I believe we were on the Baltic together. This will be our 7th DCL cruise.

Just booked our flights last night. Flying out of Dulles airport on 7/11 to Barcelona via a layover in London. After the cruise we are flying to Paris for 3 nights and then returning back to Dulles. Still deciding on a hotel in Barcelona for our 1 night pre cruise stay.

We looked through the excursions and have our wish list ready to book on 3/15. We are all really excited for this trip!

You can book on March 15? We have to wait until March 30 and we are GOLD. You must be platinum or concierge. Lucky you.

What excursions are you booking? I'm decided to, although I'm debating two in Turkey and two in France. I have back-ups too, just in case.

Sigh ... lucky both of you..... we are lowly Silver so our booking is even later!
I am looking at the Best of Ephesus, for Turkey. Anybody have any ideas for LaSpezia, we did Pisa last time, and I was sad to so much closed in Florence on the day we are there. I am thinking of Cinque Terre??

Yep, we can't book till the 30th either. There is only one tour I have my eye on right now. We will see how it goes. Booked a private tour for Turkey. Contemplating one for Athens, but seriously considering just going it alone. So many decisions and I haven't really started SERIOUSLY thinking about it. Time is getting short, but it seems so far away.

We can't book till April 15 ....I have a private tour booked on Turkey and would love to book one in Rome, not sure which one yet. The rest I think we are doing on our own.

I was doing my Mykonos research today. We are there on a Monday and according to Wikipedia Delos is closed on Mondays.

http://wikitravel.org/en/Mykonos

As for excursions we are Silver as well. Looks like very little in Disney excursions for me.

Did you think about doing Delos on your own? I just can't decide!

I am silver and the website says I can not check in or book excursions until the 15th of April. Too much risk to leave the major excursions until then. There is a couple of smaller ones I am going to wait for - Malta - Historical Treasure Hunt, my mom's boat trip to Cinque Terre, might still book Athens through Disney.

Rome and Ephesus are already done.

My kids also convinced me to change Villefrance.

We are going to go the Monaco aquarium and ride the tourist train. I get to go to the Prince's care museum as part of the deal. I want a picture with Nigel Mansell's Ferrari. Well actually I really want to sit in it and make car noises. Think I can bribe a guard?

Jimmy Jack - did you know there was a company in Monaco that offers Ferrari Drives (as a passenger or driver). Maybe you could compromise with your kids and they'll let you go for a drive -- probably cheaper than the bribe...

Is all of this open on Bastille Day (the day we're in Villefranche)?
