Hi All!
We're not booked on this cruise but we are cruising a 7-nt Med in August. I have a huge favor to ask.
I see that your final payment due date is next week. Once your cruise opens up online excursion booking, can you look something up for me? I'm trying to decide between 2 excursions in Villefranche and would love to know the actual times that these excursions are offered. So once you're done booking all of your own stuff & when you have time, could you list the choices of meeting times of these excursions?:

Highlights of Monaco and Top Car Museum $62 (ages 10 and up) 4 to 4.5 Hours

Nice and Monaco $169 (ages 10 and up) 8 to 8.5 hours


Our tours of Italy will be long days so I'm not sure I want another 8 hr day in Villefranche. Also a huge difference in price for a family of 4.
I realize the time offerings may be different between June & August cruises but this will help settle my mind. This cruise is taking over my brain and it's so hard to think of anything else. Our final payment is due April 19 which just seems so far away!

Thanks in advance for your help!!

Hi,

I am sure someone will get back to you with this information, there a lot of helpful people on the forum.

I have been to Nice twice and found their public transport to be excellent so I won't be going on any of the organised tours. You can hop on a lovely air conditioned bus from the bus station in Nice for only a few euros return ticket which will take you along the coast to Monaco and Monte Carlo. The first stop is the Principality of Monaco which you can easily walk around on your own and also visit the Cathedral where Princess Grace is buried. Then time the bus for your next journey to Monte Carlo, it's as easy as that!

Hi, it is a Welsh dish, they also sell it in supermarkets on the deli counters here in Wales. I remember it mostly from my Nan, but may give it a go again. It looks like spinach a little when cooked.

I just copied this from wiki for you.

Laverbread (Welsh: bara lafwr or bara lawr) is a traditional Welsh delicacy made from laver. To make laverbread, the seaweed is boiled for several hours, then minced or pureed. The gelatinous paste that results can then be sold as it is, or rolled in oatmeal; it is generally coated with oatmeal prior to frying.

Laverbread is traditionally eaten fried with bacon and cockles for breakfast. It can also be used to make a sauce to accompany lamb, crab, monkfish, etc., and to make laver soup (Welsh: cawl lafwr). Richard Burton has been attributed as describing laverbread as "Welshman's caviar".

Laver is often associated with Penclawdd and its cockles, being used traditionally in the Welsh diet and is still eaten widely across Wales in the form of laverbread. In addition to Wales, laverbread is eaten across the Bristol Channel in North Devon, especially around the Exmoor coast around Lynmouth, Combe Martin and Ilfracombe. In North Devon it is generally not cooked with oatmeal and it is simply referred to as 'Laver' (lay-ver).

Laver is highly nutritious because of its high proportions of protein, iron, and especially iodine. It also contains high levels of vitamins B2, A, D and C.

Hi, this will be my first Disney cruise so I will not get access to that info for some time. I am sure one of the other guys who get early access will be able to inform you soon enough.

Oh wait! Another thing I'd like to know is if DCL offers Onboard Check In for those flying a participating airline from BCN. I didn't think they'd offer it for the Alaskan cruise but they did. It's my favorite free thing from DCL.

We're flying USAirways which is a participating airline. My doubt stems from the fact that it's an international flight. I'm still hopeful.

I spoke to a lovely lady at dcl the other day and although not relevant to me we got off talking and she said they wouldn't be doing this. It could change or be wrong I just wouldn't get your hopes up.

I'm sure we'd all be the same if we weren't on the first sailing

So has anyone got any tips for Barcelona?? I know a few have done it before, is there anything that's must see? We won't be doing our usual high powered tourist thing just a let's see what we can manage at a leisurely pace
