My aunt and I were talking about this. She said that in Rick Steve's Mediterranean ports book he recommends taking the ship's bus into Rome but then doing Rome on one's own. I guess he feels that the ship's transportation is worth it for this port. Something to consider.

That's the tour I was referring to. But I'm a bit shocked at the price.

I found this company. You can actually search by cruise ship? Rome On Your Own - Only £30 PP. they also do 2 port and 3 port packages to suit. I am considering going with them. I would be interested to know if anyone else has chosen to go with a private tour company.

They always have a big stand at the Cruise Show we go to in London each year. They seem like a very popular company, but we've not used them as yet.

I hope there is as well. It would be great to meet up with you all on the 1st day. Our last 2 cruises had a meet in the promanade lounge around 3pm. Hopfully we can do that again!!

I know you are already doing the FE, and since I'll be on board early due to EBTA I would be happy to volunteer to set it up if no one else wants to......I can stake out a spot early...hehehe

That's exactly where I was thinking would be a good spot. Nice and open, easy to get to and kid friendly.....

The Promenade lounge is a good central place for people to find, sounds like a plan Beverly.

I'll PM ValBob and see if that can't be done - does anyone know what the DISBoards name of the person doing the website is? Doesn't look like there's been much of an update on their either.....
