Hi there! I see from your ticker that you are on a 7 night next week? If so could you please post back with dining rotations and any other details you can remember? Please?

Hello!
I'm very new to the forums and new to DCL.
I'll be heading to Venice for the Mediterranean cruise mid-July.
What should I plan to wear on all the excursions / port adventures? Even though we will be with a tour group, I don't want to look totally touristy.
I'm traveling with DH, DS 10 & DD 8.

Thanks!

Anything goes just do not wear cruise hosts or t shirts, there a give away and take off the sticker for tours, just do not stand out, if you have an Alaska hat on from the last cruise you will be seen. Church's require cover ups on arms shoulders, and legs above knees.

It will be hot hot hot so prepare.

It is hot over there so remember that sundresses ( past knees) are cooler than Capri pants. For kids, they do not have to wear pants, just longer shorts. At some point, you will realize that you will look like a tourist, whatever you wear. Wear what is comfortable!

I am sure this has been mentioned in one of the above posts, but I would recommend a money belt. My husband and I each had one of these, each carrying two passports in it. We didn't run into a problem, but were constantly warned about "gypsies" or scams, and we kept larger bills, our Key to the World card and passports in our money belts.

Was on the Med cruise earlier this summer, in fact....one month ago today, I was in Villefranche drinking wine.

I bought a Pac Safe "fanny pack". It's a super thin pack that actually fits under your clothes. No one had any clue I was carrying anything under there. Best investment I made!

I need a BIG favor from someone going on the Med cruise in the next couple of weeks, please. There is a bartender in Keys, his name is Hadi. My DH and I sat with him every night after dinner (after we dropped DD off at Oceaneer's Club). I really want his last name. He's a SUPER nice guy. You can tell him that Holly and Russell from the first Med cruise are asking for his name....I'm sure he'd remember us.
Anyway - if someone can do that and report back, I'd be forever grateful!

Didn't have trouble with the gypsies trying to get my money--they went after my leftovers from lunch! It was in Firenze a couple weeks ago. We had lunch at the "recommended" place from our tour guide in Firenze at Piazza Santa Croce. We ordered too much food and figured we'd take it with us for the long bus rides to Pisa and back to the ship. As soon as I stepped out of the restaurant patio, 2 were all over me trying to grab my leftovers speaking somthing that didn't sound especially Italian. They must've been watching me for a while as we were packing up. Tried to ignore them and walk away, but they kept following me. After about a minute I got tired of them hounding me and I let out a few loud and firm "no's" to their faces that made them back off.
