Pam, how'd the shopping go? I love cruise/vacation shopping!
Sandi, are you on the Crown's TA next week? What a terrific itinerary -- Alexandria and Istanbul on a cruise that starts from Florida -- you're really covering a lot of ground! Are you going to stay in Venice post-cruise, or have you been there before?
Oh Annie, I WISH I was on the Crown through to Venice! We're only on the first 14 days, ending in Rome. The whole reason we got this cruise was for roundtrip airfare between Rome and Atlanta. We purchased tickets for May 12 and then November 18 for our fall Greek Isles/Med Transatlantic on the Crown. By doing that we saved enough on the airfare to pay for the 14 day cruise this spring.
So therefore we couldn't stay on the ship until Venice, had to get off in Rome. We'll see Venice this fall instead. Alexandria and Istanbul have to wait, too.
Guess what, I forgot to watch the FLL webcam yesterday! I missed the Crown going out on its last Caribbean cruise this spring. And plenty of other ships, too, I'll bet. DARN! Better check it today to make up for it.
