I"m finally off and soon to be on my way

Luggage - packed...not without one more check in piece than expected
international drivers permits - in hand.
picking up kids in 1/2 an hour
going to airport to sit because based on this weather delays are a certainty...hopefully we get to Barcelona some time before the ship leaves

So since I can't update posts at the beginning I'll have to do mine here. I have two plus days of travelogue to write tonight. Will be three by then. Once i do that I will copy and paste. Was just gonna feed off of Kim's but it will be very disjointed with hers at the beginning and mine at end

WooHoo... Loving the updates! Thanks for sharing. Sorry the cars didn't work out. I can't wait to see pictures of your apartment. I love House Hunter's International so, I can't wait to see what it looks like. Have a great cruise...

So I have eagerly been following your ptr and am loving this tr....being the ocd person I am...the one point that has jumped out at me is you talking about the dryers on 6 & 7 being broken...that would put a HUGE kink in my packing plan...could you elaborate? Or where was the board post?

Thanks so much! Enjoy your trip and Safe travels...I will wave to you as you get off and we get on the boat on the 27th!

The dryers had issues on the cruise previous to ours. Appears to be fixed...


Heading to Lucca. Rome in limo had wifi in the VAN!!!!!! Having a great time...weather beautiful. Villefranche was clouded over but humid. I was comfortable tho. Today sunny and amazing!! Will try to type stuff to update in van tomorrow (if they have wifi).

Updated post 4, I think. Not finished with embarkation day. Never had enough time or wifi to update during the cruise. Ask questions if you have them!!

For the next Greece cruisers: our pirate night was changed to the 2nd to last sea day (needed to be 12mi out to sea for fireworks) and semi formal night the night of Malta. This actually worked well for our dining rotation : PLA. Both formal and semiformal nights were in Lumieres and pirate night was in Parrot Cay.

Navigators would be helpful if you have time to scan them.

Best port?
Best shopping port?
Best excursion private or DCL?
Anything you wouldn't do in retrospect?

Thanks!!

Go back to page 1.....I had saved pages so that the actual TR can be read chronologically.

And yes, that was how it originally was so don't be surprised if it changes. Their logic makes sense. We didn't find this out until we saw the navigator on the first day that lists out the days.

I saved all the navigators and will eventually scan them in!!

Best port: hard to say. I love Malta...but enjoyed seeing all the new ports as well. We truly got to see new stuff at all the repeat ports we went to!!

Shopping? We had zero time to shop. I had to push the issue in Malta to get a Hard Rock Cafe pin for an aunt of mine who collects them. This was kind of how we built our tours, tho....I didn't like the atmosphere in Turkey. Same haggling that was in Tunisia. I can't stand that.

Best excursion was the private tour by Rome in Limo in La Spezia. Stefano was our driver, but he was AMAZING. We literally got a tour of his neighborhood. We went to Lucca...he lives there...and saw his dad getting on his scooter. More on that tour later !!!

Go cars. Don't do them. See previous post and wait for Mindy to comment on them.
