Its not sad news though - have finally got everything sorted, and am booked on the two week transatlantic in May. Everything confirmed last night and flights already booked - was an expensive evening!!

Have a fabulous cruise, and look forward to reading trip reports all about it.
Congratulations!
The same year I retire I am SO taking a transatlantic!

That sounds very much like my husband and daughter! Just to give you a clue, the only way I can get them to come into Rome with DD2 and I is to have a car available to take them around because they don't do heat and sun very well... Which is ironic because they constitute the "Greek" half of my family

Hello Becky and Family, welcome aboard!

Hello again to our fabulous cruising mates!

Didn't we have a name for our group? Is anyone still interested in that? I remember something about a last flamenco in the med, or something along those lines....

I was just reading about booking a group Palo Brunch. Is that something we are interested in? There can be 12 people

I have solved my "how do I get my 'grumpy when its hot' husband to experience Rome with me" problem... For about the same price as a private excursion, I am flying with him to Rome for three days during my Easter break. I still can't believe it! I will still be taking DD2 into Rome for the day on the train from Civi when the cruise docks there, but now we will be more relaxed!

Hiya I would like to know if we have a name as I will then try to incorporate it in my FE gifts (I have decided I WILL participate!!) - I vaguely think we talked about some ideas early on (perhaps they are on the old thread) but I can't remember what they were!!

I feel as though I have been missing out on the Palo brunch thing (we did Palo for dinner on our first cruise but haven't been since as we have had the boys) - I would like to say I'd join you, but my boys are a bit funny when it comes to the kids clubs (they love them when they go on their terms, but I'm not sure they will be happy going if I send them - I think they think they will be missing out on something) - I will talk to Steve and the boys and see what they think (I'd hate to say we would join you all and then let you down because they don't want to go to the club).

Thats fantastic news about your Rome trip - you will be the 'expert' after Easter, so you can expect lots of questions upon your return!!

Great that you have decided to join in the FE Amy :-)

Debbie- I'd be up for a Palo Brunch if we have enough interest. I don't drink so this would be more my cup of tea than the Mixology class :-)

I will call DCL soon to see what is required to set up a brunch. I don't suppose anyone has a NON 800 type number? I can only call direct from here.

I had to call last night to enquire about Adventures by Disney (which the idea has promptly gone out f the window once they gave me a quote!), my phone converts 0800 numbers into normal numbers so it rang 01242 983 196- but that's from UK- not sure about Greece?

Thanks for trying! It seems to me a digit is missing. I will find something! Come on, tell us the quote

Lol- they quoted £1,400 per person to add Adventures by Disney to our booking ( this just would give us planned excursions with an Adventure by Disney tour guide at the ports). My family could cruise another 2-3 times for that!

Booked our flights and have 3 days in Barcelona before the cruise, can anyone recommend a good, reasonably priced, hotel?
