and kept my camera in my pocket when not in use. I did an excursion with DCL - kind of an overview tour of Barcelona. I felt like I was on my guard the entire time. I'm glad that I did the excursion with DCL because I definitely would not have felt safe out on my own

hi everyone still impatiently waiting for mid July when the flight companies tell me our dates should be released

So has anyone thought about which excursions/cities they're interested in? all of them is not an option

I am just thinking of having a relaxing stroll around Villefranche (see where we end up) and the Italian trio. I need to pretty much get in, do and see what we want and get out. I have just returned to work full-time and I am struggling with my knee. I have several operations on it and hoping I won't need my crutches, but it seems I may have to pack them after all!!!

Alls well though,I will just wait to see what excursions dcl offer before maybe booking a driver.

I certainly wasn't trying to take over the roll call. Your spreadsheet contained information that the website doesn't so I thought we could utilize both. I also couldn't access the spreadsheet from work or from my phone which is what I use most often so I thought that other people might have that issue as well and if you wanted any info on the go or while we're traveling that we could access it. Please feel free to post your spreadsheet link because I never intended to replace it.

I'm thinking the same for Villefranche, just take it easy and save ourselves for some of the other ports

Sorry to hear about your knee hopefully the year ahead will be kind to you

I need to do something to plan its driving me nuts! So I'm going to start researching ports and possibilities, I'm in hospital on Thursday so will have a couple of days off afterwards to do some homework

Just hoping the flights are reasonable

I'm super excited to start planning as well!! Believe it or not I think we have a pretty good idea of what we're doing at most of the ports. I think that Villefranche might be our low key port as well. My DD12 saw the movie Monte Carlo with Selena Gomez and now she's gung ho to go there even though I don't think it will take up the entire day. So we might just hit Monaco and Villefranche and back to the ship. La Spezia might be the only one where we'd end up doing a Disney excursion so we'll wait to see what they offer.

We are coming in one day prior to the cruise and I just looked online and the hotel that we'd like to use is taking reservations for our date already! I'm going to head out to book that right now!

Well although I'm not 12 I watched that movie and the whole time was thinking oooooh we could go there

I'm just trying to narrow down the choice of destinations then I want to figure out what we'd like to do there. For La Spezia I feel like we should see Pisa because it's iconic and all but I keep thinking we'd be going to look at a dodgy tower that's it lol So we'll likely go to Florence which just looks beautiful.

Naples I'm not sure yet, I studied Latin at school and keep thinking we should go see Pompeii/Vesuvius but then a drive along the Amalfi coast is tempting so indecisive!

Rome well say no more I want to do as much as I possibly can, this will be where I spend big

I actually saw Monte Carlo before we decided to go on this cruise so now I'm going to need to rent that again!

We also want to see Pisa but I don't feel like it would take that long to check that off of our list. So if Disney does an excursion that combines Pisa with another destination I'd be open to that. For Naples we've already found a private driver because we want to see Pompeii plus Sorrento & Positano. And we also want to do anything and everything there is to do in Rome (and eat a lot of gelato!)
