Meet and Greet

Hi all,

I have confirmed with DCL Function requests that we will have one of the lounges reserved from 2:30pm to 3:30pm on embarkation day. The confirmed location will not be made until 30 days before the cruise; however, the time is confirmed. For those also on our group Facebook page, I've created an event as well.

Note that the mandatory drill is at 3:45pm by the way.

I was thinking of putting together something we could all have so during the cruise we can identify other disboard/facebook folks. If you think it is a good idea, would you prefer a plastic bracelet band, a label for the lanyard holders, or something else?

best wishes,
Randi

Just voted on Facebook. I like the bracelet idea and a label, so I voted for both- but my top choice is definitely bracelets if we can only do one. We did them on my PC cruise in 2011 in the lime green DIS color and it was so fun to recognize everyone wearing them.

On our last cruise, someone made buttons for the Dis group and we love, love, loved them! Made it SO easy to recognize fellow disers and start a conversation! The buttons were nice because you could pin them to your shirt or lanyard or camera bag, whatever. Honestly, I don't like wearing bracelets of any kind but won't refuse to if that's what everyone decides on.

BTW, my husband and I decided we are going to participate in the FE. I added myself to the chart tonight! We were concerned about luggage space & weight as well as not having time to make the FE we want to, but we decided we'd miss it too much if we didn't participate!

So excited we booked our excursions Makes it seem more real now!

Villefranche: Nice and Monaco
La Spezia: Florence and Pisa
Civitavecchia: Vatican City, the Coliseum and Catacombs
Athens: Athens Sightseeing, Acropolis, New Acropolis Museum with Lunch
Kusadasi: Ephesus, Didyma and Miletus with Lunch
Mykonos: Delos Island
Valletta: Gozo Experience

We were able to go back in today and change our Athens and Mykonos excursions to ones that had previously been sold out when we booked. If you didn't get your first choice I would recommend checking again because they do free up sometimes. We're hoping to get to change our Rome tour as well.

Med port guides for another planning resource

Hi everyone,

Some of you may have already seen this, but someone on the main Dis boards recommended these guides called "Toms Port Guides" as another resource to plan out what to do at each port (they are free and downloadable online guides). If your ports are already fully planned (like ours are), these are also useful to just familiarize yourself with the port so you know more of what to expect when we arrive. I looked it up, and there is some really useful information (and photos & detailed maps to give more of an idea of what the ports/areas will look like, etc).

He has port guides to lots of ports in the world, so to make it easier, I copied and pasted the links to only the ports we'll be at (to save you the time sifting through all of the ports in his guide to find ours). The only port he does not have is Malta.

This is the main website (in case you are interested where all these guides are located, etc)
http://www.tomsportguides.com/


These are all of our ports (obviously, not listed in the itinerary order):

Rome (Civitavecchia):
http://www.tomsportguides.com/Rome_C...08-07-2012.pdf

Le Spezia
(note: this includes both Le Spezia and Livorno (the other port). LeSpezia (and Cinque Terre) is towards the end of the document, so you have to scroll down to in the doc find Le Spezia):
http://www.tomsportguides.com/Livorno-04-20-2011.pdf

Mykonos
http://www.tomsportguides.com/Mykonos-08-01-2011.pdf

Athens
http://www.tomsportguides.com/Athens-08-12-2011.pdf

Villefranche

Kusadasi (Ephesus)

Barcelona

Enjoy!!

Delos Island is available, but maybe the time won't work for you...

Has any other DCL tour sold out since Newfoundland Sailor posted the list?
I still have almost two weeks until I can book

I am interested in Villefranche "Monaco, Monte Carlo and Eze" (I hope it's not sold out) We would also like to do DCL's "Ephesus & Aquapark" - is the water park Adaland? Should I try to look for a cheap private morning tour of Ephesus and do the water park on our own (entry is one quarter of DCL total tour price and includes transfers from Kusadasi) but I am concerned about poor public transport options and being late back to the ship.

We have private tours booked for Florence/Pisa, Rome and Athens. We are preparing to do Mykonos and Valetta on our own.

Any advice gladly accepted.

I am pretty sure when I was on yesterday that there were many more tours sold out. Why don't I update that post today and then update just before you book? Hopefully that would help.

I have updated the sold out/availability page for anyone wanting an up-date on excursions and Palo. (Post #1210 on this thread)

Let me know if you need any more info.

I'll update the post this weekend and again closer to the booking time for first timers.
