Thanks Kevin. I'll check it out & start making a list!

Oh Darn. I just remembered Positano is our last stop. We have Pompeii in the morning, then Sorrento, then Positano.

We should have totally done this. Actually, we did (for Sorrento), but we never made it Ok it's funny now but it wasn't so funny at the time we missed Sorrento.

Rome
For anyone who might be looking for lunch in Rome near the Spanish Steps, a few years ago I stayed very close to the Spanish Steps for a 3 day trip and we ate at this cute little restaurant with delicious Buffalo Mozzarella, Antipasti and Pizza Margherita. They also had stewed meats (like lamb shank, etc), but we didn't order that type of stuff. The wine here was excellent. I went back and looked for the name.

Based on our pictures, my husband told me it's called "Enoteca Bar." I'm like, honey, that means wine shop.

It's actually called L'Enoteca Antica di Via Della Croce, and it's about a 3-minute walk from the Spanish Steps. It's pretty delicious.

I know we need covered knees and shoulders to visit churches. Do we need shoes/sandals that cover our toes?

As far as I noticed, there were no restrictions on footware in churches. The only requirements I noticed were shoulders and knees covered, and baseball caps off. ( hears several people by the Sistine Chapel being told to remove caps -- I don't know if other places have the same rule.)

Not sure if July & August cruisers have their Barcelona hotel booked, but Living Social UK has a deal for the Hotel Fira Palace for 195 GBP for 2 nights, with daily breakfast.

I wore flip flops and they were fine with that ... we all wore tshirts to cover our shoulders and 3/4 lengths to cover our legs.

I reported it as inappropriate. I pointed out that if you don't want reviewers to slander etc then you should not allow responses to slander!

I would suggest the reviewer go to the Amalfi Coast board on Trip Advisor and post what happened there along with the response info.

I did not use them, but met a couple on the ship who did and they raved about them.

I reported management's response as inappropriate.

Let us know what happens.

To the cruisers in July and August---

Would someone be so kind as to take a picture of the luggage storage counter that is newly available in port after disembarkation and post it in one of the threads (or TR)? There is now a counter right next to where the suitcases are lined up after you get off the Magic.

We are planning on doing the WBTA or EBTA next year (haven't decided) and would great appreciate this information. I had my camera put away when I saw it and I wished I'd snapped a picture to get the info, company name, prices, etc.

TIA

They go around one night before and look for the doors to feature. There was one DIS door in both the Greek and the Italy ones, so DISers, continue to represent!
We got to be one of the chosen doors on the Greek cruise. They sent a lovely gift bag to our room the next day!
