Hello to ShellB8585 and Mousewife, to Somerset and Wales,

we are still working on our booking. But we have already booked our vacation in Yorkshire this May/June. We will go there by ferry (Amsterdam/Newcastle and Harwich/Rotterdam). So it is kind of a cruise vacation too.

Hi all just thought i'd check in. This is a very quiet thread! hopefully the ship wont be as empty as it seems.

Have you all decided on what you're wanting to do in each port?

Sure is quiet...I noticed on line the other day that all of the Conceriarage levels are gone but it seems like all other cabin types are available still...I honestly don't mind a not full ship but this does seem to qualify as empty
We are going to do the Monaco, Monte Carlo and Eze tour, we were supposed to stop at Villefranche on our Med cruise in 2011 but we were diverted to Palma because of high winds (they could not get the tenders to shore) and we have been to Monte Carlo before so we want to get our son's picture in some of the same places as when he was about 3 years old.
In Palma I think we are going to do Valldemossa, Deia & Soller..we did Drach Caves & Porto Cristo last time we were there(it is amazing but we want to try something new this time.
What are you thinking about?
Steph

Well, Having never visited any of these places we're spoilt for choice. Thinking of doing the Monaco, Monte Carlo and Eze tour too in Villefranche - but also tempted with nice so we'll see what I actually book.

Love the idea of the pictures! Will have to remember this when we have children.

In Palma I am contemplating going a little DIY and just doing the hop on hop off bus tour then some time at the beach

My DH has been to Nice and we went to Nice to catch the train last time we were there...I was not impressed at all for what it is worth. DH LOVES Eze and I can't wait to see it...
The Drach caves and Porto Cristo were so so amazing..we actually thought about getting off the boat in Palma and staying for a few days in Porto Cristo...but changed our minds and are going to go spend some time in Valencia after the cruise...
I don't think you can really go wrong with any of the choices

If we will join you we will probably stay on board when the ship is in Palma. We all have been there before and would rather like to inhale the Disney spirit. Valldemossa, Deià and Sóller are all great. Nice little villages and wonderful views. You will love the landscape. The surrounding Tramuntana mountains are the best part of Mallorca. To bad you can not combine it with the train ride from Sóller either to Palma or Puerto de Sóller. This is really good too.

I had a look at Eze (never heard about it before). It looks nice. We thought about going to Nice by train. What about Villefranche itself? It is worth a visit?

My Cousin has said Villefranche is really lovely to potter around but it is also very easy to catch the train to Nice or Monaco.

Thank you for the hints and information. Maybe a rental car and a drive to Grasse (should not take longer than one hour) would be nice. Would love to see Grasse, but I am not sure if July is the best month to visit Grasse. Will do some research over the weekend.

Hi Everyone, thought I'd stop by and see if there were a few more of us on board! We did a 7 day Med cruise last time the Magic was over and found that there were mainly Spanish families on board, so I'm sure we won't have the ship to ourselves, although that would give us a good chance of an upgrade

With regards to shore excursions, we got off at Villefranche and took the bus to Monaco. The trains had been cancelled that day due to a problem on the line. the buses were full to standing room, but it was August, so a busier time and with no train running! Anyway, it was only €1 each way and they ran frequently. We did the little red land train tour and the oceanography museum. Enjoyed both. The port of Villefranche was very pretty and had a little beach, so this time I think we will just explore the little shops and stay in port.
Palma is a city we know well, so we took a trip into old Palma to see the Cathedral and the rambles. There were lots of excursions available, but it is very easy to arrange your own. As I am travelling with just my daughter this time, we are going to take advantage of all the ship has to offer

Hello everybody,

Yesterday I booked our cruise . I travel with my 13y Son and 11y daughter. We were on the Magic in 2007, for the 12 day Mediteranean. The ship will be a little bit bussier, sorry about that

See/sea you
