    Rome excursions

    I haven't done the Hop On-Hop Off in Rome, but have in other European cities. It's a good way to get an overview of a city for the first time. But if you have something in particular you want to see - Vatican, Coloseum, etc. - just plan on on going directly to one or two of those, because you can spend all day at just one. The cruise ship does have a transfer-only bus, for $119 round trip, and it's booked just like an excursion - either pre book now or wait until you get on board.

    Rome excursions

    Hi there! What date in June? We’re in the Epic next week, leaving June 3rd! We’ve done Rome before on a precruise land stay, so we are taking a taxi into Rome and exploring a few places we missed. A lot depends on what you want to do and see. From what I understand, the cruise ship’s bus drops off in one location which may or may not be close to what you are interested in seeing. Rome is pretty safe, but as in any big city, be on the alert for pickpockets. If you’re uncomfortable traveling independently, a ship tour is a good option - safety in numbers, they say. Other options are a private or semi-private (shared) small group tour, depending on what you want to do. Whatever you choose, have fun!

    DAILY DOCK FOR MAY, 2018

    Welcome to Memorial Day Weekend! We've got a hot summer day ahead, but rain and cold move in for tomorrow. In fact, the forecast is so bleak that we are postponing our annual BBQ. Jackie - Stay safe during the storm. It's not even June, and the tropics are heating up already. I hope it's not a preview of things to come. I have a client flying home from the Keys tonight. Keeping my fingers crossed that they get off safely. In any event, it sounds like a perfect weekend for interior home decorating. Have a great weekend, CruiseCrazies!

    DAILY DOCK FOR MAY, 2018

    Miranda - First, I want to say THANK YOU SO MUCH for posting up another rave review of my travel agent services on my Travel Leaders profile. It means a lot, and I am grateful for the support! We have been having a couple of steaming HOT days, too, but all of that will change tonight when the temps drop to the 50's and rain comes in for tomorrow. I'd better get out there and enjoy the beautiful weather while I can! I'm glad to hear it was only your TV that got blasted and not you or anyone else in the neighborhood. Lightening can be dangerous and kind of exciting all at the same time.
  6. I know - it's early, but I thought I'd get the conversation going, anyway. If you can't make our cruise in 2019, this would be a good place to talk about the following year.

    DAILY DOCK FOR MAY, 2018

    Kelly and Jackie - My husband is a bubbly, happy guy early mornings, and thinks by 10:00 am "the day's half over!" Once up, I do love early mornings, but I'm no where near bright eyed and bushy tailed, but awake in a quiet, contemplative kind of way. Once I've had coffee, I can be social! 😁 On the other end of the scale, the only way to make it through the night's festivities is to take a power nap in the afternoon.😄

    Fort Lauderdale - Beyond the Beach

    Thanks, Andi. Bonnet House is in my write-up. I fixed the typo that called it “Bennet”🙂. Yes, the artworks are amazing. They do struggle for funds to keep the place operating and maintained, and it would be a shame if they ever had to close their doors.
