How is everybody doing? We are so quiet!!! Who's doing DCL excursion? I still planning mine. The only one I still haven't decided is Naples, I don't want to see Pompeii so I maybe need someone advice.

Hi everybody!
Linetbo, I don't know about the Tea with Alice, but last year, my best friend did this cruise and there wasn't the character's breakfast.
And for the excursions, I think I'll do the DCL ones. I just don't know which!
About Naples, I've always heard that Capri is truly beautiful.
Or the Treasures of Naples tour seems pretty good too.

And did you know what you want to do in Rome?I like The Best of Rome the only thing I don't like is the price. For France the Ezze Monaco and Monte Carlo. And for Pisa maybe the one that include Florence.

We're still very much in the planning stages. Since it's DS's college graduation present, we're mostly leaving what we do up to him.

Except for Rome and Naples, we're going to just walk around each city on our own.

In Rome, DS wants to see mostly ancient Rome, so we may take a private tour and then spend a few hours on our own.

For Naples, we plan to see Pompeii and may work in Capri.

I am super happy to say that we have our Rome excursion booked!! Private tour and I'm super stoked!!! We can take up to 8 more people on the tour with us if anyone is interested? I have posted the price breakdown previously.

I think for the others we are going to do DCL tours, going to go to Monaco and see the museum for DS. In Naples we decided we are NOT hiking but we will go see Pompeii... I think the first day we will do a 1/2 day tour so we can keep those costs down and if we want to stay out and about when the tour is over we can putz around town on our own.

If anyone is interested in the Rome tour, let me know

Hi Linetbo! Once in Rome, I think we will mostly tour the Vatican. The best of all would have been to tour both the Vatican and San Angel Castle, but I didn't see any tour with these two options. I think we will finally take the "Vatican Museums, Sistine Chapel and St. Peter's Basilica" one. As you did, I found the tour to be very pricey, so I hope we will enjoy it :D

I tought about it yesterday, and maybe we will just take a walk on naples and tour on our own because the day in Rome is juste the day before and if we take this tour, it will last ten hours, I'm affraid that we will be too tired to enjoy an excursion in Naples :S

Hi all!

We've just booked our first Disney Cruise today! So excited!!

There's me, my DH and our daughter who will be 4.

Me & DH have cruised about 5 years ago (once on Thomson and once on Ocean Village) and we went to DLParis last month and seeing DD with the characters was amazing - so had to get a bit of Disney in our next holiday too!

Really looking forward to the trip!

Planning on doing our own trips - so far looking at going to Monaco - to the aquarium and on the land train from Villefranche and a boat trip around Capri from Naples. With DD being 4, we're only planning on half day tours - hoping to be back on the ship by 2ish everyday

I'm a big planner so I'm sure my next 9 months will be filled with various itineraries until we eventually decide on what we want to do!

Have joined the FB page and signed up for FE

We're coming from the UK, so not booked flights yet, but planning on arriving on the Friday and staying overnight - looking for hotels at the moment - where's everyone else staying? Will be happy to share taxi/minibus to the port if others are there too

Welcome,hoping to meet you. My daughter is crazy about the British accent (because one direction). I am sad that I don't have enough time to go to England. But after the cruise we are going to Paris for 3 days.

We just found out the pope will be in Rome the day we are there. The Vatican museum and St. Peter's Basilica will be closed in the morning so we will head to the coliseum first. Thought I'd pass that along.

Our son will be just under a year & a half at the time of the cruise. Debating on if he's too young to go or if we need to wait a few years. Thoughts?

Now that flights are booked.. it is time to concentrate on what excursions we would like to take.

Does anyone know if certain tours fill up faster than others?
