Just booked this cruise for Myself, Jessica (35 next month), My Mum Mary 61 and my 7 year old daughter Mia-Mai.

We did the same route in 2008 and loved it, have even visited a family from California we met on board!

We've never done a meet up before!

Welcome Jessica! Good to have you aboard.


Liberty6201 -sorry I can't see your name anywhere! Can you change my room number for the FE to 6634 - secret verandah room - read about them in the disboards - they are slightly obstructed in the top corner of the balcony but otherwise exactly the same as a 5c and $420 cheaper!

Staring to look at FE gifts now!

ours doesn't open until 11th May Got all excited after I paid as I had an email from my TA saying I could book! Only thing I really want is a Palo Brunch, fingers crossed that is still available.

What are you looking to book?

We've booked the port adventures and a palo brunch on the second sea day. We might want to do it on the first day as well but that's up to my parents. Those brunch times are going pretty fast though, Mum wanted one at 11 but those were gone by the time we got in. Here's the list of our port adventures:

Villefranche, France – Highlights of Monaco & Monte Carlo

La Spezia, Italy – Discovering Florence

Civitavecchia, Italy – St. Angel’s Castle, St. Peter’s Basilica and Free Time

Naples, Italy – Value Package – Sorrento & Pompeii


Good luck on the palo brunch when your booking window opens!

Hi there!

We too are booked for this cruise. Me (43), DW (44), DS (18) and DD (15).

Paid off balance on Friday!!

Unfortunately, we can't book shore excursions until end of May. Just wondered if anyone had any experience of these and whether they are worth the money.

At the moment we are considering the following:
- taxi to Monaco for half day with remainder of day in Villefrenche ( which I've been told is very nice)
- not going to bother with Florence or Pisa.
- considering doing Rome DIY by getting the train.
- will probably go with the official excursion for Pompeii.

Any advice or comments would be appreciated.

TIA

Apparently you can get the train from Villefranche to Monaco - we did a disney trip last time and loved Monaco but would consider the train this time. Villefranche was very picturesque - we have a photo taken getting off the ship and it looks photoshopped! We did the train to Rome and it was sooooo easy. Also did the official excursion to Pompeii and it was an amazing day - we did the one that included Vesuvius - dont think that we would worry about Vesuvius again - not too much to see - plus it was misty so we saw nothing! Pompeii was brill though.
